Eye exams are the front line of defense to protect your vision. At Lifetime Vision, we provide diagnostic exams and testing to our patients in Grand Forks.
We use an assortment of state-of-the art testing technologies that help our doctors detect eye problems as early as possible. Our staff continuously stays on top of the latest advances in the field of eye care so that we can take the best possible care of your eyes.
Preventative Care is the Best Eye Care Treatment
Many of the most serious eye diseases, such as glaucoma and macular degeneration, have much more positive outcomes when they are caught and treated early. Thanks to modern technologies, preventative eye care has never been more important than it is today. There’s no reason why anyone should allow an eye problem to progress when preventative eye exams are available to help stop eye disease in its tracks. And, while routine eye exams are vital in detecting systemic eye diseases and preventing sight loss, traditional non-dilated retinal examination methods typically capture less than 12 percent of the retina.
Optomap® Retinal Exams in Grand Forks, ND
At Lifetime Vision, we go deeper. Our eye doctors provide comprehensive eye exams, such as Optomap® retinal exams, which help us diagnose eye disease as early as possible for patients of all ages, including young children. Optomap® technology captures more than 80 percent of the retina at the click of a button, providing a 200-degree, high-definition digital image with maximum clarity. This non-invasive eye exam takes less than five minutes and is completely painless. In addition, there are zero side effects, such as what a patient experiences with traditional dilating drops. After an Optomap® retinal exams at Lifetime Vision, you don’t need to have someone else drive you home, nor do you need to take the rest of the day off from work or other activities. You can return to work or resume other activities immediately following your exam.
Your eye doctor in Grand Forks will be able to use the information from the Optomap® retinal exam to determine the heath of your eyes. If there are any unusual conditions or anomalies found, your doctor can then implement further testing to diagnose the issue and provide appropriate treatment options.
Intensive Eye Exams at Lifetime Vision
At Lifetime Vision, patients can be assured they are receiving the very best eye care available. Following are some of the tests and services that are provided:
Comprehensive Eye Exams
Comprehensive eye exams at Lifetime Vision include the Optomap® retinal exam mentioned above, in addition to other tests. The eye doctor will test vision and look for any signs of vision impairment, glaucoma, color blindness, tunnel vision, macular degeneration, and more. In addition, if you wear glasses or contact lenses, the eye doctor will review the fit, making sure that any corrective lenses are not causing problems themselves.
Disease Detection and Diagnosis
The eye doctor will specifically look for any signs of eye disease. If anything is found, then the doctor will run diagnostics to help determine what might be the underlying cause. In some cases, there are overall health conditions that can lead to eye disease. For example, diabetes can lead to retinal neuropathy. For this reason, your eye doctor may review your general health with you, asking questions about potentially problematic lifestyle choices, such as smoking or drinking. This is all part of the comprehensive eye care treatment that you can expect from Lifetime Vision in Grand Forks.
Eye emergencies can happen at any time to persons of any age. If you experience an eye emergency during business hours, you can call Lifetime Vision and be seen right away, even if you don’t have an appointment. Of course, eye emergencies after hours should be treated at an emergency room. However, you can always call Lifetime Vision for help with advice for immediate treatment and what steps to take, depending on the circumstances of the emergency.
