There is so much more to vision than what “acuity” at 20 feet can measure. Vision comprises not only the health of the eyes but also clarity of vision, accommodation, eye movement, coordination and integration.

The options in modern contact lenses are extensive. We have soft, toric, multifocal, rigid and colored contact lenses. The latest in technology combined with our years of experience allows us to provide you with the best choices for your correction and even perhaps a fun eye color change for a special occasion.

When should children have their first eye exam. What signs and symptoms indicate a possible problem? Check out the additional information in this linked page and “20/20 is not enough”. Coming from a pediatric background, Dr. Getz has a decidedly developmental point of view on insuring that during these formative years the visual system has the best advantages to develop properly.

The type of vision loss, the personality of the individual, the stage of acceptance of vision loss, and the unique goals to be accomplished all factor into which Low Vision Aids may be of assistance in providing independence and quality of remaining vision. It is our passion to protect eye health. All sight is precious and it is our goal to obtain optional function for each individgual regardless of visual level.
