Comprehensive Eye Examinations

Dr. Charlene Haynes uses the latest technology to deliver comprehensive eye examinations above and beyond the standard expectations of the Optometry Board. With each comprehensive eye examination she conducts a detailed evaluation of the health of your eyes, thorough vision testing, and advanced prescription assessment.

During your eye health exam you will experience a variety of tests. Our most recent addition is the Cirrus OCT which is a rare instrument among most routine eye exams. This instrument is able to detect macular degeneration disease and determine the overall health of the optic nerve. A Visual Field Screening will also be performed to check your peripheral vision. Next you will have your retinal photographs taken digitally with our Optomap. If you are a contact lens wearer we will map the surface of your cornea with our Corneal Topographer as well as measure the thickness of your cornea using our Pachymeter. A complete slit lamp examination will evaluate all the structures in the front of the eye and a dilation will be performed to view the back part of your eye for any retinal abnormalities. Once Dr. Haynes has completed your refraction – yielding your prescription – she will review all results from the above mentioned tests.

It is important to have a comprehensive eye exam every 12 months. Good visual acuity does not ensure a healthy eye.

Getting your prescription checked by our doctor is the best way to keep your eyewear current and your eyes in good health. Eye diseases such as glaucoma display no symptoms until full onset has occurred. Glaucoma is a disease that can be prevented through detection, maintenance and proper eye care. In addition, prescription changes do not necessarily reveal themselves through secondary symptoms. Changes in the amount of myopia (near-sightedness) or hyperopia (far-sightedness) occurring can be masked by the eye muscles straining to accommodate for the change. This does not always reveal itself by way of headaches or noticeable eye strain.

Lasik Eye Surgery

If you are interested in having Lasik Eye Surgery please let our staff know. Dr. Haynes co-manages the procedure and we have had success after success! Her conservative approach ensures that only the best candidates proceed with any type of eye surgery with only the most experienced surgeons. During your eye exam be sure to mention your interest in Lasik as there are some extra measurements and tests that need to be performed. If it has been over 12 months since your last comprehensive eye exam or if you are experiencing changes in your vision, contact us today!
