Spokane Comprehensive Eye Exams

Scheduling comprehensive eye exams throughout your life is the first step to making sure your eyes are in peak condition and your vision is clear. We provide eye exams for patients of all ages, so that everyone can have access to expert eye doctors, advanced technology, exceptional treatments, and the best sight possible.

During a comprehensive eye exam, we start by using some of the most state-of-the-art technology available to screen your eyes for disease. This portion of the exam is so important because many eye diseases develop without showing symptoms — and by the time noticeable changes in vision finally occur, it may be permanent. If we detect anything that needs more attention, we’ll begin treatment immediately.

Next, we check your clarity of vision and make sure that your eyes are functioning properly. We’ll update your prescription, and if you use eyewear, you can rest assured that your glasses or contacts will provide crystal-clear vision.

Refractive Errors

Refractive errors occur when your eye is misshapen and doesn’t bend light correctly, resulting in blurry vision. Refractive errors are incredibly common and come in four different types:

  • Myopia (nearsightedness): objects that are far away appear blurry
  • Hyperopia (farsightedness): nearby objects appear blurry
  • Astigmatism: vision is blurry at a range of distances
  • Presbyopia: nearby objects appear blurry, but because of a loss of elasticity in the eye
    that occurs with age, rather than a misshapen eye

No matter which refractive error you have, our optometrists in Spokane will thoroughly evaluate your eyes and provide you with a vision prescription for glasses or contacts that can help you see clearly.

We’ll also help you understand your options for laser vision correction if you’re interested in taking steps to reduce your dependence on corrective eyewear.

Glaucoma Treatment

Glaucoma Management

Glaucoma describes a group of conditions where the pressure inside the eye becomes too high, causing stress on the optic nerve, the part of the eye that sends images to the brain. Suffering from glaucoma can be frightening, especially because it may cause irreversible vision loss, but we’re here to help you manage this serious condition.

There are a variety of treatments for glaucoma, including various medications and procedures. At Eye Consultants, we’ll evaluate your glaucoma and design a treatment plan specific to your eyes, even combining glaucoma solutions as appropriate so that we can reduce your eye’s intraocular pressure.

Diabetic Retinopathy Treatment

Those with diabetes are at greater risk of developing eye conditions, the most common of which is diabetic retinopathy. The retina, a light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye that’s essential for vision, is filled with tiny blood vessels. Consistently-high blood sugars in diabetics can affect these blood vessels and can cause capillaries to leak or burst. If untreated, diabetic retinopathy may lead to vision loss, or even blindness.

Diabetic retinopathy is a progressive disease, meaning it becomes more severe the longer it goes untreated. We recommend that, if you have diabetes, you visit us for regular exams so that we can monitor your eye health and detect any potential issues as early as possible.

Macular Degeneration Care

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a serious eye disease that affects the cells in the macula, which is responsible for central vision. The breakdown of cells in the macula usually occurs in older individuals, or in those with a family history of AMD or other retinal problems.

AMD can develop slowly and subtly, not showing any obvious symptoms until permanent damage has been done, making routine eye exams especially important. While there are no cures for AMD, our Spokane eye care team can help slow or halt its progression. We’ll determine the best path of action after evaluating your specific case of AMD.

Treatment for Dry Eyes

Millions of people live life with dry, uncomfortable eyes, unaware that they are suffering from an incredibly common condition called dry eye syndrome. At Eye Consultants, we’ve helped countless patients relieve the pain and irritation associated with their scratchy, dry eyes in our accredited Dry Eye Center.

Dry eye can be caused by many factors, including genetics, medications, and environment. After determining the cause of your dry eye, we can design a treatment plan using a combination of our available dry eye solutions, including in-office treatment with LipiFlow, specialty eye drops, prescription medications, and punctal plugs.
