Comprehensive Eye exam
A comprehensive eye exam is a lot more than just determining your eyeglasses and contact lens prescription. The refraction is done to determine a patient's prescription, but it is just a minuscule part of an eye exam. Many systemic diseases can be uncovered during a comprehensive eye exam including diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and thyroid disease. We are also able to evaluate the eyes for cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.
contact lens eye exams
A contact lens exam is one step further from a comprehensive eye exam. During a contact lens exam, we take certain measurements of the front surface of the eye and use that in conjunction with the prescription determined to pick the contact lens that will work the best for an individual patient. Contact lenses are medical devices and require extra care in order to maintain the health of the cornea. This is very important in order to continue to safely and successfully wear contact lenses.
We offer a variety of boutique style frames that were carefully chosen to meet all of our patients needs. They each have a specific story behind them and are special in their own way. These are hand-crafted, unique, quality frames that we have grown to love and we are sure that you will love them too.
Orthokeratology (OrthoK) is an alternative to refractive surgery in which lenses (molds) can be fitted and are only worn over night. These molds will alter the curvature of the front part of the eye while you sleep leading to perfect vision during the day. Please ask if OrthoK is right for you.
Specialty Contact Lenses
Medically Necessary contact lenses are often needed for individuals dealing with Keratoconus, severe dry eye, Pellucid Marginal Degeneration, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, or a post surgical cornea. These lenses include rigid gas permeable lens, scleral lenses, or even a hybrid lens. These are custom fit lenses and will address the individual's eye care needs.
