Regular eye exams are an invaluable tool in maintaining healthy eyes by detecting and preventing disease. Some diseases develop slowly without causing pain or vision loss. Early detection of any problems can reduce the risk of further harm and allow for a choice of treatment options. Part of your exam includes the following procedures: Slit Lamp Examinations, Dilated Eye Exams, Refraction for Glasses and Contact Lenses and Glaucoma Pressure Testing as well as a series of computerized tests to determine the health of your eyes.
Thanks to the advances in optical technology, almost everyone is a candidate for contact lens use. This includes patients with astigmatism and also those who prefer bifocal or multifocal lenses. We offer a comprehensive array of contact lenses to suit each individual patient's needs. We offer daily disposables, extended wear soft lenses and gas permeable contact lenses.
Macular degeneration is a chronic eye disease that can severely impact vision. The most common type is called dry macular degeneration. The less common wet form is more severe and can be very disabling. Today, through early detection and treatment, eye care professionals are better able to manage this disease.
Glaucoma, the leading cause of blindness and visual impairment, is an eye disease that can lead to a permanent loss of vision. We provide all diagnostic and treatment options for glaucoma care. Glaucoma generally provides no warning signs or symptoms of disease, making testing an important part of a full vision exam.
For those patients needing glasses or contact lenses, we offer a complete optical department. We carry a wide selection of luxury eyewear and designer frames.

Taking your child for a comprehensive eye exam at an early age, and then maintaining the recommended eye care schedule as they are growing up, is the very best way that you can ensure your child’s vision development and make certain that they acquire the visual skills they need to fully participate in all of their activities. According to guidelines established by the American Optometric Association a child should receive an eye exam at the ages of 6 months, 3 years, before kindergarten, and then once every two years. However, in the presence of certain risk factors or diagnosed vision issues, more frequent exams may be recommended. Furthermore, children who are wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses should be checked annually.
