Services Offered

We're proud to offer a wide variety of services here at Lakeside Eye Associates. One of our most common services provided is that of a routine eye and vision exam. These are recommended to most of our patients once per year and serve a number of important purposes, from making sure you have an up-to-date prescription on your corrective lenses to checking for potential signs of ocular diseases. Our team is also able to treat any number of ocular problems, including dry eyes, conjunctivitis, and more.

In addition to our standard eye and vision testing, we can also help you when it comes to choosing contact lenses. We carry a wide variety of today's most trusted brands of contacts and will work with you to determine which option is best for your lifestyle and budget. We even have innovative contact lenses that are designed to be worn safely at night.

Have you ever considered having LASIK eye surgery done? If so, then Lakeside Eye Associates can help you in that regard as well. Specifically, our team specializes in both pre- and post-operative care for LASIK procedures. This means that we can evaluate your eyes and determine whether or not you're a viable candidate for LASIK, in addition to referring you to a skilled and experienced eye surgeon.Following your surgery, we will work with you by scheduling follow-up appointments that carefully monitor your condition and vision improvements.

Regular vision testing lets us identify and correct refractive errors that cause eye strain and impair your ability to read, write, drive, and generally enjoy life. Our optometrists can determine your exact corrective lens prescription for glasses or contact lenses to correct astigmatism, myopia, hyperopia, and presbyopia.

Our optometrists can also help you with other eye issues that interfere with your health and comfort. Dry eyes, for instance, can cause irritation, redness, and vision problems while making the eye more vulnerable to infections and damage. Our eye doctors can provide the necessary treatment, supplements, and lifestyle counseling to help you…. We can also treat conjunctivitis and other common eye discomforts.

Contact Lenses

One of the most exciting advances in contact lens technology, Ortho-K, enables many people to enjoy crisp, clear daytime vision without wearing any corrective lenses. Ortho-K contact lenses are designed to be worn at night, during sleep. These special lenses gently and temporarily re-contour your corneas, permitting you to wake up to terrific vision that can last for days at a time.

If you're interested in long-lasting, lens-free vision correction such as LASIK laser eye surgery, or you need another kind of eye surgery such as cataract removal, you can rely on the Lakeside Eye Associates optometry team for essential backup and support. We will counsel and educate you on your condition and your surgical options, do all the preliminary testing, and refer you to a skilled eye surgeon for the procedure. We will then follow up by monitoring your post-operative condition through periodic eye evaluations and vision testing.
