WHICH SERVICE DO YOU NEED?

Our website provides a wealth of information about vision and eye health.  Explore our site to learn about the professional eye care services we offer to current and new patients. Regular eye examinations are an important part of maintaining your best possible vision and eye health.  We accept new patients and are here to meet your eye care needs. 

Treatment of Eye Diseases

Our doctors treat and manage eye infections, contact lens related infections, embedded foreign bodies, styes, floaters, sudden vision loss or double vision and many other common eye conditions and diseases.

Laser Vision Consultation and Co-management

We have been providing pre and post LASIK and PRK care since 1996. Seeing a patient go from using glasses or contact lenses to losing their dependency on them is a wonderful feeling.

Adult and Pediatric Eye Examinations

Eye exams are a critical part of preventive health care. Like most health issues, eye diseases don’t cause noticeable symptoms in their early stages. At the SOC we provide comprehensive eye exams to check your eye health and measure your visual acuity. We offer eye exams for patients of all ages.

Optical Services

We have over 1000 of the latest frames and many brand names. Our opticians are knowledgeable and happy to help you choose your ideal pair of frames.  We work with the best quality lenses and lens options available on the market. We are sorry but our eyewear far exceeds the quality of frames and lenses that can be found on line or at the checkout counter at your local convenience store. Our quality eyewear can meet any budget. 

Safety Glasses
Contact Lenses

Over 45 million Americans wear contact lenses to see clearly.  Wether you are nearsighted, farsighted, have astigmatism, or need multifocal lenses, the doctors at SOC can fit you with the right lenses to meet your specific needs.

Low Vision Assessment

Advanced diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, corneal disorders and optic nerve conditions can lead to low vision. Our doctors can help assess your visual needs and find the appropriate treatment plan to help you maximize your vision.

Whether you need safety glasses for work or recreation our opticians are here to help you find what you need.

We Offer the Optomap Retinal Examination to Improve Eye Disease Detection

An Optomap retinal examination gives our doctors a detailed, panoramic view of the retina lying at the back of the eye.  By placing your eye in front of the Optomap instrument, we can capture images of the retina every one-quarter oa a second.  These images are then eamined to determine whether abnormalities exist within or surrounding the retina.  Although not always a better option to dilation, the Optomap retinal examinationmay be used instead of dilation when a patient does not or cannot have their eyes dilated.  In many individuals, Optomap retinal examination allows for a better view than dilation.  For example, photosensitive people have difficulty keeping their eyes open during a dilation precedure with the use of an intense white light.  With Optomap, the flash of light occuring before an image capture is so brief that many patients don't even notice the flash.

How Does the Optomap Device Work?

Optomap is noninvasive and takes less than a minute ot complete.  An Optomap retinal examination utilizes a low-laser powered scanning opthalmoscope to digitally perform a retinal scan.  Different wavelenghts of light capture images of your retina that we can filter for examination of each layer of the retina.  Images are immediately viewable on  computer screen and stored for later comparison.

Should I Get an Optomap Retinal Exam?

Optomap retinal emaging allows us to evaluate your retina for problems such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal detachments, retinal holes and tears, hypertensive and diabetic retinopathy, and many other common, and not so common retinal disorders.  Children usually prefer Optomap over having their eyes dilated because the procedure does not involve using dilating eye drops or shinning uncomfortably bright lights into their eyes.  It is standard of care to dilate individuals who have new onset floaters, flashes of light, diabetes, sunnen vision loss, etc.  As a result, Optomap retinal examination serves as a wonderful complement in situations like these, and others.  If you have questions please discuss with the doctor.

Dilated examination causes:

  • Blurred vision that lasts 4 to 6 hours

  • Light sensitivity that lasts 4 to 6 hours

  • Longer office visit to wait for drops to take effect

  • Only the doctor can view the retina

  • Difficutly in viewing the retina in light sensitive individuals​​

Optomap retinal imaging advantages:

  • No blurred vision

  • No light sensitivity

  • Quicker office visits (scan takes less than 2 minutes)

  • Digital imaging that can be reviewed and compared each year

  • Great alternative to dilation for asymptomatic "well visit" examinations

  • Patients can see their own retina

There is an additional $39.00 fee for Optomap retinal imaging in additon to any copay that your insurance requires.
