Eye Exams

  • Comprehensive Eye Exams

    As your eyes gradually change, so can your vision and prescription needs.  An eye examination is more than just determining your prescription for glasses and contact lenses.  At Vision Best Eyecare, Dr. Best takes time to address your concerns and fully examine the eye for common eye diseases.  Early detection of ocular disease is crucial, even before your vision become affected.  Comprehensive eye exams help to sustain your ocular health and screen many common systemic illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension, and auto-immune disorders that are detrimental to your overall health.

  • Children's Eye Exams

    Because children grow so quickly, their vision is vastly different than adults.  Toddlers, school-age children, and adolescents each have their own needs at these various stages of life, so it’s crucial to have their eyes examined on a regular basis to check how their vision is advancing and to detect any potential problems.  Education experts say that 80% of learning is visual.  In fact, many issues related to learning and extracurricular activities can be eye-related.  Dr. Best will exam your child’s eyes expertly and with a gently and friendly touch, so children have a positive eye care experience!

  • Contact Lens Exams

    No other eyes are shaped quite like yours, nor do anyone else’s eyes refract light in the exact same way.  Consider this, it’s easy to see why a proper contact lens exam and fitting is vital to your comfort and vision.  Dr. Best loves to work with her patients to get the right fit and troubleshoot difficult past experiences that have discouraged contact lens wear.  We offer a large selection of contact lenses we trust such as Johnson & Johnson, Alcon, Bausch + Lomb, CooperVision, so you know we are going to find the best fit for your eyes.  Is it time for you to schedule your contact lens appointment with us?

  • Diabetic Eye Exam

    Diabetes increases the risk of developing glaucoma, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration.  Not only that, but you could develop diabetic retinopathy and diabetic macular edema, two conditions that could affect your sight.  If you have diabetes, it is very important that you have an annual eye exam.

Eye Diseases & Medical Eye Care

  • Digital Eye Strain/Computer Vision Syndrome

    Do you work on a computer all day?  Are you constantly on your phone or tablet?  Computer Vision Syndrome has become a growing issue in the digital age.  Americans average 6-8 hours of screen usage per day.  In the last decade, there has been a dramatic shift in how we use our vision.

    Some signs that you may be affected by digital eye strain include:  frequent headaches, eye fatigue, dry eyes, stiff neck/shoulder pain.

    ZEISS Digital Lenses make tired eyes and a stiff neck a thing of the past.  They help users of digital devices to maintain comfortable, focused vision all day long.  The effectiveness of ZEISS Digital Lenses have been proven in tests carried out with smartphone and tablet users.  More than 90% of all respondents were satisfied with the reduction in the symptoms of strained or tired eyes by a factor of 4.

    In addition, ZEISS DuraVision BlueProtect reflects parts of the blue light emitted from computer screens, tablets, smartphones, and LEDs, preventing it from entering the eye.  There is a body of evidence to suggest that long-term exposure to blue light disrupts regulation of melatonin in the body, which influences circadian rhythms (day-night rhythm) and general well-being.  They also contribute to photochemical damage of the retina, increase the risk of macular degeneration over time.
