Routine Eye Exams
Eye exams involve more than simply checking to see if you need glasses. Early detection of eye diseases is one of the most important reasons to get your eyes checked. During a routine eye exam, we’ll review your medical history, perform tests of your visual acuity, and examine your eyes to check for any irregularities. We may also ask to dilate your eyes in order to perform a more thorough physical exam. These tests will enable us to understand how well your vision is functioning, and detect any problems that may be developing.

Corneal Refractive Therapy
Are you a nearsighted glasses or contact lens wearer who would like to have better vision without surgery? Now there’s a way: it’s called Corneal Refractive Therapy. CRT is FDA-approved for treatment of myopia (nearsightedness). This treatment uses special contact lenses to gently and temporarily reshape the cornea, the effects lasting about a day.
In a typical case, your eyes will be examined and measured with special instruments. Based on this information, you will be fitted with a pair of special contact lenses that are worn for a period of time each day, usually overnight. When you remove the lenses, you can still see clearly – the majority of patients on CRT see 20/40 or better. You must wear the lenses on a regular schedule to maintain the vision improvements.
