Optometry has come a long way from its roots in eyeglass fabrication and prescription. While still an important part of overall eye health and wellness, prescribing glasses constitutes only a fraction of the services we provide. Our doctors receive ongoing education and rely on years of experience in addressing a wide variety of ocular issues. These include anything from eye trauma to treatment and management of eye infection and disease.
A vital step in detection and treatment of these more serious eye issues is regular comprehensive vision and eye health examinations. Our exams include dilation on a scheduled basis and are designed to detect a wide range of problems affecting eye function, such as blurred vision or retinal problems . The American Optometric Association recommends that everyone have a periodic, comprehensive eye examination every one to two years depending on particular needs.
At Apple Eyecare we incorporate the most up-to-date technology to assist in evaluating prescriptions, peripheral vision, intraocular pressure, and eye health. Computerized examination instruments are used to supplement rather than replace personalized care. We test for glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and the ocular effects of many general health disorders such as diabetes and high blood pressure, as well as effects of medications.
