What sets apart The Eye Care Center from other eye care providers?
Excellence and understanding. Our doctors have extensive experience and truly care about our patients.
How often should people see a physician when it comes to eye health?
Regular visits will vary, depending on the patient’s age, family history and current health. It’s a good idea to see your doctor once every three years if you’re under 50 and once per year when you are 50 or older.
Why is eye health important?
Your eyes are a crucial part of everyday life, regardless of your age. With your eyes, you are able to see – to connect to other individuals, view your surroundings, complete work and much more. In fact, 80% of what you perceive around you, comes through your sense of sight.
What surgery and medical services do you provide?
The team cares for patients who need laser cataract surgery, eyelid surgery, corneal disease surgery, glaucoma and retinal disease surgery.
Can you offer any tips for people who work at a computer all day for their eye health?
One recommendation is the 20-20-20 rule. Individuals should take a break every 20 minutes to look at something about 20 feet away for 20 seconds. It’s also important to keep your monitor bright, so there is less “computer flicker,” which can lead to eyestrain and headaches.
Are there things people should know about cataracts?
When your vision becomes hazy, blurry or less colorful, you may find you have a cataract. During cataract surgery, the doctor will remove your eye’s cloudy natural lens (cataract) and replace it with an artificial lens, which is called an intraocular lens (or IOL). What’s terrific about this surgery is that most patients experience significant improvement in their vision and they are often surprised at how easy the process is to get through.
What kind of cosmetic care do you offer?
You can enjoy the results of great treatments, including Botox, dry eye care, Dysport, facial peels, fillers, Kybella, Ultherapy and wrinkle reduction/skin resurfacing through Venus Versa.
