Contact Lens Services
We have been fitting specialty contact lenses for years. We take pride in selecting the best contact lens type for each individual patient: from soft to rigid, extended wear, multi-focal, and beyond. We offer options to increase comfort for contact lens wearers who suffer from itchy allergy eyes. Our staff also trains all first-time contact lens wearers to ensure they are able to care for their lenses.
Our optical department only uses the finest finishing labs. We offer a wide selection of fashionable frames for all ages. Our staff is thoroughly trained to assist you in the proper selection of lenses to meet your every day and specialty needs. They will also ensure that your glasses fit well so they are comfortable and you have the finest vision possible. Please stop in and talk to Holly, Judy, or Barbara for their expert advice.
M'eye Fit is here! Our opticians have a new tool to better customize a set of lenses for each patient. Digital measurements and personalized characteristics are used to make the fitting experience more tailored to the individual.
No one knows your eyes better than your optometrist! If you are referred to a specialist for surgery (vision correction, cataract, etc.), our office can still provide your pre- and post-operative eye care. We can answer questions about your procedure and we will monitor your progress and taper medications to arrive at the best possible result.
Dry eyes can be diagnosed using dyes to observe tear patterns, evaluating tear production, and by reviewing your symptoms. Symptoms include scratchy eyes, burning, mild redness and gritty feeling eyes. Oral medications, reading, computer tasks and dry environments may aggravate dry eyes. Traditional treatment may include artificial tears, eye drops, or punctal plugs inserted near the tear drainage system.
The natural lens in the eye gradually becomes less clear as we age, and can impair vision. Our doctors can diagnose and manage cataract care, and we will recommend when cataract surgery may be a good option. Our office co-manages with cataract surgeons that are proven experts in the field.
Glaucoma gradually destroys the optic nerve tissue in the back of the eye. We always monitor for glaucoma during your annual eye exam. Tests include checking the pressure of the eye, screening for peripheral vision defects, and analyzing the appearance of the optic nerve. Most forms of glaucoma are successfully treated with eye drops to lower your eye pressure. Laser treatments and eye surgery are secondary treatments for more advanced glaucoma.
Diabetic patients should have a dilated retinal examination each year. Diabetes often stimulates the growth of new blood vessels in the back of the eye, which ultimately leak and damage the retina. We have the latest instruments used to detect changes n the back of the eye, including Optomap retinal imaging. If we discover advancing diabetic eye disease that needs treatment or further evaluation, we will refer you to a retinal specialist.
We recommend that children receive annual eye exams, starting at the age of one year.
Children's eye care is one of the specialties in our office. Your child will not only be evaluated for an eyeglasses prescription, but he/she will be checked for other eye conditions that can get in the way of learning and development. Eye turns and accomodative disorders are best caught early, and are often treated with exercises, vision therapy, patching, and sometimes surgery.
Should your child require treatment to help with visual tracking, eye teaming, or convergence, Dr. McMullen provides treatment options for in-home vision therapy.
Our office provides emergency appointments for eye infections, eye injuries, and eye allergies. Our staff will work with you to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. State of the art microscopes allow us to examine your eyes for infection or injury. After assessing the extent of the injury or infection, a treatment plan will be formulated and explained to you. Treatment may include medications and supportive care. Follow-up visits to monitor your recovery will be scheduled as needed.
We pride ourselves on keeping up with the latest diagnostic technology. We offer Optomap Retinal Imaging as an alternative to a dilated exam. In some cases, dilation may still be recommended by your doctor. The Optomap image can help the doctor to diagnose problems like retinal thinning, detachments & holes, macular degeneration, diabetes, high blood pressure or cholesterol, potential glaucoma, and other irregularities and diseases.
