Your eyes give us insight into your general health. Therefore, we provide comprehensive eye examinations for all of our patients. That means we determine your need for eyeglasses or contact lenses to correct your sight and evaluate whether your current eyewear needs to be updated. But, that is only a portion of your eye examination. We also perform testing to make sure your eyes are healthy. As part of the medical examination, we check internal and external health of your eyes, as well as evaluating alignment and functioning of your ocular muscles. These checks help us (and your medical doctors) to monitor how diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and other health conditions affect your eyes. We also diagnose diseases like cataracts, glaucoma, and dry eye syndrome.
