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.
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.
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.
Orthokeratology utilizes specially designed contact lenses to temporarily reshape the cornea overnight to improve vision during the day.
Whether you need sports glasses for competition or recreation our opticians are here to help you find what you need.
Scleral contact lenses offer sharp vision and comfort for dry eyes, irregular corneas, or hard-to-fit eyes. They are very helpful for keratoconus.
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 of a second. These images are then examined to determine whether abnormalities exist within or surrounding the retina. Although not always a better option to dilation, the Optomap retinal examination may 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 procedure with the use of an intense white light. With Optomap, the flash of light occurring 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 to complete. An Optomap retinal examination utilizes a low-laser powered scanning ophthalmoscope to digitally perform a retinal scan. Different wavelengths of light capture images of your retina that we can filter for examination of each layer of the retina. Images are immediately viewable on a computer screen and stored for later comparison.
Should I Get an Optomap Retinal Exam?
Optomap retinal imaging 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, sudden 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
Difficulty 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 a $39.00 co-pay for Optomap retinal imaging in additon to any co-pay that your insurance requires.
