We offer glasses eye examinations, contact lens fittings, diabetic retinal evaluation, retinal photography, glaucoma screenings, cataract screenings, and emergency office visits for red eyes and other visual problems. We also partner with local ophthalmologists and co-manage LASIK and cataract surgeries, and glaucoma to maintain the health of your eyes and to preserve vision for many years.
Our office is equipped with the latest computerized instruments, which makes your eye exam easy, painless, and accurate! We have several different machines that we use during your pre-testing before you see the doctor. We have a computer that measures the length of the eye and the curvature of the cornea, which gives the doctor a great starting point for a new prescription. Our Tonometer, "air-puff," test automatically lines you up and takes the reading all by itself!
We also use a retinal camera that will take digital photographs of the inside of your eyes, along with an Optical Coherence Tomography, or OCT, machine that is a non-invasive imaging test. OCT uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina. During your exam, the doctor will review with you the health of your eyes by looking at the blood vessels, optic nerve, macula and retina which can be seen in the photograph and OCT imaging.
With contact lens technology getting more and more high-tech, we can now fit eyes with astigmatism and eyes that need bifocals. We offer free trial pairs during your contact fitting and routine follow-up care is included with the contact lens exam fee. Our large inventory of trial contact lenses will allow you to leave with a trial pair of contacts the day you come in. If you’re a new wearer we will take the time to teach out how to put your new contacts in and take them out as well as how to care for them on a daily basis.
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. It’s a bit like getting your blood pressure checked and not getting the rest of your annual physical. You’ll have useful information, but it’s not the whole picture.
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.

Seasonal allergies is a medical condition similar to other forms of allergies that occur when the body's immune system reacts to an external material in the environment during seasonal periods when plants and trees are pollinating.

Contact lenses come in a variety of shapes and styles to suit the range of needs for individual patients. What this means is that there is almost certainly a type of contact lens that will both feel comfortable for you and improve your vision.
