EYE CARE SERVICES
Care By Professionals You Can Trust
For your convenience we have an optometry clinic co-located within our store, focused on comprehensive eye exams, pediatric eye exams, surgical co-management and eye disease treatment & urgent care needs.
COMPREHENSIVE EYE EXAMS
It's recommended to have your eyes checked annually – not only to detect vision changes but also to ensure optimal eye health. Some eye diseases are silent – and if left untreated may lead to permanent vision impairment. We diagnose and manage dry eyes, glaucoma, macular degeneration, retinal problems and many other conditions.
We offer co-management which includes pre- and post-operative care for three main types of eye surgeries: Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK), and cataract surgery. Both PRK and LASIK deal with refraction issues, like myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism, while cataract surgery deals with the clouding of the lens of your eye.
PEDIATRIC EYE EXAMS
Children develop quickly in early childhood and that includes their vision. Early detection of children’s vision problems is essential to make sure they have the visual skills they need to do well in school, sports and other activities. We recommend annual eye exams, starting at age 2 to make sure your child's eyes are functioning properly during their formative years.
EYE DISEASE TREATMENT & URGENT CARE
Common diseases include glaucoma, macular degeneration, while emergencies can include a scratched cornea, eye infection, retinal detachments or a sudden loss of vision. Our optometrists will recommend the most appropriate treatment plan for your needs. They are also TPA certified to prescribe oral and topical medications, and can quickly triage severe issues requiring ophthalmology consultation.
