Cataracts cause a clouding of the lens in the eye, making your vision appear to be foggy. Cataracts are the most common cause of vision loss in people over 40 and are the leading cause of blindness in the world.
Your eyes are meant to naturally adjust to normal light changes, adjust focus, and allow us to see both near and far. Your lens is primarily made up of water and proteins. The proper arrangement of these proteins is what contributes to normal vision. Some of these proteins clump together forming a clouding of the lens.request an appointment

Computer Vision is a relatively new term within the optometry field and refers to eye problems associated with the prolonged use of computers and electronics that utilize a digital screen. Although it can be temporary, there are times when computer vision can strain the eyes to a degree that permanently affects your vision as well. An existing eye condition can worsen as the eyes try to focus and adjust to a computer screen, and precautions should be taken if you spend long hours in front of a computer screen.
If you have been experiencing blurry vision, dry eyes, eye strain, headaches, neck or back pain, try adjusting the lighting, posture, and the distance in front of your computer screen. If computer vision symptoms persist, call us to request an appointment, we will perform a full evaluation.request an appointment
Our eye doctors are qualified and skilled at fitting contact lenses from simple to complex vision conditions. The contact lens evaluation will be customized with great detail to your individual vision needs and eyes. We fit lenses for simple nearsightedness or farsightedness, astigmatism and multifocals.

Diabetes is one of the leading causes of blindness in this modern world. As a diabetic, your vision may change from day to day or even morning to night depending on your sugar level for the moment. It is crucial for your retina to be looked at at least once a year. We have the latest technology to look through the pupil which is the only direct window into the body and assess the blood vessels of the back of the eye. We look for complications such as bleeding, narrowing or bulging of the blood vessels or new blood vessel growth which is leaky ( like weeds). We can then report to your primary care general Dr so that a continuum of care is achieved for your best interest.request an appointment
Digital Retina Imaging
Using a digital camera system, our optometrists at Iris Eyes Optometry can clearly see and examine your retina, located at the back of your eye. This examination is critical to monitoring the health of your eye as well as to the early detection of many medical problems. The pictures generated through retinal imaging help us identify problems with your vision and can also help diagnose other medical conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol, or even brain tumors.
Dry Eye Treatment
Iris Eyes Optometry is proud to offer dry eye treatment for our patients. Ocular Surface Disease, also known as dry eye, can occur from certain medications, naturally by aging, or as a symptom arising from systemic diseases such as Sjogren’s syndrome, Rheumatoid arthritis, or Lupus. If you have a minor case of dry eye, you may be experiencing irritation, excessive tearing, fluctuating vision, and/or a burning sensation in your eyes. Excessive dry eyes, or dry eye symptoms that go untreated, have the potential to damage eye tissue, scar your corneas, and impair your vision.request an appointment
Here at Iris Eyes Optometry, we are here for you in the case of an emergency. There are times when you may need immediate care for your eyes.

If you get anything in your eye, especially chemicals and foreign objects, you should be seen immediately to limit the potential damage to the eye.request an appointment
Glaucoma occurs from damage to the eye’s optic nerve and can often lead to loss of vision and blindness. To detect glaucoma, our highly trained doctors will perform a proper screening to determine severity, examine the damage, and help you manage your glaucoma.
Early detection of glaucoma is crucial in preventing vision loss and blindness; the earlier the better. However, there is no official cure for glaucoma. There are several treatment methods that manage, slow down, or halt the process. Treatment for glaucoma will vary depending on the stage and severity for each individual patient.request an appointment
Hard To Fit Contact Lenses
Do you find wearing contact lenses impossible? Are your regular contacts painful or constantly uncomfortable? You are not alone. Due to a variety of factors such as individual eye shape, specific conditions, impairments, or the aftermath of surgery, some patients are considered to have more difficulty wearing contacts than others.request an appointment
Farsightedness, known as hyperopia, makes it difficult to see objects close by. If you are experiencing farsightedness, corrective lenses such as glasses or contact lenses will be prescribed. After a thorough examination, we will determine the prescription that’s best for you.request an appointment
Keratoconus is a non-inflammatory disorder that affects the cornea. The cornea becomes thinned and steepened, resulting in distorted vision, sensitivity to light, and decreased vision. Symptoms typically manifest in a person’s younger years, usually the late teens or 20’s.
Keratoconus can affect a person’s ability to read or drive, which can be a major obstacle for people. Luckily, this is a condition that can be diagnosed through a routine eye exam, which underscores the importance of scheduling regular eye exams for you and your children.request an appointment
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 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.request an appointment
Macular degeneration is a deterioration of the central portion of the retina, the inside layer of the eye that records the images we see and sends them through the optic nerve from the eye to the brain for processing. The macula, or the center of the retina, is responsible for focusing central vision in the eye and controls our ability to see and process information.request an appointment
Nearsightedness, known as myopia, makes it difficult to see objects from afar. If you are experiencing nearsightedness, corrective lenses such as glasses or contact lenses will be prescribed. After a thorough examination, we will determine the prescription that’s best for you.request an appointment
If you are interested in laser surgery, we will begin with a comprehensive eye examination, which will let us know more about you and your needs. We may have to perform some testing to properly diagnose your eye conditions. During this time, the surgeon and staff will go over what you can expect before, during and after the procedure; we want to make sure to give you realistic answers for your unique vision.request an appointment
Vision rehabilitation is a service that can restore function after vision loss. It is just like physical therapy but for your eyes. Vision rehabilitation will allow people who have recently lost their vision or have low vision to continue to live normally and maintain their regular daily routine.
There may be many different parts of a vision rehabilitation session. Some of these include assessing and evaluating your needs and what your routine was like prior to your vision loss. Some others include teaching adaptive independent living skills, utilizing community support services, facilitating psychosocial adjustment to vision loss, and record keeping.
Prescription Re Checks
Vision is complex and adjustment to a new prescription can vary. Focusing spasm, fatigue , amount of rest and even your general health on the date of exam can affect the measurement. If you are not adjusting to your new prescription we are happy to schedule a re-eval at no charge within the first 60 days from the date of your initial exam. A $20 fee will apply for all re-checks after the 60 days. An entire new exam is required 90 days after the initial exam.
Optometrists, as primary eye care providers diagnose and can treat a variety of complications such as cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment and macular degeneration. Early detection of diseases affecting the eye is crucial to ensure preservation of vision. We recommend a yearly comprehensive eye exam to detail the health of the eye. Eye emergencies such as infections and foreign body removals are treated as well.
