Optometry Services We Offer
At Karns Vision Center, we offer a wide range of optometry services and treatments with a mission to evaluate and treat our patients with dignity, compassion, and an optometry treatment plan specific to their unique needs. We have world-class services to evaluate or treat any optometry condition.
Comprehensive Eye and Vision Exams
Our comprehensive eye and vision exams begin with a consultation to address any of your concerns, then follow up with vision testing to evaluate your vision clarity and eye function testing to evaluate depth perception and other vision responses. Our optometrists then review your overall eye health.
Contact Lens Exams
After a comprehensive eye and vision exam, your eye doctor will discuss contact lens options with you. To ensure we fit you with the best corrective contact lens, our optometrist will review your specific condition regarding dry eye, allergies, eye infections, or other issues that need to be considered.
Dry Eye Treatment
Dry Eye treatments replenish tears needed to lubricate the eyes and keep them healthy. Common symptoms may include burning, pain, redness, mucus, blurry vision, and other indications. We treat this condition with medication, artificial tears, lacrimal plugs, surgery, and home care.
Pink Eye Treatment
Pink Eye treatments alleviate the inflammation of the small vessels in the eyes that cause redness, a gritty sensation, itching, and conjunctivitis. We treat this condition with eye compresses, eye drops, or antihistamines with instructions to avoid touching the eyes or sharing personal items that carry germs.
Computer Vision Treatment
Computer vision treatment relieves stressed, fatigued eyes that have been affected by long periods of looking at a computer screen with poor lighting, glare, an angled screen, and poor posture.
Your eye doctor will evaluate your visual acuity, refraction, and focus, and eye coordination. We treat this condition with vision wear prescriptions and recommendations for computer setup, lighting adjustment, and periods for eye rest.
Hard-to-Fit Contact Lens
We offer services for hard-to-fit contact lenses regarding conditions of astigmatism, dry eyes, Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis, keratoconus, and presbyopia. We provide options like gas permeable lenses, toric lenses, and bifocal or multifocal lenses.
Refractive Error Treatment
After a comprehensive eye and vision exam detecting any refractive error, your eye doctor will recommend treatment that corrects eye vision problems related to myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. We treat these conditions with eyeglasses, contact lenses, or LASIK surgery.
Sports Vision Treatment
Sports vision treatment resolves issues athletes face or anyone who depends on their eyes to respond clearly and quickly, enhancing visual function. We treat sports vision issues with testing, eyewear, contact lens, or medication if needed.
Corneal Cross-Linking treatment repairs corneas left weakened by surgery or disease. Symptoms may include blurry vision, distorted vision, or light sensitivity. We treat this condition with innovative iLink corneal cross-linking technology that uses ultraviolet light and eye drops to strengthen the cornea to a healthy state.
LASIK Eye Surgery Evaluation and Referral
At Karns Vision Center, your eye doctor provides comprehensive vision care for pre-operative and post-operative eye surgery, including LASIK procedures. We use the highest quality technologies to determine if you are a good candidate. Then, we provide a referral for the surgery and perform any pre-and post-operative care you need.
Everyone must protect their eyes from harmful UV rays that can permanently damage the eyes and vision. We provide consultation to determine which sunglasses are best for you.
