Routine Eye Exams
Our patients receive a complete comprehensive eye exam using the most current technology available. A complete eye exam finds you the best possible vision correction and a detailed examination of the eyes.
Children’s Eye Exams
It’s recommended by the American Optometric Association for a child’s first eye exam before their first birthday. We use special techniques to make sure your child’s eyes are developing normally and healthily.
We examine your eyes to make sure that you are a good candidate for contact lenses. We then take measurements necessary to properly fit the best contact to your eyes. If you have never worn contact lenses before we will teach you how to use these wonderful devices.
Speciality Contact Lenses
Some people are only able to get the best vision with contact lenses. For these people we offer our specialty contact services. We can create a custom pair of lenses that can provide the best, most comfortable vision possible.
Orthokeratology is a fantastic option for those who are interested in the freedom of being without glasses or contact lenses during the day as well as children who are getting more nearsighted. You will wear a special lens that corrects your vision while you sleep, wake up, and your good to go the rest of the day without glasses!

Scleral Contact Lenses
Scleral contact lenses are large-diameter gas permeable contact lenses specially designed to vault over the cornea and rest on the “white” of the eye (the sclera). Because of this, scleral lenses functionally replace an irregular cornea with a perfectly smooth optical surface to correct vision problems caused by keratoconus, scars, and other conditions. Also, the space between the cornea and the lens acts as a fluid reservoir to provide comfort for people with severe dry eyes who otherwise could not wear contacts.
Vision therapy is similar to physical therapy, but instead of a joint or muscle, it works with the eyes and brain. There is a neurological component with this kind of therapy because the eyes are an extension of the brain. Our eyes help make “seeing” possible, but vision is reliant on the eye-brain connection. If either of these organs are not working properly, vision will be difficult or non-existent.

Why is my personal background important?
In order to better tailor the eye examination to your needs, our doctor may review any current vision problems, your general health, as well as discuss your hobbies and lifestyle requirements.
Why does the doctor ask me, “Which is better: one or two?”
While evaluating your prescription, the doctor will ask you to compare a series of lenses to determine which allows you to see clearer. As the differences become less noticeable, the doctor will be closer to finalizing your prescription. If you’re having a hard time choosing between the options, it means you’re almost done with this part of the exam!
Why is it necessary to know my blood pressure?
In addition to other health concerns, high blood pressure can affect the blood vessels in your eyes, which could lead to future vision problems.
Why am I asked to follow a light with my eyes?
This part of the exam helps determine how your pupils and eye muscles react and assists in gauging neurological function.
Is it necessary for the doctor to dilate my pupils during the exam?
Although pupil dilatation is not always necessary, the doctor may make this decision during your exam. If required, this painless process is like opening a door so the doctor can fully examine your retina. Dilation can assist in detecting diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and macular degeneration.
