Primary Eye Care


Primary Eye CarePRIMARY  EYE  CARE  includes a comprehensive vision and eye health examination.   This examination is designed to detect a wide range of problems affecting vision function, such as blurred vision or eye discomfort.

 

Evaluations for eye health disorders are also performed. The American Optometric Association recommends that all people should have a periodic, comprehensive eye examination every one to two years depending on ones particular needs.

 

Here at our office we incorporate computerized technology to assist the evaluation of spectacle prescriptions, peripheral vision, intraocular pressure, and eye health. Computerized examination instruments are used to supplement rather than replace personalized care. Examinations include tests for glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and the ocular effects of many general health disorders such as diabetes and high blood pressure, as well as effects of medications. A dilated pupil examination allows us to provide the best assessment of eye health.  It is recommended for all new patients and on a scheduled basis thereafter.

 

 

 

 

OCTDigital Imaging

 

Optical Coherence Tomography:  Montesano Vision Center is pleased to offer the latest high-speed, high-resolution OCT technology for retinal and corneal mapping. This technology uses light beams to scan and map the interior structures of the eye, providing detailed images for Dr. Wills to evaluate.  It is particularly helpful for examining and monitoring macular degeneration and glaucoma.

 

Digital Fundus Photography:  Our retinal camera provides a digital picture of the retina, optic nerve, and macula.  This picture can serve as a baseline measurement for future comparison of the general health of the back of the eye.
