Below is an overview of some of the services our optometry clinic offers to the residents in Victorville, CA, and surrounding areas.
Comprehensive Eye Exams
Since many conditions are due to age, medications, family histories, injuries, and other factors, and can cause vision loss, blindness, and subtle symptoms, it is imperative to schedule an eye exam every year with an eye doctor. Comprehensive eye examinations are thorough assessments that check the health of the eyes and visual systems. If a problem is detected and treated right away, we can help you preserve your vision and keep your eyes healthy.
An eye exam entails a range of tests, including:
- Eye muscle test
- Visual acuity and field test
- An assessment of refractive errors
- Testing of color vision
- Slit-lamp test
- Retinal exam
- Screening for eye conditions like glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, and more
Depending on what you have, we prescribe corrective lenses, eye drops, sunglasses, contact lenses, or other therapies. Our optometrist will go over in more detail about what is best for you during your exam appointment.
Specialty Contact Lenses
While contacts are convenient, enhance appearance, are comfortable, and recommended for sports participation, it is not right for everyone. Some people suffer from conditions that make it challenging to wear contact lenses, such as keratoconus, dry eyes, presbyopia, astigmatism, and giant papillary conjunctivitis.
At our optometry practice, we offer specialty contact lenses to help people with those hard-to-fit conditions, and these include:
- Bifocal and Multifocal: Similar to progressive and bifocal eyeglasses, these contacts can improve close-up vision.
- Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP): This material doesn’t conform to the shape of the cornea and can provide sharper vision to those with keratoconus. Patients who suffer from dry eye can also benefit from RGP.
- Toric: Used to correct astigmatism, these lenses can be soft or rigid and are custom-made to fit most eyes.
Eyeglasses and Contact lenses
In addition to specialty lenses, we also offer expert fitting for standard contacts and carry a wide selection of eyeglass frames, including designer frames, sunglasses, and protective eyewear, to meet your budget.
