Comprehensive Eye Exams
Regular eye exams are an invaluable tool for maintaining healthy eyes by providing opportunity to detect and prevent disease in both adults and children. Some diseases develop slowly without causing pain or vision loss, so early detection can reduce the risk of further harm and allow for a choice of treatment options. Your exam will include the following procedures: Slit Lamp Examinations, Dilated Eye Exams, Refraction for Glasses and Contact Lenses, and Glaucoma Testing.
Contact Lenses Exam and Fittings
Thanks to the advances in optical technology, almost everyone is a candidate for contact lens use today. This includes patients with keratoconus, corneal transplants, irregular corneas, astigmatism, and those who prefer bifocal or multifocal lenses. We offer a comprehensive array of contact lenses to suit each individual patient's needs, including monthly replacement, daily disposables, gas permeable (RGP), scleral, and many other contact lens designs.
For those patients needing glasses, we offer a complete optical department. Since your prescription can be filled at the same place it was written, you will not only save time and travel, you will also have the security of knowing the doctor who wrote the prescription is available to answer questions. Our office is staffed with experienced opticians who specialize in high fashion eye wear and carry an assortment of designer frames.
Glaucoma Evaluation and Screening
Glaucoma, a leading cause of blindness and visual impairment in the United States, is an eye disease that can lead to a permanent loss of vision. Glaucoma generally provides no warning signs or symptoms of disease, making testing an important part of a full vision exam.
Macular Degeneration Screening
MacuMacular degeneration is a chronic eye disease that can severely impact vision. The most common type is called dry macular degeneration, and the less common wet form is more severe and can be very disabling. Today, through early detection and treatment, eye care professionals are better able to manage this disease
In the United States, diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in people under the age of 65. While it can cause cataracts and glaucoma, diabetes can cause the devastating eye disease known as Diabetic Retinopathy. Diabetic Retinopathy is a complication of diabetes involving abnormal blood vessels which nourish the retina of the eye. As part of our diabetic screening process, we will perform a comprehensive eye exam that includes a visual acuity test, pupil dilation, and careful examination of your retina.
