Comprehensive Eye Examinations
An eye examination in our office involves careful assessment of your vision correction needs, focusing and eye alignment performance as well as evaluating the health of the eye.
Often patients come to us because they have difficulty seeing distance or near objects. After determining the prescription that best corrects your vision, our doctors will discuss with you options such as glasses, contact lenses, or refractive surgery which are best suited to meet the needs of your daily activities.
Problems with focusing and eye alignment are often overlooked as sources of headaches and eyestrain. This is especially true for those who do a great deal of computer and near work. A careful assessment of your focusing and eye alignment allows us to prescribe lenses which help you work more efficiently with fewer headaches and eyestrain.
Most importantly our doctors will assess your eye health. This includes looking for glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration and other potentially sight-stealing disorders. Many eye conditions do not effect your vision initially and can only be found with consistent eye health evaluation. Some systemic health problems like diabetes and hypertension as well as many medications can have effects on the eye which should be monitored to prevent sight-threatening complications.

Advancements in technology now make it possible for nearly anyone who wants to wear contact lenses to be successful. If you have thought that you could not wear contact lenses because of astigmatism, allergies, dry eyes or bifocals, our office welcomes the opportunity of helping you become a successful contact lens wearer.
Many patients are concerned about whether contact lenses will work for them and are afraid that they may invest a lot of money in lenses that do not work. Our Contact Lens Success Program insures that everyone who wishes can try contact lenses with a minimum risk and expense.
Our lenses are warranted so that if you decide not to stay with contact lenses or we cannot achieve satisfactory fit or vision, the lenses can be returned during the warranty period and you pay nothing for them. The warranty also allows us to make adjustments so that we achieve the best contact lens fit, vision, and eye health.
If you would like to be free from glasses for cosmetic reasons, to enjoy recreational activities, or simply for special occasions, call us at 861-0950 to schedule an appointment or send e-mail to email@example.com and begin seeing clearly without glasses.
Frames and Lenses
Choosing eyeglasses that look fashionable and meet your vision requirements can be a difficult decision. Our opticians are eager to help you choose frames and lenses which look nice, give you clear comfortable vision and fit within your budget.
Our frames are all made of high quality materials and are covered by the same warranty regardless of frame cost or manufacturer. Our frames range in price from $50 to over $200. We carry over 800 frame styles for women, men, and children including many lightweight titanium and stainless steel frames. If you do not see something that suits you, we encourage you to shop around to other offices. If you see something at another office let us know and often we can get it for you at prices usually less than our competitors.
Determining what lens to use for your new glasses is critical to helping you look and see your best. Our opticians will consider your daily, work and recreation activities and recommend the lens material and treatments which will best meet your needs.
Our doctors are always available to treat eye emergencies such as infections, eye pain, foreign matter in the eye or sudden vision loss. During normal office hours, one of our doctors will be happy to treat your eye condition. If your emergency occurs after hours, simpy call our office at 614-861-0950 and you will be given directions on how to page one of our doctors who is on call 24 hours. Most office visits are covered under major medical insurance plans.
Laser Vision Correction
Laser Vision Correction is now a viable option for anyone wanting to reduce their dependence on glasses or contact lenses. Laser light reshapes the cornea, the clear front portion of the eye to allow light to focus more clearly on the back of the eye. Our doctors will discuss with you whether or not you are a good candidate for laser vision correction as well as the possible risks and benefits involved. Most patients over 18 years of age, in good general health, and with no diseases such as cataracts or glaucoma are candidates. Laser vision correction can treat a very broad range of nearsightedness, astigmatism and farsigntedness. In most cases, even patients with the most severe degrees of nearsightedness, astigmatism and farsightedness can be treated.
If you decide to have laser vision correction, our doctors work with the finest surgeons in central Ohio. Post-operative follow up visits are done in our office usually at 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year after the procedure. If you have questions about the procedure or cost, would like to schedule a consultation, or would like to attend a free patient seminar please call the office at (614) 861-0950 and speak with our laser vision coordinator or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Children's Vision and Vision Therapy
Your child's vision plays a critical role in his or her academic success. Our doctors and staff want to care for your child's vision. We can assess the vision and eye health needs of children as young as six months of age. We recommend a child's first visit take place from three to five years of age. After the initial visit we can determine how frequently your child should be seen to insure good vision and eye health.
Low Vision and Vision Rehabilitation
Diseases such as macular degeneration, diabetes and glaucoma can limit a person's vision resulting in an inability to read books, mail and newspapers, signing checks and perform other activities of daily living. This can lead to a loss of independence.
If you answer yes to any of the following questions you or your loved one may benefit from a low vision evaluation.
Avoid work or activities you once enjoyed because of your vision?
Have difficulty traveling alone in unfamiliar places?
Need help with reading mail, writing checks, or reading your medication bottles?
Have trouble with daily living activities such as cooking, eating or using the telephone?
