At Spring Creek EyeCare, we provide comprehensive eye examinations which evaluate all aspects of your eye health. Through dilated eye evaluations, disease processes such as diabetes, macular degeneration, glaucoma, corneal disease, and congenital anomalies can be diagnosed and managed.
The average comprehensive eye examination will last approximately one hour and will likely include pupil dilation (especially if you are a new patient). Dilation is necessary to completely access your ocular health, as well as diagnosis certain ocular and systemic disease processes. The primary side effects of dilation are temporary difficulty with near vision and light sensitivity. These effects can last several hours, with the highest sensitivity experienced within the first hour of drop administration. It is advised that you consider arranging for alternate transportation from your exam if you feel visually compromised from the dilation effects. Please keep in mind that we perform routine dilations because complete assessment of your eye health is our primary concern.
On the day of your examination, please bring all insurance information, as well as your glasses and contact lenses. Payment is expected at the time of service for all non-covered services, so please bring a form of payment with you to the exam as well.
Prior to your exam, there is paperwork for you to complete. This may be accomplished before arriving in office by downloading these forms from our website.
Spring Creek EyeCare fits and supplies many types of contact lenses, including those for aesthetic use, cosmetic use, and those needed for medical necessity. Soft, gas permeable, and specialty contact lenses are used routinely to help correct for astigmatism, presbyopia (the natural decline in near vision experienced with aging), and irregular corneas.
Because of the array of available contact lens options, almost everyone can be successfully fit into lenses. Through years of training and experience, Dr. Easton has been able to accommodate the most difficult prescriptions. From spherical and astigmatic prescriptions to post-trauma corneas, Spring Creek EyeCare has the lens options needed to serve your needs. Given this variety of options available, the amount of training and follow-up needed will vary greatly and depends on your entering level of training (i.e. if you’ve worn contact lenses in the past) and type of contact lens chosen.
Please keep in mind contact lenses are medical devices which will require routine monitoring of your ocular health. After you are
successfully fit into contact lenses, you are required to undergo annual evaluations to ensure good corneal health and continued visual success. Please remember contact lens exams are designed to make sure your contact lenses not only fit, but won’t damage your eyes as well as ensure safe use for years to come. The services associated with contact lens exams are in addition to the comprehensive eye exam fees and may not be covered by your insurance (especially if you are filing with a medical provider).
Our full-service optical shop maintains the same hours as the medical practice to provide frame selection assistance and repairs without the need for an appointment.
At Spring Creek EyeCare, we strive to maintain the latest technology to allow for complete documentation and serial evaluation of ocular health. From visual field perimetry to ocular coherence tomography (OCT), corneal topography to retinal digital photography, we have the equipment to provide the highest level of service to you and your family.
During your comprehensive exam, we will offer the option of elective retinal photography. This is a method to visually document the baseline of your ocular health. Although not considered a substitute for dilation, these photographs may aid in the early diagnosis of diseases including diabetes, macular degeneration, and glaucoma.
