Comprehensive Vision and Eye Health Examinations
Regular eye exams are an invaluable tool in maintaining healthy eyes by detecting and preventing disease. Some diseases develop slowly without causing pain or vision loss. Early detection of any problems can reduce the risk of further harm and allow for a choice of treatment options. The entire exam process can take an hour depending on the complexity of the problem. Each patient will be evaluated with a refraction, slit lamp, intraocular pressure and a retinal exam.
Pediatric Eye Care
We take pride in maintaining the vision of our younger patients in an environment that is lighthearted and fun. We want to insure the good sight, vision, and eye health for the rest of your child's life and take a preventative approach to his/her general health and eye health. We will work with your child's primary care physician to help keep his/her eyes healthy. It is important that all of our pediatric patients have healthy and efficient visual systems to help make visual demands of learning in school easier and fun.
Contact Lens Exams
Thanks to the advances in optical technology, almost everyone is a candidate for contact lens use. This includes patients with astigmatism and also those who prefer bifocal or multifocal lenses. At Dr. Chandler's office, we offer a comprehensive array of contact lenses to suit each individual patient's needs. We offer daily disposables, extended wear soft lenses to gas permeable contact lenses. We offer regular and custom lens services for both healthy and difficult to fit patients.
Digital Retinal Photograph
We are pleased to provide our patients with the latest technology from Canon. It is an advanced digital retinal exam called EyeScreen. EyeScreen is a high resolution screening photograph of your retina which will help us document, review, and compare your retina over time. We will use the EyeScreen Exam to document your retinal image for our charts, screen for eye diseases and improve our ability to view your internal retinal health at a much higher resolution than a slit lamp or ophthalmoscope. We are concerned about retinal problems such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal holes, detachments, and diabetic retinopathy (all of which can lead to partial loss of vision or blindness). Additionally, many symptoms of systemic diseases such as diabetes, the effects of high blood pressure and other diseases can be detected with the EyeScreen Examination.
For those patients needing glasses or contact lenses, we offer a complete optical department. We carry a wide selection of high fashion eyewear and designer frames.
