Daily Disposables Are A Great Option

Dr. Alan Schlussel indicates that the more frequently you replace your lens, the more comfortable and healthy it will be for your eyes. Over time, many substances accumulate and build up in your lenses. These substances could be dust, pollen or calcium, lipids and proteins present in your tears. The presence of these substances would have a negative impact on the comfort level of your lenses. Also, it also increases the chances for infections. Click here to learn more.

Our Focus on Technology

black_bodyIn our focus on providing the highest level of eye care for our patients we put a great emphasis on the most advanced technology. Optomap Digital Retinal Imaging is an advanced imaging platform that uses laser imaging to take a wide image of your retina, allowing your eye doctor to detect diseases that are harder to see in a standard eye exam.
