Here at Northeast Vision Center, we know how important proper eye care is.
We are dedicated to providing the highest level of service so you can have the vision you deserve.
We truly believe in routine eye examinations so that you can see as clearly as possible. Once you have to get glasses or contacts, it is even more important to watch the health of your eyes. You also need routine checks to ensure your prescription has not changed.
To ensure good eye health and vision, we are very proud to offer the following services:
Eye Exams: Everyone needs regular eye exams. It’s important for adults to schedule eye exams to monitor their eye health and check for problems. Conditions that are often detected during eye exams include glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy. Early detection of these conditions allows for the widest range of treatment options and the best chance of slowing or reversing any symptoms.
While children often get their scheduled exams during pediatrician visits, adults have to remember to make time for check ups. This is especially important for adults who have a family history of eye problems or have higher risk factors such as diabetes, high blood pressure, work conditions or medications. All adults should have their eyes examined every two years, and those with eye or vision issues should visit their optometrist yearly or bi-yearly.
Contact Lenses: We are proud to offer many types of contact lenses so that anyone interested in wearing contact lenses is able to do so. There are a lot of different options when it comes to contact lenses. You have to decide if you want daily, weekly, or monthly lenses, which depends on how often you want to change them. There are also rigid gas permeable lenses which are not disposable. They usually provide sharper vision than traditional soft lenses.
We also offer bifocal contact lenses if you need two prescriptions. This helps to correct the vision of those who suffer from presbyopia. We also offer monovision lenses, in which case you wear two different lenses. One is used to correct your distance vision, while the other corrects your near vision. There are also contacts which can change the color of your eyes.
LASIK: LASIK stands for laser in-situ keratomileusis and is a popular surgery to correct vision problems. LASIK can help people who are nearsighted or farsighted, as well those who have astigmatism.
LASIK works by reshaping the cornea with a laser, which allows light to be correctly focused onto the retina. A laser is used to create a small flap is in the cornea, which is peeled back so another laser can reshape the cornea. The flap is then placed back and the surgery is complete.
LASIK is popular because it is a quick procedure with a high success rate. The surgery takes about 10 minutes and only requires local anesthesia in the form of eye drops. LASIK does not typically involve much pain and does not require stitches or bandages. The results are often immediate and adjustments can be made in the future to correct vision if there are any changes.
While rare, there are downsides and potential side effects to LASIK, which is why you should consult with your optometrist to see if the procedure is right for you. At Northeast Vision Center, we will discuss what to expect before and after LASIK. Contact us at (802) 334-1515 today to learn how LASIK could work for you.
