Our office specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide array of eye diseases and conditions including specialty contact lenses for keratoconus, orthokeratology lenses for myopia management, early assessment of macular degeneration and night vision, and low vision evaluations for those with subnormal vision. We are one of the few offices equipped to provide Zeiss aberration correcting lens which enhances night vision. Recently we have added test lenses that help the color blind enhance their deficient color perception. This can be tried in the office.
