Eye Examinations
Using state-of-the-art equipment we will do a series of lens tests to determine if you need corrective lenses to improve your vision.  It will be important to know if you are having any problems and how you use your eyes for work, sports, or other pastimes. If you need a correction, not only can we make you see better, in many cases we can enhance your academic, occupational, or recreational performance.

A typical examination at our office MAY include some or all of the following tests:
  • Medical history
  • Measurement of visual acuity
  • Pupil dilation ( evaluate the back part of the eye). Intraocular pressure (Glaucoma)
  • Blood pressure
  • Visual field test
  • Analysis
  • Diagnosis
  • Prescription (lenses or medicine)
  • Prognosis
  • Retinal Photography

After the training sessions, we are available during business hours to answer any questions you may have regarding your contact lenses.


Eye Surgery Co-Management
We provide surgery services under co-management programs with affiliated doctors. You, the patient, benefit from the co-operative and combined efforts of doctors working together on your behalf.

These surgical services include: Cataract surgery , Laser surgery , refractive surgery and strabismic surgery.

We also have working arrangements established with other specialized eye care doctors to manage such things as retinal detachments, retinal tears and hemorrhages.

Insurance Assistance
We work with most of the major insurance companies. However, with so many different companies with each offering a variety of plans it is difficult know all of the allowed fees without contacting them first. Prior to an examination, we recommend that you review your benefits with your company's representative, and have your information ready when visiting us.
