We truly believe in routine eye examinations so that you can see as clearly as possible. Once you have to get glasses or contacts, it is even more important to watch the health of your eyes. You also need routine checks to ensure your prescription has not changed.
To ensure good eye health and vision, we are very proud to offer the following services:e
Comprehensive Eye Exams
On average, we recommend scheduling an appointment once every two years to ensure your eyes are remaining healthy. If you have been diagnosed with an eye condition, however, we recommend scheduling an appointment once or twice a year depending on the severity.
During your appointment, we will review your patient history, visual acuity, perform preliminary tests, and evaluate your eyes’ overall health.request an appointment
Nowadays, most people prefer to wear contacts instead of glasses. If you are interested in contact lenses, please let your eye doctor know prior to your appointment. During your exam, we will discuss the various contact lenses available and determine the best option based on your individual needs and lifestyle.

There are many different styles, shapes, and materials to choose from when picking out the best frames for your lenses. This can sometimes be an overwhelming and difficult decision, but at 20/20 Vision Center, we are happy to help you find the best frames for your specific wants and needs. Although frames are primarily a style choice, they are also affected by prescription strength. High-index prescriptions may limit which frames can support your lenses, but our friendly opticians are happy to help you find the right solution!
Frame material is also an important choice that needs to be made when choosing your frames. For our patients with metal allergies, we offer several options in alternative frame materials such as plastic or acetate. Since plastic and acetate frames are generally not adjustable, it is crucial to get the proper fit. Stainless steel frames are also an option as it tends to be less irritating than other metals for those with sensitive skin. Titanium is another alternative, and they are incredibly lightweight as well as durable and hypoallergenic.
Dry Eye Treatment/ Equinox LLLT
What is Dry Eye Syndrome?
Dry eye syndrome (DES) occurs when tear production and drainage are not in balance. You can either not be producing enough tears or the quality of the tears may be poor.
Symptoms of DES can vary but typically include itching, burning, redness, watery eyes, fluctuating vision and even eye pain. Without treatment or proper medication, dry eye syndrome can worsen over time.
Do you have a chalazion that won’t go away?
What is a chalazion?
A chalazion is a slowly developing lump that forms due to blockage and swelling of an oil gland in the eyelid.
A chalazion often starts out as a very small, red, tender, swollen area of the eyelid and is generally not an infection. In a few days, it may change to a painless, slow growing lump the size of a pea and can often be confused with a stye (or hordeolum), which is an infection of an oil gland in the eyelid.
A stye produces a red, swollen, painful lump on the edge or the inside of the eyelid and usually occurs closer to the surface of the eyelid than chalazion. If left untreated, a stye can result in the formation of a chalazion.
How do you treat a chalazion?
Most chalazions require minimal medical treatment and clear up on their own in a few weeks to a month. If the chalazion does not drain and heal, you may require light therapy.
- Equinox LLLT – an FDA approved Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) for the treatment of dry eye, meibomian gland dysfunction, hordeolums (styes), chalazions and other related conditions. Light modulation has been used in medicine, primarily in dermatology for years.
- This therapy directly treats the meibomian glands (the glands that help produce our tear film) through heat to lessen the chalazion in as few as 1-3 treatments depending on the severity of the chalazion.
- Ask to be scheduled for a treatment session.
Ocular Disease Management
Your eyes are the window to your soul, but also to your health! Your eyes display live action of blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissues throughout your body. Problems spotted in the eye are often the first signs of disease lurking elsewhere in your body.
At 20/20 Vision Center, we care not only about your eyes but about your general health as well. Our doctors specialize in glaucoma treatment, macular degeneration as well as other countless eye diseases but did you know we also help manage your diabetes?
While patients with uncontrolled blood sugar levels have a higher risk of diabetic retinopathy, those with controlled diabetes are still at risk. Diabetic retinopathy occurs when the blood vessels inside the eye start to leak blood and fluid into the retina, causing damage and permanent vision loss. Early detection and treatment are crucial for preserving your eyesight.
Allowing us to regularly monitor your ocular health, you are ensuring that any changes that occur will be detected early before they can lead to any permanent vision loss.
