Comprehensive Eye Examinations
Dr. Hamilton and Dr. Kohorst provide comprehensive vision and eye health examinations for children, adults, and seniors. Our thorough examinations include more than testing how well you see. Our doctors are able to detect and treat hundreds of conditions and diseases that affect the eyes, including diabetes, glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, dry eye treatment, allergies, headaches, infections, and pediatric vision problems.
We include testing of visual acuity and refractive error, eye muscle balance and focusing, sensory and neurological evaluation, and dilated exam of the internal structure of the eyes.
Regularly scheduled eye exams are critical to maintaining good health. In addition to testing your vision and eye health, a comprehensive exam can also detect systemic diseases such as diabetes, stroke and high blood pressure. These conditions can lead to serious health problems and can often develop and progress without symptoms, therefore early detection is very important.
Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) is the use of rigid gas-permeable contact lenses, normally worn only at night, to improve vision through the reshaping of the cornea. This method can be used as an alternative to eyeglasses, refractive surgery, or for those who prefer not to wear contact lenses during the day (for example, because lenses may become dislodged during sport.)
LASIK/Refractive Surgery Consultation
LASIK/Refractive surgery has become a very popular option for vision correction. It is currently the most technologically advanced surgical procedure to reduce or eliminate near-sightedness, far-sightedness, and astigmatism. Our optometrists provide experienced consultation to determine whether you are a candidate for surgery and offer pre and post care in our office for the most respected ophthalmologists in our community and will help you select the best surgeon.
