Good vision is more than just seeing well, it’s also about good ocular health! Our doctors want you to see great today and well into the future. As with many things, detection and prevention is more important than treatment; if an ocular issue isn’t addressed, it can lead to irreversible changes in how you see the world. Because we feel this is so important, we have urgent care spots on our schedule every day to help us best serve you in your time of need as well as have one of our doctors on call afterhours.For those less urgent times, eye care starts with evaluating your visual needs (for things like glasses and contacts) as well as determining how healthy your eyes are. Our comprehensive examination will reveal issues, even hidden ones you may not be aware of. We are committed to providing out patients with the most advanced technology for detecting ocular diseases and tracking changes over time.
Our doctors have a special passion for diabetic eye care, but evaluate all of our patients for many systemic issues that can affect your sight including high blood pressure, heart disease, arthritis, high cholesterol, and thyroid disease. Your overall health has a huge impact on your risk of vision changes later in life and many eye diseases are not obvious to you in the early stages. Many medications can also cause visual issues, especially dryness. Due to the reasons above, our doctors recommend that you have your eye health evaluated on a regular basis (usually annually).
Our doctors diagnose and treat many eye issues including eye injuries and infections, glaucoma, diabetic eye disease, macular degeneration and dry eye just to name a few.
We care about one of your greatest assets — your vision.
