Diagnosis and Treatment of Medical Conditions Concerning Eye and Visual Health

Home About Video Prehabilitation Articles Services Links Merchandise Forum


Various Diagnostic Testing Performed

Diagnosis of the external and internal eyeball with ophthalmoscope, biomicroscopy, 
goldman tonometry, and corneal topography.

Neurological diagnosis done with a Computerized Peripheral Field Tester.

Eye Teaming diagnosis done by Eye Cover Testing and Brock String Testing.

Visual Acuity tested by Automated Refractor.

Near-point testing skills emphasized in diagnosis and treatment for Children's' Learning Disabilities.

Results of the diagnosis are evaluated, determined by testing, for course of treatment required.

Various Treatments Performed To Correct Specific Sight Conditions

Custom-Fitted Contact Lens

Enhances central & peripheral awareness harmoniously.
Keeps size in natural correct proportions, regardless of the magnitude.
Our office emphasizes Global Seeing with custom-fitted correct contact
lenses. This acts as a catalyst to speed up vision training for treatment
of amblyopia, slow reading or perceptual problems in school, and allows 
the player to see the whole field of play without being funneled in (glasses).  
Allows patients to see optimally with low-vision problems such as
keratoconus, retinal degeneration problems such as macular
degeneration, peripheral visual field defects, amblyopia (lazy eye),
and extremely high spectacle corrections.
After seeing 16 champions develop visually, the right contact lenses
helps everyone see the big picture to get into the zone easily.
In school and sports achievement, contacts aid faster reading, span of
recognition, and enhances global seeing for quicker and more accurate
eye-hand reaction in sports. If vision is now efficient, they become visually intuitive.

Ortho-Keratology

A non-surgical procedure to temporarily reshape the cornea using special designed gas permeable lenses to reduce nearsightedness and astigmatism while dramatically improving unaided eyesight. Pilots, athletes, adults, and young children increasing yearly in nearsightedness can halt and reverse the progression of their myopia with this procedure that has been done since 1960. The benefit is that many patients can go for 24 to 72 hours without their contacts if unaided vision can be brought to 20/25 to 20/20.  We have been fortunate to have many patients accomplish this goal. See letter from Ted Schmeltzer and article on Kevin Barclay. There are professions like pilots, firemen and police that need to have adequate unaided vision to qualify. This procedure helps non-surgically and is safe. Dr. Eger is a fellow in the International Orthokeratology Society since 1984. My suggestion to you is to go to somebody who has extensive experience.

Near-Stress Relieving Lenses
For near point perceptual problems with children and adults who cannot sustain long-term focusing. This stress shows up in poor posturing, headaches, blurry vision, poor attention, itching, burning, eye fatigue, and double vision. We also use special progressive lenses for computer near-stress symptoms for adults and children.   Near-stress relieving glasses placed temporarily on students helps their near-far focusing efficiency and can halt and sometimes reverse the first onset of nearsightedness. In a year or two these glasses can be disregarded and sight improves naturally.                                                                            

Therapeutic Medical Treatment

 Prescribed certain oral and topical medications for treatment of eye disease and infections.                                                                                    

Vision Therapy
This is used in combination with corrective lenses, color filters, prisms, and/or
 contact lenses. This helps adults and children read, work and play more efficiently.

This treatment will improve all 7 fundamental skills of vision.

They are:
1. Eye Tracking
2.  Peripheral Vision
3. Sight
(must be global)
4. Binocularity (eye teaming)
5. Near/Far Focusing Efficiency
6. Visualization (visual intuition)
7. Localization In Space (spacial awareness)
