Welcome to Oasis
Comprehensive Eye Exams
Routine eye exams are important, regardless of your age or your physical health. During a comprehensive eye exam, your eye doctor does much more than just determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses. He or she will also check your eyes for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together as a team and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health.
Pediatric Eye Care
Reading, writing, and chalkboard work are just a few visual tasks children must perform daily. When 80 percent of learning occurs through the eyes, it makes regular pediatric eye exams that much more important to the success of your children in school. Children’s eyes should be examined once a year.
Diabetes can harm your eyes. It can damage the small blood vessels in your retina, or the back of your eye. This condition is called diabetic retinopathy. Diabetes also increases your risk of glaucoma and other eye problems. You may not know your eyes are harmed until the problem is very bad. Your doctor can catch problems early if you get regular eye exams.
Glaucoma Testing and Care
Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness and there may be no symptoms to warn you. Early detection, through regular and complete eye exams, is the key to protecting your vision from damage caused by glaucoma. A complete eye exam includes five common tests to detect glaucoma.
Emergency Eye Care
The following symptoms may indicate an emergency requiring immediate medical attention:
Black spots or flashes of light
Curtain-like disappearance of vision
Eye injury or pain
Seeing halos or rainbows around light
Loss of peripheral (side) vision
Sudden hazy or blurred vision
Sudden vision loss in one eye
Red, crusty or swollen eyelids
