Eyeware is not a one-size-fits-all arena, especially for those who require both up close and far distance correction. Dr. Hooper loves taking an individualized approach to glasses, creating a specific plan for you! We use Zeiss lenses and even our clear lenses come with
full UV protection!
Dr. Hooper's professional passion is creating an individualized contact lens plan for prevention of increased nearsightedness or for those who are unable to see both up close AND far away (presbyopia).
Many vision insurances only cover routine eye exams, but we offer tests beyond the standard eye exam that allow for increased sensitivity for disease and valuable baseline information! Ask about our Preventative Package today!
A large part of the examination is finding out what the patient is experiencing and determining the type of dry eye causing the symptoms. We examine the surface of the eye under a microscope to look at the quantity and the quality of the tear film. Additionally, we examine the eyelids and the glands inside the eyelids to insure they are healthy.
There are a wide range of treatments ranging from over the counter products to specialty laser procedures. Many times using artificial tears and vitamin supplements can help boost the tear film. There are prescription eye drops that can aid in tear production as well as laser procedures for patients with more advanced dry eye.
Of course – stay hydrated and making sure you consume enough water each day. Additionally, take breaks from your computer and smart phone. I recommend the 20/20/20 Rule – take a 20 second break every 20 minutes and look 20 feet away and blink your eyes. Finally, wearing sunglasses is critical to protecting the surface of the eye and the eyelids from UV exposure.
