    What is Astigmatism? How is Astigmatism corrected?

    Astigmatism is a refractive error usually associated with an irregularly shaped cornea. A spherical cornea creates a single focal point while an astigmatic, irregularly shaped cornea creates more than one point of focus. As a result the image that is formed on the retina of the eye is blurred. Glasses, contact lenses and refractive surgery may all be used to correct Astigmatism.

    What is a cataract?

    A cataract is a clouding or opaque area of the lens of the eye - an area that is normally transparent. As this thickening occurs, it prevents light rays from passing through the lens and focusing on the retina - the light sensitive tissue lining located in the back of the eye. This clouding is caused when some of the protein which makes up the lens begins to clump together and interferes with vision.

    What is the difference between an Optometrist, Ophthalmologist and Optician?

    An Optician is involved in the fitting and making of eyeglasses. Optometrists and Ophthalmologists are both eye doctors who diagnose and treat various vision conditions and eye diseases. The main difference between an Optometrist and Ophthalmologist is that an Ophthalmologist is also trained to do eye surgery.

    What sets your office apart from most other health clinics that treat patients with pain or symptoms due to many different types of spinal disorders?

    What sets us apart in most cases is that at our facility we first take a complete history, and we listen to the patients needs to understand what they are trying to accomplish. After a thorough evaluation, and review of a patient's diagnostics tests, we make sure that the patient understands their problem by first going over in detail what their tests reveal before any treatment is prescribed. Also, we make sure we diagnose each patient properly so they may be put on the proper treatment. I think most people would be amazed on the amount of patients we have, that have been to many other doctors, have had a myriad of tests, were never even told what their test revealed, and have never been put on the proper treatment. A lot of our patients have been going around in circles from doctor to doctor looking for answers and in many cases there may be a simple solution to their problem.
