We are committed to providing quality eye care for you and your family.
Routine eye exams are a vital aspect of preventive eye care. Without routine eye exams, eye and vision issues often go undetected, since most eye disorders have no clear symptoms. The early diagnosis and treatment of vision abnormalities can prevent vision loss and improve overall well-being.
Patients who wear or would like to wear contacts need to undergo a contact lens exam in addition to their comprehensive eye exam. The first contact lens test will measure the eye’s surface to determine what size and type of contacts are best for the patient. Our optometrist might also do a tear film assessment to ensure the patient has adequate tears to comfortably wear contacts.
While dry eye isn’t a serious condition, it can have a major impact on your quality of life. You may find your eyes get tired faster or you have difficulty reading. Not to mention the discomfort of a burning sensation or blurry vision. Let’s take a look at dry eye treatments – from simple self-care to innovative prescriptions and therapies – to help you see clearly and comfortably.
If you have any questions or concerns about ocular diseases, we highly recommend that you speak with our optometrist who will be happy to assist you.
Optical Coherence Tomography uses light waves to take cross-section images of your retina, which is the area of light-sensitive cells at the back of your eye that is responsible for receiving light and transmitting it into messages that are sent up to the brain. The technology behind OCT enables your eye doctor to see each of the different layers that make up the retina.
Optometrists often offer emergency services for patients requiring immediate or urgent eye care. If a patient’s eye is injured, he or she should visit an eye doctor immediately to minimize the risk of losing his or her vision. Some symptoms of common eye emergencies include sudden loss of vision, double vision, reddness or pain in the eye, pink eye, the onset of flashes and floaters, or a foreign body in the eye, especially metals or chemicals.
