Complete Eye Exams
Regular eye exams are an important part of maintaining good health. Eye exams can detect early signs of eye diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration, as well as hypertension and even diabetes. For school-aged children, eye exams can detect poor vision, which often hinders their ability to learn and do well in school.
Glaucoma affects an estimated 3 million Americans, with 120,000 blind due to the condition. While glaucoma ranks as a leading cause of blindness, most glaucoma patients may do well if detected early. The doctors at Family Vision Care are well trained in detecting and treating glaucoma.
Dyslexia is one of several distinct learning disabilities. It is a specific language-based disorder of constitutional origin characterized by difficulties in single word decoding, usually reflecting insufficient phonological processing abilities. These difficulties in single word decoding are often unexpected in relation to age and other cognitive and academic abilities; they are not the result of generalized developmental disability or sensory impairment. Dyslexia is manifested by variable difficulty with different forms of language, often including problems reading, as well as conspicuous problems with acquiring proficiency in writing and spelling. Dr. Fife has been experienced in dyslexia testing since 1994.
LASIK Eye Evaluation
LASIK is a surgical procedure intended to reduce a person’s dependency on glasses or contact lenses. The doctors at Family Vision Care take careful measurements of your eyes to determine if patients are good candidates for refractive surgery. If so, patients then are referred to a reputable ophthalmic surgeon for LASIK.
