General Eye Exam
General eye exams are available at V I S I O N by AMEL. A general eye exam assesses the overall health of the eyes. The external appearance of the eyes, the eyelids, lashes, tear ducts, and the skin surrounding the eye will be inspected. The ability of the eyes to move normally and in coordination with each other will also be examined. The health of the eyes will be carefully accessed. A full exam, with the use of a microscope, will be conducted to ensure that all visible structures of the eyes are healthy.
Adult & Pediatric Comprehensive Eye Exams
Regardless of your age, routine eye exams are important for your health. Eye exams do more than just evaluate vision—they can detect eye diseases as well as conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes, and provide an indicator for your overall health.
At our practice, we provide comprehensive eye exams for people of all ages, including glaucoma and cataract testing, computerized peripheral vision testing and retinal photography, diagnosis and treatment of various eye diseases, LASIK surgery consultation for those interested in laser vision correction, and more.
Contact Lens Eye Exams & Fitting
We give each individual patient specialized care to make sure we prescribe the right contact lenses for you. Our contact lens exams include all of the regular components of a comprehensive vision exam, plus a mapping of your cornea, numerous digital measurements, and we test your tear production.
Once we have your prescription ready, we’ll check for the proper fit and comfort of your lenses. We also provide training for insertion and removal, proper lens care, and we can answer any questions or concerns you may have about your new lenses. With our large stock of thousands of quality contact lenses, we can get you tested, fitted, and walking out the door with crystal clear vision all in one day.
Also known as Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis, LASIK is the most common type of vision correction surgery. The procedure is highly effective, with many patients claiming to see better than at any other time in their life after they recover from surgery. It can be performed to correct myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.
Although LASIK is common, it is still a serious procedure that may not be right for everyone. That’s why we offer a comprehensive screening process to determine whether or not you’re a LASIK candidate. We’ll provide in-depth discussion and careful guidance to ensure that you’re fully prepared for your procedure.
If you do decide to undergo LASIK surgery, we also offer a series of follow-up visits to determine the health of your eyes and evaluate your satisfaction with the results.
How LASIK Works:
During the procedure, anesthetic eye drops are applied and a LASIK surgeon will create a flap in the outer layer of the cornea to allow the lasers to access the underlying tissue.
Computer eye tracking is used to ensure precision of the lasers, and the cornea then receives controlled pulses of laser light in order to reshape the inner corneal layer.
After the cornea is reshaped to meet the patient’s needs, the surgeon repositions the flap to its original position and protective patches are placed over the eyes for the next few hours as the flap heals naturally.
Other Types of LASIK:
Custom LASIK – This is the most precise form of LASIK surgery, which involves using Wavefront Technology to measure exactly how light travels through your eyes, providing a detailed analysis of your entire optical system. This gives the computer system an additional level of data to better correct your vision.
Bladeless LASIK – While traditional LASIK requires a surgeon to use a blade to create the corneal flap, as the name implies, Bladeless LASIK allows the surgeon to use a laser to create a more precise corneal flap.
With our onsite LASIK and optometric facilities, we can provide everything from pre-LASIK screening, to the actual LASIK procedure, to post-operative care. However, if you decide to have your LASIK procedure performed elsewhere, we can still provide co-management for your surgery by offering all the pre and post-operative care you need. We’ll work closely with experienced and trustworthy surgeons to make sure your procedure goes as smoothly as possible.
