Comprehensive Eye Examinations

EXAM2

Our comprehensive eye examinations evaluate your eyes, both inside and out, for any potential disorders or diseases. Your visual skills and abilities are carefully evaluated and appropriate treatment is prescribed – whether it’s medication, lenses or vision therapy.  Our goal for you is clear, comfortable, and healthy vision.

Technology is rapidly changing the eye care industry. We utilize the latest in diagnostic equipment and are committed to providing our patients the best instrumentation available.

Pediatric Vision & Eye Health Examinations

The American Optometric Association recommends that children should receive their first complete eye exam by age 6 months, or sooner if symptoms are noticed. This is especially critical because 80% of what children learn is through vision.

Our caring staff makes the child’s visit a not-so-scary experience. We use special kid-friendly instruments to gather data on visual health, binocular function, and eye coordination…all of which are critical to learning. We only prescribe glasses when they are truly necessary, and we dispense high quality frames and lenses with kid tough guarantees. Our selection of children’s frames and sunglasses is one of the largest in the area.

We also fit children and teenagers with contact lenses and teach them to handle them safely. Ask about Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) for active teens and adults. Sleep in special contact lenses and be lens and glasses-free during the day!

Optomap Retinal Exam

The Optomap produces a comprehensive image of your retina without the side effects of dilation.  Thus, we can better prevent or reduce vision loss in our patients with a simple, quick and patient-friendly new exam.

Any eye exam should always include a careful look at the retina, which is located at the back of the eye, to screen for abnormalities or disease.  The sensitive tissue that makes up the retina is susceptible to a variety of diseases that can ultimately lead to partial loss of vision or even complete blindness.  Early detection of any retinal abnormality is crucial.  Previously, this could only be done by dilating the pupils, a procedure that many patients found uncomfortable, inconvenient and time-consuming.

The Optomap using a new technology – the Panoramic200TM Retinal Imaging System enables us to see more of your retina than observed during dilated exams without the discomfort and inconvenience associated with pupil dilation.  As a result, you will not experience blurred vision or sensitivity to light following your eye exam.  (Dilation results in thirty minutes of waiting and 3 or more hours of blurred vision).  It is important to note however, that should any abnormalities be detected or if we cannot obtain an acceptable image, dilation may be necessary.

The Optomap exam is simple: at the push of a button, we can generate a computer image of your retina for immediate review.  Experience with this technology has already led to improved disease detection and has possibly prevented vision loss and blindness in several patients.

OCT

The OCT (Optical Coherence Topography) is a non-invasive imaging test allowing the doctor to look at cross-sectional layers of your retina.  The OCT allows the doctor to measure the thickness of each layer, aiding in detecting the early signs of diseases affecting the retina, such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.
