Our optometry team is committed to providing you advanced vision care services in a specialized and relaxing environment. Our services range from complete eye examinations to analyzing vision functions and eye related problems. Our optometry professionals test the eye in order to check if there are issues such as glaucoma and cataracts. The experts at our clinic offer complete pre and post-operative care to our patients. Here is a list of services that you can get at Eyes in Town.
The eye exam starts with an in depth case history to help us understand your overall health, what medications you are taking, your type of lifestyle, and work environment. This is followed by a series of vision tests to help determine what prescription is best for your needs and to assess if the eyes are working well individually or as a team. An eye health examination of outside and inside your eye is later performed to detect the early signs of any diseases that may affect your vision such as glaucoma and cataracts.
Additional tests may be done by the optometrist if more information is required to help maintain good eye health.
It is recommended that:
Infants have their first exam between 6 and 9 months
At least one exam between 2 and 5 years old
School aged children should be checked annually
Adults between 19 and 64 that do not wear contact lenses should be checked every 2 years
Adults that have diabetes, wear contact lenses, or have other sight threatening conditions should be checked annually
Seniors 65+ should be checked annually
We have a wide variety of stylish and trendy frames to enhance your vision. Our friendly staff helps you choose the frame that is perfect for you.
Dry Eye Treatment
We start by taking a detailed history of your overall eye health to determine the severity of your symptoms which may include burning, redness, watery eyes, blurred vision, or foreign body sensation. A series of tests would be performed to determine the quantity or quality of your tear film causing ocular surface damage. Treatment would then be provided which may range from artificial tears to in office treatment such as Blephex or prescription eye drops.

An important part of the complete eye exam is the eye health evaluation. With the aide of advanced diagnostic instruments such as the Cirrus Zeiss OCT, Humphrey visual field, and Optomap imaging we are able to diagnose, treat, and manage certain eye diseases and conditions such as glaucoma, diabetes, cataracts, corneal disease, and more. Each condition has a specific treatment plan which is monitored closely and reviewed thoroughly with patients leaving them with a comfortable understanding of their condition.
