Comprehensive Eye Health Exams
Dr. Arun will help you learn in detail about your vision and health concerns. Routine vision examinations are important for preventative health care to diagnose and treat any eye disease.
Diabetic Eye Exams
Diabetics must see an eye doctor once a year to track any changes or damage to the eye which is then followed by recommended treatment.
Diabetic retinopathy causes problems with your retina, the part of your eye responsible for transferring visual information to your brain for processing. Diabetic retinopathy can cause blood vessels in the retina to leak fluid or bleed, resulting in distorted vision or visual impairment.
Emergency Eye Care
Midland Eyecare offers emergency eye care for both new and existing patients. A lot of people tend to go to the emergency room if they experience an eye injury or another urgent eye issue (such as a sudden loss in vision, increase in floaters, a red-eye, severe eye pain, chemical exposure, or a dislodged contact lens). However, it is better to go to your local optometrist in these situations as they can diagnose/treat your eye issue as well as send you to the appropriate specialist if required.
Children's Eye Exams
Children are recommended to have their eye exams as early as 6-9 months and then annually starting between ages 2-5 years. Eye exams are important especially for children during their crucial years to evaluate and maintain their basic visual skills for academic and learning purposes.
Myopia (near-sightedness) is the result of the eye being too long for its focusing power. Children are being exposed to increased near visual demands (phone, tablet, computer, school work) and we have seen a significant increase in the rate of myopia around the world. Myopia significantly increases the risk of retinal detachment, glaucoma and myopic maculopathy. At Midland Eyecare, we are using Atropine prescription eye drops, Ortho-Keratology (Ortho-K) or Cooper Vision MiSight 1 day contact lenses for myopia management.
Dry Eye Evaluation & Treatments
Dry eye is a progressive disease that starts asymptomatically. It is caused by a chronic lack of sufficient lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eyes. It can cause more than just discomfort and if left untreated, dry eye can cause corneal damage.
If you are experiencing symptoms such as fluctuation in your vision, burning, itching, watering, redness, gritty/sandy feeling or foreign body sensation you may be experiencing dry eye.
Contact Lenses and Contact Lens Eye Exams
If you are interested in contact lenses, please let Dr. Arun or the front desk staff know prior to your appointment. During your exam, we will discuss the various contact lenses availability for your prescription and determine the best option based on your individual needs and lifestyle.
Our office offers contact lens assessment for spherical, toric and multifocal contacts. We also fit Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) lenses, Ortho-Keratology (Ortho-K) and Scleral lenses.
Scleral contact lenses are large diameter lenses, mostly used for patients who have irregular corneas such as Keratoconus or Dry eyes. These are specifically designed to vault over the entire corneal surface and rest on the white portion of the eye, also known as the sclera. Any irregularities in the corneal surface are filled in with a gentle layer of cushioning tear-like liquid that helps provide a smooth clear surface to optimize your vision and it can also keep the front of your eye moist.
At our office, we provide pre and post-operative care for patients undergoing LASIK eye surgery by reviewing your medical history as well as performing a full assessment of your eye health and vision. This consultation will help determine if a patient is a possible candidate for the procedure and to consider any factors that may affect the results.
Digital Retinal Imaging & OCT
A quick and easy test to get high resolution photos of the blood vessels, the inner lining of the eye and the retina. This helps track your eye health over the years and becomes a permanent part of your eye health record.
Glasses, Contacts, Safety Glasses
At Midland Eyecare, we strive to provide you with the best service for your eye wear needs. We carry a wide range of value frames, designer frames and contact lenses.
