Primary Eye Care
Primary eye care includes a comprehensive vision and eye health examination. This examination is designed to detect a wide range of problems affecting vision function, such as blurred vision or eye discomfort.
Evaluations for eye health disorders are also performed. The American Optometric Association recommends that all people should have a periodic, comprehensive eye examination every one to two years depending on one's particular needs.
Here at our office we incorporate computerized technology to assist the evaluation of spectacle prescriptions, peripheral vision, intraocular pressure, and eye health.
Computerized examination instruments are used to supplement rather than replace personalized care. Examinations include tests for glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and the ocular effects of many general health disorders such as diabetes and high blood pressure, as well as effects of medications.
Traditionally a dilated pupil examination has allowed us to provide a thorough assessment of the retina. We now have the technology to perform non dilated retinal examination and get a full 200 degree view of the retina using our Daytona Ultra Widefield Optomap. This technology is above and beyond the traditional "Fundus Photography", and it allows our doctors to detect serious eye health issues more effectively and accurately. It is recommended for all new patients to receive a retinal examination and on a scheduled basis thereafter. For detailed information about Optomap device and technology, please click HERE.
