Routine eye exams are a vital aspect of preventive eye care. Without routine eye exams, vision issues often go undetected since most eye disorders don't have clear symptoms.
As a contact lens specialty practice, Woodley Optometry offers contact lens exams for all types of contact lenses, including daily disposable lenses, monthly lenses, gas permeable lenses, multifocal contact lenses as well as scleral lenses.
Dry eye is a condition which happens when your eyes aren't moist enough. It can happen if your body doesn't produce enough tears, if your tears lack the oily layer necessary to keep them from drying out too quickly, or if you don't blink often enough. It can also be a result of certain allergies, diseases, or medication.
Our office is pleased to offer the iWellness scan by Optovue, an advanced optometry service that utilizes cutting-edge technology to provide a comprehensive assessment of the eye's structures. This non-invasive procedure is designed to detect early signs of eye diseases and conditions, making it an invaluable tool for patients at risk of vision-related issues.
One of the newest ways of treating Blepharitis, Dry Eyes and Meibomian Gland Dysfunction is called TearCare. TearCare is a safe and efficient method to treating the underlying factors leading to dry eyes. TearCare functions by supplying the eyelids with directed heat.
Orthokeratology, also known as ortho-k, is the temporary reshaping of the cornea for better eyesight. It is accomplished with specially crafted and fitted contact lenses. The procedure is frequently compared to dental braces since it is similar to orthodontics for your eyes.
Myopia or nearsightedness is a common vision disorder. Your distance vision is affected by myopia. Myopia occurs when light rays incorrectly bend (refract) due to the shape of the eye or specific parts of the eye.
If you have ever been told that you cannot be fit with traditional contact lenses, we're happy to let you know that we specialize in hard-to-fit contact lenses at Woodley Optometry. These are designed for patients with high astigmatism, keratoconus, post radial keratotomy (RK surgery), post-LASIK, and others.
Patients who need intensive vision correction may be excellent candidates for contact lens usage. There are many reasons why contact lenses may be a better choice than eyeglasses for a particular patient. In addition to the aesthetic benefits, contact lenses don't have any frames to block your vision.
What happens if your contact lens gets stuck in your eye? Or how about “What happens when you get sudden eye pain?” Most patients don't know where to go for emergency eye care as most emergency rooms are not equipped with tools to accurately diagnose common eye conditions.
