Chagrin Falls optometry office
Comprehensive eye care means getting a vision test, but also a lot more than that. Here at Chagrin Valley Optometrists, your vision is a high priority for us, but so is your eye health. That’s why we screen you for common eye diseases. Contact lens exams, urgent eye care, and treatment for chronic dry eyes are also part of our complete list of services. And we are pleased to use modern equipment for diagnosis and treatment.
Visual changes are always occurring. And even if you didn’t need corrective lenses a year ago, or you were prescribed a pair of eyeglasses or contacts at that time, you may need a new or updated prescription now so that you can see your very best. In order to make that determination, our Chagrin Falls optometry office conducts various tests, including the familiar ones where you read from an eye chart and have your vision checked with various strength lenses. Of course, we are also pleased to have a full optical department. So you can have your lenses made here, and be certain that they will be crafted to the utmost of precision, in keeping with our commitment to only the highest quality. Common eye diseases include cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. They all have different causes, risk factors, and symptoms, but share one essential quality: in their early stages, there are no signs to alert you to their presence. That’s why our Chagrin Falls optometry office highly recommends a yearly screening. Early detection is closely linked to the best outcomes. And any damage to your eyes or loss of vision that could result from the advancement of such conditions may not be reversible.
It’s an ideal time to schedule an eye exam with us. Call our Chagrin Falls optometry office and set one up today.
Chagrin Falls pediatric optometrist
If you are looking for an optometry practice where your child can receive excellent pediatric eye care, you should visit us at Chagrin Valley Optometrists. Our Chagrin Falls pediatric optometrist, either Dr. Ronald Jurcak for Dr. Jenna Lewis, can provide your child with important pediatric eye care.
It is important that children have their eyes examined at certain intervals to make sure that their eyes and visual system are developing properly. When you bring your child in to see our Chagrin Falls pediatric optometrist, our eye doctor will give your child a complete eye exam and determine if your child is having any vision problems. Often times, a child will not even think to tell his or her parents that they are having problems seeing at school, so the best course of action is to bring your child in for an eye exam, even if your child is not complaining of any vision problems. If a vision problem is found, it can usually best be treated and fixed when it is found early. Amblyopia, also known as lazy eye, is a vision condition that affects about 2 to 3 out of every 100 children. In this eye condition, the vision in one of the eyes is reduced because the brain has learned to ignore the signals coming in from the bad eye. Often times the visual loss caused by amblyopia cannot be corrected simply by wearing eyeglasses. It is important that amblyopia is successfully treated when a child is young, or the vision problem can continue into adulthood and cause permanent visual impairment in one eye. Symptoms of amblyopia may include: eyes that turn in or out; eyes that do not work together; poor depth perception, or poor vision in one eye. Amblyopia can be easily diagnosed by our eye doctor during a complete eye exam. Treatment for amblyopia may include eye exercises, patching of the eye, or possibly eye surgery.

Chagrin Falls optometrist
From routine eye exams and screenings to addressing acute problems and emergency care, you can count on us at Chagrin Falls Optometrist
for all of your eye care needs, with a variety of essential services.
Everyone should have a comprehensive eye exam once per year. This is partially to ensure that your vision needs are being properly addressed, and also to determine if there are any indications of common eye diseases, which do not present any symptoms during their early stages. Our Chagrin Falls optometrist is pleased to employ advanced technology that charts changes in your eyes from year to year and identifies issues sooner than ever before. We don’t just provide eye care services for adults, however. Did you know that all children should get their first eye exam at 6 months of age? We’re committed to making certain that your child is enjoying optimal vision and that any typical childhood eye conditions, such as lazy eye or crossed eyes, are handles promptly. And whether related to the season or a chronic condition, our Chagrin Falls optometrist will evaluate and treat dry eyes. Urgent needs, which include the results of injuries or accidents, and any symptoms that are concerning (pain, redness, sudden vision loss), are also taken care of. We do screenings for glaucoma and macular degeneration; offer vision therapy for problems that cannot be managed effectively with corrective lenses; and we even have the state-of-the-art Ortho-K, which are special contacts you wear while you sleep, which provide the same benefits as LASIK but without undergoing surgery. And speaking of contact lenses, special examinations are required to ascertain that you will be able to experience comfort and avoid complications like irritation, inflammation, and infection when you put them in.
In short, we’re your source for eyeglasses and contacts, but also much, much more. Call us at Chagrin Falls Optometrist to schedule an appointment for an eye examination.
