Services: Primary Eye Care
Primary eye care includes a comprehensive vision and eye health examination. This examination is designed to detect a wide range of problems affecting vision function, from blurred vision to eye pain.
We also perform evaluations for eye health disorders. The American Optometric Association recommends that all people should have a periodic, comprehensive eye examination every one to two years depending on one’s particular eye health and needs. 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 for all new patients, and on a scheduled basis thereafter. It is recommended for all new patients and on a scheduled basis thereafter.
To assist the evaluations for eyeglass prescriptions, peripheral vision, intraocular pressure, and eye health, we incorporate computerized technology. Such instruments are used to supplement, not replace, personalized care.
Optomap Retinal Exam
We now offer the Optomap retinal exam as an integral part of your eye examination. Optomap is a digital scan that provides an in-depth view of the retinal layers where disease can start, and allows our doctors to maintain a permanent record for your medical file that gives comparisons for tracking eye disease.
Our doctors are diligent about diagnosing and treating retinal problems including macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal detachments and the ocular signs of systemic diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure. If left undetected, these conditions can lead to partial loss of vision or blindness and often develop without warning and often with no symptoms.
The Optomap retinal exam is fast, easy, and comfortable. Our doctors highly recommend the Optomap retinal exam for patients of all ages.
