Adult and Pediatric Eye Specialists You Can Trust
Comprehensive Eye Exam
Unlike routine vision screenings, a comprehensive eye exam can assess your visual system and eye health. It allows your doctor to detect serious vision and eye problems so he/she can recommend more diagnostic or specialized tests as well as implement early interventions and proper management.
Orthokeratology is a non-surgical method to correct vision and a safe and effective alternative to LASIK. It can improve the vision of patients with myopia or astigmatism and effectively control degenerative myopia and help prevent retinal detachment, macular degeneration, and glaucoma. It can be safely applied for both children and elderly patients and can be reversed or modified anytime. Unlike LASIK, it is safe for patients with dry eyes and thin corneas. It can also be utilized for patients who have a recurring blurred vision even after their LASIK procedure.
Vision therapy is a customized vision program to correct strabismus (eye misalignment) and amblyopia (lazy eye). It can also be applied to patients with learning disabilities like dyslexia and ADHD. Unlike eyeglasses that only compensate blurred vision, or eye surgery that alters the eye muscles, vision therapy teaches the visual system to correct itself by stimulating the eye-brain coordination. Vision therapy is customized for each patient so no two patients can have exactly the same therapy program. Various devices like special lenses, prisms, filters, computer programs, special lights, and metronomes can be used during therapy. Take home exercises and regular doctor's visit may be implemented for patients that cannot personally come to the clinic for vision therapy.
RGP Lens Fitting
RGP lenses are the gold-standard for vision correction in patients with keratoconus, corneal scarring, and other anterior eye problems. Our clinic uses the most modern RGP lenses that are even more breathable than most soft contact lenses. Our RGP lenses are also more durable, and deposit resistant. RGP lenses can also be used by patients with dry eyes who cannot tolerate prolonged use of soft contact lenses.
Low Vision Rehabilitation
As of 2018, there are 1.3 billion reported low vision cases in the world. These people are usually mislabeled as blind, even when they still have some remaining vision. Common causes of low vision are eye diseases, genetic eye problems, and eye injuries. Our doctor may use low vision test charts, and trial of different magnifiers, telescopes, and filters, to maximize residual vision. Low vision patients are recommended to use special eyeglasses and low vision aids and devices to help them become independent enough to perform day to day tasks like reading, writing, using a phone, using a computer, watching the television, reading street signs, and other tasks. We can also assist low vision patients for PWD application.
Complete Anterior Eye Exam
Our complete anterior eye exam includes a series of externals eye tests that may include but not limited to the use of ophthalmic dyes, keratometry, and corneal topography. This is used to ascertain dry eyes, pterygium, conjunctivitis, keratoconus, and other diseases of the external eye.
Complete Posterior Eye Exam
Our complete posterior eye exam includes a series of internal eye tests that may include but not limited to intraocular pressure measurement and retinal imaging. Tests can help examine for floaters, diabetic/hypertensive eye disease, macular degeneration, and other diseases of the vitreous and retina.
Glaucoma evaluation involves thorough examination and counselling for suspect and established glaucoma patients on surgical and non-surgical treatment options.
Cataract evaluation involves thorough examination and counselling for cataract patients on surgical and non-surgical treatment options.
Pediatric Eye Exam
A pediatric eye exam is performed by an eye doctor specifically trained to manage the unique eye and vision concerns of children like history of prematurity, delayed motor, behavioral, or learning development, frequent eye rubbing, excessive blinking, visual inattention and poor focusing, misalignment of the eyes, and other eye and vision problems common in children. A child may not read or talk yet, but our excellent training and child-centered tests and facilities allow us to examine even uncooperative. Babies 6 months and older are advised to have yearly pediatric eye exams to monitor their visual development. Since most children do not complain of vision difficulties, one out of four children have undetected vision problems. This can lead to amblyopia, strabismus, or learning disabilities because 80% of a child's learning is through vision.
Strabismus and Amblyopia Evaluation
Amblyopia is very common in children due to undetected vision problems. Amblyopia can lead to strabismus (misalignment of the eyes), and will worsen during adulthood, if it is not corrected immediately. Strabismus and amblyopia evaluation includes the use of prisms, special instruments, different colored lights, and binocular vision testing techniques for proper diagnosis and treatment.
Primary Eye Care
Primary eye care includes foreign body removal and management of ocular emergencies like chemical burns, cuts and scratches, black eye, or similar eye injuries.
Color Vision Assessment
We offer two types of color vision tests:
1. Ishihara test which is used to screen patients with color vision deficiencies.
2. HRR test which is intended as a confirmatory test for patients who fail the Ishihara Test. Research shows that many patients who fail the Ishihara Test do not necessarily have poor color vision.
