The doctors are highly trained to detect foreign bodies in your eye and remove them with anesthetic. If you think you have a foreign body in your eye please call us immediately and we will get you in for evaluation.
Your vision can deteriorate due to refractive error, caused by normal aging, or genetics. Old, bent, scratched up glasses can also cause your vision to be distorted.

If you feel your prescription is ever made in error we will be happy to recheck it for you.

Schedule an appointment today if you feel you have any risk of developing this disease.
