Exams & Treatments
Comprehensive Eye Exams
Regardless of your age or physical health, it’s important to have regular eye exams.
During a complete eye exam, your eye doctor will not only determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, but will also check your eyes for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together as a team and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health.
A comprehensive eye exam includes a number of tests and procedures to examine and evaluate the health of your eyes and the quality of your vision. These tests range from simple ones, like having you read an eye chart, to complex tests, such as using a high-powered lens to examine the health of the tissues inside of your eyes.
Pediatric Eye Exams
As a parent, you may wonder whether your pre-schooler has a vision problem or when a first eye exam should be scheduled.
Eye exams for children are extremely important. The American Optometric Association recommends 6 months of age is when your child’s first eye health exam should be. Experts say 5 to 10% of pre-schoolers and 25% of school-aged children have learning related vision problems. Early identification of a child’s vision problem is crucial because, if left untreated, some childhood vision problems can cause permanent vision loss.
At Midtown Optometry we have maintained strong relationships with local surgeons to guide you through the iLASIK (blade-free) procedure.
The doctors at our Eye Care Clinic have extensive experience in the pre-operative evaluation and post-operative care of iLASIK and other vision correction procedures. By far, iLASIK is currently the most popular vision-correcting or “refractive” surgery available. But there are other options as well. We will help you find the ideal solution for your problem and partner with the best surgeon to perform your procedure.
Management of Ocular Diseases
As optometric technology changes, it is important to select an eye doctor who has all the right optometry qualifications.
Utilizing cutting edge technology we are diagnosing and managing, with greater precision, diseases like Glaucoma, Diabetic Retinopathy, Dry Eye, Macular Degeneration and Cataracts. Earlier and more precise diagnosis means earlier treatment and better outcomes. We are taking an aggressive approach to diseases that previously had few treatment options. Great advances have been made in the treatment of these diseases.
