EYE Care You Can Trust for Life
Our eyes provide each of us the ability to take in visual world around us–to see and enjoy all the various shades and hues of life. Could you imagine the world without this luxury? At EYEcenter Optometric, we strive to make sure that you can see with absolute brilliance to your eyes’ optimum ability. We seek to serve you with best eye health possible for your ongoing care.
Ongoing Personalized Care
The eyes do change over time and are clear indicators of a variety of health conditions, which creates the need for routine care. Having been in the business of EYE care for over 50 years, we know a thing or two about not just monitoring your eyes, but maintaining your eyes to be the healthiest they can be not just today, but tomorrow and for years to come.
That is our commitment to you.
General Eye Care
Our offices provide a variety of eye care services.
If your last examination was in a store where you bought glasses, a comprehensive eye examination in our office will probably be different experience. First, you will be given forms to fill out so that we may review your medical history.
It is important for us to know the status of your health because many systemic diseases have associated eye problems. Second, it is important for you to tell us about any medications that you use including over the counter medications because many medications effect the eye. It is also important for us to learn something about your life style. We want to prescribe glasses, contact lenses, and therapy on the basis of your visual needs. Remember, each of us are unique.
What Tests Are Performed?
On all patients we measure visual acuity; determine your eye-glass prescription at distance and near; evaluate your eye muscle coordination; assess the front of the eye with a microscope; perform a glaucoma test; and dilate or image the eyes to properly evaluate the retina. Patients often ask do you have to dilate the eyes? To properly assess the retina (the back of the eye), we use to routinely dilate or image everyone’s eyes.
Why Should I Get My Glasses From Your Office?
We pride ourselves in providing the best care. We also pride our-selves in providing the highest quality ophthalmic lenses and the most stylist quality frames. Our passion for excellence begins with a knowledgeable and caring staff. We are constantly in pursuit of the newest and improved products to better serve the needs of our patients. Proper glasses require style, proper fit and design, high quality optics, accurate measurement and fabrication.
Can I Take My Prescription and Get Contact Lenses?
No. An eye-glass prescription though related to a contact lens prescription is entirely different. Contact lenses need to be properly fitted to ensure good vision and health of the cornea. Also, keep in mind contact lens fitting is not covered by most health insurance companies.
I Have 20/20 Doesn’t That Mean My Eyes Are Ok?
No. Just because you have 20/20 it doesn’t mean that you don’t need glasses, eye therapy, or treatment for a silent disease. Only a comprehensive eye examination will determine if your eyes are healthy and working properly.
