Supporting Your Eye Health
A comprehensive eye exam safeguards your vision and ocular health. During your eye exam, we can detect changes in vision or developing eye health issues. Even if you haven’t noticed any vision or health effects, issues could be progressing.
For patients ages 18–64, we recommend an eye exam at least every two years. We recommend annual eye exams for patients over 65. It’s also essential to bring your children in for their regular eye exams.
Our Eye Exams
During your eye exam, we will test your vision and ocular health. These tests include assessing your visual acuity and refraction. Refraction tests can determine if correction is needed for issues like nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism.
If we discover any issues, we will discuss them with you and recommend a customized plan for your eye health. At Pinnacle Eyecare, we offer several treatment options to help our patients.
Our specialty eye care includes:
- Dry eye therapy
- Eye disease diagnosis & management
- Myopia control
- Glaucoma management
- Laser eye surgery consultation
- Relief for digital eye strain
If you have any questions before, during, or after your exam, our team is happy to answer them. Give us a call if you’d like to talk about your eye health.
Common Eye Diseases
In addition to checking your vision during your exam, we will also identify any signs of eye disease. These conditions can often fly under the radar if patients aren’t visiting for regular eye exams. If not identified and treated early, eye diseases can severely damage the eye and, in some cases, cause vision loss.
Here are a few of the eye diseases we’ll typically test for:
Glaucoma is typically caused by increased fluid pressure within the eye, damaging the optic nerve. If left untreated, this disease can cause severe vision loss or blindness. Unfortunately, it’s common for patients not to notice any symptoms of glaucoma before damage has been done.
During your eye exam, we will test for glaucoma and provide glaucoma management solutions if needed.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of vision loss in people over 50. AMD is caused by damage or thinning of the macula (the central part of the retina). This disease affects the central vision of your eye, making it hard to focus clearly on objects.
There are two different types of AMD, dry and wet. Dry AMD is more common, but rarely shows symptoms. Although wet AMD is less common, it’s more serious.
Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness worldwide. They occur when the lens of the eye becomes clouded. For proper treatment, the clouded lens must be removed from the eye, reducing the patient’s blurry vision. Cataracts can occur at any age, even at birth.

The staff at Pinnacle are great and the office was extremely comfortable! The environment was welcoming and I actually forgot that this was the first time we ever met! The process was smooth and painless! Dr. King-Smith was very thorough with my exam and made sure he addressed all my questions and concerns. They have a wide selection of different frames and colors, which, I found the perfect ones for me! I left feeling well informed and excited to come back to pick up my new glasses! I felt like I made new friends! Professional, very clean, and friendly! Couldn’t ask for anything more!
I had an amazing experience at Pinnacle Eyecare. It is clear they care about the patient and their eye health. The entire staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Dr. King-Smith took the time to explain the different tests he was doing to help me understand my eye health and what he will continue to monitor each visit. The visit was comprehensive yet efficient, and the office is welcoming and comfortable. I would recommend this to everyone!
Wow! What an amazing office. I have been looking for an eye doctor in Columbus since I moved. Dr. King-Smith is so friendly and inviting! Eye exam was all typical, however what really made them stand apart was the staffs genuine desire to connect with me. We spent time looking for frames that complimented my face and when we got a good pick, I was able to choose a different color! So accommodating and friendly. Also there is an office dog named Max!
This place is amazing. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. My favorite parts were we could request an appointment online and they explained every step of the way. I’ve been going to eye doctors since I was young and this is honestly the best one I’ve been to and I would highly recommend this to anyone and everyone I know.
I had an INCREDIBLE experience with Pinnacle eyecare, and their staff. Professional, down to earth, and friendly. They have great equipment that will give you increased information about your inner eye health that I have not received before at other offices! Hannah at the front desk sets the appointment off right with great customer care. Kyle who helped with my frames was very friendly, and helped me make the most of my insurance benefits. They have a GREAT selection of frames as well. Dr. King-Smith was thorough with my exam, and participated at every part of my appointment from start to finish. I do not have to look any further for eye care. I am very pleased. 10/10. Would HIGHLY recommend. Also, really enjoyed seeing the office dog Max! He is SO sweet and cute!!!
Best experience at an eye doctor, ever. Doctor explained every step he was performing and made me feel comfortable. I felt like I took a mini crash course on the eyes! You can always tell when someone loves what they do, and it felt exactly like that at Pinnacle Eyecare. They took my insurance into consideration the entire time, which is very important to me. I’m very happy to have found great care and so close to me, too.
