Dry Eye

Dry eye syndrome arises when your eyes fail to produce enough tears or the tears are not of the right quality to keep them healthy and comfortable. Symptoms can vary from stinging or burning sensations to periods of excessive tearing following stress episodes, and more.

Our team of professionals recognizes the discomfort associated with this condition. That’s why we are devoted to providing comprehensive care tailored to your specific needs. Our process begins with an exhaustive eye examination to evaluate your eye health and pinpoint potential complications. The examination process encompasses:

Our examination process includes:

 

  • Assessment of Corneal Curvature: This helps us comprehend the shape and size of your eye, which is vital in determining the intensity of dry eye syndrome and devising suitable treatment plans.
  • Determination of Pupil Size: By gauging your pupil size, we gain insights into how your eyes respond to light and whether there are any underlying problems contributing to dry eye syndrome.
  • Evaluation of Tear Film: The health of your tear film is crucial in managing dry eye syndrome. We assess its stability and quality to ensure it provides adequate moisture and protection to your eyes.

 

At Art of Optiks, we offer a spectrum of treatment options for dry eye syndrome. These range from prescription eye drops and lifestyle modifications to, in some cases, minor surgical procedures. We aim to deliver an outstanding patient experience with a focus on your comfort and satisfaction. Our team is always on hand to answer any queries and guide you on your path to improved eye health.

Astigmatism

Astigmatism is a prevalent eye condition distinguished by an irregularly shaped cornea or lens. This irregularity inhibits light from focusing correctly on the retina, leading to blurred or distorted vision at all distances, eye discomfort, and potentially headaches.

At Art of Optiks, we employ cutting-edge diagnostic tools to accurately identify and evaluate astigmatism. Our comprehensive eye examinations include:

 

  • Refraction Test: This test aids us in determining your eye’s refractive error and the appropriate prescription to rectify it.
  • Keratometry: This procedure enables us to measure the curvature of your cornea and pinpoint any irregularities contributing to astigmatism.
  • Corneal Topography: For more intricate cases, we use this imaging technique to map the surface of your cornea, gaining a detailed understanding of its shape and power.

 

Depending on these tests’ outcomes, we offer a variety of treatment options tailored to your specific needs and lifestyle. These can range from prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses to Ortho-K lenses, or even refractive surgery. Experience the personalized approach to astigmatism management at Art of Optiks.

Contact Lens Fitting

Our team of professionals prioritizes your comfort by matching you with contact lenses tailored to your unique eye characteristics. We conduct a thorough eye examination before the fitting process to ensure good eye health and identify any potential challenges. During this procedure, our eye doctors guide you through lens application, evaluate comfort, and customize the lens type to fit your lifestyle. They take detailed measurements of your eyes to ensure that the lens angles align flawlessly with your eye contours. These measurements include:

 

  • Assessment of Corneal Curvature
  • Determination of Pupil Size
  • Evaluation of Tear Film

 

Our main goal is to provide an outstanding contact lens experience, ensuring a precise and comfortable fit. We offer a wide range of contact lens types, materials, sizes, and colors to cater to our patients’ diverse preferences. Please feel free to ask any questions during your fitting session. If certain contact lens brands appeal to you, we are more than happy to accommodate your choices. Your satisfaction and visual health remain our top priorities at Art of Optiks.

Learning to Use Contacts

At Art of Optiks, we strongly advocate for a fitting process, especially for those new to contact lenses. This guarantees the accuracy of your prescription and the fit of your lenses. Some may find a single session sufficient, while others might require multiple appointments for optimal comfort and vision clarity. You can expect the following to be covered during your appointment:

 

  • Correct Lens Cleaning Methods
  • Precise Techniques for Insertion and Removal
  • General Usage Guidelines
  • Recognition of Potential Abnormal Symptoms
  • Suitable Cleaning Solutions
  • Use of Rewetting Drops

 


Our doctors will provide customized care instructions based on your specific lens needs.

 

Follow-Up Exams

At Art of Optiks, we believe that follow-up exams are a vital part of your eye care routine. These exams allow us to monitor the health of your eyes over time and ensure that your prescription remains accurate.

 

During a follow-up exam, our eye doctors will assess your vision, check for any changes in your eye health, and make necessary adjustments to your prescription. If you wear glasses or contact lenses, we’ll also verify that they still provide you with optimal vision correction.

 

These exams also give us an opportunity to detect any potential eye diseases at an early stage when they’re generally easier to manage. Regular follow-ups can significantly contribute to maintaining your overall eye health. We recommend scheduling follow-up exams at least once a year, or more frequently if suggested by your eye doctor. By doing so, you’re taking an active role in preserving your vision and eye health.
