Regular eye exams are an important tool in eye health for detecting and preventing eye diseases and evaluating the overall health of the patient. Some diseases, such as glaucoma, develop gradually without symptoms or vision loss, so patients may not notice that anything is wrong until significant and irreversible damage has been done. Early detection of eye diseases allows for a better choice of treatment options and a reduced risk of permanent damage.
In addition to our comprehensive eye examinations, we also provide a wide array of specialty medical services. Sometimes, eye exam results or medical histories indicate that a patient could be at risk for a certain condition or disease.
Dry eye is a multifactorial disease of the tears and ocular surface that results in symptoms of discomfort, visual disturbance, and tear film instability with potential damage to the ocular surface. It is accompanied by increased osmolarity of the tear film and inflammation of the ocular surface.
We offer the latest technology in Contact Lens exams to target specific eye problems like dry eyes, astigmatism, difficulty reading, and eye diseases like keratoconus. We are focused on giving you the best comfort and vision, not just adequate comfort and vision. Contacts are constantly being improved for more comfort and better vision.
When detected early, many diseases can be treated without further loss of vision. Each Optomap image is as individual as fingerprints or DNA and can provide us, and you, with a unique view of your health, quickly and comfortably.
A change in vision is often not realized until your child can’t see the board at school or has trouble reading a text book. They often do not know their eyes are not working efficiently and are unable to communicate that a problem exists.
