Our Eye Care Services

We recognize that no two patients are the same, and it's important to us to treat every patient as an individual. We believe in preventative care, and we strive to detect eye problems as soon as possible. Many eye problems become worse over time. Early diagnosis and treatment helps us to ensure that your vision stays intact for as long as possible. 

Eye Exams- It's important to have a vision checkup annually, even if you don't wear glasses or contacts. At your annual eye appointment, we'll screen you for degenerative conditions, do a visual acuity test, and talk with you about any eye problems that you may have. Many eye conditions are detectable by an eye doctor long before symptoms occur, so it's important that you see our optometrist regularly, even if you are not having vision issues. 

Visual Acuity Tests- Do you wear glasses or contacts? If so, it's important to have your vision tested at least annually. This allows your eye doctor to see if your prescription has changed. Wearing the wrong prescription can result in headaches, eye strain, and fatigue. While we recommend getting a visual acuity test annually, don't hesitate to call us if you believe your prescription may need an update. 

Cataract Surgery- For most people, cataracts are an inevitable part of life. We treat them as much as we can, we even have the ability to remove cataracts with a simple surgical procedure, helping to restore your clear vision. 

Glaucoma Treatment- Glaucoma can be painful, and can eventually cause loss of vision. Our eye doctor is able to treat glaucoma with medications and/or surgery to help you keep your vision for as long as possible. 

Ocuplastics- This facial surgery reconstructs the skin and tissue surrounding the eyes, restoring function and fixing aesthetic issues. We offer a number of different ocuplastic procedures.

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Engelman has been great. He's kept good track of my glaucoma on a regular basis and has done laser surgery in the office with good results. He explains things patiently. I had very poor luck with my previous doctor so was very pleased to find a good one."
