Our Eye Care Services:
Routine eye exams are important, regardless of your age or physical health. During a complete eye exam, your eye doctor will not only determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, but will also check your eyes for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together as a team and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health. The AOA also recommends an annual eye exam for any adult who wears eyeglasses or contacts. If you don't normally need vision correction, you still need an eye exam every year. Doctors often recommend more frequent examinations for adults with diabetes, high blood pressure and other disorders, because many diseases can have an impact on vision and eye health.
Pediatric eye exams. Some experts estimate that approximately 5% to 10% of pre-schoolers and 25% of school-aged children have vision problems. According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), all children should have their eyes examined at 6 months of age, at age 3, and again at the start of school. Children without vision problems or risk factors for eye or vision problems should then continue to have their eyes examined at every year throughout school. The InfantSEE® program offers a one-time, comprehensive eye and vision assessment to babies in their first year of life, usually between the ages of 6 and 12 months, offering early detection of potential eye and vision problems at no cost regardless of income or ability to pay.
Eye Emergencies. We are always willing to help, should you ever experience an eye emergency. Our office provides emergency services for eye infections, eye injuries and other eye urgencies. We accommodate many eye emergencies such as:
- Foreign materials stuck in the eyes
- Eye trauma
- Scratched eyes
- Sudden loss of vision in one or both eyes
- Flashes of light in the vision
- “Floaters” in the vision
- Red or painful eyes
- Uncomfortable, itchy, or irritated eyes
Studies have shown that an overwhelming number of emergency room visits could have been treated by an optometrist. It is not always necessary to go to an emergency room for eye emergencies. Optometrists are equipped to treat the majority of eye emergencies. Please call our office and we will schedule you as soon as possible.
Eye Disease Management. Your eye doctor will also monitor any eye health related issues discovered during your routine exam. We also provide eye health related exams to manage longstanding conditions such as, but not limited to:
- Diabetic retinopathy
- Macular degeneration
- Dry eye syndrome
- Corneal dystrophies
Our state of the art equipment allows us to examine the front surface of the eye and also digitally scan inside the eye to monitor for changes in your eye health and help the doctor determine a treatment plan if you are diagnosed with an eye disease. It is important to have an annual eye exam to continue monitoring your eyes for any health related changes. Your eye doctor may have you return more frequently if you are diagnosed with an eye disease.
