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.
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:
- 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
miniature telescopes are useful for seeing at distance, such as
across the room to watch television, and can also be modified
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.
- 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!
