At Nova Eye Care Center, our primary goal is to provide you with quality and thorough eye care services with the latest technology. We are here to help you see better. The Optometrist will assess the health of your eyes to screen for eye diseases. The eye exam generally includes a measurement and prescription for glasses when necessary. We also offer complete contact lens care and Lasik co-management as well as treatment of eye diseases, glaucoma management, cataracts, diabetic eye evaluation and other eye emergencies. We accept adults and children patients ages 5 and up.
Comprehensive Eye Exam
Comprehensive eye exam is a thorough assessment of your visual health by an optometrist along with the determination of a prescription for glasses if necessary. You will also be screened for any eye disorders such as allergies, dry eyes, glaucoma, cataracts and diabetes. This usually involves dilation of the pupils, which will results in blurry vision at near and light sensitivity for a few hours. Vision screenings that are performed by a school nurse or your employer are not the same as a comprehensive eye exam an eye doctor. A thorough eye exam by an optometrist is recommended every year even if you have no problems.
Contact Lens Fitting
Our office fits and carries most contact lens brands, including but not limited to ACUVUE®, Bausch & Lomb, CibaVision (AIROPTIX®, DAILIES®, FreshLook®) and CooperVision™ (Avaira®, Biofinity®, Proclear®) contact lenses. Contact lenses are a medical device and require a prescription from your doctor. To renew or change a prescription, an annual eye exam with a contact lens fitting by the doctor is required. It is illegal for retailers to dispense contact lenses beyond the allotted refills or expiration date, or to make any other changes to the prescription. This policy is regulated by the Federal Government. You can now order contact lenses online through our website.
We fit a wide variety of contact lenses including hard to fit contact lens cases.
- Soft contact lenses
