Primary Eye Care

examPRIMARY  EYE  CARE  includes a comprehensive vision and eye health examination.   This examination is designed to detect a wide range of problems affecting vision function, such as blurred vision or eye discomfort.


Evaluations for eye health disorders are also performed. The American Optometric Association recommends that all people should have a periodic, comprehensive eye examination every one to two years depending on ones particular needs.


Here at our office we incorporate computerized technology to assist the evaluation of spectacle prescriptions, peripheral vision, intraocular pressure, and eye health. Computerized examination instruments are used to supplement rather than replace personalized care. Examinations include tests for glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and the ocular effects of many general health disorders such as diabetes and high blood pressure, as well as effects of medications. A dilated pupil examination allows us to provide the best assessment of eye health.  It is recommended for all new patients and on a scheduled basis thereafter.
Examinations are provided by a combination of the doctor and the paraoptometric assistants. We use the latest in computerized instruments to ensure the best result. The examination will vary from patient to patient depending on the health of the individual and his/her visual needs. Typically, it may include;

Medical History
Measurement of visual acuity
Pupil dilation (to evaluate the back part of the eyes)
Intraocular pressure (Glaucoma)
Blood pressure
Visual field testing
Screening tests of visual skills (important for children)
Analysis of ocular health
Prescription (lenses or medicine)
Prognosis and treatment options
