Did you realize that one of the most common symptoms of an eye condition is no symptoms at all? At Advanced Eyecare, serving Blue Springs, Raytown, and Raymore, MO, our optometrists encourage our community members to schedule a routine eye exam for their entire family, even if they seem to have perfect vision. With our advanced clinical skills and innovative eye care technology, our eye doctors can diagnose, treat, and prevent common eye health conditions.
Comprehensive Eye Exams
Routine eye exams are essential for protecting eye health and optimizing vision. Depending on your specific needs, goals, and stage of life, your individualized eye exam may include:
- Visual field screening
- Automated refraction and corneal curvature testing
- Visual acuity measurement
- Binocular vision testing
- Color vision testing
- Refractive error screening
- Slit-lamp examination
- Ophthalmoscopy and fundus photography
Many people don't realize that a yearly or bi-yearly eye exam is important for your eye health as well as your overall well-being! For instance, because eye doctors can screen for eye problems caused by other medical conditions like high blood pressure or diabetes, they are often the first healthcare providers to alert patients to these underlying health issues.
In addition to adult eye exams, we also provide comprehensive pediatric eye exams, featuring the Missouri kindergarten exam and InfantSEE services.
Diabetic Eye Exams
Diabetes, a chronic illness characterized by poorly controlled blood sugar, is one of the leading causes of blindness. People with diabetes should see their eye doctors more regularly, given their higher risk for ocular disease and vision loss.
During diabetic eye exams, we'll dilate your eyes to improve our ability to see inside them. We'll also utilize technology such as optical coherence tomograph (OCT) and Optos digital imaging to take pictures of the retina and screen for diabetic retinopathy and related conditions such as age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, diabetic macular edema, and glaucoma.
Contact Lens Exam and Fitting
Contrary to popular belief, contact lenses aren't "one size fits all." Everyone has unique eye characteristics which can make certain types of contact lenses better than others. Our eye care team will help you determine which types of contact lens is the best for you based on your eyes, your vision, and your lifestyle.
We also offer specialized and hard-to-fit contact lenses, including Ortho-K technology. Ortho-K involves nighttime use of contact lenses that gently reshape the corneas, allowing for improved daytime vision without the need for daytime corrective eyewear. It's a great option for people with conditions such as acute astigmatism or keratoconus.
Eye Surgery Co-Management (LASIK and Cataracts)
Our optometrists provide collaborative pre- and post-operative care for people undergoing a variety of eye surgeries, including LASIK and cataract removal and replacement. Co-management is essential for improving your outcomes and making sure your eyes heal properly, while also reducing your risk of complications like infection.
Chronic Dry Eye Treatment
People with chronic dry eye experience uncomfortable symptoms like watering, itchiness, grittiness, redness, and light/glare sensitivity. Our optometrists use technology such as iLux and Lipiscan to determine the cause of your underlying dry eye and help you relieve your uncomfortable signs and symptoms.
