Routine Care

Our Services

More Than a Prescription

During a comprehensive eye exam, our team of eye doctors in Neptune, Red Bank, and Brick do much more than just determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses. They also check your eyes for common eye diseases and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health.

WHAT CAN HAPPEN IF YOU DON’T TAKE ROUTINE CARE SERIOUSLY?

Treatable diseases like Glaucoma and Diabetes, if ignored, can cause permanent vision loss. Our team of experts offer comprehensive exams that are extremely thorough—allowing for accurate diagnosis, treatment, and/or monitoring of each patients’ individual condition. Staying current with your eye exams will not only help prevent serious eye conditions in the future, but can also reveal health problems that may otherwise go unnoticed.

Refractive Errors FAQ

What is Nearsightedness (myopia)?

When the eyeball is too long, light rays focus in front of, rather than on, the retina. Under these circumstances, near objects are perceived clearly, but distant objects are not.

What is Farsightedness (hyperopia)?

When the eyeball is too short, light rays entering the eye focus behind the retina. Distant objects are seen clearly but near objects are not.

What is Astigmatism?

Vision becomes distorted when the surface of the cornea has an uneven curvature; sometimes it is the eye’s lens that is irregularly shaped. This type of irregularity causes light to focus on more than one spot on the retina at the back of the eye, causing blurred vision.

What is Presbyopia?

Presbyopia is the gradual loss of your eyes’ ability to focus on nearby objects. This lack of accommodation is a natural, often annoying occurrence during the aging process. Presbyopia usually becomes noticeable in your early to mid-40s and continues to worsen until around age 65. You may notice a feeling of eyestrain or headaches after reading or doing close-up work for an extended period of time.

Testing during your routine care exam with one of our team members will confirm if you are indeed experiencing the effects of presbyopia. You can correct the condition with eyeglasses or contact lenses. It may also be addressed during cataract surgery.

Treatment Options for Refractive Errors:

  • Glasses
  • Contacts
  • Laser Vision Correction

Glasses and or contacts are great options for correcting refractive errors. In some cases, however, patients may be contact lens intolerant or may simply elect to be less dependent on their glasses. For those who fit the criteria, Laser Vision Correction is an option.

What is Laser Vision Correction?

Laser Vision Correction is a surgical treatment for nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism that reshapes the cornea to improve visual focus. This advanced treatment is safe, quick, and precise. Click here to learn more about Laser Vision Correction.
