Comprehensive Eye Care
At Arnold Family Eye Care we provide comprehensive eye care to patients of all ages from toddlers to seniors. We perform routine exams as well as medical care of any eye problem you might experience.
Your exam typically includes:
- visual acuity testing to check your vision
- refraction for your glasses prescription
- microscopic examination of the eye to assess the health of your eyes
Our office is pleased to carry a wide variety of contact lenses which incorporate the latest technology to fit your individual visual needs. These include lenses which may correct for nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and/or presbyopia. See our Contact Lenses page for more details.
When it comes to glasses, our optical shop carries a wide selection of the latest designers and brands to keep you in style. We also feature a great selection of more traditional frames. See our Optical Shop page for more details.
Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT)
Corneal refractive therapy uses gas permeable contact lenses that temporarily reshape the cornea to reduce refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. This method can be used as an alternative to eyeglasses or refractive surgery for those who prefer not to wear contact lenses during the day.
A cataract is the term given to the clouding or loss of clarity occurring in the natural lens. A cataract can develop in one or both eyes. This may be the result of aging, trauma, or related to certain diseases or medications.
The most common symptom of a cataract is blurred vision. Some patients describe their vision as though they were looking through a cloudy window. You may also experience difficulty with glare in bright sunlight or oncoming car headlights at night.
When your cataract progresses to the point where it interferes with your daily activities, you may need surgical removal of the cataract to restore your vision. We work closely with a team of surgeons to help you get the best result from your surgery.
Diabetic Eye Exam
Diabetes can affect your vision by causing a variety of eye diseases such as cataracts or diabetic retinopathy. In order to minimize the risk of developing diabetic eye disease, it is important that diabetics maximize control of both their blood glucose and blood pressure.
The American Diabetes Association and the American Academy of Clinical Endocrinologists recommend that that an eye exam should be performed at least once a year in order to ensure early detection of any serious conditions. Early detection is the strongest protection against diabetic eye diseases, as many treatments are more effective in the early stages of the disease.
