If you or any family member experiences an urgent eye situation, do not hesitate to contact us for emergency eye care. We’re here to safeguard your vision.
Proactive Detection & Management of Eye Diseases
Several eye conditions can slowly progress without noticeable signs, but our tech-driven approach helps detect these problems early, allowing us to develop personalized strategies to help protect and preserve your eye health.
Some of the most common concerns we help address include diabetic eye disease, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration.
Diabetic Eye Disease
Diabetic retinopathy is an issue that can develop when elevated blood sugar levels damage the blood vessels in the retina. If left untreated, it can lead to vision loss.
To help protect your eyes, we recommend having regular eye exams as directed by your optometrist. Learn more about how diabetes affects your eyes on our Diabetic Eye Exams page.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a prevalent cause of vision loss for older adults.
AMD occurs when tiny clumps of protein damage the macula, the part of the retina responsible for providing central vision. As AMD develops, it can affect your ability to read, drive, and recognize faces.
Glaucoma refers to a range of eye conditions that can affect the optic nerve, resulting in progressive vision loss. Glaucoma often advances stealthily and without warning signs, making it difficult to detect until considerable visual impairment has taken place.
To safeguard your vision from permanent damage, make sure you’re visiting us for regular eye exams.
Focusing on Children’s Eye Health
Our comprehensive eye care extends to our young patients as well.
We are dedicated to identifying and addressing potential vision issues during childhood eye exams so we can suggest suitable strategies for helping maintain clear and comfortable vision for your child.

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a prevalent vision condition that causes distant objects to appear blurry while close objects remain clear. It happens when the light entering the eye converges in front of the retina rather than directly on it.
Regular eye exams help detect myopia early and manage its progression.
Amblyopia, or lazy eye, is a condition that often affects children. It causes misalignment in one eye and can result in future vision complications.
Regular eye exams can aid in the early detection of amblyopia, enabling appropriate treatment options, such as eyeglasses, patching therapy, or surgery.
Our Tech-Focused Approach
We believe in coupling modern technology with our expertise to provide outstanding care for your eyes.
Ranging from retinal imaging to visual field analysis, our advanced diagnostic procedures assist us in accurately identifying and managing potential eye issues.
Optos Retinal Imaging
Optos retinal imaging is a technique used to observe the retina, which resides at the back of your eye and plays a vital role in transforming light into the images you see.
Optical Coherence Tomography
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) can capture detailed cross-sectional images of your retina, much like an ultrasound.
This technology helps us identify conditions such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and diabetic eye disease.
Visual Field Analysis
Examining your visual field can help detect blind spots in your vision caused by eye diseases like glaucoma, which can impact your peripheral vision.
