A comprehensive eye examination at Rainbow Optics focuses on three key areas:
*Refraction - testing to determine your prescription and discussion of options such as glasses, contact lenses, or refractive surgery
*Eye efficiency - testing of aiming and focusing of the eyes, and possible treatments for deficiencies
*Eye health - assessment of the outer and inner structures of the eye, and possible treatments for issues that are identified
When we are not seeing as clearly as possible, nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or presbyopia may be to blame. The process called refraction is used by your Doctor to determine the prescription for your glasses and contact lenses. Our Doctors perform their own refractions, blending their experience with the art and science necessary to determine the best prescription for you.
Our eyes must properly aim together and focus in order to function efficiently. Problems with eye aiming or focusing can result in reduced speed and comprehension for reading tasks and can hinder sports performance. The Doctors at Rainbow Optics routinely test for eye inefficiencies and will discuss various treatment options when indicated.
Our doctors are trained to diagnose diseases of the eye such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and complications from diabetes and are able to render treatment for many conditions. Our doctors also co-manage treatment with our local surgical colleagues for refractive surgery such as Lasik, cataract surgery, and other specialized care. You will receive a thorough assessment of the health of your eyes at Rainbow Optics including a dilated retinal examination.
At Rainbow Optics, our Doctors specialize in fitting all types of contact lenses including lenses for astigmatism correction and options for presbyopia. Contact lenses are made from biocompatible materials that are fit over the cornea of the eye in order to provide vision correction. Due to the interaction of the lens with the tissue of the eye, contact lens wear is monitored carefully by our Doctors to maintain the health and vision of your eyes. Many people successfully wear contact lenses; however, contact lens wear is not possible for everyone. Your doctor will discuss the possibilities and limitations for contact lens wear that apply to you following your comprehensive exam.
Our Doctors work with you and your surgeon to co-manage pre- and post-operative care for cataract, refractive (Lasik), and other surgical procedures of the eye in order to maximize the outcome.
