Comprehensive Eye Exams & So Much More

Midland Eye Associates provides a complete eye evaluation of eye health with every eye examination. This service is provided at the same cost as a typical exam with an optometrist who only performs vision testing.

Low Vision

The doctor will perform a functional eye exam that assesses how a person’s particular vision impairment affects his or her daily living. This will determine if low vision optical devices, large print reading materials, or better lighting can help the person function more effectively.

Vision Field Testing

This part of the exam can detect dysfunction in your central or peripheral vision which may be caused by various medical conditions including glaucoma, stroke, brain tumors, or other neurological deficits.

Color Vision

There are two different types of color vision defects. Congenital defects which we are born with and Acquired defects which are acute in nature due to a new medical condition. Both can be tested for at our office using a series of colorful plates.

Depth Perception

This is the part of the exam that measures the ability of the vision system to discern the relative distances of various objects, also known as stereopsis test.

Glaucoma Testing

Tests used to detect glaucoma include Tonometry, the intial test that measures eye pressure, Pachymetry, which measures the thickness of the cornea, and a visual field test which measures peripheral vision. Ocular Coherence Tomography is a non-invasive test that scans the back of the eye to measure for nerve tissue thinning.

CHILDREN

The doctors of Midland Eye Associates and our staff love seeing kids! Children should have regular eye exams starting at age 3. 3-6 years of age is the best time to course correct potential long-term eye conditions.

Annual eye exams are then recommended for kids who have eye conditions or wear corrective lenses.

At least one eye exam every two years is recommended for all children to ensure they can perform their best in school, sports, and activities.

ADULTS OVER 40

If you are over 40 years of age, you have likely noticed some changes in your vision.

Beginning in the early to mid-forties, most adults may start to experience problems with their ability to see clearly at close distances, especially for reading and computer tasks. This normal aging change in the eye’s focusing ability, called presbyopia, will continue to progress over time.

Most adults who wear corrective lenses will begin to need progressive lenses. The Opticians at Midland Eye Associates are all very experienced and will work with you to help find the right progressive lens or contact lens solution.

SENIOR CITIZENS

Annual eye exams for senior citizens are especially important. Dr. Kimball and Dr. Erickson will examine issues common with the elderly like glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts.

As we age, cataracts are a normal evolution of the aging eye. The doctors of Midland Eye Associates screen for cataracts as a regular part of all senior citizen eye exams.

Eye sight in senior citizens can change dramatically as the year’s pass, requiring regular exams to ensure you and/or your loved ones can see well for driving, reading, and activities they enjoy.

Our Eye Care Services:

  • Complete eye exams are not just for updating your prescription. Learn more about what your eye doctor will screen for, what to expect at your appointment, some of the advanced technology we use, and special considerations for pediatric and infant eye care.
  • A routine exam won’t provide some of the measurements and testing that are required to determine if your eyes are suitable for contact lens wear, though we are able to fit most patients even hard-to-fit, and to generate your contact lens prescriptions.
  • Eye problems can range from mild to severe; some are chronic, while others may resolve on their own. Here's a short list of common eye conditions we treat, such as astigmatism, dry eye syndrome and presbyopia.
  • We diagnose and manage ocular diseases such as Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Retinopathy and Cataracts.
  • 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.
