Comprehensive Eye Exams

On average, we recommend scheduling an appointment once every two years to ensure your eyes are remaining healthy. If you have been diagnosed with an eye condition, however, we recommend scheduling an appointment once or twice a year depending on the severity.

During your appointment, we will review your patient history, visual acuity, perform preliminary tests, and evaluate your eyes’ overall health. From here, we will determine your need for corrective lenses and issue you a prescription for glasses.

Contact Lens Exams

Nowadays, most people prefer to wear contacts instead of glasses. If you are interested in contact lenses, please let your eye doctor know prior to your appointment.

 

During your exam, we will discuss the various contact lenses available and determine the best option based on your individual needs and lifestyle.

 
 

Astigmatism

Astigmatism is one of the most common vision conditions, and most people have some form of astigmatism. It can be caused by an irregular-shaped cornea or an abnormal curvature of the lens.

 

In many cases, it may cause blurred or distorted vision, which can result in pain and headaches. Typically, astigmatism is present with nearsightedness and farsightedness.

 

During your examination, we test for astigmatism using a phoropter and retinoscope, which both measure refraction. We will then work with you to provide options to best correct your astigmatism

 

 

Dry Eye Treatment

idoc Optical is proud to offer dry eye treatment for our patients. Ocular Surface Disease, also known as dry eye, can occur from certain medications, naturally by aging, or as a symptom arising from systemic diseases such as Sjogren’s syndrome, Rheumatoid arthritis, or Lupus.

 

If you have a minor case of dry eye, you may be experiencing irritation, excessive tearing, fluctuating vision, and/or a burning sensation in your eyes. Excessive dry eyes, or dry eye symptoms that go untreated, have the potential to damage eye tissue, scar your corneas, and impair your vision.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma occurs from damage to the eye’s optic nerve and can often lead to loss of vision and blindness. To detect glaucoma, our highly trained doctors will perform a proper screening to determine severity, examine the damage, and help you manage your glaucoma.

Early detection of glaucoma is crucial in preventing vision loss and blindness; the earlier the better. However, there is no official cure for glaucoma. There are several treatment methods that manage, slow down, or halt the process. Treatment for glaucoma will vary depending on the stage and severity for each individual patient.

 

LASIK Co-Management

LASIK, laser eye surgery, stands for laser in-situ keratomileusis and is a popular surgery to correct vision problems. LASIK can help people who are nearsighted or farsighted, as well those who have astigmatism.

LASIK works by reshaping the cornea with a laser, which allows light to be correctly focused onto the retina. A laser is used to create a small flap in the cornea, which is peeled back so another laser can reshape the cornea. The flap is then placed back and the surgery is complete.

We provide pre- and post-op evaluations to ensure you get the right treatment.

Ortho-K

Ortho-k involves temporarily reshaping the cornea through the use of specialized contact lenses, which are designed to be worn while sleeping.

 

Although these lenses are not very common and most people still prefer laser surgery, this reshaping method is gaining more popularity as the procedure continues to be improved.

 

Sports Vision

Sports Vision training involves high-level eye tracking, depth perception, and hand-eye coordination. Many athletes will practice these exercises to keep their eye health in peak condition.

 

There are various exercises and specific exams used for Sports Vision testing. Office and field tests can both help determine how your eyes will function beyond the realm of normal activity. We can customize a program to strengthen your vision based on your level of activity.

 

Eye Strain

Everyone experiences eye fatigue from time to time, but if you spend hours every day staring at a computer screen at work only to go home and watch TV, use a tablet or your smartphone, you may develop eye strain. Our optometrists can diagnose eye strain and will offer advice and modifications to reduce eye strain and symptoms such as headaches, watery eyes, dry eyes, and blurry vision.

 

The low wavelength UV that emits from screens have adverse side effects to the health of your eyes. You will benefit from a special form of an anti reflective coating that covers against the harmful blue light. 

 

Red Eye

Allergies, a dry environment, and infections like conjunctivitis can all cause red, irritated eyes. Dr. Golriz will diagnose and treats the conditions that cause red eyes.

 

You can count on attentive, patient-focused care at idoc Optical. Call the practice or schedule a consultation online today for expert treatment and care for red eyes.
