Vision & Medical Services
Allendale Eye Care provides treatment, consultation and referrals for these common vision correction surgeries and procedures.
Vision correction is a general term used to describe a variety of optometric techniques for correcting less-than-perfect vision. For your convenience, we have included a brief description of some of the most common vision correction procedures offered at Allendale Eye Care. For more specific information about lenses and frames or contacts, please visit their respective pages.
LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) is a surgical procedure that uses a laser beam to reshape the cornea. Patients who are nearsighted and/or astigmatic may benefit from this type of procedure.
While millions of patients have seen successful results from LASIK, the procedure is not right for everyone. Your optometrist will need to thoroughly examine your eyes to determine which type of vision correction best fits your needs. Our specialized diagnostic testing can measure your corneal thickness to determine if you would be a good candidate.
Medical Diagnosis and Low Vision Care
Low vision is a general term that refers to a partial loss of vision that cannot be adequately corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses, medications or surgery. Common causes of low vision include cataracts, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, inherited retinal degenerative diseases, glaucoma and optic nerve atrophy. Our doctors are equipped and trained to diagnose and provide routine care for these disorders. They are diagnostic & therapeutic certified to co-manage with a surgeon, if surgical intervention is required. We co-manage with the top specialists in the area and ensure that you are referred to the best surgeon to meet your needs.
Low vision therapy typically includes an evaluation of the patient’s visual abilities, prescription of low vision devices and training in their use. The goal is to maximize the use of the patient’s available vision for reading, writing, hobbies and work-related tasks such as working at a computer.
Allendale Eye Care has the experience and equipment necessary to provide treatment, consultation and referrals for the vision correction procedures and surgeries detailed above at our office.
