Good Eyecare Begins with a Yearly Eye Exam!

Although many do not realize it, the best way to protect your vision is with a yearly eye checkup.  Even a basic eye exam can instantly detect many health-threatening conditions, such as tumors, vascular irregularities, and diabetes-related injury to the retina. At Acuity Eyecare, that basic checkup is thorough and painless.

Eye Examination

Medical Optometry

Optometry is so much more than just a glasses or contact lens prescription. Our optometrists are essentially primary care providers for your eyes. We will thoroughly evaluate your vision and your eye health ensuring that you will have the best vision possible throughout your lifetime.

Conditions we check for at every exam include cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, retinal health, dry eye, and allergies. We also treat eye infections and remove foreign bodies.

We regularly consult with your primary care physician and/or specialists regarding systemic health issues that have ocular manifestations.

Contact Fittings

There are many different eye conditions that require specific kinds of contact lenses, but finding the right kind isn’t always easy. Some eye conditions that are taken into account when your Optometrists find the perfect lens for you include, but are not limited to: Multifocal/Bifocal Astigmatism, Sports, etc.

Comfort is a very important aspect of correcting your vision, so we are very careful and diligent to uncover your needs. We then combine our knowledge of the most advanced lens technologies available to find lenses that fit your eye properly and comfortably.

Optical Coherence Tomography / OCT

When patients come to our office for eye exams, many times there is testing that we do to help us diagnosing problems.  One of these tests uses Optical Coherence Tomography, or OCT.   Pictures taken with our OCT machine are generated by light waves that reflect off the back of the eye or retina, creating images similar to what could be produced by a low power microscope. The OCT also provides cross-sectional images.   These images can display the various layers of the retina.  This technology is also used to image the optic nerve, which is important in glaucoma treatment and management.

OCT is a non-invasive and no-contact test that doesn't require preparation from the patient. There is no exposure to radiation since the machine uses light to obtain the images.  The patient sits in front of a machine, a couple of bright flashes like a normal camera flash go off, and then the photos can be viewed on the machine within a minute.

The OCT is an extremely valuable tool used to help diagnose and manage common retinal eye diseases such as macular degeneration, macular edema (fluid in the retina), and macular hole/epiretinal membranes. We use the initial OCT images to aid in making a definitive diagnosis.  The OCT compares these initial images of your eye to a database of images of normal eyes matched to your age. In this way, the first OCT images we take can help point out potential issues if there is something that looks different from normal or average.  Subsequent OCT images can then compare how you look now compared to how you looked initially.  This can be very valuable in gauging how well treatment is working or if the problem is progressing.

The other common use of the OCT is for monitoring and managing glaucoma.  We usually take initial images of the optic nerve, and the OCT can then compare these images to those of age-matched healthy control patients.  The OCT will usually be repeated every year so we can follow any changes or progression over time.

The advent of OCT has revolutionized the way we evaluate the retina because we can now detect subtle findings not otherwise easily seen during clinical exams. This makes the OCT one of the most valuable tests we can do in our office.

LASIK

 
LASIK

LASIK, a form of refractive surgery, is an popular option for vision correction, often eliminating the need to wear glasses or contact lenses. Simply put, LASIK reshapes the cornea with a laser.

Other surgical alternatives have become available. Among these is a technique called phakic IOL implantation which involves implanting a lens behind the cornea, but in front of the iris. With this new option, many of those who were too highly nearsighted for LASIK are now candidates for refractive surgery.

If you are interested in refractive surgery, please let us know. Refractive surgery is not to be taken lightly. Detailed testing is necessary to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for the surgery.  If testing shows you to be a good candidate, we can help you choose the refractive surgeon who is most appropriate for your case. In addition, we provide post-operative care for refractive surgery. 

Ocular Emergency Services

  • Did you wake up with itchy, oozing, red eyes?
  • Are you seeing spots or floaters all of a sudden?
  • Did you sleep in your contacts last night & now you don’t know if they’re still in?
  • Are you experiencing eye pain or blurred vision?

Our providers have extensive experience with ocular emergencies. We routinely remove corneal and conjunctival foreign bodies and treats corneal abrasions, infections, and other ocular injuries. That red eye can be a bacterial infection, viral infection, allergies or a serious corneal ulcer. It is important to have your eye problem checked by an eye doctor. If you have questions, please call our office at (603)893-8628.
