MULTIFOCALS: Our doctors fit the latest in contact lenses for the presbyopic patient. Many patients believe that when they lose the ability to see up close they lose the freedom of wearing contact lenses. This is not always the case. Our practice has many successful 40+ year olds who continue to enjoy the freedom of contact lens wear.
RIGID GAS PERMEABLE (RGP): If you are unsatisfied with the quality of your vision or you have been told you are not a candidate for soft contact lenses, you may be a great candidate for RGP lenses.
PRE-OPERATIVE CATARACT CARE: Are you visually frustrated? Have you stopped driving because your night vision has slowly been getting worse? Are you unable to do hobbies like you once used to because your vision has diminished? Our doctors are trained to diagnose and determine when cataract surgery is appropriate for you.
POST-OPERATIVE CATARACT CARE: Once you have had cataract surgery, we are here for you to determine what glasses prescription is most appropriate for you and manage any side effects that may arise after surgery.
Diabetes and the Eye
Did you know that a yearly dilated eye exam is recommended for all those diagnosed with diabetes? Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness before the age of 65. Our doctors are trained to diagnose and manage diabetic retinopathy through various testing and observation during a dilated exam. Once diabetic retinopathy is diagnosed continued follow up is important to help maintain functional vision. Our practice works with retinal specialists in Wichita to manage the many potential side effects of diabetes and the eye.
Glaucoma is often called the "silent thief of sight" because there are no early warning signs. It's estimated that more than two million people may have the disease and not know it. We have the latest technology in glaucoma management and our doctors are trained to diagnose and manage glaucoma.
