Pediatric Eye Exam
Contact Lenses

The doctors and staff having LASIK over 20 years ago are very happy and still seeing 20/20. "For anyone who has struggled with poor vision, it is a life-changing experience. By having the procedure performed on ourselves, it provides us with additional knowledge and experience so we can better advise our patients regarding LASIK. " We provide pre and postoperative care and only work with surgeons that have consistantly provided excellent outcomes for the last 20 years. Most poor LASIK results are from poor pre-operative evaluations. Performing LASIK on poor candiates that have either dry eyes, thin corneas, or some systemic conditions can leave the patient with very dry eyes, and /or blurred vision.

Adapt DX

This is the only technology that can diagnose macular degeneration (AMD) up to 3 years BEFORE it shows up in a regular eye exam. The cells in your eye that help you see in the dark (called rods), are the first part of the eye that is affected by Macular degeneration. This test has the concept of walking into a dark theater from the outside. Your eyes take a minute or so to adjust, and then you can begin to see in the dark.

With macular degeneration, the ability of the eye to adjust quickly from light to dark is impaired. The Adapt Dx test measures the number of minutes it takes your vision to adjust to the darkness and compares it to the normative database.

The end result is known as the Rod Intercept (RI). If the RI measures greater than 6.5, then that is indicative of underlying macular degeneration. If that occurs, then it is recommended to return for an extended version of the test to get a baseline reading so as to be able to monitor any future progression,

If it is determined that you have early signs of macular degeneration, lifestyle changes are recommended as follows.

  • STOP SMOKING: #1 risk factor that can slow up AMD progression

  • Increase intake of dark greens and fish such as spinach, kale, broccoli, and salmon

  • Exercise; cardio

  • Maintain good cholesterol and blood pressure readings

  • Quality sunglasses with Ultraviolet A and B protection

  • Addition of specific eye vitamins containing Lutein and Zeaxanthin

​​​​​​​This test should be performed if:

  • You have noticed a harder time with night vision

  • Over 50 and family history of AMD (There are easy genetic tests that can determine if you have the AMD gene)

  • Been told macular changes were noted in your exam
