From Routine to Advanced, We Handle it All

Our patients find it comforting that the people examining their eyes are board-certified ophthalmologists as well as trained optometrists, who work with a five-star team of opticians, technicians and support staff. Patients know if a problem shows up, a fellowship-trained subspecialist in ophthalmology is in the same practice, ready to help. They know they can easily reach a Sabates Eye Centers location, and they won’t need to go anywhere else. From your first visit onward, we’re here to take care of you and your family. 

 

If you’re like most people, you’ve thought about seeing an eye doctor for some time. We’re glad the process has led you to this website. Regardless of age, or whether your vision is bothering you, look no further. A visit to Sabates Eye Centers for a thorough eye exam is an important first step in helping you see your best.

 

Why Get an Eye Exam? 

It’s pretty simple. Even if you’re not experiencing vision problems or discomfort, getting an eye exam is the smartest thing you can do. This is your vision we’re talking about. If there are signs of a problem, the sooner an optometrist or ophthalmologist can detect and treat it, the more good years your eyes will give you. Protect your eyes. See your best.

SABATES EYE CENTERS’ COMPREHENSIVE EYE CARE

Relax. It’s painless! Our comprehensive eye exam allows a Sabates Eye Centers optometrist to examine your eyes from all angles to look for common vision problems and eye diseases. Here’s what to expect:

  

  • Dilation: After a few drops in your eyes, the pupils will widen or “dilate.” This allows the doctor to examine the retina with a powerful magnifying lens and check for any signs of damage or problems, like diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration or glaucoma.
  • Tonometry: Think of it as a pressure test. With a quick puff of air or gentle pressure applied to the eye, the doctor measures your eye pressure for signs of glaucoma. (Numbing drops are available, if you want them.)
  • Field test: This visual test measures your peripheral vision, another potential indicator if glaucoma is present.
  • Acuity test: “Read the top line, ma’am/sir.” The tried-and-true eye chart test measures how well you see at different distances, indicating healthy vision, near- or farsightedness and/or astigmatism. 

  

That’s it. You’re done. Your pupils will return to normal in a few hours. And we’ll both have a clear picture of your eyes and what to do next – if anything!
