We offer advanced glaucoma testing with the help of Humphries Visual Field and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT). Our doctors are capable of diagnosing and treating different stages of glaucoma to help slow the progression of vision loss.
We are pleased to feature a wide array of lens technology and fitting modalities to handle even the most challenging contact lens fittings, including Ortho-K. If you have felt that your vision simply isn’t good enough or your lenses just don’t feel right, we can help!

Ortho-k is the fitting of specially-designed gas permeable (hard) contact lenses that you wear overnight. While you sleep, the lenses gently reshape the front corneal surface of your eye so that you can see clearly during the day without further correction. These custom lenses works best on low myopic patients and is especially good for slowing the progression of myopia in children. Our staff will be happy to discuss your options and schedule you to see Dr. Elder - our Ortho-k specialist - for a consultation! Click here to learn more about Ortho-k
As a medically-based optometry practice, our doctors are capable of detecting and diagnosing a wide range of eye diseases and disorders. They can prescribe treatment for diseases and infections (such as pink eye), remove foreign bodies from the eye, and refer out to an ophthalmologist when necessary. If you suffer from ocular migraines, experience new visual disturbances, or have any pain or irritation in the eyes, let us help you get better.

Every year, contact lens and LASIK patients can expect to have a corneal topography scan. This machine creates a map of the surface of the eye, allowing the doctor to ensure that contacts fit properly or if they need to be refit. It also allows the doctor to spot signs of scarring and disease.
Humphries visual field machine allows the doctor to look for signs of glaucoma by thoroughly testing the patient's field of vision. By giving your eyes a point of focus, it randomly tests spots within your field of view using pin point lights. Using a clicker to respond, this test is able to monitor any blind spots in your field of vision that may be attributed to glaucoma.
The OCT machine allows us to scan different layers of the eye:
The iCare digital tonometer allows us to measure the pressure of a patient's intraocular fluid. A great alternative to the NCT (the infamous "air puff" test), the iCare is a more accurate way of checking eye pressure, an important indicator of glaucoma. A small, disposable probe extends from the front of the device and taps the surface of the eye to obtain a reading, but you won't feel it! Most patients report feeling a tickle on their eyelashes. If you or your child have trouble with the air puff test, ask for the iCare tonometer at your next exam!
