Annual Eye Exam
Regular eye exams are an important tool in eye health for detecting and preventing eye diseases and evaluating the overall health of the patient. Some diseases, such as glaucoma, develop gradually without symptoms or vision loss, so patients may not notice that anything is wrong until significant and irreversible damage as been done. Early detection of eye diseases allows for a better choice of treatment options and a reduced risk of permanent damage.
We Diagnose and Manage Many Eye Diseases and Conditions, Including:
- Diabetic Eye Disease
- Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye)
- Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)
- High Myopia (Near-Sightedness)

In addition to our comprehensive eye examinations, we also provide a wide array of specialty medical services. Sometimes, eye exam results or medical histories indicate that a patient could be at risk for a certain condition or disease.
Dry Eye Treatments
Dry eye is a multifactorial disease of the tears and ocular surface that results in discomfort, visual disturbance, and tear film instability with potential damage to the ocular surface. It is accompanied by changes in the normal tear film and inflammation of the ocular surface. In fact, dry eye disease occurs when your eyes do not produce enough tears or produce poor quality tears. That's why it's essential you get your tears analyzed by your eye doctor. Only an eye doctor can properly diagnose your problem and treat it appropriately.

There are many factors that determine the strain your body feels as you work on a computer or other digital device, including room lighting, distance from the screen, glare on the screen, seating posture, and the angle of your head and/or any existing vision problems you may have. One or all of these may combine to cause an uncomfortable amount of strain on your eyes.
Contact lens examinations differ from comprehensive eye exams as they specifically focus on the front of your eyes, ensuring a precise fit. This precision is crucial not only for your comfort but also for achieving the clearest vision possible. Since your eyes undergo changes over time, it's essential to update the fit and prescription with each new set of lenses. This process involves detailed measurements obtained during our examinations.
Vision is our most valuable sense. 90% of a child’s learning is through their visual system. Early detection can save years of struggling and harmful impact on your child’s ability to learn. We recommend an eye exam when a child appears to have a problem-no matter what age, but all children should have an eye exam at 6 months of age.
