A medical eye exam provides ophthalmologists with the chance to monitor your overall health and visual acuity. As you grow older, or you overwork your eyes, eye exams become ever more important. Children and young adults especially should receive a checkup every year, as their prescriptions might be changing rapidly. With an ophthalmic, medical eye exam, we can make a complete assessment of your eye health, visual acuity, eye pressure, and more.
Our eyeglasses are second to none. We exclusively use Carl Zeiss Foundation lenses in every pair of glasses, from the simplest prescription to the most complex. Every lens is custom fit to your eyes, your frame, and your lifestyle. We pride ourselves in offering only the best frames from independent designers. We're a small business, so we support other small, family-owned eyewear companies. This allows for exceptional quality without the downside of mass produced corporate eyewear. Choose from a wide range of styles, colors, and sizes to find the right fit for you. We’re also available for adjusting glasses and doing minor repairs. If you’re just updating your prescription, then we can perform a comprehensive eye exam that checks over every part of your eyes, optic nerve, and other vital areas.
When you’re thinking of getting contact lenses, we can help. Our highly-trained technicians measure the shape of your eye to find the right lens fit. We’ll also show you how to care for your contacts and extend their lifespan. We are available to train first time wearers and anyone who is curious who would like to step out without glasses.
We provide care and maintenance for anyone who may need or has received cataract surgery. We work with the finest surgeons to find you the best fit for the procedure you need. Your clouded vision can be corrected with this quick and simple procedure. Cataract surgery can return you to clear vision, while removing the foggy haze.
Glaucoma is a serious eye condition that requires vigilant maintenance and treatment. The most effective way to combat glaucoma is early detection. Every exam includes an eye pressure check to help us catch any warning signs before any damage is done. For those diagnosed with glaucoma, we provide routine screenings and treatment. We will be your partner in glaucoma management.
Diabetic Eye Exams
If you have diabetes, it’s important to get a comprehensive dilated eye exam at least once a year. If you do develop diabetic retinopathy, early treatment can stop the damage and prevent blindness. Diabetes can lead to swelling in the macula, which is called diabetic macular edema. Over time, this disease can destroy the sharp vision in this part of the eye, leading to partial vision loss or blindness. Macular edema usually develops in people who already have other signs of diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy is an eye condition that can cause vision loss and blindness in people who have diabetes. It affects blood vessels in the retina (the light-sensitive layer of tissue in the back of your eye). Diabetic retinopathy may not have any symptoms at first — but finding it early can help you take steps to protect your vision.
We provide care and maintenance for macular degeneration. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a common eye disorder. It’s caused by deterioration of the macula, a small area in the center of the retina in the back of the eye. Macular degeneration causes central vision loss. Your central vision is what you see in front of you when you’re looking straight ahead. It’s estimated that 11 million Americans have this disease. It’s the number one cause of vision loss.
The alternative to lifelong glasses or contacts is LASIK®, a surgical procedure that changes the shape of your cornea. A misshaped cornea will bend light incorrectly, and the result is nearsighted or farsighted vision. But changing the shape of your cornea with LASIK® makes your vision crystal-clear. Our ophthalmologist specializes in laser surgery procedures like LASIK®, so you’re in safe hands.
