- Comprehensive Eye Exams
Learn more about what problems can be spotted with an eye exam, what’s involved in a comprehensive exam, and special considerations for kids and contacts.
- Vision Therapy
Vision therapy can correct vision problems that interfere with efficient reading among schoolchildren. It also can help reduce eye strain and other symptoms of computer vision syndrome experienced by many children and adults.
- Orthokeratology or Ortho-K
Orthokeratology, or "ortho-k," is the process of reshaping the eye with specially-designed rigid gas permeable contact lenses. The goal of ortho-k is to flatten the front surface of the eye and thereby correct mild to moderate amounts of nearsightedness and astigmatism.
- OPTOS Retinal Exam
Annual eye exams are vital to maintaining your vision and overall health. We offer the optomap® Retinal Exam as an important part of our eye exams.
- Sensorimotor Evaluations
Within the course of a comprehensive eye exam, your optometrist may detect anomolies in your overall visual performace: an inability to accommodate (or focus), track, or cordinate your eyes as well as expected. In these situations, further testing may be prescribed to fully assess your performance as compared to age-appropriate norms and to therefore decide if you will benefit from Vision Therapy or simply specialized spectacle lenses.
- Pediatric Eye Exams
Early identification of a child's vision problem is crucial.
- Red, Pink or Sore Eyes?
Did you know your optometrist can help you with red eyes, pink eye, or sore eyes? You don't have to go to your primary care physician for help with these issues.
- Management of Ocular Diseases
Including Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, and Cataracts.
- Corneal Mapping
A non-invasive medical imaging technique for mapping the surface curvature of the cornea, the outer structure of the eye.
- Digital Retinal Imaging
Used to detect diseases such as diabetes and macular degeneration, it is critical to confirming the health of the retina, optic nerve and other retinal structures.
This service offers early detection of potential eye and vision problems at no cost regardless of income or ability to pay. It is a one-time, comprehensive eye and vision assessment for babies, usually conducted between the ages of 6 and 12 months.

Eye injuries range from the very minor such as getting soap in your eye, to something more serious like a laceration. We treat a wide variety of eye emergencies regularly.
- Sports and Specialty Eyewear Fitting
Sports eyewear can give you the performance edge you're seeking for just about any sport (tennis, racquetball, etc.) or recreational activity (hunting, fishing, etc.). It can also provide the safety and eye protection you need as well.
- Visual Field Testing
Measures the quality of your side vision (peripheral vision). Usually involves covering one eye and focusing the other on a fixed point in front of you, while describing what you can see on the “periphery” of your vision.
- Glaucoma Testing
Glaucoma testing involves measuring internal eye pressure and a detailed scan of the retina for signs of disease.
- Cataract Surgery
Cataract surgery removes the natural lens of the eye that has become opaque, and replaces it with a synthetic lens.
- Macular Degeneration Treatment
Macular degeneration is an eye disease that affects the portion of the eye responsible for processing fine detail and providing sharp central vision (called the macula).
- Foreign Body Removal
From the occasional eyelash that gets in your eye to a piece of grit or even a metal shard, you may find yourself with something in your eye.
