Your eyes are an indicator of your overall health!
We provide primary eye care for your entire family. Regular exams are essential to maintaining your eye health and identifying problems before they start, regardless of your age or your physical health.
A comprehensive eye exam is not just determining whether or not you need glasses or contact lenses. Your optometrist checks the overall health of your eyes, checking for common eye diseases and making sure your eyes are working together to give you the best vision possible.
Contact Lens Fitting
Contact lens and eyeglass prescriptions are NOT the same!
Contact lens technology continues to improve every year. FEC doctors pride themselves on keeping up with those technologies so we may provide patients with up-to-date contact lens options. Our goal is to provide the clearest, most comfortable vision possible in the convenience of a contact lens.
A Contact Lens Exam includes tests that are NOT part of a regular comprehensive eye exam. A contact lens is a medical device and requires additional testing and evaluation to avoid a poor fit. An ill fitting contact lens or a lens that’s not a good match for your eyes can lead to blurry vision, infections, abrasions and even blindness.
NEW TO CONTACT LENSES?
Awesome! Fitting a patient in contact lenses for the first time is one of our favorite things to do. It is an exciting change both visually and cosmetically so we approach this milestone with positivity and enthusiasm. Family EyeCare Center offers one-on-one teachings with one of our trained opticians as well as follow-ups with your doctor to confirm our patients are set up for contact lens success.
Don’t take your eyes for granted!
A picture is worth 1,000 words! Taking retinal photos of your eyes each year is the most thorough and accurate way for us to monitor changes to your eye health over time. These photos also come in handy for military patients who frequently move as they allow for continuity of care between Family EyeCare and future providers.
We highly recommend that all of our patients have a digital retinal photo taken of their eyes.
Want to be less reliant on glasses and contact lenses?
LASIK is currently the most popular form of refractive surgery performed today. LASIK is a surgical procedure used to reduce or eliminate your need for glasses and/or contact lenses.
Family EyeCare Center will evaluate, prepare and manage your LASIK experience. We work together with the best surgeons in the area to ensure your experience goes smoothly. There are many factors that go into determining if this procedure is right for you. If refractive surgery isn't your best option, our doctors will find a solution that is.
You can't avoid them!
A cataract is the natural clouding of the eye's lens that affects all people! Cataracts typically progress slowly...Most people start exhibiting cataracts in their late 50s and early 60s, but don't require surgery until their late 60s or early 70s. We will guide you down the road of cataracts and manage your surgical referral and post-operation care once it is necessary.
Don't wait until it's too late!
While diseases such as Glaucoma and Age Related Macular Degeneration are not preventable, early detection and management is necessary to ensure the best possible outcomes. Family EyeCare Center takes pride in our state-of-the-art equipment and knowledge in treating and managing these serious ocular diseases.
Glaucoma causes damage to the optic nerve with few or no initial symptoms. Glaucoma can be associated with higher-than-normal pressure inside the eye.
Glaucoma cannot be completely prevented but if diagnosed early, treatment can help control the condition and limit its effects. If untreated, glaucoma causes loss of your peripheral vision and eventually blindness. Factors such as age, race, family history, and previous medical conditions can all contribute to developing glaucoma.
Macular Degeneration is the deterioration of the macula (where you have your clearest 20/20 vision). In most cases, reversing damage is not possible, but there are a number of preventative measures that can be put in place to reduce the risk and progression of macular degeneration.
