Services

We provide a wide array of eye care services.  Whether you are bringing in your child for their first exam, noticed that your arms are not longer long enough to read or we are monitoring your glaucoma our office strives to provide the highest level of care.

 

Comprehensive exam

Each exam starts off with a Lifestyle Questionnaire that you fill out before you see the doctor.  This lets the doctor personalize your eye care needs.  Maybe you have a special hobby that needs a certain prescription.  Maybe you are having issues with glare or sunlight.  We also want to know what you don’t like about your current glasses so we can correct those problems.  It is all about helping you achieve the best vision possible and keeping your eyes comfortable.

 

We also want to know about any health issues you might have because certain ones, such as high blood pressure and diabetes, can impact your eye health and vision.  It is also important that we know any medications you might be taking because often medications effect vision and eye health.

 

Our patients range from infants to adults and we personalize each exam for every patient we see.  Some of the tests that might be done include a screening visual field, wave front auto refraction, keratometry, endothelial specular microscope screening, glaucoma pressure check, dry eye evaluation, binocular vision and accommodation testing, refraction and an ocular health evaluation.

An amazing view of a healthy retina
No exam is complete without the Optomap.  While this is an out of pocket expense, it gives the doctor so much information about the health of your eyes.  The Optomap is a picture of your retina that stays with your exam record so it can be compared to future Optomap pictures to monitor for any health changes in your eyes.  This high tech instrument was featured on both Dr. Oz and The Doctors.

Contact Lens Evaluations and Fitting

Often this is done during a comprehensive eye exam, but does not have to be.  There are so many different types of contacts and options available today.  During the course of a contact lens fitting the doctor will determine the best type of contact lens for your eyes; whether they are spherical, toric/astigmatism, multifocal, RGP/hard lenses, keratoconic, CRT, hybrid or any number of custom fitted contacts.  Our office also uses the latest technology for the fitting of contacts and evaluation of corneal health.  We also keep our patients up to date on the latest advancements in contact lenses so we can provide our patients with maximum comfort and ocular health.

Children’s Eye Exams

We always get this question, when should my children have their first eye exam?

 

The answer that shocks most people is 6 month to 12 months.  We participate in a wonder program called InfantSee which provides FREE eye exams to children between 6 months and 12 months.  Since many eye problems arise from conditions that can be identified by an eye doctor in the infant's first year of life, a parent can give an infant a great gift by make sure they take advantage of this program.

 

One in every 10 children is at risk from undiagnosed eye and vision problems, yet only 13 percent of mothers with children younger than 2 years of age said they had taken their babies to see an vision care professional for a regular check-up or well-care visit. Moreover, many children at risk for eye and vision problems are not being identified at an early age, when many of those problems might be prevented or more easily corrected. Some 4.02 million children were born in 2004, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. In approximately 4 percent, strabismus (lazy eye) will develop, and amblyopia (loss of best correct visual acuity) will develop in 3 percent.  This equates to as many as 100,000 infants born each year who are at risk for serious eye and vision problems.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Ocular Disease

Routine eye exams are very important for early detection of ocular disease.  Sometimes ocular diseases present with very noticeable symptoms but other times there are very few symptoms until the disease has progressed.  This is why it so important for yearly eye exams because early detection is so critical.  Often times once ocular disease is detected, yearly eye exams are not frequent enough to monitor for progression. During these follow up visits some of the latest and most advanced technology in eye care will be used to monitor the condition.  The results of any test are always reviewed and explained by the doctor to the patient.  We believe in educating our patients so they can also be involved in the treatment process.  This means answering any questions during the exam or even after days to weeks after.  The doctor will always present the different treatment options available and a treatment plan will be developed between the doctor and the patient.


Eye Trauma/Emergencies

If anything happens to our patient’s eye we want to know right away and most of the time will work them in that day if needed.  Even if it’s the weekend or late in the evening the doctor can be reach and is always willing see any patient.  Early treatment and care is key in these instances and we realize that so there is always a way to get hold of the doctor.  Please do not hesitant to call if you have an emergency.
