Comprehensive

People tend not to think about preventive care; however, many diseases affect the eye in such a way that you can see 20/20 until suddenly, one day you can’t. Comprehensive eye examination can help prevent or slow the permanent loss of vision. Drs. Heather & Sue Miller are committed to providing the most comprehensive and advanced eye care possible using the latest treatments and state of the art technology. In most cases, your pupils will be dilated. If a medical condition is discovered or suspected other tests may be done that day or scheduled for a separate day to address any issue. Recommendations will be made to maintain your vision and ocular health, so that any potential problems can be dealt with in a timely manner as to prevent possible loss of vision or life.

Medical Eye Exam

As doctors of optometry, we are trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of eye conditions, some of which may be associated with systemic diseases. We take pride in staying on the forefront of modern treatments and procedures along with utilizing cutting edge technology. If surgery is necessary, we coordinate your care with our team of partnering ophthalmologists to provide you with seamless care. In most cases, the pre- and post-op appointments can be done right on site at our office. The following are common conditions that require a medical eye examination:

1Glaucoma
Glaucoma is a slow progressive disease of the optic nerve. The optic nerve is essentially the cord that connects your eye to your brain. Glaucoma can result in blindness if left untreated. In most cases, glaucoma has no symptoms, until there is noticeable vision loss, therefore without a preventative eye examinations it may not be detected until it is too late.
2Cataracts
Behind the colored part of our eye, the iris, is a lens. Typically, through the aging process, this lens becomes cloudy. This is a cataract. Though not everyone will require cataract surgery, everyone will develop cataracts. Cataracts typically develop gradually over time resulting in vision changes. These changes may be improved upon with changes in glasses prescription. However, if the cataract does necessitate surgery, we will refer you to one of our local surgical specialists, and then see you back for your post-operative care.
3Diabetes
Diabetes causes small blood vessels to weaken and they can leak blood, water, and/or cholesterol. This occurs throughout the body to the small blood vessels in the heart, kidney, as well as to the blood vessels within the eyes. When the blood vessels within the eyes leak it is called diabetic retinopathy. As a result, new, abnormal, weak blood vessels can grow int he eye and are at a greater risk for hemorrhage. Initially, there are no symptoms of diabetic retinopathy; however, as the disease progresses vision loss can occur. The best treatment is prevention! Eye examinations are the only non-invasive way to monitor what is happening to the small blood vessels throughout the body. Since the early stages are asymptomatic, making sure you come in for a yearly diabetic eye examination is imperative.
4Dry Eye Disease
Dry eye disease is a chronic, multifactorial disease of the tears and ocular surface. Symptoms often include: gritty, sandy, foreign body sensation, tearing, burning, stinging, blurry vision, light sensitivity, as well as contact lens intolerance. Once the specific cause of your dry eye is determined we can target our treatment options to reduce your symptoms.
5AMD
Age-related macular degeneration is the leading cause of vision loss in individuals over the age of 50. It results in damage to the anatomical part of the eye called the macula, which is needed for the fine detailed part of our vision.
6Eye Emergences
All of our eye doctors are board certified to diagnose and treat diseases of the eye. Since medical eye emergencies occur at the most inconvenient times, feel comfortable knowing that we are always available. Often a trip to the emergency room is not needed as an overwhelming number of emergency room visits can be treated by an optometrist. We are here to help for any of the following situations:

PEDIATRIC

Here at Bright Eyes, we know that good vision affects a child’s learning and social functioning. School vision screening or even the vision tests in your pediatrician office are insufficient to find many potential vision problems affecting children’s eyes, which go beyond merely seeing 20/20.

Make certain your child is not being disadvantaged because of any vision issues. Bright Eyes is here to give your children the proper and dedicated eye care they need.Getting your yearly eye exam is not just for adults. Young children may not realize or be able to verbalize that there is a problem.

If you notice that one eye turns in or out or that your baby doesn’t seem to respond to visual activity, schedule an exam immediately. Otherwise you should schedule your baby’s first eye exam at 6 months of age. The next eye exam should be at 3 years and then again before entering school. School age children should have an eye exam every year because vision is the most important sense that we use to bring in information. Even if your child seems to be able to see OK, and doesn’t complain-you still need to schedule an eye exam.
