Stay on top of your annual eye exams


Our eye exam services



Eyewear today comes in all colors, sizes, brands and styles. In the sea of choices available today, finding the perfect pair of prescription glasses or sunglasses can seem like a daunting process. Our professional opticians have the depth of knowledge and customer service experience to guide you in designing glasses that best suit you. This means choosing the right frame to complement your look and personality and identifying the lenses that will make you see and feel your very best.

Prescription Glasses _ Contact Lenses (Optical)


In Horizon Optical’s expansive selection of eyewear, there is something for everyone. You will find an extensive selection of frames in a variety of colors, sizes, brands, styles and price ranges. Whether you’re looking for modern, rimless or vintage, our products run the gamut from top-line designer frames to the most affordable options for men, women and children. Frames come in a diverse array of materials, including stainless steel, plastic, zyl, titanium and many others, and can be used for either regular prescription eyeglasses or sunglasses. Choosing the right pair of glasses is an important process—well-fitted glasses can relieve strain on your eyes while also making you feel attractive and confident. Our expert opticians can help you understand the many choices you have.



Living in Arizona makes sunglasses an absolute necessity, as prolonged exposure to sunlight can damage your eyes. Horizon Optical offers a wide selection of sunglasses that can be used with prescription or non-prescription shades.

For nonprescription sunglasses, we have many styles and designer frames.

If you’re looking for a pair of sunglasses that can also function as your eyeglasses, we can make shaded lenses in the eyeglasses frame of your choice.


Contact Lenses

At Horizon Optical, we also offer quality services for those who wear contact lenses. Our expert opticians can also train new contact lens wearers on inserting and removing contacts and on caring for your lenses to avoid infections or irritation. We can also walk you through the available lens options and get you started with a simple online service that makes reordering easy.


Fittings and Adjustments

Your face shape and aesthetic tastes are unique to you. Getting fitted and making adjustments to your Horizon eyewear is key to maximizing comfort. Our opticians are specially trained in fitting frames to complement the unique contours of your face. We also offer complimentary adjustments to your glasses, should you feel the need for changes to your eyewear in the future.


Lens Material

The lenses in your glasses can be created from many different materials, including standard plastic, lightweight, impact-resistant or high-index lenses-which work best for strong prescriptions. The ideal lens material will depend on your prescription and whether you need reading glasses, bifocals or glasses for nearsighted vision. Our experienced opticians can help you choose the one that best suits you.


Lens Coating

The external coating of a lens can offer improved nighttime vision along with added cosmetic benefits. Anti-reflective coatings, and blue light filters can get rid of “halos” some may see around lights while also easing the strain on your eye when looking at a computer screen. It also makes it easier for others to see your eyes through the lens.

Annual Eye Exams:  Protect Your Vision and Overall Health 

Your eyes are your window to the world: Keeping them healthy is crucial to maintaining your overall well-being. Regular eye exams are an essential part of taking care of your eyes and ensuring that they are functioning at their best. Your visual needs change as your lifestyle evolves, and even small updates to your prescription every year can make a big impact. Additionally, different frames can give you effortless versatility in your overall look and style.

At Horizon Eye Specialists, we recommend that everyone gets an annual eye exam, regardless of age or visual limitations. During your comprehensive eye exam, our experienced eye doctors will perform a thorough evaluation of your vision, eye health, and overall ocular function. Talking to your eye doctor about your work, hobbies, and daily activities will help them recommend a customized approach to your prescription. Afterward, our opticians can provide personalized recommendations based on your individual needs.


Why Are Annual Eye Exams Important?


Early detection and treatment of eye problems are critical to preserving your vision and preventing serious eye conditions from developing. Many eye diseases, such as glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration, have no noticeable symptoms in their early stages. By the time you experience symptoms, the condition may have already caused irreversible damage to your eyes.

Regular eye exams also play a crucial role in identifying health problems that may not be related to your eyes. Many systemic conditions, such as diabetes and high blood pressure, can affect your eyes and cause vision problems. An annual eye exam can help identify these conditions early on, allowing for prompt medical intervention and management.



What Can You Expect During Your Eye Exam?

Our doctors and staff will perform a series of tests, including:

  • Visual acuity test: measures your ability to see at various distances
  • Eye movement test: assesses how well your eyes work together
  • Eye pressure test: measures the pressure inside your eyes to screen for glaucoma
  • Refraction test: determines if you need glasses or contact lenses
  • Eye health evaluation: examines the inside and outside of your eyes for signs of disease or injury

What type of lenses do I need?

Single Vision Lens
Used to correct nearsightedness or farsightedness. Disadvantage is it only corrects vision for near or far, not both.

Bifocal lenses
Multifocal is a type of intraocular lens (IOL) that is used to replace the natural crystalline lens of your eye during cataract surgery. This IOL is also able to correct presbyopia, a condition in which the ability to see objects in the near range of vision diminishes with age. Presbyopia is what causes many people to begin using reading glasses in their 50s and 60s. The Multifocal IOL corrects vision at multiple distances.

Progressive Lenses
Patients who suffer from cataracts and astigmatism may require special lenses to correct their vision after cataract surgery. Cataract surgery and standard intraocular lenses (IOLs) alone cannot correct astigmatism. A Toric IOL can correct cataracts and correct for the astigmatism creating sharp vision at one range.

Real reviews, from real patients


Tom W

My experience with HES has been exceptional. I am so happy that my doctor suggested them. “Specialists” indeed. And not just in the realm of eye and vision issues and improvement, but the physicians and staff are especially professional, friendly, knowledgeable, compassionate, and dutiful. The staff’s demeanor alone helped “calm me” when I finally accepted my need for cataract surgery.

Horizon Phoenix Testimonials

Seth M

WOW - fantastic experience from start to finish! I was a first-time patient and have been to several eye doctors over the years and would easily put Horizon Eye at the top of the list. The entire team is quick, professional, and knowledgeable. I was in and out quickly with minimal waiting and without sacrificing the thoroughness of the exam. To top it all off, the view from the office is heavenly. Highly recommend!

The entire procedure was done very professionally by all the staff involved. I had no discomfort whatsoever. It was a snap. I was given a special lens that used U/V light to customize. All went well, and I have 20/20 vision in that eye. I couldn't be happier.

A very organized and efficient operation! Everyone is well-trained. They ask for changes to your address, insurance, etc. every single time. Good job! They follow up with reminders for appt. I had such a positive experience, my husband is starting the process next month. I highly recommend this center.

Finally made the decision to do Lasik after having glasses since the third grade. Absolutely love my results!! I was seeing fairly well right after the quick procedure and by the next day, my vision was 20/20. Fully recommend Dr. Duncan who did an amazing and professional job.

The technicians and Dr Rockwell are excellent. They answer questions and treat the patient with respect. I have confidence in Dr Rockwell's careful diagnosis and treatment of suspected glaucoma.

Both surgeries (left then right eyes) went very smoothly and the care I received each time was wonderful. My results after my lens replacement are beyond my wildest expectations. I am so grateful I chose Horizon Eye Specialists for my surgery and I highly recommend Dr. Levin and his staff/faculty.
