Regular eye exams are an invaluable tool in maintaining healthy eyes by detecting and preventing disease in both adults and children. 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 Exams, Refraction for Glasses and Contact Lenses and Glaucoma Pressure Testing.
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 including daily disposables, extended wear soft lenses and gas permeable contact lenses.
For those patients needing glasses or contact lenses, we offer a complete optical department. Since your prescription can be filled at the same place it was written, you will not only save time and travel, you will also have the security of knowing the doctor who wrote the prescription is available to answer questions. Our office is staffed with experienced opticians who specialize in high fashion eyewear and carry an assortment of designer frames.
Glaucoma, the leading cause of blindness and visual impairment in the United States, is an eye disease that can lead to a permanent loss of vision. Glaucoma generally provides no warning signs or symptoms of disease, making testing an important part of a full vision exam.
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
In the United States, diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in people under the age of 65. While it can cause cataracts and glaucoma, diabetes can cause the devastating eye disease known as Diabetic Retinopathy. Diabetic Retinopathy is a complication of diabetes involving abnormal blood vessels which nourish the retina of the eye. As part of our diabetic screening process, we will perform a comprehensive eye exam that includes a visual acuity test, pupil dilation, and careful examination of your retina.
LASIK is one of the most popular, eye surgery choices for treating low-to-high levels of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. While ee don’t do eye surgery, but we offer surgical co-management.
If you suffer from seasonal or chronic dry eye syndrome, then you know how uncomfortable it can be. You also know what it’s like to feel self-conscious about your eyes being bloodshot all the time. What you might not know, however, is some of the science behind dry eye syndrome.
Dry eye syndrome is the result of one of two issues. The first is eyes that don’t produce enough tears to keep up with evaporation. (This, as you might expect, can be easily exacerbated by windy, sunny or otherwise dry conditions.) The other cause of dry eye syndrome is eyes that produce low quality tears that fail to adequately lubricate the eyes. Old age, being female, having rheumatoid arthritis and a history of LASIK eye surgery all make a person more likely to suffer from both of these problems. And while you may focus on the discomforts and aesthetics of dry eyes, there are significant eye health risks that also accompany the condition, including corneal damage. What are your treatment options exactly? First, at-home remedies like avoiding exposure to potential allergens and using over-the-counter eye drops. If this doesn’t work, prescription drops and pills may be necessary. Finally, if these fail, surgery or specially-designed tear duct plugs may be the answer.
Comprehensive eye exams are essential in the diagnosis and treatment of vision problems, injury and disease. Early detection allows for treatment to begin before the child experiences difficulty in school due to poor vision, or before any permanent damage has been done to the eye(s). Exams test visual acuity, eye tracking, and focusing skills, and detect problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, amblyopia, crossed eyes, dyslexia, and color blindness.
Orthokeratology, or "ortho-k," is the use of specially-designed gas permeable contact lenses to flatten the shape of the cornea and thereby reduce or correct mild to moderate amounts of nearsightedness. The lenses are worn during sleep and removed in the morning. Though temporary eyeglasses or soft contacts may be required during the early stages of ortho-k, many people with low to moderate amounts of myopia can see well without glasses or contact lenses during the day after wearing the corneal reshaping lenses at night.
Recent research suggests ortho-k may also reduce the lengthening of the eye itself, indicating that wearing ortho-k lenses during childhood may actually cause a permanent reduction in myopia, even if the lenses are discontinued in adulthood.
