While we routinely help patients achieve and maintain clear vision through glasses or contact lens prescriptions, we also offer a wide range of medical services when your eyes are in distress. Please contact us for an office visit if you have concerns regarding symptomatic eyes.
Comprehensive eye exams can determine the presence of various eye conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, binocular vision problems, accommodative dysfunction, or eye diseases, such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, etc. Regular examinations are important because, in many cases, the onset of eye problems is not ways accompanied by symptoms. Symptoms may not appear until the problem has done irreversible damage. With eye care, prevention is the key to lasting health.
A contact lens fitting and evaluation is required annually to maintain healthy contact lens wear and updated prescription. It allows the doctor to assess your visual needs and expectations or any contraindications to lens wear. It is essential in the determination of appropriate lens power and design as well as external eye health in regard to cornea, tear film, and lid hygiene.
Contact lenses are medical devices and different eyes need different types of contact lenses. Although most patients can wear soft contact lenses to correct refractive conditions (such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia), there are many patients who require custom/specialized contact lenses due to irregular corneas. These contact lenses are more challenging and expertise to fit.
Comprehensive eye examination is important for children in order to not only detect vision problems, but to also detect binocular, focusing, and eye movement problems. According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), "Eighty percent of all learning is performed through vision. Make sure your child has the best possible tools to learn successfully... Early detection and treatment provide the very best opportunity to correct vision problems, so your child can learn to see clearly"
