Most people make that a trip to the eye doctor to update their eyewear prescriptions. The fact is, checking your eye health is the most important thing we do during your examination. Think of an annual eye examination as a “physical” for your eyes -- it's an essential part of your yearly healthcare program!

DRY EYE THERAPY
Dry eye syndrome is a chronic and often progressive condition affecting the surface of the eyes. Depending on its cause and severity, it may not be curable. In most cases, dry eyes can be managed successfully, usually resulting in noticeably greater eye comfort, fewer symptoms, and often, improved vision.
Our doctors are experts at diagnosing and treating dry eye syndrome and other ocular surface diseases. By utilizing the latest in technology, we can develop a treatment regimen designed specifically to manage your particular condition and help alleviate your symptoms.
COMPUTER VISION SOLUTIONS
Chances are - you spend more than a couple hours in front of a screen each day. If so, it is likely that you experience symptoms associated with Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). Symptoms can include headaches; tired, stressed, or burning eyes; loss of focus; blurred or double vision; and even shoulder and neck pain.
CVS is caused because your eyes perceive letters and numbers on a computer screen differently than on printed paper. Characters on a computer screen are defined and contrasted by light: they are made of tiny dots called pixels and they are brightest at the center and diminish toward their edges. Make sure you mention any issues at your next visit and we'll provide you with a number of solutions.
Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) is a safe, non-surgical and reversible process that uses specially designed contact lenses to gently reshape the surface of your eye during sleep, thereby providing clear vision during the day without the need for glasses or contacts. The effect is temporary, so lenses must be worn during sleep each night.
Corneal Refractive Therapy is an ideal vision correction method for active children, especially those involved in sports, or children who are genetically prone to having their nearsightedness progress year after year. It is also well suited to many adults whose careers or hobbies are not conducive to wearing glasses or contact lenses. Schedule a complimentary consultation to see if CRT is right for you.
Diabetic retinopathy – the vision threatening damage to the retina of the eye caused by diabetes – is one of the leading causes of blindness in the U.S., yet many cases can be prevented with regular eye exams and appropriate treatment.
Our doctors are experts at identifying and managing potential visual threats caused by diabetes. We utilize the latest in medical technology to ensure you are carefully evaluated for the potential risks for diabetic retinopathy.
Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that cause damage to the optic nerve which carries visual information from the back of the eye to the brain. Early glaucoma usually has no symptoms, therefore, routine eye exams are critical for prevention.
Glaucoma is often associated with higher-than-normal pressure inside the eye, but may also occur when intraocular pressure (IOP) is normal. If left untreated, glaucoma initially causes loss of peripheral vision and can eventually lead to blindness.
Cataracts, or the yellowing of the interocular lens, are common in the aging population and can cause a reduction in vision, especially at night. Glare and halos while driving are often the first symptoms of cataracts. Our doctors diagnose cataracts, make referrals to excellent surgeons, and co-manage post-operative care following surgery.
Macular degeneration occurs when there are changes to the macula, the small portion of the retina located on the inside back layer of the eye. Macular degeneration can result in a loss of central vision and may occur in two-forms.
The most common risk factors for macular degeneration include genetics, a history of smoking, poor diet, a light complexion, excessive sun exposure and most recently, evidence related to the visible blue light emitted from electronic devices such as smart phones, computers, tablets and energy efficient LED light bulbs.
REFRACtive surgery consultation
Want to see without glasses or contact lenses? While laser vision correction (LASIK and PRK) has become the preferred alternative to glasses and contact lenses, there are several other procedures now available, like implantable contact lenses (ICL), intra-ocular lenses (IOL) and corneal inlays. All of these options could completely free you from glasses and contacts! Our doctors are well versed in the co-management of surgical vision correction.
