Comprehensive Eye Examinations
A comprehensive eye exam includes a prescription for eye glasses and a thorough evaluation of the health of your eyes. All of the data and images from your exam are archived in our electronic health record system, allowing the doctor to compare findings over time and identify any changes that may occur. With preventative healthcare in mind, we recommend an annual eye examination (similar to a yearly physical with your primary care physician). This is especially important for children and those over the age of 50, due to their developing and changing visual systems and the increased risk for ocular disease, respectively.
Contact Lens Examinations
Our doctor’s goal is to fit and evaluate each patient and match them to a contact lens that meets their individual needs, without sacrificing vision or the health of your eyes. There are many different options of contacts available, and we have experience fitting dailies, monthlies, gas permeable, and hybrid lenses in both single vision and multifocal prescriptions.
We offer a wide selection of designer frames and styles for every age group, as well as a variety of lenses and extras in all price ranges and packages. Some options we offer includes anti-reflective and anti-scratch coatings, blue light filters, and transition lenses. Our opticians are ready and able to assist you in frame selection and lens options to ensure optimal visual quality and performance. Our office also offers specialty frames and lenses such as safety, sports goggles, and over the counter readers.
Medical and Emergency Visits
As a board certified optometrist, our doctor is capable of diagnosing and treating many eye conditions. This ranges from eye infections and injuries to the detection and management of glaucoma and macular degeneration. Co-management with specialists and primary care providers allows us to ensure you are receiving the best care possible.
If you experience loss of vision, double vision, swelling, infection or notice a sudden onset of floaters and flashes of light in your peripheral vision, please contact us immediately for guidance. In most cases, emergency visits can be accommodated into the schedule the same day.
Pediatric Eye Examinations
According to the American Optometric Association, at least 25% of school age children have some level of visual impairment that is undiagnosed. If left uncorrected, the child’s ability to participate in sports, learn in school, and observe the world around them may be significantly impaired and they can easily fall behind their classmates. Even though most schools offer a routine “vision screening,” many times the vision issues are missed because the child memorizes the chart or is able to compensate for poor vision in one eye by focusing harder with the other. It is recommended that children should receive a comprehensive eye examination between the ages of 3-5 and then an annual exam every year thereafter, in order to diagnose any condition that may have long term effects.
Specialty Testing Equipment
Visual fields: This instrument uses lights with varying degrees of brightness to identify and track vision loss. It is very useful in indicating and monitoring the presence of glaucoma or other neurological disorders.
OptoMap Retinal Imaging: This non-invasive procedure is elective, with a copay of $35, and can be diagnostic replacement for dilation in some cases. If you are unable to be dilated at the time of your exam, this is a great option. The OptoMap allows the doctor to see a much more extensive view of the retina than as seen through an undilated pupil with conventional methods. The image then becomes a part of your medical file, allowing the doctor to detect early changes that may lead to potentially vision-threatening conditions.
