Wellness Vision and Eye Health Exams
For patients of all ages, the American Optometric Association recommends that children have their first eye exam between 6 and 12 months of age. A yearly check-up for your eyes will not only keep your vision clear but can detect several warning signs for serious eye health and medical issues. Because many conditions show no warning signs, it’s important for early diagnosis to help maintain good vision and eye health. A Wellness Vision and Eye Health Exam includes but is not limited to preliminary tests such as peripheral vision testing, screening for signs of glaucoma, auto refraction tests, and an eye health evaluation from one of our doctors on staff.
Medical Eye Exams
Medical eye exams are for patients who are experiencing medical problems with their eyes such as itching, pain, redness or a sudden change in vision or for patients that have been diagnosed with a health condition known to affect the eyes such as diabetes or hypertension. At Atasca Eye Center, a doctor will address and evaluate your concern. We specialize in cataracts, ocular surface diseases (such as dry eye syndrome, meibomian gland dysfunction, blepharitis, & eye allergies), red eyes (conjunctivitis), keratoconus, glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachments, and other eye conditions.
Contact Lens Fitting & Evaluation
Our doctors will take all necessary factors into consideration to find the perfect vision, fit and comfort for your eyes paying close attention to the cornea, eyelids and conjunctiva and how contact use will affect the health of the eye. Additionally, one of our staff members will be able to guide you in the proper care and insertion methods for your contacts.
Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT)
Corneal Refractive Therapy is a technologically advanced, non-surgical process, which reshapes the cornea while you sleep. You remove the lenses when you awake and are able to go throughout the day without any other correction.
