Proper eye care is important for people of all ages and regular eye exams are encouraged for everyone, but especially for those already using glasses or contact lenses. Your vision plays a vital role in your life each and every day, which is why it is so important to take the right steps for maintaining good eye health. At Carmel Mountain Vision Care Optometry, we provide a variety of services, from general exams to corrective surgery. We also carry a wide selection of eye frames for our patients as well.
Comprehensive Eye Exams – Everyone needs regular eye exams. It’s important for adults to schedule eye exams to monitor their eye health and check for problems. Conditions that are often detected during eye exams include glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy. Early detection of these conditions allows for the widest range of treatment options and the best chance of slowing or reversing any symptoms.
Dry Eye Treatment – To keep your eyes healthy, you need to have tears to provide moisture and lubrication. This is not only for your comfort, but it helps with your vision. Tears are secreted by glands around your eyes. When you do not make enough tears, you have a condition called dry eyes. There is no cure for dry eye. Instead, we have ways to make you more comfortable. There is a product called artificial tears. This comes in drops and ointments. Depending on your needs, one may work better for you.
Pediatric Eye Exams – With so much going on in your child’s life it can be difficult to keep up, but it’s important to make sure they can see the world in front of them as clearly as possible.
Ortho-K – Many people prefer to avoid surgery if possible. However, if you are looking to improve your vision as dramatically as surgery would, you may be interested in orthokeratology, commonly known as “ortho-k”.
Low Vision – Low vision describes vision loss. Even if patients wear eyeglasses or contacts, they may still have trouble with their vision. At times medications and surgery are not able to help this vision loss, though we will do everything we can to ensure that the condition does not progress into blindness.
Eye Disease Treatment – If you ever feel as though you are having vision problems, you will want to book an appointment with your eye doctor right away. Your eyes are a critical part of your daily life, and it is important that you take care of them.
Advanced Technology – To provide your family with clear, comfortable vision, our practice regularly invests in state-of-the-art instruments rivaling what you might find in leading optometric teaching institutions.
Emergencies & Foreign Body Removal – When you get something in your eye, it is very important to get it out as soon as possible. Foreign objects can damage your eye causing scratches, ulcers, and even more. It is also important not to try to remove them yourself, causing even more damage! If you ever have something in your eye, we will happily remove it for you. We also use this time to ensure that you don’t have any damage from the foreign body.
LASIK Surgery – LASIK stands for laser in-situ keratomileusis and is a popular surgery to correct vision problems. LASIK can help people who are nearsighted or farsighted, as well those who have astigmatism.
Refractive Surgery Co-Management – If you are interested in laser surgery, we will begin with a comprehensive eye examination, which will let us know more about you and your needs. We may have to perform some testing to properly diagnose your eye conditions.
