Did you know if you have diabetes, it is very important to have your eyes checked? Even if you have great control, a lot of times early signs of a problem show up in your eyes first. Our doctors can diagnose and use our technology to make sure you are on track to keeping your vision as best as possible.
Glaucoma is a fairly common eye disease that a lot of people wouldn't know they have until it's too late. With an exam, this can be detected early, treated, and prevent further vision loss. Some might know of the visual field test, or "clicker- test", although it is tedious, it gives our doctors wonderful information of how your vision appears to you! Other testing for glaucoma includes photos and an OCT, all of these combined let us take care of your vision to the greatest detail.
There are a lot of options in treating dry eye because there are many different types of dry eye. It's not just random drops you find at the store. We take the time to discuss what's going to work best for your type and treat underlying issues if they are present.

Examples include: corneal ulcers, infections, foreign bodies, abrasions, who knew such a small part of your body could be so complicated?!
The littles are always welcome at our office. A common question moms ask me is "when should I get my child's eyes checked?" Typically a health check is anytime from ages 6-12 months then another check at 3 years old. Even though they are little and may not want to cooperate, it's okay, I can at least make sure their eyes are healthy and equal to develop normally. The brain and vision work together, the vision is usually fully developed by age 8, if the eyes are not equal or have a congenital defect, then the vision can not develop normally. It's' important to find any of these concerns and earlier is better. We do offer pediatric glasses at our west side clinic as well, if your child would need glasses.
There are so many options these days for contacts! We are able to prescribe a variety based off of lifestyle and needs of each person. You can wear contacts if you have astigmatism or need reading glasses, contacts have come a long ways over the past few years and we like to stay up to date on what's available. New products are always coming out as well and it's always a good idea to ask what the options are if you haven't found the right type yet.
