Comprehensive Eye Exams
Comprehensive eye examinations should be a regular part of every person’s healthcare routine. They are an important tool in eye health by detecting and preventing eye diseases and evaluating the overall health of the patient. Some diseases, such as glaucoma, develop gradually without symptoms of pain or vision loss, so patients may not notice that anything is wrong until significant and irreversible damage has been done. Early detection of eye diseases allows for a choice of treatment options and a reduced risk of permanent damage. Our practice tests vision and provides prescriptions for eyeglasses and contact lenses when necessary. We use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to evaluate and maintain your overall eye health.
Cataract Evaluation and Surgery
Just because one is diagnosed as having cataracts doesn’t mean that their removal is an immediate necessity. However, if a cataract is keeping you from doing the things you like or need to do, the only treatment for cataracts is surgical intervention. The latest techniques in microsurgery and technology in intra-ocular lens implants have enabled us to restore eyesight in cataract patients easier and more successfully than ever before.
Glaucoma Evaluation and Treatment
Glaucoma is a serious eye disorder where the pressure of the fluid in the eye is so abnormally high that can cause damage or blindness if left untreated. While treatment is often successful with the use of topical eye drops, other options are now available including the use of special lasers and surgery.
