Nothing is more important to us than your overall eye health. We offer comprehensive eye examinations that allow us to pinpoint any changes in your vision, then correct them with glasses, contacts, or a combination of both. We are able to detect or treat eye health and refractive conditions such as infections, ocular allergies, dry eye, glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and computer vision syndrome.
We have a full service optical and contact lens dispensary. Our staff has years of experience helping patients pick the right designs, materials, and coatings in order to optimize the vision through their glasses. These include a wide selection of lens designs and features including but not limited to; progressives or bifocal lens designs, anti-reflective, scratch resistant and UV coatings, photochromic lenses such as Transitions, polycarbonate, trivex, and high index materials, and many others.
Sports glasses are eyeglasses specially designed to: 1) fit securely and comfortably during physical activity, 2) keep your eyes safe, and 3) enhance your vision to give you an extra performance “edge” in the sports you love. In most sports, vision drives performance. So to excel during competition, you should make sure your eyesight is in top shape. Even if you have 20/20 vision, the right sports eyewear can reduce glare and enhance contrast to help you see even better and react faster.
Not long ago, athletes rarely wore eyewear specifically designed to protect their eyes during sports, and sports-related eye injuries were widespread. Today, sports eyewear can be spotted on almost anyone who picks up a ball, bat, racquet, or stick — whether they play in the major leagues or the Little League...
Eye protection is essential for anyone using a firearm, whether at a shooting range or in a forest or field. All firearms have a certain amount of recoil, and many shooting activities take place outdoors where wind, sun, and dust also can lead to eye and vision problems...
Seeing 20/20 or better isn’t the only measure of good vision. You may focus well on objects, but your vision isn’t just one skill — it’s a set of several skills, including depth perception and peripheral vision.
Vision skills are important in sports performance, whether you play golf, soccer, baseball, basketball, or racket sports. Most of what we understand about our surrounding environment is experienced through our eyes, rather than our other sensory organs.
