Regular Eye Exams
Routine eye exams are more than vision checks for corrective contacts or glasses. We check for the overall wellness of your eyes and monitor any changes that occur. Our eye care in Columbia tests for current vision problems and detects potential threats such as glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration.
Digital Retinal Photography
Digital retinal photography gives us a high-definition view of your retina, optic nerve, and all of the blood vessels of the retina. It allows our optometrist in Columbia to study your retina as a whole, rather than in smaller views. We recommend digital retinal photography to all of our patients. It is a baseline exam that establishes a reference for your eye health. We use it to compare your eye health over every eye exam.
Automated Refraction System
An automated refraction system is fully automated and is a fast, accurate, and a patient-friendly way to check vision health.
It compares a patient's vision in three ways:
- Without correction
- By using your previous prescription
- By using your new prescription with the touch of a button
An automated refraction system helps us compare prescriptions and to readily change your prescription so you can see better, sooner.
Computerized Eye Chart
The days of looking down the room to a projected eye chart are over. We use a new computer eye chart that displays letters with clarity and better accuracy. It helps to demonstrate different eye conditions and decipher eyeglass and contact lens options.
We perform quick and painless glaucoma testing during your regular eye exam. This disease causes damage to the optic nerve and can lead to blindness. Catching it as early as possible is best for your eye health.
Ocular Disease and Injury
Injuries to the eye and infections cause serious damage to a person’s eyesight. Our optometry clinic diagnoses and treats these issues. We also provide referrals when needed.
- Dry eye treatment
- Contact lenses
