Your vision is important to us. That’s why we recommend annual eye exams to all patients. An eye exam can do so much more than help you see better. It's an essential part of your overall healthcare routine. Eye exams can even help discover serious health conditions like diabetes and brain tumors. Let one of our eye doctors help you on your journey to great health.
- Ophthalmologists are specialists who diagnose and treat serious eye conditions. Reconstructive eye surgery, glaucoma, retinal detachment, macular degeneration, orbital tumors, ocular oncology and cataracts all require the care of an ophthalmologist. Other kinds of needs also fall into this category. If you suffer from blepharospasm, need laser surgery, or experience ongoing eye inflammation, it's a good idea to see an ophthalmologist.
- Optometrists handle more routine cases. If you need a yearly eye exam, a contact lens fitting or a low vision evaluation because you haven't been seeing as well as you once did, one of our optometrists and pediatric optometrists would be happy to help you.
