WHY SHOULD I HAVE AN EYE EXAM IF I CAN SEE JUST FINE?
An eye exam is much more than just glasses and contacts, and often times people who can see "just fine" don't realize that they could be seeing even better! Regular ocular health exams are important for detecting any number of potential issues, not just with your eyes but also your overall health. You wouldn't wait until your teeth are falling out to see your dentist would you?
DO YOU FIT CONTACT LENSES?
We fit a variety of contact lenses including monthly, daily disposable, color contacts, astigmatism, multifocal, gas-permeable, and scleral lenses.
I HAVE DIABETES SO DON'T I NEED TO SEE A SPECIALIST?
Diabetic eye exams are an important part of managing your diabetes. Often times your eye care professional can detect potential complications from diabetes during a thorough eye exam and provide vital insight to your primary care doctor or endocrinologist on how well the diabetes is being managed. Except when surgical intervention may be necessary there is no requirement to see a "specialist" for your regular diabetic eye exams.
DO YOU CHECK FOR GLAUCOMA, CATARACTS, MACULAR DEGENERATION, ETC?
Yes. Every eye exam includes not only a check for any necessary vision correction, but also overall health of the eyes. Most ocular diseases can be treated and managed by your optometrist. If possible surgical intervention is needed we will coordinate and co-manage your care with the proper specialist.
I'VE ALWAYS HAD PERFECT VISION BUT NOW MY ARMS ARE TOO SHORT. WHY?
You are most likely suffering from TMB syndrome, also known as "Too Many Birthdays" and it may be time to accept the fact that you either need reading glasses or bifocals. Sorry.
