EYE CARE SERVICES

Regardless of your age or physical health, it is important to have regular eye exams. During a comprehensive eye exam, our Doctors will not only determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, but they will also check your eyes for ocular diseases, assess how your eyes work together as a team, and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health.

As optometric technology changes, it is even more important to select an eye doctor who has all the right qualifications and follows the latest developments in eye care. Our Doctors make it a policy to ensure that all staff members are up-to-date on the latest technology and techniques to make your visit as effective and comfortable as possible.

Utilizing cutting edge technology we are able to diagnose and manage diseases like glaucoma, macular degeneration and cataracts. Earlier and more precise diagnosis means earlier treatment and better outcomes for our patients.

The visual system is a delicate and complicated part of the human anatomy. All parts of the eye and many parts of the overall body affect your ability to see. In our comprehensive eye and vision examination, the health of your eyes is evaluated from cornea to retina.

Your examination includes a number of tests and procedures that can detect eye problems that may go unnoticed and are not detected by school vision tests or routine health physicals.

Vision and Eye Health Examinations include:

  • A series of tests designed to determine whether your eyes are healthy and free of disease. A careful check will be made for certain diseases that manifest themselves in the eye.

  • A number of objective tests are taken which allow us to observe and measure your eyes without your active participation. These tests also enable us to examine small children of preschool age.

  • Next a number of subjective tests are taken. Here you will be actively participating. We will ask you a number of questions and will expect you to answer them as well as you can.

  • Additional tests will be performed to assess the muscular balance of your eyes, how well your eyes work as a team, and how well your eyes focus.

At the conclusion of the exam, we will explain the results of the tests and make recommendations for any needed preventative or remedial vision care.

When you visit our experienced optometrists in Eden, NC, you will leave knowing you have had a comprehensive vision and eye health examination. We specialize in hard to fit contact lenses.

If I'm seeing fine, why do I need an eye exam?

Glaucoma, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration are just a few of the common eye diseases which affect older patients.

Even if your vision is fine, annual eye health exams can detect eye and systemic diseases in the early stages when it is easier to prevent vision loss. Help maintain quality of life with good eye care.

People with diabetes, high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis and taking certain medications are especially at risk for eye diseases and vision loss.

Everyone wants to protect the eyesight and overall health for themselves and their loved ones - that is why annual eye exams are important. Regular eye care and exams can protect and prevent many eye diseases, if detected early.

Today, a whole range of eye problems can be treated successfully without total vision loss.

Many vision problems can begin at an early age, so it's also important for you and your family to schedule an appointment with our Doctors, as your prefered optometrists in Eden, NC.

When should my child have their eyes examined?

According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), infants should have their first comprehensive eye exam at 6 months of age. Children then should receive additional eye exams at 3 years of age, and just before they enter kindergarten or the first grade at about age 5 or 6.

A pediatric eye examination by our Doctors includes:

  • Evaluation of vision and ocular health
  • Eye teaming (binocularity) skills
  • Eye movement skills
  • Focusing skills
  • Evaluation for amblyopia (or “lazy eye”)
  • Evaluation for strabismus (or eye turn)

For school-aged children, the AOA recommends an eye exam every two years if no vision correction is required. Children who need eyeglasses or contact lenses should be examined annually or according to their eye doctor’s recommendations. It's important for parents to make sure their children's eyes are healthy. Approximately 80 percent of all learning during a child's first 12 years comes through vision.

Good eye health and vision is important to your child's learning, and vision problems can affect their performance in school. Undetected or untreated vision problems can hinder a child's ability to perform to their full potential in school. In fact, many eye diseases can impair vision or lead to vision loss, which is why it is important for people of all ages to have their eyes checked regularly.

At least 10 to 15 percent - or 8 to 12 million - children are at risk for vision impairment. Prevention of these conditions can be easy and can help your student perform his or her best at academics and sports, so schedule your child's eye exam today with our eye doctors in Eden, NC. While you are at it, schedule your own exam too!

Special Testing Means Extra Special Eye Care

optomap retinal exam

A high-definition digital image of the retinal area helps your eye doctor diagnose and manage eye diseases in the delicate retinal area. Damage to these delicate structures of the retinal area is often the first sign of systemic diseases such as MS, diabetes and more. The retina is the “window to the body” and routine retinal imaging can help your eye doctor monitor the changes in your eye health from year to year.










Today’s high-resolution lenses require laser-precision measurements to perform their best. Our Visioffice system from Essilor allows the opticians to obtain every possible parameter required for modern lenses with extreme accuracy. Our Visioffice system will let you see your best from your new custom, digital lenses from Varilux. No-line bifocals and single vision lenses can be produced precisely the way your eyes will be using them.

Our high-definition digital lenses use the Visioffice® System to calculate a perfect match of lenses based on eye, frame and behavior data. This “dynamic 4D” measurement system uses eye data by precisely tracking optical Eye Center Rotation, or “ERC.” To focus, the eye rotates around a fixed point called the ERC. The Visioffice® system uses advanced technology to measure this ERC and your dominant eye to make your custom lenses. Frame data such as the size and fit are taken into account to ensure that your new lenses are made precisely for your frame. Behavior data uses natural head posture and gaze to target best vision where you look and see. High-definition digital lenses uses the latest in manufacturing techniques to ensure sharper vision at any angle and under any lighting conditions.

Enhanced Fit™ lenses use W.A.V.E. technology™ to provide sharper vision as well as take into account frame data and prescription to make custom lenses for you. Ipseo™ lenses add behavioral data to create a lens that matches you personally and creates wide, comfortable vision for progressive lens wearers. Fit™ and Eyecode™ are available in multifocal and single vision versions. The result is clear, sharp vision all the time.

Our Relationships with Specialists Keep You Seeing Your Best

LASIK Vision Correction

In our office, you will receive a thorough and detailed assessment to determine your candidacy for laser vision correction. Feel free to ask any questions that you may have. Our Doctors are fully certified and experienced in laser vision correction consultation and post-operative care.

We know that laser vision correction is a considerable decision, and your needs and expectations will be taken into account in the evaluation process. You will receive an unbiased recommendation as to your suitability for the procedure.

TLC Laser Eye Centers provide the laser correction and we can handle all post-operative visits and subsequent exams.

Cataract Surgery & Low Vision

A cataract is a clouding of the lens inside the eye. The lens sits just behind the pupil and is responsible for focusing light. As the lens increases in cloudiness, it becomes more difficult to see objects clearly and bright lights can cause glare. The most common form of cataract is that of aging and it is inevitable as we mature. In most cases, cataracts do not cause any harm to the eye and cataract surgery is only done to improve the vision in which glasses no longer can improve the vision. Cataract surgery is more the patients decision than ours, because we usually preserve surgery only when the cataracts are affecting your daily life. There is no harm in delaying surgery if your life is only minimally affected.
