Healthy Eyes Are Our Focus
At Advanced Vision Wellness Center, we take an in-depth look at your eyes beyond simply determining a lens prescription.
Our team will examine the overall health of your eyes, check for any signs of common eye diseases, and assess the performance of both eyes together. We’ll provide advice and guidance on maintaining healthy vision and discuss strategies to address your concerns based on your needs and lifestyle.
When you visit us for an eye exam, we strive to help you get a deeper view of your eye health.Request Appointment
Why Are Eye Exams Important?
When it comes to protecting your vision, early detection is key. And what better way to protect your eyes than to have regular eye exams?
Regular eye care can help detect issues that can significantly affect your life, from age-related problems like glaucoma to conditions that require eyeglasses or contact lenses for correcting nearsightedness or farsightedness.
Common Eye Conditions
We look for a range of common and uncommon eye concerns. With an eye exam, we can look for:
Presbyopia is an age-related condition in which the lens of the eye gradually loses its flexibility, making it harder to focus on close objects. It typically begins around 40, progresses with age, and affects many people by their 50’s.
Symptoms of presbyopia include difficulty seeing things up close, eye strain, headaches, and blurred vision when reading or focusing on near objects.
The condition can be corrected with reading glasses, bifocal lenses, or contact lenses.
Cataracts occur when the eye’s lens becomes cloudy and opaque, resulting in milky or blurred vision. Symptoms may include difficulty seeing at night or in low-light conditions.
Cataracts can be corrected with glasses during early stages but must eventually be corrected with surgical treatment.
Diabetic Eye Disease
Diabetic eye disease, which includes diabetic retinopathy and diabetic macular edema, is a complication of diabetes caused by damage to the blood vessels in the retina. This damage can result in vision loss or blindness.
Early signs of diabetic eye disease include blurred vision, difficulty seeing at night, and floaters.
Learn more on our diabetic eye exams page.
Age-Related Eye Diseases
AMD is caused by deterioration of the macula, a small area in the center of the retina responsible for sharp central vision. Glaucoma is a group of conditions that often occur when pressure builds in the eye, leading to potential damage to the optic nerve and possible vision loss.
Early detection and prompt treatment are vital for managing age-related eye diseases and preserving vision.
Our Tech-Driven Approach
Our tech is what sets us apart. These technologies help us accurately detect and diagnose potential eye and vision problems.
Visual Field Analyzer
A visual field analyzer is a cutting-edge technology that helps measure how much of your vision you can actually use. It is a helpful tool for diagnosing issues like cataracts and glaucoma.
iCare tonometry equipment helps detect changes in the eye’s internal pressure.
It can provide a quick, non-invasive solution for glaucoma testing by gently using a probe on your cornea to calculate pressure.
Optos Retinal Imaging
Optos retinal imaging is a technology that helps create a detailed map of the back of the eye, also known as the retina.
This detailed imaging helps us detect any changes in the retina that may show the development of age-related vision disorders like glaucoma and AMD.
*There is a $39 fee for Optos retinal imaging.
Complimentary Dry Eye Assessments
We provide a complimentary dry eye assessment with every eye exam.
Dry eye is among the most common issues people face with their vision. We can help by offering a range of dry eye products and treatments to help restore comfort and clarity to your sight.
