Services Contact Lenses
Contact lenses are an important part of almost any modern optometric practice. We fit all types of contact lenses, however we specialize in advanced and difficult contact lenses such contacts for people that have been referred to us because they were unsuccessful with refractive surgery, have keratoconus, dry eyes or have encountered problems with contact lenses.

Glaucoma is a progressive disease in which your peripheral vision progressively decreases. A patient's risk for developing glaucoma increases with age. Our doctors are Optometric Glaucoma Specialists, they have received additional training in the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma. Total Eye Care uses the latest technology in the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma.

We provide the latest in the treatment for patients with Keratoconus. Many new modalities are now available to us. Treatments range from the latest in soft/gas permeable hybrid contact lenses, providing the optics and vision of a gas permeable lens to the comfort of a soft lens, to more traditional gas permeable or soft contact lenses.

Laser Assisted in-Situ Keratomileusis is the most popular method of refractive surgery. It is a quantum leap improvement over the old method called (RK) Radial Keratotomy. RK was followed by (PRK) Photo Refractive Keratectomy. At Total Eye Care we partner with our patients in finding the best procedure (whether it is LASIK, PRK, 30 day extended wear contacts or clear lens extraction to name just a few of the options available) and the best surgeon for their situation and give our patients an unbiased opinion on the best procedure for them. We provide pre and post-operative care for our patients.

Patients love the Optomap. Most patients do not like to be dilated. The Optomap allows your eye doctor to view approximately 80% of the back of your eye. All patients can benefit from the images provided by the Optomap. The Optomap is not a replacement for dilation, however many patients do not wish to be dilated and the Optomap provides a good alternative and allows us to provide superior patient care.

Post Refractive Surgery Contacts
Patients often seek us out to help them with complications caused by refractive surgery such as LASIK, PRK or RK. Some patients are unable to attain 20/20 vision after surgery even though they could prior to surgery. These patients will often require special contact lenses to attain functional vision after refractive surgery. We will custom design a contact lens, using computer aided design software, to improve their visual acuity.

Dry Eye Syndrome
Many patients find that contact lenses are uncomfortable or burn. LASIK is another frequent cause for patients with dry eyes. Systemic problems such as Sjogren's syndrome can also lead to dry eyes. We have helped many patients improve their ocular comfort with the numerous advances available for patients with dry eyes. Relief is just a phone call away.

Computer Vision Syndrome
Patients often ask us if computers are bad for our eyes. No, computers are not inherently bad for our eyes, however if you have problems with your eyes computer use will often make the issue more apparent. In today's business environment computer use is almost a necessity. We provide solutions for our patients that allow them to use a computer comfortably, allowing them to be more productive.

Also known as OrthoK, Corneal Molding is a technique where gas permeable contact lenses are used to reshape the cornea, allowing a person to see well without correction. We custom design all of our OrthoK contact lenses with corneal topographer and computer aided design software. We offer free consultations to see if you are a candidate.
