EYE CARE SERVICES
Regardless of your age or physical health, it is important to have regular eye exams. During a comprehensive eye exam, Drs. Turner and Harrill 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. Drs. Turner and Harrill 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.
Our full range of vision care services include examination of children and adults, contact lens fitting of all types, and co-management of laser and cataract surgery.
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.
Glaucoma, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration are just a few of the common eye diseases which affect older patients.
