Treatment of Eye Disease
If you are diagnosed with an eye disease, you want only the best treatment available to get your eyes healthy again. At Sierra Vista Optometry, we offer only the best. Based on your diagnosis, we may recommend a wide variety of approaches, including prescription medicines, therapy and vision exercises, or medical procedures
Optomap Retinal Exam
In our continued efforts to utilize the most advanced technology to the benefit of our patients, Sierra Vista Optometry offers the Optomap Retinal Exam as an addition to our normal services. The Optomap Retinal Exam scans your retina to create an overview or map, giving your doctor a more detailed view. It is fast, easy and comfortable. The Optomap Retinal Exam helps identify healthy eyes and detects the presence of disease. These retinal images are a great asset to your medical record as they allow your eye doctor to make important comparisons if potential problems show themselves at a future examination.
Children’s Vision Evaluation
Before your child is one year old, you should take your baby to your doctor of optometry for his or her first thorough eye examination. Things that the optometrist will test for include excessive or unequal amounts of nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism and eye movement ability as well as eye health problems. These problems are not common, but it is important to identify children who have them at this stage. Vision development and eye health problems can be more easily corrected if treatment is begun early. Unless you notice a need, or your doctor of optometry advises you otherwise, your child’s next examination should be around age three, and then again before he or she enters school. Remember, a child’s vision evaluation is very different from that of adults. The doctors at Sierra Vista Optometry are trained to work with infants and children to use and interpret objective tests to determine your child’s overall visual system.
Contact Lens Evaluation
It is important to remember that contact lenses are prescription medical devices. Various brands are designed and manufactured differently. The selection of a particular contact lens needs to be based on your vision problems, prescription, eye health, comfort requirements, lifestyle, age and physiological factors like tear flow. We'll discuss the different lens types and brands with you and advise you about the lens choices that are best for your eyes. Because everyone's eyes and vision needs are different, contact lenses are available with varying schedules for removal and replacement. We'll teach you how to properly clean and wear your new contact lenses to maximize vision and minimize potential risks.
At Sierra Vista Optometry we make sure that vision correction not only helps you see better, but also helps you feel better. That's why we offer contact lens evaluations. Contact lenses aren't right for everyone, but they may be right for you. Even if you have astigmatism or need bifocal lenses, we may have a solution. Your evaluation will include:
  • A look at your vision history
  • An extensive examination of your corneas and eyelids
  • A consultation session with your doctor, including recommendations and options
  • Low Vision Evaluation
    Low vison, or partial sight, is a visual condition which cannot be corrected by conventional eyeglasses or contact lenses. Low vison is the third most commonly occurring physical impairment in those over 65 exceeded only by heart disease and arthritis. Low vison rehabilitation is the evaluation and treatment of individuals with low vision. Based on each patient's individual lifestyle needs, solutions are sought to help the patients achieve their visual goals which may include the recommendation of optical and non-optical devices known as "Low Vision Aids". The testing procedures are different than a "routine eye exam" and the tests that have been done by your referring doctor are not generally duplicated. Low vison rehabilitation will not restore your lost sight. We will, however, try to help you to maximize your remaining functional vision.
