Yearly Eye Exams
At Optometry Clinic, PC, we believe that yearly comprehensive eye exams are fundamental in maintaining healthy and efficient vision. We aim to prevent eye disease, therefore, preserving sight. During this exam, we check for your most up to date prescriptions and can have discussions about what specialty lenses may work for your lifestyle. Following the prescription check, we ensure healthy ocular anatomy. We do this through many different images and looking with our own eyes. We will discuss any treatment plans needed for your specific eyes and go over the best timeline for when we should see you back.
Contact Lens Fittings
If you are ever interested in incorporating contact lenses in to your lifestyle, we can help! If you are new to the contact lens world, we begin by training you on how to put on and take off a lens. Once the lens is on, we verify the best vision, fit, and power. We send you home with trial contact lenses in almost any shape, size and power. No need to worry if you have astigmatism, a large prescription, or even if you need bifocals!
Our amazing opticians are here for you when selecting frames! Frame selection can be daunting. We will make sure your frames fit your face shape and will work with your specific glasses prescription. Glasses are more than a medical device; they are like a piece of jewelry for your face! We believe that you should love the way you see AND look. You can stop in any time we are open without an appointment to be fitted for frames.
Frame Adjustments and Repairs
Glasses fall out of adjustment with wearing. We have many tools to make sure they fit and are aligned. This is important because not only will be more cosmetically appealing, but you should be looking through the center of the lens for best vision. We are able to make many repairs in the office, but can also send out the frames for further repair if required.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
The OCT is a non-invasive camera that lets us look at the structure of the layers of the retina and thickness of the optic nerves. We use this testing to detect and monitor conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. A patient’s primary care doctor may also want us to monitor if they are on certain high-risk medications since these can change the quality of vision.
Humphrey Visual Field (HVF)
The HVF is a side vision test that checks on the functioning of a patient’s vision. Different settings allow us to monitor glaucoma, macular degeneration, and even vision loss from strokes and brain tumors. This machine helps us monitor vision loss and changes over time.
Fundus photography takes a picture of the retina, which is the neurosensory tissue in our eyes that translates the optical images we see into electrical impulses that our brains understand. The retina can be photographed directly, as the pupil is both an entrance and exit for the fundus camera’s illumination and imaging light rays. This allows use to document eyes at any point of time to monitor for changes and improvements.
