Why See an Eye Doctor?

dr broadhead from video 2

Reason #1:  Maximize Your Vision

Blurry vision is the main reason people visit the eye doctor.  

Clear vision is key to great performance in school, work, sports and reacreational activities.  Poor visions leads to headaches, poor grades, lack of productivity, frustration, and lack of enjoyment.  

Most common vision problems can be solved with vision treatment options such as eyeglasses, contact lenses, vision therapy, ortho-k treatment, or surgery.   

Reason #2:  Solve an Urgent Eye Problem

The second reason most people call their optometrist is to solve an eye problem.  Red eyes, painful eyes, infection, sudden loss of vision, a foreign body sensation, double vision, extreme light sensitvity, or flashes of light in your vision, are reasons to call your eye doctor without delay.  

In our office, same-day Urgent Appointments are available 7 days a week.

Reason #3:  Preserve & Protect Your Amazing Eyes

Eyes are amazing.  Vision is a miracle worth protecting.  

Blurriness can be a simple optical issue, but can also also be caused by eye disease.  No online eye exam, drugstore self-test, or school screening can detect if a loss of vision is purely optical or a sign of an eye disease.  

“A professional eye exam from an optometrist or ophthalmologist is the best way to achieve sharp, comfortable vision while ensuring your eyes are healthy and free of sight-threatening disease.”

– Dr. Jeff Broadhead

You should have Annual Vision & Eye Health Exams, even if you see great:

Poor vision is not the only reason to call your optometrist.  People with great vision need yearly eye exams too. 

Most sight-threatening eye diseases -- like glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic eye disease -- have no early symptoms until damage is already done.  Early detection is the key to preventing possible vision loss.


Reason #4:  Transform Your Image

This is probably the funnest reason to see your optometrist!  As serious as we are about making sure you see great, we REALLY enjoy helping you look great too! 

Which transformation is right for you?  Designer eyeglasses?  Sunglasses by Coach, Bebe, or Oakley?  Or breaking free of glasses with contacts or vision correction?   The options are endless.  And guess what:  You can choose more than one!  (It's not illegal.)




What is an Optometrist?

An optometrist is an eye doctor who specializes in maximizing vision and preserving eye health.  And optometrist is a primary eye care provider -- a primary care doctor for your eyes. 

Optometrists perform Annual Vision & Eye Health Exams, prescribe eyeglasses and contact lenses, diagnose and treat eye diseases, remove superficial foreign bodies from the eyes, providing both routine and urgent, non-surgical vision care.  

Optometrists obtain a four-year Doctor of Optometry (O.D.) degree at an accredited university, pass National Board of Optometry Examinations, and obtain a licence to practice under the authority of the State Board of Optometry.  


What is an Ophthalmologist?

An opthalmologist is a medical doctor (MD) or an ostopathic doctor (DO) who has completed an extensive residency training in eye and vision care and are trained to perform eye surgery.  

Ophthalmologists may practice general ophthalmology or specialize in certain areas such as cornea, retina, strabismus, refractive surgery, or glaucoma.    

Both Optometrists and Ophthalmologists are required to fulfill continue education requirements on an ongoing basis to maintain licensure and stay current with the latest standards of eye care.  


What's the Difference?  

Some people say optometrists are better looking, although that depends on who is writing the website article.  

Optometrists and Ophthalmologists train at different programs with different but complementary emphases.  Both are held to the same high standard of care.

iStock 000024504784 smallHow Progressive Eye Care Saves Busy Parents’ Time

Traditional doctors hours require parents to leave work early and take their child out of school for an eye care visit.  While kids don’t really mind missing school, the inconvenience to parents and the extra work it takes to get caught up on missed assignments is something most parents would rather avoid.

Many of our patients who are treating their nearsightedness with Ortho-K (overnight specialty lenses that reshape the cornea and correct vision during sleep) are school-aged.  Ortho-K treatment requires multiple visits to the office during the initial treatment period, making early, late, and weekend hours a great bonus to our Ortho-K patients.

With our extended evening and Saturday hours, you or your child won’t ever have to play catch up.  


Are You a New Patient?

During your first appointment, several important things will happen.  You will be greeted by a patient coordinator.  She will assist you in using an iPad to enter your eye and health history and explain your goals for the visit.  Paper forms are available upon request, if preferred. 

From there you will be taken to our examination suite where we will present you with a New Patient Gift and begin taking measurements to get your ready for the doctor.

One of our Top-Rated doctors will listen to your goals and concerns, complete a thorough examination of your vision and eye health, and provide a personalized treatment plan to help you meet your vision and eye health goals. 

Depending on your goals and needs, we offer complete optical services with the convenience of filling your eyeglass and contact lens prescriptions all in one stop.  We have an amazing designer frame collection, all brands of super-comfortable contact lenses, and other vision correction options your doctor may recommend.
