Besides being able to treat eye strain and prescribed glasses or contacts, your optometrist can recognize signs of serious diseases or conditions before noticeable symptoms appear.
At the office of Dr. Harvey Mayers, we are proud to offer adult and pediatric eye care, which includes routine and medical eye care services. These services include:
Besides being able to treat eye strain and eye disease and prescribe glasses or contacts, your optometrist can recognize early signs of serious diseases or conditions before noticeable symptoms appear. At times, there are no symptoms for many of these eye diseases. By using sophisticated imaging and diagnostic equipment such as the optomap®, your optometrist can see a much larger view (200 degrees) of the back of the eye and your retina than conventional eye exam equipment.
Just as you would expect your dentist to identify a dental problem and then treat it, your optometrist can identify and treat your vision problems and dispense the eyewear you need. Should any problems arise with your prescription eyewear, your optometrist will provide the best possible solution.
LASIK is an extremely effective outpatient procedure that is suitable not only for higher prescriptions but also patients with moderate to low prescriptions. It can be used to correct even the most severe 1% of prescriptions and has generated significant excitement in the eye care community around the world.
