Our Eye Care Services:
Comprehensive Eye Exams
We use advanced technology for our comprehensive eye exams that will determine your prescription and detect early signs of eye disease. Detecting abnormalities before symptoms appear is crucial for maintaining healthy eyes and clear eyesight throughout your lifetime. The AOA recommends that everyone receive a complete eye exam every one to two years, based on age, risk factors, and overall health.
Visual Field Testing
Our practice offers Visual Field Testing, a painless test that measures how much side vision you have. Each eye is tested separately, and the entire test takes 2-10 minutes. The test is carried out by a computerized instrument called a Matrix Visual Field Analyzer.
Pediatric Eye Exams
At Advanced Eye Care Services, we specialize in pediatric eye exams. Your baby’s visual system develops during the first few months of life, as they learn to focus, move their eyes, and use them together. These skills form the foundation for important motor development milestones like crawling, walking, and hand-eye coordination. Monitor your baby’s development and schedule a comprehensive infant eye exam at 6 months to give them the best start in life.
We can help manage myopia and reduce your child’s risk of future eye diseases, like macular degeneration, glaucoma, and retinal detachment. Our skilled optometrists offer treatments to slow down or stop myopia progression to keep your child’s vision healthy in the long run.
Cataracts, a common eye disorder, result in clouding of the lens, causing blurred vision. During cataract surgery, the natural lens is removed and replaced with a synthetic lens to restore transparency. Advanced Eye Care Services offers pre and post-operative co-management services for cataract surgery.
Glaucoma tests check for increased eye pressure, a key symptom of the disease. But keep in mind that only a comprehensive eye exam can confirm a glaucoma diagnosis. One test is called a tonometer which gently touches the eye. However, a detailed examination of the retina and optic nerve is needed to truly diagnose glaucoma. Regular eye exams are essential to catch the disease early.
Macular Degeneration Treatment
We offer treatment options for macular degeneration to slow down the progression of the disease or improve vision. For dry macular degeneration, we provide routine eye exams and prescribe high-dose zinc and antioxidants. For wet macular degeneration, options include laser surgery, light-activated dyes, and injectable medications. Our caring optometrists will work with you to find the best treatment plan for your needs.
Low vision can make daily tasks like reading and driving very difficult, often leading to frustration and even depression. Our practice is dedicated to helping visually impaired individuals get the most out of their remaining sight. Our optometrists can also evaluate the degree and type of vision loss you have and prescribe low vision aids to help you continue living independently.
Dry Eye Treatment
Dry eye syndrome can lead to corneal damage if left untreated. At Advanced Eye Care Services, we offer relief from your dry eye symptoms by developing a custom treatment plan to address the root cause of the issue.

We offer Latisse™, a treatment that can enhance the length and appearance of your eyelashes. This revolutionary eyelash treatment is believed to grow lashes by increasing the length and number of lashes in the growth phase. As a daily solution applied to the base of your upper lashes, full results can be seen after 16 weeks.
LASIK is a popular and effective refractive surgery option. It uses a laser to reshape the cornea, which can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. At Advanced Eye Care Services, we offer preoperative evaluation and post-operative care to ensure you receive the best possible outcome.
Refractive Surgery Co-Management
Our optometrists can evaluate your eyes to see if you're a suitable candidate for LASIK, PRK, or Cataract Refractive Technology. We offer pre-operative evaluations that include counseling on refractive surgery options, eye history and medical evaluations, and current refraction status. If the decision is made to proceed with surgery, our doctors will provide post-operative management. Additional needs like reading glasses or enhancement laser procedures can also be evaluated.
Contact Lens Exams and Fittings
Our contact lens specialists use advanced technology to fit you with comfortable contact lenses that provide excellent vision. We offer a wide range of options, including contacts for astigmatism and bifocals. We often recommend daily disposable lenses for their convenience and reduced risk of eye infections.
