Regular eye exams are an invaluable tool in maintaining healthy eyes by detecting and preventing disease. Some diseases develop slowly without causing pain or vision loss. Early detection of any problems can reduce the risk of further harm and allow for a choice of treatment options. Part of your exam includes the following procedures: Slit lamp examinations, dilated eye examinations, refraction for glasses and contact lenses and glaucoma pressure testing as well as a series of other computerized tests to determine the health of your eyes.
Thanks to the advances in optical technology, almost everyone is a candidate for contact lens use. This includes patients with astigmatism and also those who prefer bifocal or multifocal lenses. We offer a comprehensive array of contact lenses to suit each individual patient's needs. We offer daily disposables, extended wear soft lenses and gas permeable contact lenses. We provide lens services for difficult to fit patients as well.
Patients with diabetes are more likely to develop eye problems including retinopathy, cataracts, glaucoma and double vision. It is essential that diabetics monitor and control their blood sugar levels under the care of their primary care physician. Over time, diabetes can affect the blood circulation to your eye and can cause retinopathy. Diabetics can significantly reduce eye complications with annual eye exams to evaluate and monitor your retinal health.
Glaucoma, the leading cause of blindness and visual impairment, is an eye disease that can lead to a permanent loss of vision. We provide all diagnostic and treatment options for glaucoma care. Glaucoma generally provides no warning signs or symptoms of disease, making testing an important part of a full vision exam.
LASIK is one of the most popular, eye surgery choices for treating low-to-high levels of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.
Adjustment to any vision loss is difficult. It takes self-acceptance, determination, support of family and friends, and learning new techniques to fully utilize any remaining vision. Our goal is to enable people with low vision to improve their ability to use their remaining vision so they can be independent and better able to meet the demands of everyday living.
Macular degeneration is a chronic eye disease that can severely impact vision. The most common type is called dry macular degeneration. 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.
