What is the benefit of an anti-reflective coating?
An anti-reflective coating allows more light to pass through the lens providing exceptionally clear vision. It is helpful in office situations or where you may have light coming at you from many directions. It is also helpful in low light conditions, reducing the halo effect around light sources.
What is the difference between polarized lenses and tinted lenses?
A polarized lens filters the light to reduce glare (particularly on highly reflective surfaces such as water, snow, or wet pavement), whereas a tinted lens simply makes everything darker.

Will you dilate my eyes during my exam? If so, how long does the dilation la
Our Doctors prefer to dilate your eyes (use drops that cause your pupils to expand to improve the view of the retina). We like to do this for patients of all ages. The dilation will generally last 3 to 4 hours.
Doctors of optometry are the nation's largest eye care profession, serving patients in nearly 6,500 communities across the country, where in more than 3,500 of these communities, they are the only eye doctors.* Doctors of optometry are trained to examine, diagnose, treat and manage disorders that affect the eye or vision.
An Ophthalmologist is a Medical Doctor trained in medical school followed by a four year residency in eye surgery and disease management. Although there are many areas in which Optometry and Ophthalmology overlap, Ophthalmologists are surgeons and have subspecialties such as Retina and Corneal management.
We are fortunate to have many highly skilled Ophthalmology colleagues for our patients that require surgery.
