Eye Clinic Services

Our clinic offers full ophthalmic services including routine eye exams, diagnosis and medical treatment of eye disorders and diseases, prescriptions for eyeglasses, orthokeratology, surgery such as cataract,glaucoma and strabismus etc., and management of eye problems that are caused by systemic illnesses.

Some eye diseases — such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy — have no symptoms in their early stages, so you may not know you have a problem until the disease is in its later stages. This can make treatment more difficult, and the problem could become harder to manage. Therefore, regular eye examinations are essential for early diagnosis and treatment. Early detection and treatment can slow down or even reverse the progression of eye disease.

 Common components of eye examinations:

  • Testing vision (with or without corrective eyewear)
  • Eye pressure tests
  • Checking alignment and movement of the eyes
  • Peripheral vision(visual field) testing
  • Examining the front of the eye using a microscope (a slit lamp)
  • Assessing the reflexes of your pupils
  • Examining the retina (the back of the eye)

How Often Should I Get an Eye Exam?

Babies (ages 2 and younger)

Ensure that your child has his or her eyes screened during regular pediatric appointments. Some childhood eye conditions to look out for include squints (crossed eyes), lazy eye (amblyopia), and childhood myopia (near-sightedness).

Children and teenagers (ages 3 to 16)

A child’s vision could be accurately tested at the age of 3. Ensure that the child has an eye examination every year.

Young adults (ages 17 to 39)

Ask for a comprehensive eye examination if you have a family history of eye disease or if you have sustained an eye injury. If you are very near-sighted, make sure you get dilated eyes exam once a year.

Adults and seniors

As you get older, you are more likely to develop age-related eye conditions. Look out for common eye symptoms like changes in vision or eye pain, flashes or floaters, distorted lines, and dry eyes that itch and burn. To monitor vision changes, adults should get a baseline eye screening when they are 40. Your doctor will assess how often you should return for follow-up screenings.

Anyone with risk factors

If you have a risk factor for eye diseases (i.e., you have diabetes, high blood pressure, a family history of eye disease like glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration, or are taking prescription medications which affect the eyes sucha s steroid), you should see your ophthalmologist more frequently. Ask your eye doctor to tell you the ideal interval between check-ups.
