At Pasco Vision Clinic, we provide an array of vision care services for all ages. Our office offers a wide selection of eye care products, including eyewear, sun wear, contact lenses, nutraceuticals, dry eye treatment and others. Our mission is to provide the highest quality of service and products to address your specific eye care needs.
What to Expect
The best way to protect your vision is with a yearly comprehensive eye exam. When you arrive at our office, you will be greeted with friendly faces. Using the latest state-of-the-art technology to assess your eye health, the doctor will inspect your eyes thoroughly, answer questions, and discuss your eye care treatment options. In addition to determining your vision prescription, we have the ability to test your color vision, depth perception, eye-coordination and check for any early indicators of possible eye conditions such as cataracts, retinal problems, glaucoma and others. Our goal is to have each patient leave satisfied knowing that they are receiving the best eye care products and services possible.
Below are some of the most common services we provide
Comprehensive Vision & Medical Eye Health Exams
We offer state of the art eye examinations for all ages. We treat many ocular conditions such as dry eyes, allergies, cataracts, diabetes, eye infections, glaucoma, macular degeneration, ocular injuries, and binocular dysfunction. We use advanced technology such as the Optomap (provides better imaging for peripheral retinal diseases such as retinal detachments, tears, tumors, hemorrhages and signs of diabetes in the eye) and the OCT (you can think of it as an MRI for the eye) to scan the retina for disease. We also use visual field testing to evaluate ocular health and screen for neurological dysfunction.
Contact Lens Services
Soft Contact Lenses
Soft Contact Lenses are typically the best option for most people. These lenses are typically disposable and replaced daily, monthly, or bi-monthly. But if you have had trouble wearing soft contact lenses or have been told you are not a good candidate for contacts, you may have eyes that are “hard to fit.” This doesn’t mean you can’t wear contact lenses. You instead need an eye care professional who has expertise in fitting specialty contact lenses.
Are Your Eyes Hard To Fit?
Any of the following conditions can make contact lens fitting and comfortable contact lens wear more challenging:
- Dry eyes
- Giant papillary conjunctivitis (GPC)
- Post-refractive surgery (such as LASIK)
If you have (or suspect you have) any of these conditions and you want to wear contacts, visit the Pasco Vision Clinic today. Our eye care professionals specialize in contact lenses and welcome hard-to-fit patients. We offer the latest contact lens technology and use state of the art equipment that can measure your cornea more precisely to achieve the best contact lens fit possible.
Scleral Contact Lenses
Scleral contacts are large-diameter gas permeable contact lenses specially designed to vault over the entire corneal surface and rest on the “white” of the eye (sclera). In doing so, scleral lenses functionally replace the irregular cornea with a perfectly smooth optical surface to correct vision problems caused by keratoconus and other corneal irregularities. Also, the space between the cornea and the back surface of a scleral lens acts as a fluid reservoir to provide comfort for people with severe dry eyes who otherwise could not tolerate contact lens wear.
Paragon CRT Contact Lenses
CRT contact lenses are FDA approved for overnight wear and treat a child’s myopia while they sleep. Your child puts in the lenses at night before bed. While they sleep the lenses gently reshape the cornea. In the morning your child removes the lenses and has improved vision without the need for glasses or daytime contacts.
Vision Therapy & The Performance Vision Center
Vision Therapy, also called Neuro-visual rehabilitation, is designed to improve visual performance, and treat visual dysfunction. You can have 20/20 eyesight, but still have a vision problem. This is because reading an eye chart is a static visual task, while most daily activities require our eyes to perform complex dynamic viewing functions that we often take for granted. The inability of both eyes to work together as a team can result in double vision, reduced depth perception, poor physical coordination in sports, asthenopia experienced while reading and with other viewing tasks that can sometimes lead to migraines, etc.
Eye Tracking (Oculomotor) dysfunction exists when both eyes do not move smoothly, precisely, or quickly. Skipping lines or words and losing your place while reading are signs of problems with eye tracking. An eye tracking problem inhibits the ability to sustain attention and fixate on a single target such as the words on the page or a ball in a sport game.
Eye focusing (Accommodation) is the focusing ability of the eye. The eye is equipped with a variable lens system that allows for changes in focusing. Excess effort may be needed to maintain a clear image. As a result, eyestrain, headaches, and intermittent blurry vision can occur.
Eye Teaming (Fusion) is the ability of two eyes to work together to obtain a single image (binocular). For many individuals, using both eyes together may require extreme effort, fatigue and sometimes confusion.
Strabismus (eye turn) is the condition where both eyes fail to work together and there is a deviation of alignment between them away from the viewing target.
Amblyopia (lazy eye) is the condition where there is reduced best corrected vision due to a history of an eye turn, uncorrected high refractive error as a child or some form of deprivation during the developmental period.
The Performance Vision Center of Pasco Vision Clinic offers comprehensive binocular vision exams to help with the above conditions and many others. Please ask to be scheduled for your binocular vision assessment today.
