2021 is here, and it’s time to start thinking about exciting days ahead, ones where we no longer take for granted what’s truly important, and that includes healthy vision.
Where would you be without your eyes, the ultimate video camera? Eyes work so hard, day in and day out, that it can be easy to forget they need care to keep functioning at their best, including regular eye health and vision exams to help maintain dependably clear, crisp, comfortable vision.
General Eye Care
Eye Exams – Regular comprehensive eye exams delve into far more than a simple vision screening. A comprehensive eye exam involves a series of visual acuity and eye health components that your eye doctor will customize to you, based on your age and personal situation. Your Lake Eye doctor will ask about your health background and history, creating a unique profile designed to protect and maximize your eye health now and for years to come. Your eyes will be assessed for refraction errors, proper eye alignment, focusing ability and mechanical function, and for the presence of eye disease, including infection, dry eye, glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration and retinal issues. Discovering health problems early presents an opportunity to arrest these issues before they seriously – even permanently – impact vision.
Should your doctor discover any issues with your vision, he or she can provide everything necessary to help restore it to optimal
brilliance and health. From prescription lenses to the safest, most advanced surgical options, you’ll find everything your eyes need to perform beautifully, year after year.
Services for Dazzling VisionPrecision Optics – Every Lake Eye location has an on-site Precision Optics department, featuring a stunning array of fashion and
specialty frames, a full range of state-of-the-art lenses, all major contact lens brands and expert service from licensed opticians for the perfect fit.
Cataract Surgery – Our surgical team leads the region with innovative procedures such as Femto refractive laser surgery – the safest and most accurate cataract surgery system ever created – to swiftly remove cataracts. As pioneers in this leading-edge procedure, our surgeons also specialize in the world’s most advanced IOLs, including the Symfony® extended depth-of-focus lens, designed to provide seamless vision improvement at all distances.
Vision Correction – Lake Eye offers a suite of permanent vision correction surgeries that enable nearly everyone to take advantage of options to reduce or eliminate their need of prescription lenses. We offer iLASIK, the region’s most sophisticated and customized laser surgery to correct refraction errors with exceptional precision, without blades or cutting. For people with thin corneas, chronic dry eye and other issues, there’s photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), a laser surgery that corrects the shape of the cornea for clearer, brighter vision. And for people 40-50 and above, there is the exiting new breakthrough procedure, Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE), which corrects age-related near vision loss and/or severe farsightedness, providing a revolutionary choice for those who never thought vision correction surgery was a possibility.
Eyelid Surgery – Sagging, baggy or dysfunctional eyelids can limit vision, invite eye irritation and infection, and create a tired, haggard appearance. Lake Eye offers safe, gentle eyelid restoration surgery customized to widen visual range, reduce discomfort and provide a naturally refreshed look with minimal recovery and downtime. Some patients may have their eyelid surgery covered by Medicare.
Treatment of Eye Diseases & Conditions – Left untreated, problems like glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy can lead to partial or total blindness. Proper diagnosis and treatment of these diseases can arrest damage and protect vision. Lake Eye provides leading-edge medicinal and surgical treatments for these disorders, and practical lifestyle recommendations for optimal eye health. And, of course, we have everything you need to address conditions such as chronic dry eye, red eye, low vision, blepharitis and others, so you can see the world more clearly and
