The American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends that your child have a thorough optometric eye examination by the age of 3, to make sure his or her vision is developing properly and there is no evidence of eye disease. This exam will include an evaluation of how the eye muscles are developing in your child or infant. If needed, your doctor of optometry can prescribe treatment, including eyeglasses and/or vision therapy, to correct a vision development problem.
Prior to scheduling laser eye surgery or cataract surgery, you will need to be seen by an optometrist. We can evaluate your vision and eye health and communicate with the ophthalmologist who performs the surgery to ensure he has accurate information. After the surgery, we can conduct follow-up appointments at our office to ensure proper healing, give you a new prescription and answer any questions you may have.
State of the art retinal imaging (taking a picture of the back of your eyes!) and Optical Coherence Tomography (retinal scan of the ten layers in the back of your eyes). This allows our doctors to fully evaluate and manage conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and so much more.
TearCare System is an FDA-approved treatment for patients with dry eye due to Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD). Meibomian glands line the inside of our upper and lower eyelids and produce the oil layer on our tear film.
