Comprehensive Eyes Exams With an Optometrist
An optometrist at Family Eye can perform a comprehensive eye exam. This is more than just checking your vision. Not only will the optometrist check your visual acuity, they will also dilate your eyes. This will give them a better chance to look inside and also to check your eye pressure. This part of the exam can tell your optometrist if you have hypertension, complications due to diabetes, and signs of macular degeneration, glaucoma, and cataracts. Tumors and even multiple sclerosis can also be caught during an eye exam.
Contact Lens Exams & Fittings
If you are tired of wearing glasses and you want to wear contacts, Family Eye Center offers contact lens exams and fittings. During the exam, the optometrist would make sure that you are a good candidate for contacts. They will measure your eye so that your contacts fit correctly and they will go over your contact lens options. As a first time wearer, you will also be taught how to put the contacts in your eyes, how to take them out, and the proper way to care for your contacts
Prescription Eyeglasses & Sunglasses
If you need an eyeglass prescription, an optician will sit down with you to help you choose the right color frame and the right shape that will fit your face the best. If you are thinking about getting prescription sunglasses, an optician can help you with that as well. Family Eye Center has a large selection of frames that are affordable on any budget.
Medical Eye Problems/Eye Infections
If you think that you have an eye infection, an optometrist can examine your eyes and then treat the infection accordingly. If you have a medical eye problem such as cataracts, glaucoma, or diabetic retinopathy, your optometrist will treat you accordingly. They will also follow up on your process to be sure that your condition isn't worsening.
If you are referred to an ophthalmologist for surgery, your eye doctor will work closely with the surgeon while you are under their care. When your surgery is complete, your optometrist will have full knowledge of your condition and the outcome of the surgery. This will help them to take over when your treatment with the ophthalmologist is complete.
