65% of Americans experience digital eye strain symptoms when using a computer or smartphone.
Proper eye care is important for people of all ages and regular eye exams are encouraged for everyone, but especially for those already using glasses or contact lenses. Your vision plays a vital role in your life each and every day, which is why it is so important to take the right steps for maintaining good eye health. At Eigenbrodt Vision Center, we provide a variety of services, from general exams to corrective surgery. We also carry a wide selection of eye frames for our patients as well.
Comprehensive Eye Exams
Here at Eigenbrodt Vision Center, we place a strong emphasis on routine eye exams.
On average, we recommend scheduling an appointment once every two years to ensure your eyes are remaining healthy. If you have been diagnosed with an eye condition, however, we recommend scheduling an appointment once or twice a year depending on the severity.
During your appointment, we will review your patient history, visual acuity, perform preliminary tests, and evaluate your eyes’ overall health.
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.
Here at Eigenbrodt Vision Center, we specialize in hard-to-fit contacts cases. We strive to provide the most comfortable and cost effective contact lens for each and every one of our patients. We begin with a specialized fitting to help determine the ideal match for your specific condition. The following conditions may qualify you as a candidate:
Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis (GPC)
Post-LASIK or other refractive surgery
Presbyopia (reduced near vision common in individuals ages 40 and over)
Eigenbrodt Vision Center has a wide selection of eyewear brands so you can find just the right pair. Our doctor uses the most up-to-date technology to assess your vision to make certain you get the perfect customized prescription.
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.
Eigenbrodt Vision Center 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.
Treatment options vary depending on the severity. While dry eyes cannot be cured, there are various ways to soften or lessen your symptoms. During your appointment, we will discuss the treatment options that best fit your needs.
