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.
Medical eye care
A medical visit is more complex than a simple routine visit. Any visit other than updating a glasses prescription would be considered medical in nature. These visits will be billed to your medical insurance. We can see an entire array of ocular conditions from a simple red eye, to diabetes, glaucoma, macular degeneration, dry eye, and even headaches.
emergency eye care
These are visits that should be made right away. They range from the common 'pink eye' to a foreign body embedded in the eye. Also, flashes and floaters should be seen right away as they can be the sign of a detachment of the retina.
computer vision syndrome
If you work at the computer long hours at a time and have experienced discomfort, blurry vision, headaches and/or dryness of the eyes, this is all a result of computer vision syndrome. Working longer hours at the computer has caused this to be on the rise. We can perform special tests and put together a special pair of glasses that can be used to relieve all of these symptoms making it comfortable to work at the computer once again.
Dry eye evaluations
Dry eyes are very prevalent. There is an assortment of tests that can be performed to get to the bottom of the discomfort and can be treated to bring relief. Computer vision syndrome is also a big culprit in the discomforts that can be experienced when working long hours at the computer. Let us help get to the bottom of the problem and make things better all around.
Myopia is when the eye is longer than normal causing the rays of light that enter the eye to focus in the middle of the eye leading to a blurry image. Due to the extra up close work in our day to day lives, more children are becoming myopic and it's levels are increasing exponentially. There are a few ways in which Myopia can be slowed down or even halted. These methods work best when the child is young.
