Are you ready to add a new option to your eyecare toolbox? For many people, contacts are a functional and comfortable eyecare alternative that complement their existing prescription eyewear. At Dr Scott and Associates, our optometrists are equipped to fit all types of soft contact lenses including contacts for astigmatism (oval shaped cornea), myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and presbyopia (the loss of the ability to see up close).
We also offer colors! Color contacts can be fun and can be fit on both light and dark colored eyes.
State of the art computerized testing assists our doctors to achieve your best vision. Our office is entirely digital and uses state of the art Topcon Auto-refractors, auto-keratometers, and phoropters. We also use digital acuity charts, Welch Allyn and Keeler ophthalmoscopes and retinoscopes.
Every diabetic needs to have their eyes thoroughly evaluated once a year. Dilation (eye drops to enlarge the pupils) and/or retinal imaging (Optomap) are essential to properly view the retina (back of the eye) and maintain eye health. Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics are at increased risk for vision loss due to diabetic retinopathy (bleeding in the back of the eye), cataracts, and glaucoma.
Many medical plans will include diabetic medical eye examinations as part of their coverage.
We proudly start seeing children as young as 5 years old. If your child does not know their letters, no worries! We can use children’s figures and show images of items such as a “horse”, “hand”, “bird”, “house” and “telephone”. We also include colors, numbers, and rotating “E”s. There are many techniques to check your child’s vision before they are able to communicate or read letters.
Wow! That’s what all our patients say when they see their own OptoMap.
What is OptoMap? Simply, OptoMap is a wide-angle digital photograph of the back of your eye. It takes only a few seconds to perform, and it’s painless! Your OptoMap can be used as a screening for eye problems in the retina, and becomes part of your digital record. The optometrist will discuss your OptoMap photos with you. It can also be used as a comparison in future eye evaluations. Some vision and medical insurances now cover the cost of Optomap digital imaging.
Metal fragments, fiberglass, flying debris, stuck contacts! It happens.
Corneal and conjunctival foreign bodies can normally be removed during an office visit (sorry, we do not accept worker’s compensation insurance).
Sudden loss of vision, flashes of light, floaters, red eyes, painful eyes, corneal abrasions, foreign bodies, and eye injuries are just a few of the many eye emergencies that our doctors can evaluate and treat.
Please call our office for an emergency office visit appointment and bring a driver with you.
