Thorough Eye Examinations: Our philosophy is that your glasses or contact lens prescription is just one step on the ladder to proper eye care. A thorough eye exam is necessary to assess and preserve your overall eye health.
Prescription Eye Glasses: From functional to fashionable, eyeglasses are the engine that allows your world to be in focus. Our office has adopted a high standard in quality for your glasses, using only the best frames and superior lenses.
Contact Lenses: The ability to wear contact lenses can give you freedom from glasses. We are trained to fit conventional lenses, as well as astigmatic, multifocal and other specialty contact lenses.
LASIK Consultations: We provide pre-operative through post-operative care for our LASIK patients. Our expert doctors will walk you through the process, starting with your initial questions and ending up with you being free from glasses or contacts.
Diagnosis and Treatment of Eye Diseases: Our Optometrists are qualified and trained to treat and manage most medical eye conditions. Some common eye conditions:
• Amblyopia: Commonly called "lazy eye," amblyopia can be treated successfully if detected early enough in childhood.

• Blepharitis: Red, swollen eyelids and crusty debris at the base of your eyelashes are signs you may have blepharitis.
• Cataracts: Cataracts are a common cause of vision loss after age 55. Surgical correction is safe and effective, and offers several new options for better vision.
• CMV Retinitis: AIDS or other diseases that affect your immune system can increase your risk of serious eye problems from cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection.
• Cornea Transplant: People with serious vision problems from an eye injury or disease affecting the front surface of the eye can often regain vision with a cornea transplant.

• Dry Eye Syndrome: A common condition, especially in women over age 40. Many treatment options are available.
• Eye Allergies: Are you bothered by red, itchy eyes? You may have allergies.
• Floaters and Spots: "Floaters" are usually normal and harmless. But if you notice a sudden increase in floaters or floaters accompanied by flashes of light, see your eye doctor immediately.
