A Focus on Vision-Medical Care Can Preserve a Patient’s Gift of Sight


What is vision-medical care?


Vision-medical care focuses on the health and medical wellness of the eyes and vision system. While general optometry practices deal with vision screenings and correction, the vision-medical specialty clinics at Dunes Eye Consultants provide medically driven vision care.


Many eye diseases cause few symptoms – some don’t produce notable changes in vision and can go undetected for years. Exams with a focus on vision-medical care can help identify diseases in their early stages when they are most treatable.


As one of the first clinics in the region to offer SightSync® testing and neurolens® treatment, which can address computer vision syndrome, concussion and TBI rehabilitation, chronic eye fatigue, headaches and migraines.


Dunes Eye Consultants uses advanced, state-of-the-art technology to provide diagnostic evaluations and treatments for patients of all ages – from pediatric to geriatric – with eye conditions, including cataracts, ocular surface disease, glaucoma, dry eye disease, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and more.

How often should I have a comprehensive eye exam?

Most health care providers recommend well-vision exams annually, with regular visits becoming more important as you get older. If you have existing vision problems or eye health issues, more frequent visits may be recommended.

If you wear contact lenses on a regular basis, more frequent visits can help ensure your corneas – the clear lenses covering your eyes – remain healthy. Learn how you can toss your contacts with iDesign LASIK vision correction.

Children should have their first eye exam by the time they're six months to identify potential problems that occur soon after birth, and again before first grade to make sure vision problems don’t affect their adjustment to school.
