We are making this decision to help protect our staff, our patients, our families, and our community.

You can still email us at and we will try to return communication as soon as possible.

You can still order your contacts from and have them shipped to your home.

Thank you for your understanding during these uncertain times. Together we can make a difference in controlling this pandemic.

Take care and stay safe!

Clarifye Digital Eye Exam


The Digital Exam that shows you more.

A  Clarifye Exam is a more advanced and precise digital Eye Exam for your  best possible vision using the best technology we could find.  We can  digitally measure the FINGERPRINTof the OUTSIDE of your eye and how light passes THROUGH  your eye.  This accurate vision assessment helps the eye doctor pinpoint  your vision prescription for clearer, sharper vision for both day and  night.  This, along with the Optomap Retinal Scan, gives the optometrist a complete picture of your Eye Health and Visual Potential.  Schedule your Eye Exam in Saugus today!


Optomap Retinal Scan

 The Optomap Retinal Exam is an Eye  Scan for Early Disease Detection for your Eyes and your overall health.   It documents a fingerprint of the INSIDE of your eye allowing us to  follow changes over time.  It can detect and monitor signs of Macular  Degeneration, Glaucoma, Cataracts, as well as Systemic  Conditions such  as Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, and Tumors.  Without a  Comprehensive retinal exam, potential problems may remain undetected.   It takes less than 5 minutes and has NO SIDE EFFECTS because NO drops  are needed like when your eyes are dilated. 


Glasses in an hour

 Don't forget about your glasses.  Being right next to LensCrafters, most our patients are able to get  their new glasses in about an hour. Plus, LensCrafters has a huge  selection of the most popular designer frames to choose from. Only  LensCrafters uses the exclusive AccuFit Digital Measurement System to  craft lenses more accurately. LensCrafters’ exclusive AccuFit™ Digital  Measurement System measures your eyes five times more precisely than  traditional methods, down to a tenth of a millimeter. Meaning you get to  see your world more clearly. 


Medical "Red Eye" Visits

 Our doctors are all licensed to  prescribe medications to treat common eye infections like "pink eye",  and can help you manage your ocular allergies and dry eye symptoms. Our  Comprehensive eye exam always includes screenings for glaucoma,  cataracts, and macular degeneration. 


Contact Lens Evaluations

 In addition to your health  evaluation, we offer the latest contact lens technology.  Our doctors  prescribe all brands of contact lenses, including the “hard to fit”  lenses for astigmatism, multifocals, or rigid gas permeable lenses.  Our  huge trial inventory usually lets you leave with contacts the same day  as your exam.
