Carbon Valley Eye Care Services: Prioritizing Your Eye Health

Eye Exams – Comprehensive Assessments for Healthy Vision

Regular eye exams play a crucial role in maintaining optimal eye health. At Carbon Valley Eye Care, our professionals provide thorough examinations to detect any vision concerns and create personalized plans to address them. Our eye exams include:

  • Comprehensive Eye Exams: Our optometrists assess your visual acuity, eye muscle coordination, and overall eye health. We also check for any signs of eye diseases or vision problems that may require corrective measures.
  • Contact Lens Exams: For those considering contact lenses, we offer specialized exams to determine the most suitable lens type and fit for your eyes. We also provide instructions on proper lens care and handling.
  • Dilated Eye Exams: We can frequently avoid dilation thanks to our advanced retina imaging technology. This technology allows for a more detailed assessment of the retina and optic nerve. This is particularly important for detecting conditions like glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration. In some cases, dilation is still necessary, and we will use it to ensure you receive nothing but the most comprehensive care for your eyes.
  • Pediatric Eye Exams: Our team is experienced in working with young patients. We provide specialized eye exams for children to detect any early signs of vision problems or eye diseases.

Dry eye syndrome can cause discomfort and negatively impact your daily life. At Carbon Valley Eye Care, our team develops personalized treatment plans to address the root cause of your dry eye symptoms. Our dry eye treatment options include:

  • Artificial Tears: We recommend high-quality eye drops to alleviate dry eye symptoms and provide instant relief.
  • Punctal Plugs: These small devices are inserted into the tear ducts to block drainage and help maintain tear film on the eye's surface.
  • Prescription Medications: In more severe cases, our optometrists may prescribe medications to reduce inflammation and increase tear production.
  • Mibo Flow: In cases where the root cause is severe Meibomian Gland Disease, we can perform in-office treatments to help you make more of your own natural tears again.
