Eye Health and Wellness

While the patient’s primary interface with an Optometrist is getting the patient as close to 20/20 as possible, the scope of an eye exam goes well beyond this goal as the eyes provide a window to much more information about a patients’ eye AND body health.  Your eye doctor’s primary mission is to find the prescription that helps you to see your best, but we do a full assessment of the health of your eyes. This includes an external evaluation of the eyelids, eyelashes, tear film, conjunctiva, and cornea. Your eye pressure is checked to screen for glaucoma. We also perform regular dilated exams to evaluate the health of the optic nerve, macula, and retina. Several complications and eye diseases have no obvious symptoms or signs, so a dilated exam will helps us check for these problems which are hidden below the surface. Periodic dilated exams all your doctor to intervene as early as possible in the event that a problem is found.

Annual Diabetic Eye Exams

If you have been diagnosed with diabetes or borderline diabetes, it is important that you have an annual dilated eye exam. Diabetes affects the small blood vessels in the back of the eye that provide nutrients to the retina. High blood sugar can make these blood vessels become fragile and leak fluids. If left unchecked, these leaked fluids can ultimately lead to vision loss or blindness. In the early stages, these events may not cause any symptoms. An annual dilated exam allows us to monitor these blood vessels and intervene at the earliest possible time in the event that diabetic retinopathy occurs. We will also communicate our findings to your primary care doctor, so that you and your primary doctor can make adjustments to your treatment to gain better blood sugar control.

Refraction for Eyeglass Prescriptions

Having the correct glasses prescription can have a great impact on the quality of your life. We will strive to provide you with the best correction possible. This includes recommendations for lens treatments that will complement your occupation, hobbies, and lifestyle.

Infant and Pediatric Eye Exams

We recommend that babies should have their first eye exam between 6 to 12 months, even if there are no apparent problems. We can assess any excessive amounts of nearsightedness, farsightedness, uneven prescriptions between the two eyes, eye movement and alignment, and the health of your baby’s eyes. Eye and vision problems are not common at this young age, however, it is easier to correct problems if they are detected early.

Senior Eye Exams and Pre/post Surgical Care

Our eyes continue to change throughout our life stages. Annual visits to the eye doctor are equally important to ensure that our mature family members maintain a good quality of life. Your optometrist can also help provide a familiar face by co-managing the patient’s pre and post-op care when going through cataract surgery.
