How we can help you
Optometrists are usually the doctors responsible for performing comprehensive
eye exams, which checks your vision quality and can diagnose eye diseases.
“We can look for the source of your eye problem and recommend or
prescribe different solutions to help you see better or help your eyes
feel more comfortable,” says Dr. Bleazard.
“Different problems need different treatments, like if you have dry
eyes, we can recommend eye drops, punctual plugs, or heating solutions,”
says Dr. Bleazard.
If you struggle with blurriness, our optometrist can prescribe glasses
or contact lenses to correct your vision, or we could examine your eyes
to find the source of your blurriness.
If you have an eye disease, like glaucoma, our optometrists can help manage
it to prevent harm to your vision. “Scheduling regular comprehensive
exams is key to staying ahead of any eye disease,” says Dr. Walker.
