The American Optometric Association recommends that all people should have a periodic, comprehensive eye examination every one to two years depending on the particular needs of the patient. We will provide an examination that provides an assessment of both your complete eye health and a full assessment of your visual needs.
Here at our office we incorporate the latest technology to assist the evaluation of spectacle prescriptions, peripheral vision, binocular vision function, intraocular pressure, and overall eye health. Computerized examination instruments are used to supplement rather than replace personalized care. Examinations include tests for glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and the ocular effects of many general health disorders such as diabetes and high blood pressure, as well as effects of medications. A dilated pupil examination allows us to provide the best assessment of eye health. It is recommended for all new patients and on a scheduled basis thereafter.

The natural lens in our eyes tends to get cloudy throughout our lives. If this lens gets cloudy enough, it can reduce what we are able to see as we try to look through that cloudiness. Our doctors will assess these lenses during the comprehensive examination. If that cloudy lens is reducing your vision significantly, they will refer you to the most capable surgeons in the area. Our doctors will also provide preoperative and postoperative care throughout the process to ensure the best possible outcome.
Refractive surgery is a procedure that can reduce the need for glasses or contact lenses by reshaping the cornea. LASIK and PRK are the two most common forms of this procedure. Our doctors can determine if you are a
candidate for such a procedure and educate you in more detail on what to expect with such a procedure. They will refer you to the best surgeons in this area and will also provide the preoperative and postoperative care.
