See Better. Live Better.
Primary Eye Care
We examine, diagnose, treat, and manage disease of the eye and visual system. Some of these conditions can also be related to systemic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol. We commonly diagnose and treat glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, eye inflammations such as dry eye, as well as many other common eye conditions.
We also work closely with many other sub-specialists in retina, neurology, and cornea. Of course, if during the course of your eye examination signs of diabetes, hypertension or other systemic conditions exist, we will send you back to your family doctor.
Pediatric Vision Care
Vision in the broadest sense, is the global ability of the brain to extract, process and act on information presented to the eye. This complex process can be thought of as three major but related areas: visual acuity, which is largely dependent upon refractive status and eye health; visual efficiency skills, representing eye focusing, teaming, and tracking skills; and visual information processing, representing the ability to recognize and discriminate visual stimuli and to interpret them correctly based upon previous experience.
Every examination, we provide for children, regardless of the child's age, has these thoughts in mind.
At our practice we have the option of using many types and designs of contact lenses for our patients. Most often we use disposable lenses in regular, astigmatism, multifocal (bifocal) corrections as well as daily disposables. Multifocal contact lenses are increasing in popularity due to the aging baby-boomer generation.
We also can fit gas permeable contact lenses. A relatively unknown area of contact lenses is the use of gas permeable lenses worn only at night while you sleep to change the corneal shape, and thus correct nearsightedness. This treatment is knowns as "Corneal Refractive Therapy" and allows people to see clearly during the day without contact lenses. Our doctors are certified to provide this therapy and encourage this for children/teens with rapidly changing nearsigntedness.
Low Vision Services
Low vision is impaired vision that cannot be fully restored by conventional glasses, contact lenses, medical treatment, or surgery.
You can make the most of your remaining vision so that you can live as independently as possible, and have a productive and happy life.
Adjustment to any vision loss is difficult. It takes self-acceptance, determination, support of family and friends, and learning new techniques to fully utilize any remaining vision. The goal of the Low Vision Services is to enhance their ability to use their remaining vision so they can be independent and better able to meet the demands of everyday living.
Eye injuries can occur at any time. Our office is equipped to handle most eye injuries. The primary instrument we use is a biomicroscope, sometimes referred to as a slit lamp. The biomicroscope has a high magnification and is particularly designed to aid us in evaluating the extent of an eye injury. Whether it is a laceration, embedded foreign particle or a burn, the biomicroscope is the primary tool to carefully examination the injury.
A common injury is a metallic foreign body embedded in the cornea. Grinding or drilling in iron or other metals will release particles when they hit the eye they embed themselves in the cornea. If it is iron, it will immediately begin to rust due to the salty consistency of our tears. When the metal particle is removed, there is a remaining rust deposit that has infiltrated the surrounding cornea.
Our optical features the latest advancements in eyewear technology. From digital lenses to non-glare lens surface treatments that protect your eyes from damaging light and help prevent vision reducing glare. We offer value and children eyeglass packages at an attractive price.

Vision Therapy is a type of physical therapy. Like other forms of physical therapy, with vision therapy, optimum results require much more than visual acuity or binocular eye muscle control.
Vision Therapy integrates visual acuity and binocular function plus detailed brain function activities that collectively control thousands of components of our entire bodies coordinated actions. Your visual system is your steering system. Vision Therapy makes it better.
