A Focus On Vision-Medical Care
Vision-medical care focuses on the health and medical wellness of the eyes and visual system. While general optometry practices deal with vision screenings and correction, the vision-medical specialty clinics at Dunes Eye Consultants provide medically-driven vision care.
Preserve Your Precious Gift of Sight at Dunes Eye Consultants
Many eye diseases cause few symptoms — some don’t produce notable changes in vision and can go undetected for years. Exams focusing on vision-medical care can help identify diseases in their early stages when they are most treatable. We are one of the first clinics in the region to offer SightSync® testing and Neurolens® treatment, which can address computer vision syndrome, concussion and TBI rehabilitation, chronic eye fatigue, headaches, and migraines.
Dunes Eye Consultants uses advanced, state-of-the-art technology to provide diagnostic evaluations and treatments for patients of all ages — from pediatric to geriatric — and various eye conditions, including cataracts, ocular surface disease, glaucoma, dry eye disease, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and more.
How Often Should I Have a Comprehensive Eye Exam?
Most healthcare providers recommend well-vision exams annually, with regular visits becoming more important as you age. If you have existing vision problems or eye health issues.
If you wear contact lenses regularly, frequent visits can help ensure your corneas (the clear lenses covering your eyes) remain healthy. Learn how you can toss your contacts with iDesign LASIK vision correction.
Children should have their first eye exam by the time they're six months to identify potential problems that occur soon after birth and again before first grade to ensure vision problems don’t affect their adjustment to school.
