Thorough Eye Exams in Iowa City

Our eye doctors in Iowa City will ask the questions necessary to treat your eye conditions. We ask about your medical history as well as any symptoms you are experiencing in addition to what your work environment is like in order to get to the root of your eye problems. We only ask you the questions necessary to diagnose any underlying issues that affect your vision.

The next step of our thorough eye exams consists of a vision test that determines how well you can see. The goal of our examination is to evaluate your vision and get you seeing as clearly as possible. Our eye doctors will use a wall chart to examine how well you can see far away and close up in each eye. Once we get the results, we pair you with contacts or eyeglasses customized to your prescription. If you select contacts, we then do testing to determine the size of your eyes to find the ideal size to ensure comfort and efficiency. We also do testing to figure out the health of your eyes by doing a pressure test, a visual examination, and a pupil dilation. This helps detect issues like glaucoma. 

LASIK Eye Surgery

Laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) eye surgery is a solution for vision correction along with treatment for conditions like astigmatism, myopia, and hyperopia. We provide our patients with a consultation to determine if they are eligible for the surgery. We then refer the patient to expert LASIK eye surgeons who we trust and respect. We even offer our patients a follow-up with us after the surgery.  

Eye Surgery

We conduct many different eye surgeries to reshape the eye, correct lens issues and restore vision, just to name a few. We offer our glaucoma and cataract patients surgical options to help them correct or maintain their current level of vision. We begin with a consultation to evaluate if the patient is right for the surgery.  

Treatment of Eye Conditions 

Using oral medications and eye drops, we treat various eye conditions. We ask the questions necessary to determine the patient's particular needs and match them with a solution ideal for their issue.
