Using an advanced imaging device, we will take photos of the back of your eyes. This easy and painless procedure allows us to view detailed pictures can help us assist the overall health of your eyes.

Digital retinal imaging allows us to gain a first look at what is going on inside your eye. Because early detection of eye problems can allow more treatment options, digital retinal imaging could prevent vision loss.

Dry eye is a condition in which there are insufficient tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. Tears are necessary for maintaining the health of the front surface of the eye and for providing clear vision. The lack of moisture in the eyes causes them to feel uncomfortable.

Dry eyes can be caused by:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Medications
  • Medical Conditions
  • Environmental Conditions

Although dry eyes can be a chronic condition, we can prescribe a treatment to keep your eyes healthy, comfortable, and prevent your vision from being affected.

Annual vision exams are an important part of preventative health care. Many eye and vision problems have no obvious signs or symptoms. Early diagnosis and treatment of eye and vision problems are important for maintaining good vision and eye health and possibly preventing vision loss.

Comprehensive Eye and Vision Examination

Based on the individual patient, a comprehensive eye and vision exam may include the following:

  • Patient History Review – Discussion of eye or vision problems you may be having, questions about your over all health, discussion previous eye or health conditions you or your family might have.
  • Visual Acuity – Reading of charts to measure how clearly each eye is seeing.
  • Preliminary Tests – Evaluation or measurement of depth perception, color vision, eye muscle movement, peripheral or side vision, and the way your pupils respond to light.
  • Keratometry – Measures the curvature of the cornea, the clear outer surface of the eye. This is critical for determining the proper fit for contact lenses.

Eye injuries may include cuts, scratches, objects in the eye, burns, chemical exposure, and blunt injuries to the eye or eyelid. Since the eye is easily damaged, any of these conditions can lead to vision loss if untreated.

Depending on the type of injury, you may experience the following symptoms:

  • Bleeding from or from around the eye
  • Bruising
  • Decreased vision
  • Double vision
  • Eye pain
  • Headache
  • Itchy eyes
  • Loss of vision
  • Pupils of unequal size
  • Redness
  • Sensation of something in the eye
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Stinging or burning
Individuals who are at risk of developing glaucoma should be tested regularly to maintain the quality of their vision. There are many different tests we can use to test for glaucoma. We use the latest technology to painlessly test the eye for glaucoma.
Low vision is a loss of sight that makes everyday life challenging. Anyone can suffer from low vision, but people over the age of 65 are the most commonly affected. Eye conditions like macular degeneration, glaucoma, & diabetic retinopathy can cause low vision.

If you or someone you love has been impacted by vision loss, contact us today.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration is the gradual loss of ability to see objects clearly. Objects could appear distorted in shape, loss of clear color vision, or dark or empty area appears in the center of vision. Central vision that is lost to macular degeneration cannot be restored. However, low vision devices, such as telescopic and microscopic lenses, can be prescribed to maximize existing vision.

Research has also linked eye-friendly nutrients such has lutein, vitamin C, vitamin E, and zinc to reducing the risk of Macular Degeneration.

Each sport has a different visual demand. We are able to recommend the proper eyeglasses or contact lenses to maximize vision and safety for your specific sport or activity.

Eye protection should also be a major concern to all athletes, especially in high-risk sports. Thousands of children and adults suffer from sports-related eye injuries each year. Nearly all of these can be prevented using the correct protective eyewear.

CustomEyes Vision Care also carries a variety of brands of sunglasses for outdoor sports activities, some even sport-specific.

Vision Field Testing measures your peripheral or “side” vision. It is a straightforward test where lights are flashed on and you let us know when you can see them.
