Jennifer Carr O.D. provides a thorough and comprehensive eye examination.
In addition to a glasses prescription, the exam will test your overall eye
health. She will test for Glaucoma, Macular degeneration, Cataracts, and
many other eye diseases. Dilation of the eyes, which allows for a more
thorough look inside the eyes, is included but not required.
Carr O.D. takes a conservative approach to help to determine if LASIK is a
good solution for you. She can help to refer you to an experienced
surgeon and can be involved in your pre- and post-operative care. LASIK is a
surgical procedure intended to reduce a person's dependency on glasses or
contact lenses. It can treat a broad range of prescriptions such as
near-sightedness, far-sightedness, and astigmatism.
In the past
few years there have been many technological advances in contact lens
products. Contact lenses have become healthier, more comfortable, and
easier to care for. New products for dryness, astigmatism and bifocal
correction have allowed those who were previously poor candidates for
contact lens wear, to see clearly and comfortably. Dr. Jennifer Carr O.D.
can help you find the lens type and wearing schedule to fit your needs.
