At Consulting Ophthalmologists P.C., our eye care providers provide a full range of services to meet your eye care needs. This includes glasses and contact lenses as well as screening and treatment of common eye conditions.
Many people take their vision for granted and only visit an eye doctor when problems occur. We recommend a complete eye exam on a regular basis as a part of your routine medical care. The frequency will depend on your age, health, ethnicity, and family history. Please notify us if changes in your vision or other symptoms occur between visits, as early detection and treatment of problems can help prevent vision loss.
Your eye examination will consist of a thorough evaluation of your vision and ocular health. This usually includes refraction (an evaluation of your need for glasses or contact lenses) and a complete dilated eye exam. We will screen for common conditions such as dry eye, cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration and retinal diseases such as those associated with diabetes and high blood pressure. A review of your medical history and symptoms will be considered along with the findings of your eye examination. We will discuss our findings with you, and communicate with your primary care physician or other doctors as needed.
A comprehensive eye evaluation will usually take longer than one hour, so be sure to allow enough time for your visit. If you have special needs regarding scheduling, time and/or transportation, please discuss your needs with our staff.
