Comprehensive Eye Examinations
Comprehensive Eye Exams in West Bend, WI
Using the latest technology available, your eye examination will include several of the following tests & procedures:
Stereopsis (depth perception)/Color Vision Testing: These two entrance tests give the doctor baseline information regarding the status of the ocular system. Stereopsis testing can help detect lazy eye or amblyopia that may have previously been undiagnosed.
Autorefraction: This is a machine that objectively gives an estimate of your prescription as well as the curvature of your cornea with no input of your own. The result is typically compared to your current prescription to give a good idea of what sort of changes are happening within your eyes. This can be very useful in assisting children, patients with large prescription changes, or patients that have a language barrier.
Tonometry (Eye Pressure Testing): This test allows us to evaluate your risk for glaucoma by measuring the fluid pressure inside the eye. With our device called the ICare Tonometer, we are able to accurately measure the pressure WITHOUT THE AIR PUFF OR DROPS. Because the procedure only lasts a second and is non-invasive, it is a great way to get measurements on children as well as adults who may not enjoy the air puff method.
Visual Field Test: This test measures your peripheral vision using advanced instrumentation called an auto perimeter. Throughout the test, you are asked to respond to a series of lights in your peripheral vision. The results of this baseline testing are very meaningful for the doctor. In some cases, abnormal results on this testing could potentially indicate changes from glaucoma, history of a stroke, or even a tumor in the brain or eye.
Binocular Vision Testing: We test how your eyes work together as a team and their overall coordination to be sure your vision is comfortable throughout the day.
Refraction: This procedure determines your eyeglass or contact lens prescription. Using our Apple Visual Acuity System, we are able to show letters, numbers, shapes, or even cartoons to get a child's attention throughout the exam. Because the system allows the doctor with the press of a button to show an infinite number of letter pairings, he is able to make sure your results are as perfect as possible. The results won't be biased because you had previously memorized the line. We then make sure to take the time to explain any changes, any adaptation you might expect due to that change, as well as lens recommendations based on your prescription/hobbies/occupation.
Eye Health Exam: The external and internal parts of the eyes are examined using instruments like a slit lamp bio microscope, binocular indirect ophthalmoscope and focusing lenses. We make sure that the results of your eye health exam are discussed in detail regardless if things look normal or abnormal. We want to empower our patients to make healthy lifestyle decisions by educating them about the health of their eyes. Those decisions can make a difference not only in their eyes but also their overall systemic health.
Retinal photography: This testing gives the doctor a baseline image of the back of the eyes and is saved permanently to your health record. Many individuals don't know that changes in the back of the eyes are often not felt or noticed by the patient until they are in advanced stages. Sadly, once vision is lost, rarely does it return to normal. By practicing preventive eye health care and performing these tests on an annual basis, you are ensuring that any retinal conditions are diagnosed and managed/treated properly before things progress.

Advanced Focus was a wonderful place to go for my checkup. Everyone there was incredibly nice and helpful. The Dr was so nice and very informative. Everything he did he would always explain in detail the how's and why's of. The receptionist I dealt with was super friendly and helpful. The skin scan they offer was definitely an eye opener on health and life choices I make. I will be going back next checkup.
Caring and Thorough
I'm so glad I made the switch to Advanced Focus Eye Care! Dr. Bardenwerper put me in a different type of contact lens at my first visit there a few months ago, and honestly, it has improved the quality of my life. Before then, I'd always worn hard, uncomfortable lenses that left me with bloodshot eyes, and I had no idea that wearing contacts could be anything different. Dr. Bardenwerper cared enough to notice and give me another option.
It was my first time at Advanced Focus Eye care. Everybody was very welcoming.One of the first things that I noticed when I was there was the lady at the front desk I believe her name was Nancy she was so kind and very helpful when I was picking out my glasses. The eye Doctor was all so very helpful he told me all the different kinds of contacts I could get and which ones are better. I definitely recommend Advanced Focus Eye Care.
Excellent eye care experience. Everything was explained completely & clearly; very professional & personable staff. Office hours are very accommodating.
I love my new glasses with progressive lenses. The prescription seems just right and I like the way they look on me. Advanced Focus Eyecare did a great job from the eye exam to frame selection to the final frame adjustments. They followed up with me a couple of times after the final appointment to make sure I was satisfied. After getting my previous glasses at a "big box" optical department, I'm glad that I went this time to a place with more personalized service.
I was a first time patient at Advanced Focus Eyecare and I would definitely recommend anyone I know to go there. Dr. Bardenwerper was very kind and gave me his honest opinion when trying contacts for the first time. Nancy was very kind as well, she always had an answer to any questions I had.
Friendly and Professional Service
Had a good experience - new facility, friendly atmosphere, they even completed my rebate form for my contacts.
I have been going to eye doctors for the past 27 years, in 4 different cities, and probably 7 different eye doctors. I have never seen a couple of the instruments Dr. Bardenwerper used, including taking a photo of the back of the eye and the tool he used to check eye pressure...and was impressed with his technology. I have recommended him and Advanced Focus Eye Health Care to others already! Dr. B was patient, and personable. Nancy the optician was also great.
I had a great experience here. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and I really love my new glasses. I was able to get in for an appointment in a few days instead of months with other providers. The appointment went very smoothly and I appreciated the newer technologies in the office compared to my previous eye doctor. I was especially impressed with the follow up to check on my glasses a week after I got them. Very happy to be a customer here.
Quality, professional eye care
Late appointments are available for us working folks. Selection of frames is excellent!
Great service and friendly staff!
I was able to get an appointment the same week I called and they were very welcoming! The eye doctor explains everything and answered any of my questions. He was very personable! They also have a great selection of eye glasses. The pricing can get a little expensive when looking for glasses, but overall I have always had a great experience here!
Best eye exam ever!!
Professional, knowledgeable staff. Educated me on how my overall health can affect my eye health now and in the future. Doctor did all the testing himself. Easy to understand. I hadn't worn contact lenses in nearly 2 years and he got me in some new lenses that I am loving!! I have been recommending this practice to everyone I know!
Friendly and Professional
Happy with the exam and the friendly service.
I have found my new eye-care home!
I wish I could give more than five stars to this company. I will never go anywhere else for my eyecare needs. My happiness with their service was a priority and I was met with great kindness and personability. My glasses look great and the prescription is comfortable. Everything was explained in great detail during my eye exam so I understood what the optometrist was doing and that made me very comfortable. Thank you for all your great work.
The most thorough exam I've ever had. I left feeling I was truly cared about. Not just my eyes but was educated on total health and how you can take action to prevent future trouble. Doctor was very personable and office tech was very helpful
My original Optometrist retired last year. He had been my Dr since I was in my 20's. I had to find a new Optometrist and preferred one closer to home. Luckily, I found Dr Bardenwerper at the Advanced Focus Eyecare. Dr Bardenwerper is extremely thorough and up-to-date. It is always hard to find someone to come up to the standards of your previous doctor. Dr Bardenwerper DOES not only compare to, but exceeded my expectations in quality, concern, and knowledge. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr Bardenwerper and am telling my friends and family how great he is.
Best eye care experience
My first experience with Dr. Bardenwerper was as a customer of an optometrist near my home. A year later I learned he had opened his own practice in West Bend. I did not hesitate driving an extra 30 miles and I scheduled an appointment there. Dr. Bardenwerper was thorough, professional and as kind and patient as I remembered. This experience was even better than my first, two years earlier. His equipment is cutting edge, and I believe, with the advanced digital documentation of my eyes, he will be able to monitor even the slightest changes in the health of my eyes. This is very important to me because of my advanced age and how quickly things can deteriorate. His prices were quite competitive, but his technology far exceeds any I've seen at other optometrists. I would not hesitate referring anyone to his practice.
RrDave Joey &I were very happy with the services we received especially with the frame selection you had available to us. We are all very pleased with our new glasses!!
It was professional but very informative when I had a question.
I liked that I didn't have to wait for an appointment, they got me scheduled right away. When I arrived my appointment was on time, as I qas going to work, I appreciated that! I liked that the proccess of choosing new glasses was not rushed, and I felt she was honest about what looked good. The total price scared me a bit. But after receiving my glasses with all the things that were suggested, I love them. I was afraid of bifocals, but really have adjusted and my eyes don't ache at the end of the day.....THANK YOU! I would definitely suggest you to friends!
Mike was awesome with my son Link, who is five. Link has had glasses since three age of three and no longer needs a specialist. Dr. Bardenwerper, was patient and thorough. He took his time to explain everything so I could understand and made sure Link could understand everything and he wasn't afraid! In the end,I was very confident that Link will see great with his new prescription! He went above and beyond and I would recommend anyone go and see him in the future!
This office has top notch equipment and service. Dr Bardenwerper takes the time to explain every test he does and why, and is not only concerned with eye health but overall health. There is a wide selection of eyewear, and great help to find frames that look great.
Exceptional Service - New Lifetime Customer
I recently visited Advanced Focus Eyecare for a routine eye exam, and after my great experience, I will definitely be a lifetime customer. Dr. Michael Bardenwerper and his staff helped me achieve better vision, as I was wearing contacts and eye glasses that were not corrected for an astigmatism. After my examination was complete, with my new contacts, I was able to see 20/15, which only a fraction of people are able to achieve. I was tested on state of the art equipment, and Dr. Barderwerper went above and beyond by examining and discussing the overall health of my eye, which is something I have never experienced at another eye clinic. I feel extremely confident that he is looking out for my overall eye health, and not in it to sell me a pair of glasses or contacts. I highly recommend going to Advanced Focus for any eye care needs.
Flexible hours and great service
The evening and weekend hours worked well with my work schedule. Service was great. The new eye glasses are excellent. I'd reccomend Advanced Eye Focus to my family and friend .
Great Experience, highly recommend
My experience was so much more than just vision testing and buying glasses...the focus was really monitoring and maximizing health and making life more enjoyable. Dr. Mike took the time to understand my work environment and outdoor lifestyle, and provided vision options that would work best for both work and play. There are a lot of new options in optics of which I wasn't aware. He thoroughly explained the reasoning and results for each test, and answered all my questions. I learned so much more than I knew just going in. New equipment was nice too (no need for dilation or that darn "puff" test!). His assistant Nancy seems to have a talent for picking the most flattering frames right away. I tried a dozen different frames but ended up coming back to her first recommendation. Prices were great, too...got a top brand at a very competitive price.
