Our doctors are MDs who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of vision disorders and eye diseases, offering comprehensive medical and surgical care. We have extensive diagnostic capabilities and equipment right here in the office to better serve our patients. These include visual field analysis, fundus photography and optical nerve head evaluation.
comprehensive eye care
Comprehensive eye exam begins with discussion of any visual or eye problems, and a review of your overall health history. Any medications you may take will be discussed, and bringing a medication list with you is very helpful if on more than one.
A complete comprehensive eye exam with dilation usually takes about 90 minutes. The side effects of dilation are light sensitivity and reduced near vision. Although this can be inconvenient for a few hours, it is a small price to pay for good vision and healthy eyes. You only get two eyes, and we would like to help you take good care of them.
Cataract care & treatment
A cataract is a “clouding” of the eye’s natural lens, which results in blurred or defocused vision. Cataracts are typically an age-related condition, but many other factors can play a role in cataract development. If the cataract changes vision so much that it interferes with your daily life, the cataract may need to be removed, and surgery is the only way to remove a cataract. You can decide not to have the cataract removed, but your vision loss from the cataract will continue to get worse.
Glaucoma is a common eye disorder that is, in fact, not one but an entire group of disorders with a common label. It is a disorder that damages the optic nerve, which serves to send the images from the eye to the brain.
It was once believed that glaucoma was caused by high fluid pressure inside the eye (called intraocular pressure). Experts now know that, while high intraocular pressure is a risk factor for glaucoma, it is not the only cause.
