About Community Eye Optical
Often happening gradually in adults, vision changes can go unnoticed. An annual exam is the best way to ensure that your vision stays sharp. Additionally, during a comprehensive eye exam, your eye doctor will check your eyes for signs of serious health conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure, at times detecting these conditions long before other symptoms occur.
Comprehensive medical eye exams become even more important as we age because conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration become more common. Early diagnosis and intervention of these diseases can often prevent vision loss or blindness. Also, diagnosed in eye exams are common refractive errors:
Myopia (nearsightedness)- The patient can see near but not far – common from a young age.
Hyperopia (farsightedness)- The patient can see far much better than near- increases with age.
Presbyopia- loss of near vision, typical in patients over 40.
Astigmatism- irregular curvature of the cornea (the 'clear window' in front of the eye. These common refractive errors can be treated with glasses, contacts or surgery.
Whether you in need of a routine exam or facing something more complex, our physicians are prepared to treat you.
At Community Eye Center our ophthalmologists, optometrists, opticians and eye care professionals are committed to taking the time to listen to patients and communicate with them about their condition and treatment, informing them about their eye condition(s) and the appropriate alternatives to preserve a lifetime of good vision.
Trying to find the perfect pair of glasses should be a fun experience! Community Eye Center offers designer frames in a variety of colors, patterns and shapes so you can find the right look to match your personal style. Whether you are looking for a classic or trendy look, or you need frames that will withstand sports or outdoor weather conditions, you are sure to find the perfect pair in our selection.
Does fine print keep getting fuzzier? It could be presbyopia, a common condition previously treated with traditional bifocal and trifocal lenses. Bifocals and trifocals often cause images to “jump” while vision adjusts from far to near. Using advanced technology to ensure sharp sight from any distance, progressive lenses, or “no-line” bifocals, prevent this from happening.
The sun radiates ultraviolet rays (UV) that can be harmful to your eyes. Over time, this UV radiation can cause various eye conditions including macular degeneration and cataracts. To protect your eyes from the dangers of the sun, it is important to invest in eyewear with proper UV protection. UV radiation comes to the earth in two forms, UVA and UVB, both can be damaging to eyes. When shopping for sunglasses, it is important to look for eyewear that offers 100% protection from both UVA and UVB rays. Not all sunglasses are made the same.
Offering only sunglasses with the appropriate amount of UVA and UVB protection, Community Eye Center has a large line of sunglasses from which to choose.
Although sunglasses purchased from an online retailer or a discount store may claim they are equipped with UV protection, they may not offer defense against both UVA and UVB radiation. If you are unsure of the level of UV protection in your sunglasses, we welcome you to bring your sunglasses into Community Eye Center so we can test the level of protection using our UV light meter.
