Protect & Enhance
As we age, our ocular health needs change. But one thing that remains constant is the need to protect and refine one of our most precious senses. From regular vision exams to cataract surgery consultations, we offer a range of services to meet the changing needs of every patient at our practice.
Nearsightedness, or trouble seeing objects far away, often goes undiagnosed in young children. If you notice your child squinting or having trouble in school, it could be time to schedule an appointment. These evaluations also allow us to catch milder forms of common pediatric conditions such as strabismus (crossed eyes), and begin treatment when it is most effective. We offer a range of cute and durable glasses for our younger patients, featuring specially designed materials like twistable, bendable frames.
Glasses and contact lenses remain trusted ways to correct the effects of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. But with advancements in the field, patients have a range of alternative options available, many of which can reduce or even eliminate your need for corrective eyewear. Most healthy adults with a stable prescription are good candidates for LASIK or a similar refractive surgery called photorefractive keratectomy (PRK).
Dr. Medina, Dr. Burges, and Dr. Borawski offer comprehensive vision correction for adults, whether you simply need your glasses updated or are interested in a more convenient solution. If you are considering refractive surgery, we can conduct an initial screening to determine your candidacy. We can also advise you on any limitations and provide treatment for conditions such as dry eye that might impact your eligibility. Our doctors also offer referrals to trusted, highly trained ophthalmologists in the area and provide complete post-operative care.
Our health and medical needs evolve as we age, and our eyes are no exception. You might have found it increasingly difficult to read fine print, or notice colors are not quite as bright as they used to be. These common issues could be indicative of presbyopia (age-related farsightedness) or a cataract.
According to the National Eye Institute, over half of Americans over the age of 80< will have experienced a cataract. Many people live with this condition for several years, offsetting the effects with visual aids. Our doctors can work closely with you to determine when your independence or quality of life has been affected to a degree that may require surgery. Surgery is often fully covered by insurance and we can refer you to a local specialist for treatment. Our staff is glad to work with your insurance provider on your behalf to secure the best possible coverage for your treatment.
