Comprehensive Eye exams

 We feel that vision is a very precious gift.  In order to keep your eyes healthy

  and seeing as well as possible, the American Optometric Association

  recommends adults under the age of 60 have a comprehensive eye exam

  at least every 2 years.  After age 60 a yearly eye exam is recommended.

 Children should have an eye exam before they start school and then at least

 every 2 years following. 








Contact Lens Fitting
Getting started right with your contact lenses involves going to a

doctor who provides full-service eye care.  This includes a

thorough eye examination, an evaluation of your suitability

for contact lens wear,  the lenses, necessary care kits,

individual instructions for wear and care, and follow-up

visits over a specified time.  Contact lens wearers should have

an eye exam yearly.



Laser Vision Correction

 Not everyone is a good candidate for LASIK surgery.  But if you are

  LASIK can result in a life-changing  improvement in your vision. 

  However,  having LASIK does not mean you will never need eyeglasses again,

 but it can greatly reduce your dependency on them.

 We are an affiliate of                                                                        the leaders in 

LASIK surgery in our area.  Call  our office today to schedule an exam  

if you are interested in LASIK.



Medical Eye Disease Treatment

 At Gillin Eye Care, we treat a wide-variety of eye conditions such as

 styes, pinkeye, dry eyes and allergies, glaucoma and remove foreign

 objects from the eye.  We can also diagnose more serious problems like

 cataracts, macular degeneration and diabetic eye disease and co-

 ordinate treatment of these conditions with a specialist, if needed.

We provide pre and post-surgical management for LASIK and cataracts.


 

 Low Vision Rehabilitation

A wide variety of low vision treatment options are available to help

patients with vision impairments live and work more effectively,

efficiently, and safely.  The most commonly prescribed devices are:

SPECTACLE-MOUNTED MAGNIFIERS- a high-powered

magnifying lens is mounted in a pair of eyeglasses.  This allows use

of both hands to complete a close-up task, such as reading.

HAND-HELD OR SPECTACLE-MOUNTED TELESCOPE- these

miniature telescopes are useful for seeing at distance, such as

across the room to watch television, and can also be modified

for near.

HAND-HELD AND STAND MAGNIFIERS- these are convenient for

short-term reading of things like labels and recipes.  Both

types can be equipped with lights.

VIDEO MAGNIFICATION- closed-circuit TV systems enlarge reading

material on a video display.  Image brightness, size, contrast,

and foreground/background color can be customized.

There are numerous other products to assist those with a

vision impairment such as large-print books, magazines,

newspapers, books-on-tape, talking wristwatches, self-

threading needles, and more!
