Periodic eye and vision examinations are an important part of preventive health care. Many eye and vision problems have no obvious signs or symptoms. As a result, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. Early diagnosis and treatment of eye and vision problems are important for maintaining good vision and eye health, and when possible, preventing vision loss. We provide comprehensive eye care to patients of all ages. We are fully trained and experienced to diagnose, treat and prevent conditions from myopia and hyperopia to glaucoma, cataracts and everything in between. We strive to provide our patients with safe, minimally invasive treatments to effectively relieve symptoms and preserve vision and overall eye health. 

As a comprehensive ophthalmology practice, our services include not only laser vision correction and small-incision Cataract Refractive Surgery but also treatments for a range of conditions such as glaucoma, the diabetic eye, dry eye and macular degeneration.

 

 

Common Eye Conditions

Within our comprehensive practice, we treat vision conditions such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism through visual aids and surgical procedures if desired, as well as conditions affecting the cornea, iris, lens, vitreous, retina, eyelid and surrounding areas. 

Some of the most common eye conditions include:

·         Cataracts

·         Glaucoma

·         Diabetic Retinopathy

·         Macular Degeneration

·         Dry Eyes

·         Blepharitis

·         Flashing Lights and Floaters

·         Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye)

·         Ocular Trauma

 
Surgical Treatment

Certain advanced eye conditions may require surgery in order to restore or maintain vision and prevent serious complications. Surgery for cataracts, glaucoma, corneal disease and other serious conditions are an effective means of correcting these diseases and returning the eyes to a more optimal state of health. We perform surgery only when needed after more conservative treatment such as medications, eye drops and laser procedures have failed.

 We also perform laser vision correction procedures to improve vision and eliminate or reduce the dependence on contact lenses and glasses. To learn more about the comprehensive eye care services provided at our practice, Please call us today to schedule an appointment.

 Regular Eye Exam

Regular eye exams are an invaluable tool in maintaining your eyes' health by detecting and preventing disease. Some diseases develop slowly without causing pain or vision loss. Early detection of any problems can reduce the risk of further harm and allow for a choice of treatment options. We regularly screen for diseases such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy, which can develop without any noticeable symptoms.

 

Patients should see their doctor for a comprehensive eye exam every one to three years, depending on their age, risk of disease 
Glasses
More than 150 million people in the United States wear eyeglasses. Eyeglasses improve vision by adjusting the way the eyes bend and focus light. Ideally, light rays are refracted (bent) as they pass through the cornea so that they focus on the retina in the back of the eye. In a healthy eye, this means that objects can be seen clearly. However, many people’s corneas have a shallow or steep curvature which causes light rays to focus in front of or behind the retina. Objects may then appear blurry at certain distances or at all distances. Glasses can correct these refractive errors.

Prescriptions are measured for each eye so patients can enjoy optimal vision clarity, usually 20/20. Eyewear may be used for certain activities, such as reading for farsighted (hyperopic) patients and driving or watching television for nearsighted (myopic) patients, or may be worn at all times. Eyewear may be used for certain activities, such as reading for farsighted (hyperopic) patients and driving or watching television for nearsighted (myopic) patients, or may be worn at all times.

Regular eye exams test for the development and progression of refractive errors and help your doctor provide a proper prescription if eyeglasses are needed. Exams are also an invaluable tool in the early detection of eye disease.
