Comprehensive Eye Examinations

Our comprehensive eye examinations evaluate your eyes, both inside and out, for any potential disorders or diseases. Your visual skills and abilities are carefully evaluated and appropriate treatment is prescribed - whether it's medication, lenses or low vision rehabilitation.

Dr. Shackelford has extensive residency training and is prepared to handle whatever your eyecare needs may be.

Technology is rapidly changing the eye care industry. We utilize the latest in diagnostic equipment and are committed to keeping up with whatever advances will come next. 


Contact Lens Services

We have been fitting specialty contact lenses for years and have seen some incredible changes in that time.

By far the most exciting changes have occurred in the last few years. 

New lens materials and medications for allergies and dry eye conditions have made contact lenses more comfortable then ever.

In addition to providing your contact lenses, we offer one-on-one contact lens insertion and removal training in our office.

Ask one of our staff members about available contact lens rebates when purchasing a year's supply of contact lenses!

 


Optical Frames and Lenses

Our optical laboratory has the latest in equipment to not only fabricate your glasses, but to maintain and repair them should they become broken or damaged. We are able to tint, coat, harden and edge spectacle lenses.

Our highly qualified optician and staff are able to adjust and fit your glasses to you for extended comfort and vision.We are able to provide you with any frame or lens design available.

Our highly qualified optician and staff are able to adjust and fit your glasses to you for extended comfort and vision.

We also carry a large selection of designer eyeglasses, children's frames, sunglasses, and safety glasses.


Laser Vision Correction

Advances in laser vision correction have enabled many glasses wearers to improve their vision without the use of glasses or contact lenses.

If you are interested in laser vision correction, we will be happy to help guide you in picking the right surgeon, procedure and laser appropriate for you.

For many patients, especially long-term contact lens wearers my pre-operative input can make the difference between an excellent result and a mediocre one.

Post-operatively we can monitor your eyes, and assist with modifying and tapering medication instructions in order to arrive at the best possible result.

After all, no one knows your eyes better than your optometrist!



Eye Infections, Eye Injuries, and Dry Eyes

Our office provides emergency services for eye infections and eye injuries. Please call our office if you are experiencing an eye infection or have suffered and eye injury. Our staff will work with you to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. State of the art microscopes allow us to examine the front surface of the eye and facial areas around the eye for infection or injury. After assessing the extent of the injury or infection a treatment plan will be formulated and explained to you. Follow-up visits to monitor your recovery will be scheduled as needed.

Dry Eyes: Symptoms of dry eyes include scratchy eyes, burning, mild redness and gritty feeling eyes. This condition can be quite uncomfortable, but there are ways we can help! Oral medications, reading, computer tasks and dry environments may aggravate marginally dry eyes. Dry eyes can be diagnosed by using dyes to observe tear patterns, evaluation of the amount of tears on the front of the eye and from review of your symptoms. Treatment may include artificial tears; eye drops for treating allergies; and/or punctal plugs inserted in the tear drainage canals. 


Cataracts, Glaucoma, and Diabetes

Cataracts, Glaucoma and DiabetesCataracts: The natural lens in the eye gradually becomes less clear as we get older. When opacities develop in the lens and the lens gets too hazy, vision will be impaired. Our office can diagnose and manage cataract care. When the cataract affects the vision to the extent that you cannot read or see distant objects comfortably, we will recommend cataract surgery. Our office co-manages with cataract specialists that are proven experts in cataract surgery. Cataract surgery can provide you with a bright new world of vision.

Glaucoma: Glaucoma gradually destroys the optic nerve tissue in the back of the eye. The greatest danger of glaucoma stems from the fact that the disease is painless and without obvious symptoms until significant damage has occurred. The most common cause is from pressure being too high inside the eye, but vascular disease and other diseases can also cause glaucoma. We always monitor for glaucoma during routine eye examinations. Tests include checking the pressure of the eye, screening for peripheral vision defects and analyzing the appearance of the optic nerve. If you are diagnosed with glaucoma, we typically prescribe medications that lower the eye pressure. Most forms of glaucoma are successfully treated with eye drops. Laser treatments and eye surgery are secondary treatments that offer alternative ways to treat more advanced glaucoma.

Diabetes: Diabetic patients should have a dilated retinal examination each year. Laser treatments have proven to slow the progression of retinal eye disease for many patients. Diabetes often stimulates the growth of new blood vessels in the back of the eye, which ultimately leak and damage the retina. If this condition is discovered early, laser treatment can destroy these vessels. We have the latest instruments used to detect changes in the back of the eye. If we discover advancing diabetic eye disease that can be treated or needs further evaluation, we will refer you for consultation and further testing to a board certified retinal specialist.
