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:

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.
