  • General OptometryThis makes up the majority of eye care visits. These visits usually pertain to the improvement of eyesight though the use of glasses and contact lenses. Most of these conditions involve myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. Other conditions that fall under this category is the treatment of double vision, amblyopia (reduced vision in one eye), strabismus (one eye that turns in or out).

     

     

  • Medical OptometryMedical Optometry has seen the biggest growth in recent years. This is due in part to the rapid increase in senior citizens. Often times these individuals are unaware of any medical condition creating problems with their vision and assume that glasses will quickly correct the problem. By receiving a comprehensive eye exam, additional eye conditions such as cataracts or macular degeneration may be diagnosed. Dr. Knecht will discuss these conditions and recommend or provide treatment to minimize vision loss. It is recommended that individuals older than 65 have a yearly exam. Early diagnoses helps to minimize vision loss.

     
  • Pediatric OptometryThe visual system matures rapidly during the first eight years of life so it is important to identify any problems that may interfere with normal vision development. Although young children may not be able to read an eye chart, specialized procedures have been developed that allow us to perform an eye exam. The most common conditions that are treated in these early years of life are amblyopia (reduced vision in one eye) and strabismus (one eye turning in or out). Early identification of a child's vision problem is crucial because, if left untreated, some childhood vision problems can cause permanent vision loss. Children as young as 6 months old can be given an eye exam. It is recommended that at age 2 or 3 and then again at 5 years children receive eye exams. Consider your family history and if there is any strabismus, amblyopia or other issue that presented early in life. Quality comprehensive eye exams will help to enable your children achieve their highest potential.
