Today, exposure to high energy blue light is greater than ever before. Increased exposure to blue light may interfere with sleep patterns and may cause damage to the photosensitive cells of the retina. New anti-reflective lens treatments and lens tints have been developed to help limit the amount of blue light that reaches your retina. Ask one of our Team Members how we can help or schedule an appointment with one of our optometrists.

Our clinic has the latest in retinal imaging technology. The Zeiss Optical Coherence Tomographer (OCT) allows detailed imaging of the retina to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of retinal diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration. Your doctor will recommend this imaging based on your family history and current state of your eye health.


Ask Dr. Fredric Robertson a Question...

What is the examination like to determine if someone has dry eyes?

A large part of the examination is finding out what the patient is experiencing and determining the type of dry eye causing the symptoms. We examine the surface of the eye under a microscope to look at the quantity and the quality of the tear film. Additionally, we examine the eyelids and the glands inside the eyelids to insure they are healthy. More about Dry Eyes...

What are the typical treatments for dry eyes?

There are a wide range of treatments ranging from over the counter products to specialty laser procedures. Many times using artificial tears and vitamin supplements can help boost the tear film. There are prescription eye drops that can aid in tear production as well as laser procedures for patients with more advanced dry eye. More about Dry Eyes...

Are there any recommendations to help people avoid dry eye?

Of course – stay hydrated and making sure you consume enough water each day. Additionally, take breaks from your computer and smart phone. I recommend the 20/20/20 Rule – take a 20 second break every 20 minutes and look 20 feet away and blink your eyes. Finally, wearing sunglasses is critical to protecting the surface of the eye and the eyelids from UV exposure. More about Dry Eyes...
