We truly believe in comprehensive eye health examinations. Afterall, vision is about so much more than just seeing 20/20.
To ensure good eye health and vision, we are very proud to offer the following services:
Comprehensive Eye Exams
On average, we recommend scheduling an appointment once every two years to ensure your eyes are remaining healthy. If you have been diagnosed with an eye condition or ever have vision concerns, however, we recommend scheduling an appointment as soon as symptoms arise. Additionally, due to the nature of a medical device, contact lens wearers must have a corneal health evaluation annually to ensure continued use is appropriate.
During your appointment, we will review your patient history, visual acuity, perform extensive tests with top of the line equipment, and evaluate your eyes’ overall health.
If you are interested in contact lenses, please let our team know prior to your appointment. Contact lenses are a medical device and require an annual corneal health evaluation (in addition to a comprehensive eye health examination) to ensure continued use is appropriate. During your exam, we will discuss the various contact lenses available and determine the best option based on your individual needs and lifestyle.
Hard To Fit Contact Lenses
Do you find wearing contact lenses impossible? Are your regular contacts painful or constantly uncomfortable? You are not alone. Due to a variety of factors such as individual eye shape, specific conditions, impairments, or the aftermath of surgery, some patients are considered to have more difficulty wearing contacts than others.
Computer Vision refers to eye problems associated with the prolonged use of computers and electronics that utilize a digital screen. Although it can be temporary, there are times when computer vision can strain the eyes to a degree that permanently affects your vision as well. An existing eye condition can worsen as the eyes try to focus and adjust to a computer screen, and precautions should be taken if you spend long hours in front of a computer screen.
If you have been experiencing blurry vision, dry eyes, eye strain, headaches, neck or back pain, try adjusting the lighting, posture, and the distance in front of your computer screen. If computer vision symptoms persist, call us to request an appointment, we will perform a full evaluation.
Nearsightedness, known as myopia, makes it difficult to see objects from afar. If you are experiencing nearsightedness, corrective lenses such as glasses or contact lenses will be prescribed as well as the option of evaluating whether or not you could benefit from a non-surgical and long term correction for myopia. After a thorough examination, we will determine the prescription that’s best for you.
LASIK stands for laser in-situ keratomileusis and is a popular surgery to correct vision problems. LASIK can help people who are nearsighted or farsighted, as well those who have astigmatism.
LASIK works by reshaping the cornea with a laser, which allows light to be correctly focused onto the retina. A laser is used to create a small flap in the cornea, which is peeled back so another laser can reshape the cornea. The flap is then placed back and the surgery is complete.
Dry Eye Treatment
Evergreen Vision is proud to offer dry eye treatment for our patients. Ocular Surface Disease, also known as dry eye, can occur from certain medications, naturally by aging, or as a symptom arising from systemic diseases such as Sjogren's syndrome, Rheumatoid arthritis, or Lupus. If you have a minor case of dry eye, you may be experiencing irritation, excessive tearing, fluctuating vision, and/or a burning sensation in your eyes or no symptoms at all. Excessive dry eyes, or dry eye symptoms that go untreated, have the potential to damage eye tissue, scar your corneas, and impair your vision.
Doctors see various types of concussions, some more serious than others. Though many people don’t think that they need to see us, visual problems can be a sign of a concussion.
A visionary concussion is when the visual area of the brain is affected. Most concussions that linger past a few weeks actually have a visual component associated with them. This is why it is so important to be checked out by a sports vision clinic when you first get a concussion.
Here at Evergreen Vision, we perform eye surgery for our patients. With our state-of-the-art technology, we are able to provide the highest standard of care. In some cases, we may conclude that surgery is necessary. If this is the case, you can be sure you are in good hands. Following your procedure, we require a follow-up exam to evaluate your recovery.
Sunglasses are designed to protect your eyes from sunlight. While all tinted lenses help to protect your eyes from sunlight, some will protect your eyes better than others. Sunglasses with lenses that block ultraviolet sunlight are the best option. Although sunglasses can be expensive, there are many affordable brands that provide great protection from harmful sunlight as well. If you are interested in finding the best brand of sunglasses for your lifestyle, we can help you find them.
We have a variety of options for you to choose from that will comfortably fit your face and let you enjoy the warm weather in style. Prescription lenses can be applied to most sunglasses.
From birth, babies begin exploring the wonders in the world with their eyes. Even before they learn to reach and grab with their hands or crawl and sit-up, their eyes are providing information and stimulation important for their development. Healthy eyes and good vision play a critical role in how infants and children learn to see. Eye and vision problems in infants can cause developmental delays. It is important to detect conditions early to ensure babies have the opportunity to develop the visual abilities they need to grow and learn.
