Vision Correction

Our entire focus is to help you see your absolute best!

To do this, we offer comprehensive eye health examinations along with vision tests. If your vision is not normal, we will make recommendations to ensure that you can see as clearly as possible. We may offer you the option of eyeglasses,  contact lenses or refractive surgery  to give you the vision you deserve.

Common vision issues include myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia.

Factors such as lifestyle, environment, work setting, and age can all determine which solution is best for you.

We look forward to discussing your options with you so that you can enjoy clear vision in the most comfortable way possible.

Common Vision Problems

Astigmatism

Astigmatism happens when the cornea (the clear part of the front of the eye) develops in the shape of a football rather than the shape of a basketball (the same curvature across the whole surface). Many people think astigmatism is a horrible eye disease, but its actually very normal and most people have some degree of astigmatism.

Myopia (Near-Sighted)

Near sighted, known as myopia, makes it difficult to see objects far away. It is caused when the light entering the eye is focused in front of the retina instead of on it. This typically occurs when the eyeball is too long, which is common in children who are growing quickly.

Hyperopia (Far-Sighted)

Far sighted, known as hyperopia, can make it more difficult to see objects closer to you (reading, computer, etc). It is caused when the light entering the eye is focused behind the retina instead of on it.  This typically occurs when the eye is too short.

Presbyopia

Presbyopia happens to every eye as we get older.  There is a lens inside of our eye that flexes to allow our eye to focus from distance to near objects. As we get older (usually our early to mid forties) that lens begins to stiffen and it gets harder to see small print, especially in dim light. In many cases we find that holding print farther away helps us see it better.
