Comprehensive Eye Exams

Midland Eye Care provides a complete eye evaluation of eye health with every eye examination. This service is provided at the same cost as a typical exam with an optometrist who only performs vision testing.
  • Low Vision

    The doctor will perform a functional eye exam that assesses how a person's particular vision impairment affects his or her daily living. This will determine if low vision optical devices, large print reading materials, or better lighting can help the person function more effectively.

  • Vision Field Testing

    This part of the exam can detect dysfunction in your central or peripheral vision which may be caused by various medical conditions including glaucoma, stroke, brain tumors, or other neurological deficits.

  • Color Vision

    There are two different types of color vision defects. Congenital defects which we are born with and Acquired defects which are acute in nature due to a new medical condition. Both can be tested for at our office using a series of colorful plates.

  • Depth Perception

    This is the part of the exam that measures the ability of the vision system to discern the relative distances of various objects, also known as stereopsis test.

  • Glaucoma Testing

    Tests used to detect glaucoma include Tonometry, the intial test that measures eye pressure, Pachymetry, which measures the thickness of the cornea, and a visual field test which measures peripheral vision. Ocular Coherence Tomography is a non-invasive test that scans the back of the eye to measure for nerve tissue thinning.

Dr. Kimball and our staff love seeing kids! Children should have regular eye exams starting at age 3. 3-6 years of age is the best time to course correct potential long-term eye conditions.

Annual eye exams are then recommended for kids who have eye conditions or wear corrective lenses.

At least one eye exam every two years is recommended for all children to ensure they can perform their best in school, sports, and activities.

Adults Over 40

If you are over 40 years of age, you have likely noticed some changes in your vision.

Beginning in the early to mid-forties, most adults may start to experience problems with their ability to see clearly at close distances, especially for reading and computer tasks. This normal aging change in the eye’s focusing ability, called presbyopia, will continue to progress over time.

Most adults who wear corrective lenses will begin to need progressive lenses. The Opticians in Dr. Kimball’s office are all very experienced and will work with you to help find the right progressive lens or contact lens solution.

Senior Citizens

Annual eye exams for senior citizens are especially important. Dr. Kimball will examine for issues common with the elderly like glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts.

As we age, cataracts are a normal evolution of the aging eye. Dr. Kimball screens for cataracts as a regular part of all senior citizen eye exams.

Eye sight in senior citizens can change dramatically as the years pass, requiring regular exams to ensure you and/or your loved ones can see well for driving, reading, and activities they enjoy.

  • I highly recommend Dr. Paul Kimball for your family's eye care.  My teenage daughter woke up on a Sunday morning in excruciating pain and barely able to open her eyes.  I was about to take her to the emergency room when I thought I would try to give Dr. Kimball's office first.  I was happy to find out that they did indeed have an emergency number that I could call.  To my surprise, when I called Dr. Kimball, himself, answered.  He was out of town that morning, but offered to meet us at his office in a couple hours.  He was able to treat my daughter's rather complicated condition that a medical doctor may not have known how to treat.  We are very thankful for his commitment to his patients, and that he was willing to go above and beyond for us. We are confident that you will have a fantastic experience at his office.  Dr. Kimball's staff is second to none!

  • I visited Midland Eye Associates for the first time due to a contact problem.  I left my eye doctor of 20 yrs as I thought they were unorganized and impersonal.  Making the appointment was a pleasant experience over the phone.  The receptionist was friendly, polite and genuinely happy to help.  My surprise was when I entered the office,  the entire staff addressed me by name as if they knew me for years!   Dr Paul Kimball took the time to discuss my problems and work with me over the next several weeks (with MANY different samples) making sure the contacts were the right choice.  I highly recommend Dr Paul Kimball at Midland Eye Associates!
