Comprehensive Eye Exam
Your eyes are an indicator of your overall health!
We provide primary eye care for your entire family. Regular exams are essential to maintaining your eye health and identifying problems before they start, regardless of your age or your physical health.
A comprehensive eye exam is not just determining whether of not you need glasses or contacts. Your optometrist checks the overall health of your eyes, checking for common eye diseases and making sure your eyes are working together to give you the best vision possible.
Contact Lens Fitting
Contact lens and eyeglass prescriptions are NOT the same!
Your eye care practitioner can only write your contact lens prescription after a thorough contact lens exam and fitting.
Contact lens exams include tests that are NOT part of a comprehensive eye exam. A contact lens is a medical device and should be treated as such. An ill fitting lens or a lens that’s not a good match for your eyes can lead to blurry vision, infections, abrasions or worse.
Our doctors may require one or more follow-up visits to ensure the choice of lens is working for you. Just because your eyes feel good and your vision is clear does not mean your eye health is good.
New to contacts?
Wyandotte Family EyeCare Center offers one-on-one teachings with one of our trained opticians as well as a detailed packet of information regarding your specific lens.
Don’t take your eyes for granted!
Many eye problems and diseases develop without warning or symptoms. For diseases like macular degeneration, glaucoma or retinal detachments waiting for symptoms can mean it’s too late to prevent damage.
We highly recommend that all of our patients have a digital retinal photo taken of their eyes.
Ready to toss your glasses and contacts?
Lasik is currently the most popular form of refractive surgery performed today. Lasik is a surgical procedure used to reduce or eliminate your need for glasses and/or contact lenses.
Wyandotte Family EyeCare Center will evaluate, prepare and manage your Lasik experience. We work together with some of the best doctors in the area to ensure your experience goes smoothly. There are many factors that go into determining if this procedure is right for you. If refractive surgery isn't your best option, our doctors will find a solution that is.
You can't avoid them!
A cataract is the clouding of the eye's lens. It progresses slowly for most but can begin to effect you vision as early as age 40.
We will guide you down the road of cataracts with ways to slow the progression, improve your vision and eventually manage the cataract correction.
Treatment of Eye Diseases
Don't wait until it's too late!
While diseases such as Glaucoma and Macular Degeneration are not preventable, early detection and management is necessary to ensure the best possible outcomes. Wyandotte Family EyeCare Center takes pride in our state-of-the-art equipment and knowledge in treating and managing these serious ocular diseases.
Glaucoma causes damage to the optic nerve with few or no initial symptoms. Glaucoma can be associated with higher-than-normal pressure inside the eye.
Glaucoma cannot be completely prevented but if diagnosed early, treatment can help control the condition and limit its effects. If untreated, glaucoma causes loss of your peripheral vision and eventually blindness. Factors such as age, race, family history, and previous medical conditions can all contribute to developing glaucoma.
Macular Degeneration is the deterioration of the macula (where you have your clearest 20/20 vision.) In most cases, reversing damage is not possible, but there are a number of preventative measures that can be put in place to reduce the risk and progression of macular degeneration. Macular degeneration is usually associated with aging however research suggests there also is a genetic component to the disease.
