Services We Offer
Routine eye exams are important for helping us monitor your eye health as well as any changes in your vision. Regular eye exams can help reveal the development of a health-related issue include diabetes. During the exam, Dr. Larson will check the fluid pressure in your eyes, any signs of glaucoma, and determine your current prescription. We encourage you to visit our office for regular exams to ensure you maintain your best eye health.
If you are in need of prescription glasses or contacts, we have an extensive selection of frames and lens to choose from. Our practice features an array of optical services and our opticians will work with you to find the eyewear that fits your needs, budget, and style.
This is a disease that gradually affects the optic nerve. As the pressure in the eye increases, it causes the loss of fibers in the optic nerve. The symptoms of glaucoma are painless and subtle at first, but gradually get worse. Some common symptoms of glaucoma are experiencing blurry vision, loss of peripheral vision, and an inability for your eyes to adjust to darkened rooms.
When treated early, we can help prevent complete vision loss. Dr. Larson and her team will work with you to determine which treatment best fits your needs and can help preserve your vision. We also provide referrals to outside specialists to ensure you receive the care you deserve.
A cataract causes blurry vision and prevents light from passing through to the retina. This clouding of the lens usually occurs as people age. There are many factors that can contribute to cataracts forming, including ultraviolet light exposure, eye injuries, kidney disease, smoking, and certain medications.
We will check for signs of cataracts during your routine exams. To prevent any vision impairment, it is important to diagnosis cataracts early.
LASIK and Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) procedures are used to correct a range of common vision problems including astigmatism, hyperopia, and myopia. Both of these procedures have become extremely popular and provide an alternative to wearing contacts and eyeglasses. The procedure takes a very short amount of time and patients have less discomfort with the new technology.
If you are a candidate for refractive surgery, we will refer you to a highly experienced refractive surgeon. To ensure you receive the highest quality of personalized care, we offer pre- and post-operative care. This ensures your comfort and convenience of working with a team who already knows you and your goals.
We are proud to utilize modern technology, including the Optos Retinal Imaging system, in our practice. This instrument is used to examine the back of the eye without dilation. It provides us with a great baseline of information, and is a useful tool for monitoring diabetes and other health conditions. In addition, it provides our patients with the opportunity to see what their own eyes look like, and understand the condition of their eyes.
