Comprehensive Eye Exams
Regular eye exams are an invaluable tool in maintaining healthy eyes by detecting and preventing disease. Some diseases develop slowly without causing pain or vision loss. Early detection of any problems can reduce the risk of further harm and allow for a choice of treatment options. Part of your exam includes the following procedures: slit lamp examination, Retinal eye exam, Refraction for glasses & contact lenses and Glaucoma pressure testing as well as a series of computerized tests to determine the health of your eyes.
Diabetic Eye Care
Dr. Steve D. Rubinstein provide eye examinations for patients with diabetes. It is important for people who have been diagnosed with diabetes to have their eyes examined annually, because diabetic retinopathy is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States. During the examination, the doctors will document the health of your retinas with digital retinal photographs, and a report will be sent to the primary car physician managing the diabetes. If necessary, a referral will be made to a retinal specialist if severe enough diabetic changes are found.
Contact Lens Exams
Thanks to the advances in optical technology, almost everyone is a candidate for contact lens use. This includes patients with astigmatism and also those who prefer bifocal or multifocal lenses. At our office, we offer a comprehensive array of contact lenses to suit each individual patient's needs. We offer daily disposables, extended wear soft lenses to gas permeable contact lenses. We offer regular and custom lens services for both healthy and difficult to fit patients.
Low Vision Therapy
Dr. Steve D. Rubinstein provides examinations, training, and devices to improve the independence, visual function, and quality of life for those patients visually impaired by eye conditions such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and most other eye diseases and conditions which result in poor vision despite the use of corrective lenses.
A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of your eye. For people who have cataracts, seeing through cloudy lenses is a bit like looking through a frosty or fogged-up window. Clouded vision caused by cataracts can make it more difficult to read, drive a car, especially at night, or see the expression on a friend's face.
Glaucoma is not just one eye disease, but a group of eye conditions resulting in optic nerve damage, which causes loss of vision. Abnormally high pressure inside your eye (intraocular pressure) usually, but not always, causes this damage.
