Services We Provide

If you need an eye or vision exam, we can offer these services during your first visit and learn more about the current condition of our eyes following that initial examination.

If the vision exam reveals that you need corrective accessories, we can provide them. We can also help you browse our selection of contact lenses and eyeglasses until you find the accessories that you are comfortable wearing. Thanks to our selection of frames and lenses, you can improve your vision without compromising your style.

In lieu of wearing corrective accessories, you may prefer LASIK surgery because it offers a permanent solution to your vision problems. Although we do not offer LASIK surgery, an eye doctor on our team can handle your post-operative care to help ensure your recovery progresses as expected.

Optometry Services

Our optometrists use the latest tools and technology used to treat eye-related disorders. We have experience treating mild to severe cases of conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, and conjunctivitis. We also provide specialized eye care services such as sports vision tests and computer vision treatment. Our patients have also turned to our optometry specialists when considering surgery options such as LASIK.

Patients rely on Karns Vision to provide personalized eye care. We take our time with each patient to ensure they are receiving the best possible treatment. Our Knoxville optometry office accepts both scheduled routine appointments and emergency care visits. Staff members are ready to answer all of your questions at the time of scheduling, including what types of insurance plans are accepted.

Advanced Eye Care Exams

Our eye doctors rely on advanced diagnostics to administer vision and eye exams to patients. During each exam, patients are asked about any symptoms they are experiencing. Vision tests determine the prescription strength you need while eye function tests evaluate depth perception, light responsiveness, color vision, and more.

Based on the results of your eye exam, our optometry team may recommend corrective lenses or contact lenses. Your level of refractive error helps us determine whether glasses or contacts suit you best. We provide different types of contact lenses to patients, including soft lenses, rigid gas permeable lenses, and hybrid lenses. Our eye doctor will recommend a specific type of contact lenses to improve your vision without aggravating any eye condition symptoms.
