Time for a checkup?
A comprehensive eye exam will evaluate how well you see as well as identify any potential eye diseases. Our doctors are trained and licensed in diagnosing and treating eye diseases, such as pink eye, glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and cataracts. These conditions can result in serious vision loss if not detected and treated early. Often patients with these diseases don’t experience any visual symptoms before vision loss occurs.
Our services include the following:
- Comprehensive Eye Exams
- We encourage our patients to have an eye examination yearly. During the exam we check vision, as well as, look for ocular problems including glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts and other ocular health problems. If left undetected, many of these eye problems can lead to blindness. The exam can also detect systemic problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid problems and ocular side affects of many medications.
- The eye exam is especially important for people at higher risk of eye problems, such as older than 60, family histories of glaucoma, macular degeneration or other sys diseases.
- Contact Lens Fitting and Exams
- We fit all types of contact lenses to improve vision and enhance comfort. Nearsightedness, farsightedness, presbyopia and astigmatism may be corrected with either soft or rigid contact lenses. We offer a wide selection of contacts including disposable, planned replacement, gas permeable, soft toric, soft multifocal, rigid multifocal, rigid bifocal, colored contacts and contacts to correct astigmatism. Many of the newer contacts are more comfortable, more resistant to dryness and healthier than prior contact lenses.
- Children's Eye Exams
- Many childhood vision problems have no symptoms, thus a thorough exam is crucial for detection and treatment. We encourage parents to bring children in for at least one eye exam prior to starting kindergarten. It is especially important if the parents or siblings have a history of eye problems.
- Children are usually unable to tell their parents if the vision in one or both eyes isn't normal Amblyopia may develop if certain visual problems are not treated early in life. The American Optometric Association recommends the first eye exam at 6 months to detect such problems.
- Problems to look for in your child include crossing of the eyes, head tilt, squinting, headaches, eye rubbing, difficulty with near or far activities, shipping lines while reading, loss of place while reading or double vision.
- Primary Eye Care
- Our practices are dedicated to taking care of your eyes. If you should ever notice anything unusual, such as redness, blurred vision, or discomfort, we encourage you to make an appointment. For floaters, flashes, extreme pain or sudden changes in vision, please call our office immediately.
- Lasik Co-Management and Referral
- Lasik is a surgical procedure to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Our doctors co-manage with the best surgeons in the area and can provide answers to any questions you may have.
- Cataract Co-Management
- Cataract surgery is recommended when the natural lens of the eye becomes too cloudy to see clearly. During surgery the cloudy lens is replaced with an implant. There are many types of implants which may be chosen based on the specific needs of each patient. Our doctors diagnose cataracts and co-manage with experienced surgeons.
