Glasses and Contacts
Eyeglasses are a safe and common method of correcting myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. Dr. Stanley Grandon, Dr. Cindy Wang and I can prescribe glasses. We can spend the time discussing with you the best type of glasses to fit your daily needs.
If you are having trouble with both distance and near vision (especially if you are over age 40) we can make recommendations on the type of glasses to prescribe. You may do best with a pair of progressive lenses, lined bifocals, lined trifocals or separate glasses for distance and near vision.
We have a full service optical department offering frames in all price ranges and many different styles. Our highly experienced opticians can ensure you are satisfied with your new glasses.
If you prefer to not wear glasses, the board certified eye doctors at the Eye Surgery Institute can discuss alternative options such as contact lenses and refractive eye surgery (Epi-LASEK and LASIK).
Contact lenses offer correction of refractive error for patients who prefer to not wear glasses. Dr. Cindy Wang is highly experienced in fitting both soft and hard contact lenses. She also fits specialty contact lenses for patients with diseases such as keratoconus.
If you have had difficulty with contact lenses in the past, she is often quite successful properly fitting you in contact lenses. Contact lenses can be prescribed for patients who are nearsighted, farsighted, and have astigmatism.
Dr. Cindy Wang is highly experienced in fitting contact lenses and can ensure the best quality vision with the greatest amount of comfort. We offer a wide range of contact lens options including lenses that correct for astigmatism and lenses that correct for both distance and near vision.
Low Vision Evaluation
If you have eye diseases such as age related macular degeneration (ARMD) and advanced glaucoma, low vision optical aids often can help to improve your vision. Low vision aids can be helpful in helping you maintain your independence. Many different types of magnifying devices are available to assist you in maximizing your vision potential. Spectacles, hand or stand magnifiers, telescopes, and closed circuit television for viewing objects are some of the available resources.
Bright illumination properly directed for reading and close work is often beneficial. Special lamps can also be helpful to aid in your ability to read. Books, newspapers, and other items available in large print offer further help. Dr. Cindy Wang is highly experienced in optimizing your vision with low vision aids and proper lighting. These low vision aids can assist in maintaining your activities of daily living and an independent lifestyle.
