Annual Eye Exams

All annual eye examinations are thorough and comprehensive — nothing about our examinations are routine.

During your appointment, we evaluate your vision, measuring both your distance and your reading vision to determine your need for glasses.

We perform a medical health examination of your eyes. This examination is designed to detect a wide range of problems affecting vision function, such as blurred vision or eye strain. We also conduct screenings for cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, hypertensive and diabetic eye conditions, and other eye disease.

We may ask questions to address your computer vision needs and make recommendations to improve clarity and comfort while working at the computer.

Our exams include a detailed explanation of the current condition of the eyes from both a vision and health perspective. Based on your exam results, we’ll diagnose and discuss any vision issues or eye conditions and review all corrective options available to you.

We also offer laser surgery consultation.

The American Optometric Association recommends that all people should have a periodic, comprehensive eye examination every one to two years depending on ones particular needs.

Contact lens wearers should have their eyes examined every year in order to renew their prescription and to insure that the contact lenses are fitting properly.

Treatment of Eye Disease

We diagnose and treat eye infections, inflammation, corneal abrasions, dry eye, foreign bodies, and glaucoma. If indicated, we are able to prescribe topical and oral antibiotics, topical steroids, dry eye treatments, and glaucoma medications.

For patients with flashes and/or floaters, we will perform a dilated examination to determine if the symptoms are related to benign age-related changes or a more serious condition that requires referral to a retinal specialist.

Pediatric Care

“The American Optometric Association guidelines recommend that all children have a complete vision and eye health examination at the age of 6 months, 3 years, upon entering kindergarten, and routine vision care (every 2 years) thereafter throughout their school years.” (http://www.aoa.org)

The visual system matures rapidly during the first few years and it is important to identify any problems that may interfere with normal vision development.

Although young children may not be able to read an eye chart, we have picture charts for children hesitant with their letters. We also have a computerized instrument that allows us to measure a child’s prescription for an objective assessment independent of the child’s responses.

In a pediatric eye examination, we pay special attention to how the eyes are working as a team. It’s important that both eyes are seeing equally to allow proper development of vision in both eyes.

A comprehensive pediatric eye examination will assess visual clarity, nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, eye health, eye alignment and eye focusing.

Reports have estimated that up to 25% of students in grades K – 6 have vision-related problems, which may contribute to poor school performance. So it’s important to start early to reveal any vision issues that may cause learning difficulties at school. Additionally, if a problem in vision is preventing adequate development of perception and eye-hand coordination skills then early intervention is vital.
