Our comprehensive eye examinations include a full ocular health evaluation to ensure your eyes are healthy and rule out medical eye conditions and diseases, many of which have no symptoms in their early stages. We will also perform a thorough vision workup to determine a prescription that provides the most optimal and most comfortable vision for you, our patient. Let us help protect your precious sense of sight.
Our eyes are directly connected to the brain, which allows us to see and process the world around us. The eyes are the window to the rest of the body and are a good indicator of overall health and wellness. Doctors are able to view actual arteries and veins inside the eye, looking for signs of uncontrolled blood pressure and uncontrolled blood glucose levels, just to name a few. The same blood that flows through your eyes also flows through the heart, kidneys, liver, and the rest of your body.
One of the most dreaded aspects of a visit to the eye doctor is the "air puff test" sometimes even to the point of keeping patients from coming in for a checkup. The good news is you won't even find that instrument in our office! We simply don't use it! We are proud to use the iCare tonometer to get an accurate measurement of intraocular pressure, with no feeling by the patient.
