Our San Ramon eye wear selection features the newest collections from the top designers so you can really strut your own personal style while you improve the power and clarity of your vision. While the frames in our optical shop are the glamorous part of our eye wear the heart of it is the lenses, which are a direct result of the refractory portion of the examination. Our office is equipped with the latest in optical diagnostic technology including a high resolution retinal camera that allows our doctor to see deep within the eye to check for diseases of the retina without dilating the eye with drops and a new visual field analyzer that will quickly check peripheral vision. Our doctor will develop a vision correction prescription that will allow you to see at the your optimal level.

Our San Ramon eye wear is fabricated using the highest quality lenses from some of the most renowned brands and so to are our selection of contact lenses. Our doctor will fit your lenses based on the corneal map, corneal curvature and ocular surface condition information collected during the examination. Our practice carries contact lenses that conform to most patient’s lifestyles, we carry soft contact lenses for daily use, extended wear and disposables, as well as lenses that allow wearers to change the color of their eyes.

Danville Eye Exam

Eye testing in Danville

Our Danville eye exam is for vision testing, but it’s also for screening you to find any early indications of possible eye disease. If you’re wondering if it’s really important to come in every year, we at Visual Expressions Optometry want to assure you that it is. For one thing, your optimal vision is supported by ensuring that your prescription is meeting your current eyesight requirements, which are always evolving. And if you’re thinking that you feel fine and have no symptoms, so there is no reason to be concerned about glaucoma, cataracts, or other common eye conditions, it’s essential to know that there are no obvious signs of such diseases that would alert you. Only when some degree of vision loss or eye damage has occurred would you become aware of a concern. In some cases, treatment at that stage will prevent further effects, but not reverse the ones that have already happened.

If you’ve never worn eyeglasses or contact lenses before, maybe you could benefit from them now. Even if you’re seeing fine, that doesn’t mean that you couldn’t enjoy much clearer and sharper vision with a pair of corrective lenses. And for those who already have a prescription, an update to it might be just what you need. Nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or any combination of those vision issues can be easily corrected as a result of our Danville eye exam so that you won’t have to squint, struggle to see, or strain your eyes.

Anyone can contract glaucoma or cataracts, regardless of your age, gender, or heredity. Other eye diseases, like macular degeneration, become something to test for at the age of 40. And if you have type one or type two diabetes, you will also be screened for diabetic retinopathy. Fortunately, if any indications of eye disease are discovered, there are effective treatment and management options available to address it. Our Danville eye exam also can find indications of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes when you didn’t even know you had a problem at all. Your retinal blood vessels tell an expansive story. For all of these reasons, it is an excellent idea to schedule your yearly eye exam with us.

When choosing a pair of eyeglasses after your prescription has been written it’s the look of the frame that becomes important. When it comes to contact lenses after the eye doctor has written the vision correction prescription it isn’t the look of the lenses that most people are concerned with it is the fit and feel of the lenses. Our eye doctor Danville has a great deal of training and experience in fitting contact lenses for patients with all kinds of eye conditions. At Visual Expressions Optometry accurately fitting contact lenses is just one part of providing high quality total eye care.

Dispensing contact lenses at our eye doctor Danville begins with a comprehensive eye examination that includes a discussion of your medical history, eye concerns, family history and lifestyle. And will eventually end with another discussion of our doctor’s findings as well as a detailed talk about any possible recommendations our doctor makes. The exam itself consists of two parts, the first is a dilated eye exam conducted using our state-of-the-art diagnostic technology that will examine your eyes’ structure, check the visual acuity and recommend any needed vision corrections. The exam will also detect and diagnose any current or developing eye diseases, which can be very serious if not caught and treated early. During the second part of the exam our doctor will fit your eyes for contact lenses, ask about your preferences, lifestyle and takes measurements of your eyes including corneal curvature, pupil and iris size, ocular surface condition and tear film evaluation to make sure the lenses fit the eye correctly.

There are many different types of contact lenses that our eye doctor Danville can help you choose from depending on the results of our fitting exam as well as vision correction prescription, lifestyle and personal preference. Our practice carries soft contact lenses for almost every patient. Advances in lens technology have made these easy to use lenses available to folks with astigmatism or needing multi-focal lenses. Soft lenses wearers can choose from daily wear lenses that can be worn for up to 18 hours, extended wear that can be worn for longer periods of time, even overnight as well as disposables, which are only worn once and color-changing lenses that change the color of your eyes. Our office also offers gas permeable lenses that are slightly harder to adjust to but give clearer vision to users who suffer from severe nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. So, get the contact lens fit right by letting our doctor conduct a contact lens exam and fitting on your eyes.
