Increased use of digital screens is also causing vision problems in both children and adults.
When your vision in seriously impaired, it can be very scary. We rely on our vision to connect with the world around us.
Our team of ophthalmologists provide both general and subspecialty eye care. Prevention and preservation are key for eye health, since so many conditions are affected by aging. Through regular eye exams and optometric exams, we aim to detect any issues in their early stages.
Don't take your vision for granted. If you are suffering from symptoms such as blurred- or double-vision with headaches, dry or irritated eyes, or any eye pain of any kind, make an appointment with one of our ophthalmologists.
