Frequently Asked Questions
Do you offer corneal transplant surgery?
Yes, our experienced ophthalmologists can take care of any eye surgery need you have. We offer corneal transplant surgery as well as more common surgeries such as LASIK® eye correction, cataract surgery, and glaucoma surgery.
How often should I come in for a regular eye exam?
To protect the health of your eyes, it is best if you come in for an exam once per year. To order contacts, you need to have a prescription that is not more than 12 months old, and for glasses you need a prescription no more than 2 years old. Regular eye exams enable us to catch eye problems and eye diseases in the early or emergent stages, which prevents blindness.
Can you take care of cataracts?
Yes, we offer experienced cataract surgery and treatment for cataracts and other disorders of the eye. Please contact us for an appointment.
Is it best to seek treatment for eye diseases from an optometrist, an optician, or an ophthalmologist?
An ophthalmologist has training in treating diseases of the eye, including surgery of the eye. Optometrists can test your eyes and write a prescription for glasses or contacts, but will generally refer you to an ophthalmologist for treatment of any serious eye condition. Opticians fill prescriptions for contacts and glasses, but are not involved in the treatment of eye diseases or in writing a prescription.
