Services - Eye Exams, Contact Lens Fittings, Emergency Eye Care
Get comprehensive eye care for the entire family.
A comprehensive eye examination is performed to assess your vision as well as your ocular health. Along with prescribing glasses, doctors of Optometry can diagnose, monitor and treat many eye diseases.
Contact Lens Fitting
A contact lens fitting is separate from the eye exam, but is usually performed in the same visit. The vision and the fit of the contact lenses must be acceptable to both the doctor and the patient before a prescription is written. Contact lenses can be worn with almost any prescription: single vision, toric, and multifocals are all available.
Emergency Eye Care
We're available for all those incidental conditions and accidents: corneal abrasion (scratch), foreign bodies, pink eyes, corneal ulcers, etc.
Diabetic Eye Exams
A diabetic eye exam is the same as a comprehensive eye exam, except a patient with diabetes must have their eyes dilated every year (as opposed to every 2-3 years for most non-diabetics). The retina will be evaluated for any signs of retinopathy (hemorrhaging, exudates, neovascularization) and addressed accordingly.
Pediatric Eye Exams
We are best suited to care for children 4 years of age and older. If the child does not know letters, we have a different vision chart made up of pictures. We also have charts with numbers and tumbling E’s, though those are rarely used. Children 3 years of age and younger would be referred to a pediatric optometrist because they are highly trained with examining children.
Visual Field Exams and Assessment
When defects in the peripheral vision are possible due to suspected or confirmed ocular disease (such as glaucoma), a visual field machine can detect small defects that are otherwise not obvious. Visual field testing can also be used to monitor for macular changes when certain medications are being used.
