Comprehensive eye exams
Obtaining an annual eye exam is essential for assessing one's eye health as well as ensuring that the patient is seeing his or her best at all times. Every patient is different in that we each have unique visual demands in our daily lives; therefore, each exam is catered towards the individual and meeting his or her specific needs.
Whether it is a pair of progressive glasses for seeing the keys of a piano while focusing on the sheet, multifocal contact lenses to play golf with precision, or the perfect set of digital glasses to use on the computer at the office, every effort is taken in providing the corrective solution that is ideal for the individual.
Contact lens exams
Soft Contact Lenses
The contact lens exam consists of choosing the best lens design from a variety of selections and determining an accurate prescription for optimal vision and comfort. Soft contact lenses can accommodate for astigmatism, monovision, and multifocal fits and are available in daily disposables, 2-week, and monthly replacement modalities.
Specialty Contact Lenses
Our office also offers a line of contact lenses for our hard-to-fit patients. The hybrid lens consists of a central gas-permeable (GP) lens material to provide exceptional optics, breathability, and durability, while the outer skirt is made of a soft lens to maintain lasting comfort through the day. These specialty lenses offer a great alternative for patients who are looking for crisp, high-definition vision that cannot be obtained through traditional soft contacts. These include patients who require a high myopic, hyperopic, astigmatic, or complex multifocal correction.
The hybrid lenses are also designed for patients with keratoconus - a progressive disease that leads to the gradual thinning of the corneal surface overtime. Its unique design allows the central hard lens to create a smooth front surface over the irregular cornea and, thereby, enables it to achieve optimal vision as the soft outer skirt ensures long-lasting comfort.
A medical exam includes any issue we may experience that doesn't feel quite so "normal". These symptoms include discomfort, redness, or pain in the eyes that may indicate (but are not limited to) dry eyes, allergies, or a corneal infection. Sudden phenomena such as floaters or flashes in our vision are also reasons for being seen as soon as possible to rule-out potential sight-threatening causes.
Systemic conditions including diabetes, cholesterol, high blood pressure, and various autoimmune disorders may pose risks of ocular complications; therefore, having an annual eye exam is a necessity for co-managing one's overall health.
Our office is equipped with the latest state-of-the-art technology to facilitate in the diagnosis and management of ocular diseases such as glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration. These cutting-edge technologies are valuable tools that serve as a baseline of a patient's ocular health, identify risk factors of a potential emerging disease, and monitoring a condition's progression overtime.
