Medical Eye Services
Advances in technology and modern medicine have changed once routine eye exams into comprehensive, medical eye care.
In every one of our eye exams, a patient will undergo retinal photography because the detailed images allow our eye doctors to diagnose any sign of a vision-threatening disease.
While many optometry practices will charge extra for a standard retinal photo, we want to ensure each patient receives an adequate eye exam comparable to any practice of ophthalmology.
Through the latest technology, we've caught medical issues that would be missed without any photos, such as Hollenhorst plaque, a serious sign of clotted arteries that has a 45% mortality rate without being caught early.
For patients with pre-diagnosed diseases, we highly recommend adding an OCT scan as well for hi-definition photos of the optic nerve and macula, so we have a clear picture of the entire eye.
We measure the internal eye pressure, test the peripheral visual fields, and examine the optic nerves during each examination.
Macular Degeneration is an eye disease that affects the portion of the eye responsible for processing fine detail and providing sharp central vision.
Cataract surgery is the removal of the natural lens of the eye that has developed an opacification, which is referred to as a cataract.
Dry eye syndrome (DES or dry eye) is a chronic lack of sufficient lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye.

Eye injuries range from the very minor such as getting soap in your eye, to the catastrophic such as chemical exposures.
