Eye Health Evaluation
At Advanced Family Eyecare, we want to preserve healthy vision for years to come so although one may not need visual correction in the form of glasses or contact lenses, it is very important that the health of the eye be checked. By looking within the eye, doctors can tell a vast amount about overall body health.
Vision Corrections Options
In the form of glasses, contact lenses, sport specs, office/computer lenses and sunglasses
Such as red eye, foreign body removal, flashes and floaters, contact lens infections
Diabetic Eye Exams
Diabetes can affect all parts of the body, including the eyes. Because of the eye’s detailed vasculature it is an area of high concern for problems. Also, the ability to see inside the eye and its vasculature allows eye doctors to get a detailed assessment of how a diabetic’s overall health is and report that information to their regular doctor for further regulation of their diabetic care.
Pediatric Eye Exams
Eye exams for children are extremely important, because 5 to 10 percent of preschoolers and 25 percent of school-aged children have vision problems.* A child’s vision includes more than seeing 20/20. Children need basic skills related to good eyesight for learning including: near vision, distance vision, binocular coordination, eye movement skills, focusing ability, hand eye coordination and peripheral awareness. More information about pediatric eye exam recommendations can be found at www.allaboutvision.com
*Vision impairment occurs in 5 to 10 percent of all pre-school age children, according to the May 2004 issue of Annals of Family Medicine; The American Optometric Association (AOA) says 25 percent of all school-age children have vision problems.
Optomap Digital Retinal Imaging
The Optomap offers patients an alternative to dilation utilizing an ultra-wide digital camera that takes photos of the retina. Within minutes the painless procedure can be performed and shared with the doctor. This valuable tool allows our doctors to educate you about your health and wellness, interactively review and discuss the results of your retinal exam, and track signs of retinal abnormalities or disease.
