A thorough vision examination given by Village Eye Associates may take 30 minutes to an hour. There are no shortcuts. During this time, the Doctors will obtain information about you and take a thorough family history and discuss your vision needs. They will check visual acuity to see how sharply and clearly you see at different distances and measure the eye's ability to focus light rays exactly on the retina. Color vision, depth perception, and eye muscle coordination and control are evaluated as well as inspecting the interior and exterior of your eyes for signs of possible eye or systemic diseases. They will also test your eyes for glaucoma.
Village Eye Associates co-manage laser refractive surgery or LASIK. Most referrals for surgery are made to The Laser Center (TLC) in Waltham. Providing post-operative care for our refractive patients in our office is a convenience for those patients who find it cumbersome to travel far for follow up care.
Village Eye Associates are trained to treat common eye conditions, infections, and inflammations, such as conjunctivitis. Prior to 1997, optometrists had to refer patients to an Ophthalmologist for these conditions but Massachusetts state law expanded the scope of Optometric practice to therapeutics thus allowing Optometrists to deliver this service. Treating patients immediately saves you time, money and hours of discomfort.
If you presently wear contact lenses or if you are interested in trying contacts for the first time; our office strives to provide you with the highest quality products and service to achieve success. Our goal is for you to attain the best experience by achieving the best comfort, fit and vision with your contact lenses. The doctors are on the cutting edge of materials and offer a variety of lenses and designs from the new "breathable" contact lenses to lenses that correct for an astigmatism, rigid gas-permeable, multi-focal contact lenses and lenses for eye color enhancement. Not all contact lenses are appropriate for all vision conditions. The key to being successful with contact lenses depends on the professional skill and knowledge of the doctors as well as your motivation and how well you follow the doctor's instructions.
If you are interested in being fit or refit to contact lenses please call our office to make an appointment. If you have not had an eye examination within 6 months, an eye examination will be necessary to determine if your eyes are healthy enough to wear contact lenses. Then, we will measure the eye and fit you with the best suitable contact lenses to fit your lifestyle and needs. If you are a new wearer you will be taught to insert and remove the contacts from your eyes, and then you will go home with a diagnostic pair. You will return in 1-2 weeks for the doctor to reevaluate the lenses on your eyes. Then contact lenses will be ordered once the doctor is assured that it is the proper lens for you.
Experienced contact lens wearers will have their contacts evaluated yearly. The doctor at that time will keep them abreast of the newest best products available for their eyes.
