We are committed to providing quality eye care to you and your family.
If you’ve had a vision screening recently, you might say, “My vision is fine! I don’t need a comprehensive eye exam.” But a vision screening provides a limited perspective on the overall health of your eyes.
Regular eye exams are important for children since their eyes can change significantly in as little as a year as the muscles and tissue development.
Every patient is different and so are their eyes. This means that there need to be different types of contact lenses to suit each individual.
Many patients come to us every day struggling to get through their daily lives with their current choice of vision correction.
Myopia, more commonly known as nearsightedness, is a condition where individuals are able to see objects that are close to them but may have difficulty distinguishing things at a distance, such as road signs or leaves on a tree.
Understanding dry eye will help you determine the best treatment option. Dry eye occurs when a person doesn't have enough quality tears to lubricate and nourish the eye.
This will help determine the frequency and extent of testing needed. Through a family history and medical questionnaire, the eye doctor is looking for the risk factors.
If you’ve been diagnosed with cataracts, you may wonder if cataract surgery is right around the corner. Not to worry.
Eye emergencies cover a range of incidents and conditions such as; trauma, cuts, scratches, foreign objects in the eye, burns, chemical exposure, photic retinopathy, and blunt injuries to the eye or eyelid.
Low vision is a term for conditions that result in reduced sight and cannot entirely be corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses, medicines or surgery.
The Demodex mite is a type of parasite that lives in humans and can reside in hair follicles and sebaceous glands. These mites are arachnid (eight-legged) and invisible to the naked eye, varying in size from 0.1mm to 0.4 mm long.
When you were a kid, did you experience your eyes become reddish and all of a sudden, someone close to you was also suffering from it?
Macular degeneration, commonly referred to as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), is the single largest cause of sight loss in the developed world and affects more than 10 million Americans.
The parts of a comprehensive eye examination vary according to the patient's age, date of the last exam, and other factors. Not all parts of the eye exam may be needed or performed, but the first part of the eye exam will include documenting medical history.
A refraction test also called a vision test, is usually performed as a part of a routine eye examination. The purpose of this test is to determine if a person has a refractive error which would then mean the patient would need glasses or contact lenses.
Corneal refractive therapy, also known as CRT, is a simple, painless treatment for refractive eye errors like myopia and has two core benefits. First, it can be used to help patients see clearly during the day without using glasses or contact lenses, giving them the freedom and flexibility that they need to live life to the fullest.
Every patient is different and so are their eyes. This means that there need to be different types of contact lenses to suit each individual. Some patients have corneal abnormalities which mean that conventional lenses won’t sit comfortably on the surface of their eyes, while others suffer from eye conditions that mean normal contact lenses won’t be comfortable or could irritate their eyes.
