  3. Adult & Senior eye exams Annual eye exams are recommended for adults and seniors. A comprehensive eye exam not only tests your eyeglass prescription but also tests for a variety of common ocular health conditions and disease. • A friendly staff member will start the exam with computerized automated refraction and eye pressure testing. You will then see the doctor. • The exam will start off with a thorough history of your previous eye exams, medications, and family medical history. The doctor will then check your eyeglass prescription for distance and near/computer vision.
  4. Blephex Treatment Do you frequently experience red irritated eyes, a sandy/gritty feeling and flaky material on your lids and eyelashes? This is likely due to an overgrowth of bacteria on your eyelids. • Symptoms of blepharitis include burning, itching, watery eyes, and crusty eyelids. If left untreated, blepharitis can result in dry eyes, infections, and the formation of styes. • BlephEx™ is a tool that painlessly removes eyelid debris and the bacteria that grow in this debris. It uses a microsponge and medical detergent to gently cleanse your eyelids. BlephEx™ may need to be performed every 6 months to maintain eyelid health.
  5. Children’s eye exams Annual eye exams are recommended for children under the age of 19. Babies are recommended to have their first exam at 6 months. Annual exams are recommended after this. It is especially important that children have their pre-school eye exam at 4 to 5 years of age. • There are several eye conditions that must be evaluated in childhood. Conditions such as strabismus (crossed eyes or eye turns), and amblyopia (lazy eye) must be detected and treated early to ensure proper visual development. • A child’s exam starts with an auto- refraction to measure their prescription. The doctor then tests visual acuity, fine- tunes the prescription, and checks into ocular health.
  6. Dry Eye Testing Do your eyes feel Sandy or gritty? Or do they water for no particular reason? If so you may have dry eye disease. Dry eye disease occurs when your tear quality or quantity is abnormal. We have specialized diagnostic tests, as well as state-of-the-art treatment for dry eye disease. • Dry eye diagnostic testing includes meibography, tear film analysis, and blepharitis assessment. Intense Pulsed light (IPL) has been shown to relieve dry eye symptoms through its thermal action, by melting away thick oil clogging up the meibomian glands. • IPL also helps reduce sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles by boosting the production of skin-firming proteins like collagen and elastin. It also reduces acne, pigment, and vascular lesions.
  7. Computer Related Eye Strain We are all spending more and more time on computers, smart phones, tablets, and other devices. This adds a lot more strain on the visual system. Our eyes are relaxed when looking at a distance, but more stressed when focusing up close. • Being on a computer device for hours a day adds to eye strain and fatigue. Our blink rate also decreases when focusing on our work. Headache and dry eye are a direct result of computer-related eye strain. • The 20-20-20 rule is a good habit for heavy computer users. Every 20 minutes, look 20 feet or further (out a window or into the distance) for a period of 20 seconds. This practice allows our eyes to reset after staring and helps reduce computer-related eye strain.
  8. Laser Vision Correction Laser vision correction is a great solution for those of you frustrated with glasses or contact lenses. Laser surgery corrects those who are near-sighted, far-sighted or who have astigmatism. • There are procedures to correct presbyopia, so one does not need reading glasses. There are several types of vision correction surgeries available, and you may be a good candidate for one procedure, but not so great for another. • Every consultation starts with a comprehensive eye exam, including a detailed history, visual needs questionnaire, measurement of the eyeglass prescription, and an evaluation of ocular health. Through this process, we can determine the most suitable Laser vision correction for you.
