Here are some of the leading eye care services that Dr. Forgacs, with the assistance of his talented and compassionate staff, offers patients.
Eye and Vision Exams -- Our goal is to diagnose your family’s eye or vision problems as early as possible. That’s why we promote the annual exams. Your children might also need an appointment with your eye doctor in order to perform better in the classroom or to take part in organized sports.
Contact Lens Exams and Hard to Fit Contacts -- There are a variety of eye conditions that can make contact lenses difficult -- but not impossible -- to fit. We’ll work with you to provide specialty contact lenses or other eyewear solutions.
LASIK Eye Surgery -- This can be a quick, painless and permanent solution to your vision problems. This laser-based technique has been used to successfully correct myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and other disorders. Let’s see if its right for you.
Ortho-K Vision Correction -- Officially known as orthokeratology, this is a vision correction technology that involves reshaping the cornea. This non-surgical technique is an option for many people who can’t have LASIK surgery for various reasons (or who don’t want to undergo surgery). It might be an ideal treatment for you.
Vision Therapy -- Some vision problems can be corrected or improved without surgery. When that’s the case, we’ll work with you to strengthen your eyes and enhance the neurological connection between the brain and your eyes with a set of custom-tailored vision exercises. Vision therapy can address such disorders as double vision, lazy eye, crossed vision, and dyslexia. Through low vision therapy, we can work on optimizing failing vision due to various causes such as diabetes, hypertension, macular degeneration, optic neuropathy, albinism, and color blindness.
Computer Vision Treatment -- Many people spend their workdays and off-time hours staring at computer screens. This can cause serious eye strain, blurry vision, headaches, and other related problems. Dr. Forgacs can diagnose your problems and put you on a treatment plan to relieve the effects of computer vision and eye related stress.
Frames and Sunglasses Fittings -- Our experienced and talented licensed optician, Cindy Schafran, L.O., will help you select the frames that complement your face and personality. We’ll also provide you with prescription sunglasses and the new Blutech filtered lenses to reduce computer eye strain.
