Eye Exams

We employ the latest in advanced instrumentation.  Technology improves the detection and treatment of diseases, as well as determining the best correction with glasses or contacts lenses if needed, all while allowing the doctors to see their patients in a relaxed atmosphere.

Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are an important part of almost any modern optometric practice.  We fit all types of contact lenses, however we fit contact lenses for astigmatism, as well as advanced and difficult contact lenses such contacts for people that have been referred to us because they were unsuccessful with refractive surgery, have keratoconus, dry eyes, or have encountered problems with contact lenses.  We have especially found fitting children with contact lenses to be very rewarding.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a progressive disease in which your peripheral vision progressively decreases.  A patient's risk for developing glaucoma increases with age.  Our doctors are Optometric Glaucoma Specialists, they have received additional training in the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma.  Total Eye Care uses the latest technology in the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma.

Keratoconus

We utilize the latest technology in treating patients with keratoconus.  Many new modalities are now available to us.  Treatments range from the latest in soft/gas permeable hybrid contact lenses (such as the Synergeyes Lens), providing the optics and vision of a gas permeable lens to the comfort of a soft lens, to more traditional gas permeable or soft contact lenses.

Bifocal Contact Lenses

Bifocal contact lenses offer a great lifestyle option for those over 40.  Everyone hears about the need for reading glasses when the reach 40, but it doesn't mean you need to use cheaters or give up contact lenses altogether.  As little as 10 years ago the success with soft, bifocal contact lenses was about 40%.  Now we have many more bifocal contact lens options available and over 80% of our patients are happy with their bifocal contact lenses.

LASIK

Laser Assisted in-Situ Keratomileusis is the most popular method of refractive surgery.  It is a quantum leap improvement over the old method called (RK) Radial Keratotomy.  RK was followed by (PRK) Photo Refractive Keratectomy.  At Total Eye Care we partner with our patients in finding the best procedure (whether it is LASIK, PRK, 30 day extended wear contacts or clear lens extraction to name just a few of the options available) and the best surgeon for their situation and give our patients an unbiased opinion on the best procedure

Emergency Eye Care

Pink eye is most often the result of a viral infection in the eye; however pink eye can have numerous causes such as bacteria, allergies, and foreign objects in the eye.  We offer same day visits for patients with pink, red or painful eyes.

Post Refractive Surgery Contacts

Patients often seek us out to help them with complications caused by refractive surgery such as LASIK, PRK or RK. Some patients are unable to attain 20/20 vision after surgery even though they could prior to surgery.  These patients will often require special contact lenses to attain functional vision after refractive surgery.  We will custom design a contact lens, using computer aided design software, to improve their visual acuity.

Dry Eye Syndrome

Many patients find that contact lenses are uncomfortable or burn.  LASIK is another frequent cause for patients with dry eyes.  Systemic problems such as Sjogren's syndrome can also lead to dry eyes.  We have helped many patients improve their ocular comfort with the numerous advances available for patients with dry eyes.  Relief is just a phone call away.

Computer Vision Syndrome

Patients often ask us if computers are bad for our eyes.  No, computers are not inherently bad for our eyes, however if you have problems with your eyes computer use will often make the issue more apparent.  In today's business environment computer use is almost a necessity.  We provide solutions for our patients that allow them to use a computer comfortably, allowing them to be more productive.
