The Medical & Surgical EyeCenter offers comprehensive eye exams to meet the needs of all of our patients. Whether you have difficulty seeing in a distance, up close or both, our doctors will thoroughly exam your eyes to ensure your ocular health. If glasses are prescribed, please be assured that a vast selection of eyewear is available through the EyeCenter Optical. Any patients who are interested in wearing contacts will be delighted to know that we carry most major brands of contact lenses.
Many times individuals schedule appointments, complaining of poor vision, thinking that they are in need of new prescription eyewear. In most instances, they are correct; however, there are times when these symptoms are caused by other more serious conditions. You can be assured that our doctors will determine the cause of your visual problem and offer the appropriate treatment and care. For example, Glaucoma can cause vision loss if left untreated. Cataracts affect a patient’s ability to see well.
Patients are also examined for trauma and diseases of the eye that require proper treatment to ensure that no permanent damage is sustained. Injury to the eye may cause problems with the retina. Allergies and infections can develop into more complicated problems if left untreated.
After a thorough examination by one of our doctors, you can be assured of your total ocular health.
Treatment for Vision Problems
Treatment for vision problems can be divided into two categories:
Non-surgical and Surgical.
Non-surgical treatments such as glasses, contacts or medication are more commonly used by most individuals; however, with today’s latest technologies many of these visual problems can now be treated surgically as well.
- Myopia (nearsightedness)
- Hyperopia (farsightedness)
