Comprehensive Eye Exams
Regular eye exams are an invaluable tool in maintaining healthy eyes by detecting and preventing disease in both adults and children. Some diseases develop slowly without causing pain or vision loss. Early detection of any problems can reduce the risk of further harm and allow for a choice of treatment options. Part of your exam includes the following procedures: Vision Check, Eye Pressure Check, Slit Lamp Examination, Dilated Eye Exam, Refraction for Glasses, and Glaucoma Screening Testing as well as a series of other computerized tests to determine the health of your eyes. Dr. Beatty performs most of our comprehensive new patient examinations.
Glaucoma Diagnosis and Management
Glaucoma, the leading cause of blindness and visual impairment in the United States, is an eye disease that can lead to a permanent loss of vision. We provide all diagnostic and treatment options for glaucoma care. Glaucoma generally provides no warning signs or symptoms of disease, making testing an important part of a full vision exam. We utilize the latest and most advanced computerized tests to diagnose glaucoma. For those who require treatment options, there are many, including topical eye drop self-administration, laser treatment, which can be utilized for precise, quick healing, and more advanced surgical options, for those difficult and advanced cases of glaucoma.
A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens inside the eye. A cataract is a gradual thickening of the lens that causes the lens to become so clouded that light is either distorted or cannot reach the back of the eye (the retina) for transmission to the brain. When left untreated, cataracts will eventually cause blindness in most cases.
