We offer complete eye care for vision and ocular health.
Children’s eye exams: children can have eye exams at any age (even small babies) when there’s a concern, eg: crossed eyes, white pupil, eye infection/inflammation. We start to care about kids’ refractive status from 3yrs old, which means they should be checked if / how much they have farsightedness/ astigmatism/ nearsightedness at 3yrs age. If there’s a risk of developing lazy eye, we better catch it before 6yrs old (the earlier the better) and initiate the treatment. For school age children, eye exams can make sure they have good vision for school and prevent learning difficulty.
Adults’ eye exams: adults need good and comfortable vision for driving and working. Routine eye exams will help them to see clearly and comfortably. A lot of age related eye diseases may start at this age, like cataract, glaucoma, macular degeneration…… Early diagnosis is critical for preventing blindness.
Seniors’ eye exams: The risk of eye diseases is higher in this age group. The very blinding eye diseases like glaucoma, macular degeneration may not show any symptoms at early and middle stages. The only symptom people may experience is very poor vision at the end stage of the disease. At the end stage, vision defect may be so severe that it significantly affects people’s daily living, like walking, watching TV, cooking, driving…. And treatment is less effectively and helpful at this stage too. So again, routine eye check up, early catching up the signs of the diseases is the key of preventing blindness, and enable people to live independently and enjoy their lives.
Diabetic patients’ eye exams: Diabetes mellitus (DM) type 1/2 may affect blood vessels in the light-sensitive tissue called the retina that lines the back of the eye. It is the most common cause of vision loss among people with diabetes and the leading cause of vision impairment and blindness among working-age adults. Risk increases the longer a person has diabetes. Between 40 and 45 percent of Americans diagnosed with diabetes have some stage of diabetic retinopathy, although only about half are aware of it. Routine dilated eye exams allow the doctor to check the retina for: changes to blood vessels; leaking blood vessels or warning signs of leaky blood vessels; swelling of the macula….
Ocular emergencies: red and sore eyes; foreign body gets into the eye; sudden onset/increase of floaters and/or flashes; sudden vision decrease or distortion; sudden onset double vision. Any of those, you can call our office for care in a timely way.
Laser refractive surgery pre/post exams: Getting rid of nearsightedness/ presbyopia by laser surgery is safe and effective now. The most important thing is to have accurate measurement before the surgery and thorough follow up exams. Also, you need to know which type of laser surgery suit your life style the best. A professional consultation will help you.
Orthokeratology treatment/ OK lenses fitting: This is a revolutionary non-surgical procedure that eliminates the need for glasses or daytime contact lenses. It improves vision by gently reshaping your eye WHILE YOU SLEEP using specially designed therapeutic contact lenses. You just put the specially fitted lenses in at bedtime, and when you awake, you will have clear, sharp, natural vision for your waking hours. Ortho-k is fantastic for children. Numerous studies on myopia (short-sightedness) and ortho-k have indicated that these lenses can dramatically slow, even stop, the progression of short-sightedness in children. Our office is equipped with the most advanced cornea topography, which will help the fitting to be comfortable and accurate.
