Services Offered

Our optometrist is happy to offer a wide range of eye care services, ranging from routine care to emergency services and everything in between. Our most common service provided is that of our comprehensive eye and vision examinations, which are vital to staying on top of changes in your eye health and making sure your vision prescription is up-to-date. We can also provide screening and diagnostics for a variety of eye conditions and diseases, including:

  • Glaucoma
  • Cataracts
  • Macular degeneration
  • Dry eye

  • If you are diagnosed with any of these conditions, our eye-care team is able to provide treatment and management as needed. This includes cataract surgery to replace the damaged lens of the eye with an artificial lens, which is performed by our own Dr. Glassman.

    If you need new glasses, contacts, or other prescription eye wear, we also offer a large selection for you to choose from in our office.

    Emergency eye care services are also available during our regular office hours, so if you are experiencing an eye or vision emergency, simply contact our office before you come in so we can make sure we have staff ready to assist you when you arrive.

    Conditions We Can Treat

    There are a number of eye conditions and diseases that our eye-care team is able to treat and manage in our office. Glaucoma is among the most common diseases that we see and treat and occurs when high pressure in one or both eyes causes compression of the optic nerve. This can lead to permanent vision loss if not treated promptly. We can also treat more common conditions such as pink eye, conjunctivitis, and dry eye with medicated eye drops. For those interested in vision correction without the need for LASIK surgery, we also offer corneal refractive therapy in our office, which involves the use of specialized contact lenses to temporarily reshape the corneas for improved vision.
