Stanhope eye doctor
We offer a full slate of valuable eye care services here at Stanhope Eye Associates. Our Stanhope eye doctor handles everything from routine eye exams to the diagnosis and management of eye diseases and conditions, including emergencies. Furthermore, our optical store is pleased to provide for our patients of all ages, including children.
The foundation of top notch eye care is a yearly eye exam with our Stanhope eye doctor, recommended for everyone. Your vision requirements change from year to year, and as a result, you may need to have an update for your existing eyeglass or contact lens prescription. Or if you have never worn corrective lenses before, this could be the year when you can finally benefit from them. There is no reason to settle for subpar or even just adequate vision when you can enjoy the sharpest and clearest vision possible.
The diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases that include cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration is also key to what our Stanhope eye doctor has to offer. These conditions all share one very important aspect: they form and progress silently, with no symptoms being evident during their early stages. It isn’t until you experience some degree of vision loss or damage to your eyes that you become aware that there is a reason to seek help. By then, however, the effects you have already sustained may not be reversible. This is why coming in annually is so essential. And, of course, if you notice anything abnormal with your eyes, call us right away to book an appointment. Dry eye evaluation and management is also in the list of our services. This is a situation that can occur because you are not producing enough tears, or because the quality of the tears you are producing is insufficient to do the job.
Also think of our Stanhope eye doctor when you suffer any type of eye emergency, such as a foreign object in your eye, an eye injury, or any accident that has an impact on your eyes. You can even call us after hours. Other issues we handle are vision therapy, sports vision, computer vision syndrome, and contact lens exams and fittings.
It is very important that you and members of your family are able to have comprehensive eye exams on a regularly scheduled basis. This way your eyes will be screened for many different eye diseases and disorders. Since eye diseases can have few or no noticeable symptoms in the early stages, it is very important that you have periodic eye exams to make sure that your eyes are disease-free. When it comes to protecting your good eye health, it is very important that you have any potential vision problems diagnosed as early as possible. This is because eye diseases are generally most easy to treat in the early stages, before any permanent vision damage has occurred. If you would like to see our Stanhope optometrist for a comprehensive eye exam, or contact lens and fitting, you can relax knowing that your vision care is in the very best hands.
Just one of our top notch optometrists is Dr. Lisa Ruffle. At our vision practice, our Stanhope optometrist will not only be able to provide you with comprehensive eye exams, but also with contact lens exams and fittings, as well as with other vision services. Our eye doctor also offers pediatric eye exams. It is very important that young children also have their vision checked to make sure that they are not developing any vision problems which need care. Pediatric vision problems can interfere with your child’s learning at school or even with social interactions. If you have glaucoma, our Stanhope optometrist will be able to participate in your glaucoma evaluation and treatment as well as with your cataract evaluation and management. If you are suffering with macular degeneration, our optometrist will also be able to help manage this disease as well. Other diseases which our optometrist can help manage are macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and dry eye.
Many patients come to see our eye doctor because they need to have a comprehensive eye exam or a contact lens exam and fitting. During both of these eye exams our Stanhope optometrist will screen your eyes for a wide range of eye diseases and disorders. Among the eye problems that your eyes will be screened for are: glaucoma; cataracts; diabetic retinopathy; macular degeneration; dry eyes; retinal tears; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. During our eye exam, your eyes will also be tested for their visual acuity. If it is determined that you have nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, an eyeglass or contact lens prescription will be written for you.
