Routine Eye Examinations
For The Whole Family
Answer these questions- What do you do throughout a normal day that doesn't
require your vision? What would you do if you lost it?
For those who wear prescription glasses and contact lenses there is an
obvious benefit to having regular routine eye examinations. This allows
you to see your best. What about those who have "perfect" vision?
Why should they have an examination? First, your vision is only "perfect"
until we make it better! Second, having excellent vision does not mean
your eyes are healthy. Our doctors frequently diagnose eye diseases and
find signs of other diseases in those who do not require vision correction.
Most of the time these individuals have great vision; however, many eye
diseases follow a pattern of slow progressive vision loss. As the condition
worsens, the brain adapts to the vision remaining. In addition, daily
behaviors adapt. All seems fine. Unfortunately this creates a bad situation-
by the time vision loss is noticed by the individual it is often too late
to restore it. We must focus on saving what vision remains. The value
of a routine eye examination is priceless for these patients, their families,
At Vision Wellness your routine eye examination includes so much more than
checking your vision and determining if you need glasses. We use the latest
in diagnostic and refractive technology to evaluate not only your vision
and eye health but also your entire visual pathway from the front of your
eyes to the back of your brain where vision is ultimately processed. Should
you benefit from vision correction, the doctor will assist you in making
informed decisions about what products and/or procedures will best benefit
your individual lifestyle needs.
Medical Eye Examinations
There are many reasons why a patient may need a medical examination as
opposed to a routine examination. Following school our optometrists were
selected to complete a hospital-based residency which provided them in-depth
experience managing eye diseases and co-managing surgical cases with ophthalmologists.
The residency also allowed our doctors to work closely with multiple medical
specialties including family physicians, internal medicine, endocrinologists,
neurologists, rheumatologists, cardiologists, pharmacists, and more. Our
staff understands the importance of communication between us and your
other health care providers, and we work quickly to process incoming and
outgoing referrals as well as reporting the findings of your medical eye
examination back to your doctor. Vision Wellness is the correct west valley
choice for those patients who need more than just a routine eye exam.
We provide screenings for eye conditions and diseases including:
- Diabetic Complications
- Retinal Degeneration
Contact Lens Options
Do you want to have the option to see great without your glasses? Do you
need multifocal/bifocal contacts? Are your glasses an inconvenience or
safety risk when playing sports? Have you been told before that you cannot
wear contact lenses or your prescription is too high? How about trying
a new eye color? Do you have custom or specialty designed contact lenses?
Do you have an eye disease that prohibits wearing glasses and requires
advanced contact lens technology?
At Vision Wellness we offer help for all of the above! According to Dr.
Lee, it is rare that someone cannot wear contact lenses because of their
high prescription or an eye disease. We hear that a lot; however, we take
the time to successfully fit many of those patients with contacts. Schedule
an appointment for a contact lens examination and discover your options!
