Trusting your optometrist goes beyond the perfect glasses and great fitting contact lenses. It means trusting them with the health of your eyes and the health of your body. Our experienced optometrists go beyond basic vision screening using the most up-to-date technology to keep your eyes healthy. We can screen of life threatening conditions as well as help to solve your dry eye problem. We’re here to keep you healthy.
A complete eye exam every one to three years is recommended, depending on your age, risk factors, and overall health. For those with certain health conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure, more frequent eye exams are recommended.
Contact Lens Exams
After performing a complete eye care exam, you will receive a contact lens consultation where we discuss your lifestyle and vision needs to determine which type of lenses are best for you. Then we measure you for contacts and give you a prescription.
Cataracts blur vision and are caused by protein that clumps together and clouds the eye’s natural lens, which lies behind the iris and the pupil. We offer both pre-surgery cataract evaluations, as well as post-operative eye care follow-up exams.
Diabetic Retinal Evaluations
If you have diabetes, you are 25 times more likely to lose vision than those who are not diabetic. And the longer someone has diabetes, the more likely they are to suffer from retinopathy, which regular visits to your eye doctor can diagnose.
A buildup of internal eye pressure (intraocular pressure) is associated with glaucoma, which can damage the optic nerve. Early diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma is the key to eye care and to prevent vision loss, though we also offer post-operative glaucoma exams.
Having your vision checked after LASIK surgery is important to ensure your vision has been corrected appropriately and for eye care–to monitor the health of your eyes. We work with your surgeon or doctor and offer post-operative LASIK exams and care in our office.
