Primary Eye Care
Primary eye care includes a comprehensive eye health and vision examination. The eye exam is designed to detect a wide variety of problems that can affect visual function and ocular comfort. Tests for eye health disorders are also performed. The American Optometric Association recommends that everyone have periodic comprehensive eye examinations to maintain good vision and ocular health.
At Miller Vision Center, we incorporate computerized technology to assist with the determination of spectacle prescriptions as well as to test for ocular disease. This includes tests for glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration. We also look for ocular effects of general health disorders such as diabetes and high blood pressure, as well as effects from medications. Computerized instruments are used to supplement rather than replace personalized care.
Pediatric Eye Exams
Vision is the ability of the brain to extract, process, and act on information presented to the eye. Many vision problems can be corrected more easily with early diagnosis and treatment. Reports have estimated that 25% of students in grades K-6 have vision related problems which may contribute to poor school performance. Every examination we provide for children, regardless of age, has these thoughts in mind. Although young children may not be able to read an eye chart, specialized procedures have been developed to measure the vision of children of almost any age.
At Miller Vision Center, we provide complete contact lens care. Contact lenses are medical devices. They need to fit properly and be cared for correctly to maintain good vision and ocular health. After an eye examination, we evaluate your eyes to determine which type of contact lens will best suit your individual needs. We prescribe all major brands of hard and soft lenses. Additionally, we prescribe custom designed contact lenses for special needs or eye problems.
- Colored contact lenses
- Bifocal Contact lenses
- Monovision Contact lenses
- Contact lenses for astigmatism
- Contact lenses to treat Keratoconus
Our contact lens staff is available to answer many of your questions. They are also available for ongoing contact lens instruction and training.
Diagnosis and Treatment of Eye Disease
At Miller Vision Center, we provide diagnosis and management of diseases that affect the human eye. Some examples include:
Dry Eye Syndrome
This condition occurs when the tear film is abnormal or something interferes with the normal flow of tears over the eye. In many cases, Dry Eye is a lifelong condition that can be managed with lubricants or medication, but the underlying cause can’t be cured.
Diabetic retinopathy is a condition in which high blood sugar levels cause abnormal blood vessels to form in the retina. These abnormal vessels leak fluid or bleed causing the retina to swell. Vision can be lost if these vessels are not detected and treated
A Cataract is a clouding of the lens of the eye. This clouding eventually leads to blurred or hazy vision. The ultimate cure for cataracts is to have cataract surgery. This is a procedure to remove the cataract lens and replace it with an implant restoring normal visual function
Macular Degeneration is a condition in which the central part of the retina (the Macula) loses normal blood circulation. These leads to a degeneration of the retinal tissue with progressive vision loss.
Glaucoma is a disorder of the eye caused by excessive ocular pressure. If the pressure in your eye gets too high, it damages the optic nerve. Without treatment, this damage eventually leads to blindness. In most cases, Glaucoma can be well managed with pressure lowering drops.
