Our optometric physician makes it a priority to maintain optimal vision and healthy eyes for you and your family. Changes in vision could be subtle and suggest a minor prescription change, or in a few cases, indicate something more serious.

Also, our practice has the very latest in diagnostic technology, including digital retinal imaging, visual field testing, and corneal mapping. With these advanced techniques, our doctor is able to diagnose such diseases as: glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, keratoconous, and many more!
Glaucoma and Cataracts Screening
During an examination, we screen you for eye conditions like glaucoma and cataracts. Both of these conditions may compromise your vision and in some cases will lead to blindness as they progress. According to the National Institutes of Health, cataracts and glaucoma are two of the leading cause of blindness. Cataracts are actually the leading cause of blindness in the world and affect more than 22 million individuals in U.S. alone. Early prevention is key to preventing complications. We utilize corrective eyewear, eye drops and oral medications to keep your vision and eyes as healthy as possible for as long as possible. Through continuous screening, we're able to treat the condition using more invasive methods when necessary.
The macula is part of the retina in your eye, and it may become damaged, especially as a result of age. As the condition progresses, you could find yourself losing a considerable amount of your sight. Since macular degeneration isn't curable, our GA optometric doctor will help you reduce the amount of damage done to your vision.
Eye Surgery and Other Eye Surgeries
Laser eye surgery corrects your vision using a laser that alters your cornea to correct issues like astigmatism, hyperopia and myopia without the use of corrective eyewear. Although some individuals may still require corrective eyewear, the prescription is weaker than the patient's original script. We'll determine your eligibility and refer you to a specialist to conduct the procedure. We'll also screen you for certain conditions and provide you with a referral for surgery if necessary.
Eye Injuries and Other Conditions
Eye injuries such as a foreign object or substance in the eye can lead to permanent eye problems such as blindness. We treat the problem immediately, so we can prevent serious complications. We offer treatment and therapy for other eye conditions such as dry eye, which usually entails managing your symptoms and treating the underlying condition.
