The profession of optometry is dedicated to preserving sight. Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not always have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses, both as eyeglass lenses and contact lenses.
Our optometrist takes the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. They also have the ability to prescribe many types of eye drops and oral medications.
Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
