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 Vision Life OD, that basic checkup is brief and painless.

Having healthy eyes and great vision are key factors to success. Each comprehensive eye examination includes an assessment of your optimal prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses alongside what we like to refer to as a routine physical for your eyes. This physical includes checking both the front and the back of your eyes to check for any damaging eye conditions or abnormalities.

According to the CDC, diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in patients younger than 74. This is why it is important for every diabetic to have a comprehensive eye examination including dilation done annually. During the dilation the Doctor will check for any abnormalities and vision changes related to diabetes. Our Doctor also highly recommends retinal photography to take pictures of the back of the eye.

optomap retinal exam

Pupil dilation has been the traditional standard of care. It requires the use of drops that take approximately 10-20 minutes to take effect. The drops do cause some side effects such as blurred vision for 4-6 hours and light sensitivity.

Within a few seconds it takes a 200 degrees, high resolution image. The Optomap is easy for the patient, quick to perform, and best of all it does not require any drops.


The Optomap retinal exam provides:

  • A quick and easy scan to confirm a healthy eye or detect the presence of disease.
  • A panoramic view of the retina
  • The opportunity for you to view and discuss the Optomap images of your eye with your doctor at the time of your exam.
  • A permanent record for your medical file, enabling your optometrist to make important comparisons if potential problems show themselves at a future examination.
  • A good alternative for those who cannot or do not want to be dilated.

Corneal Molding or Ortho-K

Myopia, better known as nearsightedness, affects about 42% of American’s according to the National Eye Institute. It is predicted that by 2050 over 50% of American’s will be impacted by Myopia. So, what exactly is myopia and what can be done for it? Myopia occurs due to light rays bending before the retina. This is why people with myopia can see things up close but not far away, hence the term nearsightedness.

The most common treatments for myopia have been eyeglasses, contact lenses, and refractive surgery, however, these treatments don’t help fix the fact that the eyeball itself has elongated. This in turn puts myopic patients at a greater risk for eye health issues such as retinal detachment and degeneration.

Luckily, researchers have found some viable treatment options to help significantly reduce the amount of myopia an individual can have. These options include ortho-keratology, multifocal contact lenses, bifocals, and pharmaceutical options.

Ask our Doctor today if myopia control can help you.

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.
