Our eye care clinic provides comprehensive eye exams, myopia control services, specialty and general contact lens care, treatment of eye diseases and a full range of functional visual care services including low vision, visual rehabilitation following traumatic brain injury (TBI) and visual therapy.

  • Early identification of a child's vision problem is crucial. Myopia (nearsightedness) is becoming much more common and it increases the chance for serious eye disease in later life.  Techniques are available to slow down its development.  We take special care to determine your child’s myopia risk and discuss what can be done to help.  
  • Learn more about what problems can be spotted with an eye exam, what’s involved in a comprehensive exam, and special considerations for kids and contacts.
  • Recent research has indicated medical and optical approaches to slow down the development of myopia.  This has the potential to reduce eye health risks as one ages and makes things easier to see than they otherwise would be without glasses or contact lenses.  Myopia Control is a rapidly evolving area of care, and Drs. Jacobs and Diaz are dedicated to remaining at its leading edge.
  • Orthokeratology, or "Ortho-k," is the process of reshaping the very front surface of the eye with specially-designed rigid gas permeable contact lens-type molds. The molds are slept with, allowing Ortho-K to alter the contour of this surface and correct mild to moderate amounts of nearsightedness and astigmatism, resulting in clear daytime vision without glasses or contact lenses.  Besides the visual convenience advantages of Ortho-K, it is also a proven Myopia Control technique.
  • A variety of conditions involving the front surface of the eye result in distorted and blurred vision even with the use of glasses or general purpose contact lenses.  Among these are keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration, severe dry eye, some eye injuries, irregular astigmatism, and past corneal surgery.  Scleral lenses vault over the clear covering (cornea) of the eye and a few millimeters onto the white area (sclera).  They become, in effect, the front surface of the eye and correct for many kinds of irregularities.  They provide excellent vision and despite their size, they are surprisingly comfortable.
  • Even minor head injuries can affect visual functioning and make everyday tasks such as reading, driving, or even just walking thru Krogers, much less comfortable and more difficult.  Our knowledge and experience with patients who have suffered these injuries allow us to offer the understanding and care necessary for optimal recovery.  Whether from football, soccer, a car accident, or a slip on the ice, the visual consequences of a concussion are real and deserve expert, professional attention.
  • Dry eyes result from the chronic lack of lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye, which can cause minor irritations, an inability to wear contact lenses and an increased risk of corneal inflammation and eye infections.
  • Vision plays a crucial role throughout childhood and beyond. Yet many parents don't understand how vision helps their children develop appropriately.
  • Sports eyewear can give you the performance edge you're seeking for just about any sport (tennis, racquetball, etc.) or recreational activity (hunting, fishing, etc.). It can also provide the safety and eye protection you need as well.
  • Did you know your optometrist can help you with red eyes, pink eye, or sore eyes, foreign body removal and eye emergencies?
  • Including Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, and Cataracts.
  • We use the most up-to-date technology to ensure the best eye care possible. Learn about the different types of tests and equipment you may experience on a visit to our Practice.
  • If you're ready for an alternative to glasses and/or contacts look to us for co-management of LASIK, cataract, and other ocular surgery.
  • Low vision is the term used to describe reduced eyesight that cannot be fully corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses or eye surgery. The primary causes of low vision are eye diseases, but low vision also can be inherited or caused by an eye or brain injury.
  • This service offers early detection of potential eye and vision problems at no cost regardless of income or ability to pay. It is a one-time, comprehensive eye and vision assessment for babies, usually conducted between the ages of 6 and 12 months.
  • Astigmatism is a very common eye condition that's easily corrected by eyeglasses or contact lenses and on some occasions, surgery.
  • Does holding a newspaper farther from your face help you see the words? For this reason, presbyopia is sometimes called "long-arm syndrome."
  • A comprehensive library of vision-related information that will help you better understand how your vision works, common eye conditions, surgeries and how your vision changes as you age.
  • CareCredit lets you begin your procedure immediately—then pay for it over time.
