OPTOMAP RETINAL EXAM
Premier Eyecare is proud to offer some of the most advanced eyecare
technology available. Optomap®, which has been featured on Dr. Oz, produces an
image of your retina, which is as unique as your fingerprint. This provides your doctors with a wide view
to examine the health of your retina. We
are proud to have this instrument at our office. We believe everyone should
have the opportunity to receive this helpful and valuable test as part of your
routine eye exam; it is fast, easy, and comfortable.
Since most eye disease is painless, many eye problems can develop without
you being aware of it. Many times, you
may not even notice any change in your sight. But, diseases such as macular
degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, and other health
problems, such as diabetes and high blood pressure may be detected with a thorough
exam of the retina aided by the Optomap®.
If it has been several years since you have tried contact lenses, you may
want to give them another chance!
Advances in technology have greatly improved contact lens comfort and
wearability for patients with astigmatism, dryness, and presbyopia.
The most exciting area in contact lens improvements
is in multifocal contact lenses that allow you to see far AND near without
glasses. There are also new single-use contacts (throw away each night) that are
a great new option for those with dry eyes and for pediatric patients. Ask us
about options for daily, weekly and monthly contact lenses.
Our Contact Lens
Evaluation includes a thorough evaluation of the health of the cornea (front
surface of the eye), as well as opportunities to try different lens types. Our doctors make sure that your contact lenses are not only clear and comfortable, but will keep your eyes healthy for years to come! Our professionally-trained technician will spend as much time as you need teaching you how to insert and remove your contact lenses if you are a first time wearer.
Our office provides services for all types of red eye-- eye infections, eye
injuries, and eye allergies. If you have
an eye infection or eye injury, our staff will work with you to schedule an
appointment as quickly as possible. In most cases, we are able to bill your
medical insurance for red eye office visits.
State of the art microscopes allow us to examine the front surface of
the eye for infection or injury; these specialized tools allow us to provide red eye diagnosis and treatment in a more efficient and accurate manner than an emergency room or primary care physician's office that does not have access to this type of instrument.
If you have itchy, watery eyes be aware that the seasonal or year-round
allergies can be easily treated, improving your quality of life in the process. Prescription eye allergy drops are available
that provide much greater relief than over-the-counter eye drops, or even
prescription allergy pills. Again, in
most cases we are able to bill your medical insurance for eye allergy office
We have the perfect glasses for you! Our patients tell us that we have so
many great options, that it is difficult to choose! We carry many designer brands
for both adults and kids. We also offer a value line
that is affordable without compromising quality. Our professionally-trained optician will help
you select the best frame for your face shape and for your prescription needs.
If you need specialty eyewear such as sports goggles, swim goggles, or poker glasses, we
can provide them with or without prescription power.
We offer free adjustments and repairs, on a walk-in basis, at any time even if the frame was not bought from our office.
We want to help you maximize the quality and
efficiency of your vision so you can achieve your full potential at work or in
the classroom, as well as during your hobbies and sports.
If your job, hobby, or favorite sports team leaves you spending time
outdoors, having the proper protection from the ultra-violet rays of the sun is
a must! We offer the very best sunglasses. From Oakley and RayBan to Coach and Tori Burch,
you can find the sunglasses that give you the comfort you want, the
ultra-violet protection your eyes need, and the look you love. Most of our
sunglasses can be made either with or without prescription power.
Have vision insurance, but don't need prescription glasses? Many vision insurance plans provide sunglasses in their covered benefits. Our staff can help you find out if this benefit is offered by your insurance company.
Parents may be surprised to learn that vision screeners performed at the
pediatrician’s office are designed only to catch gross vision abnormalities and
disease. Even if no eye or vision
problems are found during the screener or are apparent to the parent, the
American Optometric Association recommends scheduling your baby's first eye
assessment at 6 months of age.
Things that the Optometrist will test for include:
- excessive or unequal amounts
of nearsightedness, farsightedness, or
- eye movement ability
- eye alignment
- eye health problems
, developed by the American Optometric Association and Johnson
& Johnson Vision Care Inc., is a public health program designed to ensure
that eye and vision care becomes an integral part of infant wellness care to
improve a child’s quality of life. We feel so strongly about the importance of
healthy vision that we have elected to participate in the program and provide a
no-cost comprehensive infant eye and
vision assessment within the first year of life
. Vision development and eye health problems
are easier to correct if treatment begins early.
