Comprehensive Eye Exams:
Your exam is more than to just get you an eyeglass prescription, it is to ensure the health of your eyes. When we do eye exams, we refuse to cut corners. We always schedule ample time so you will never feel rushed.
Our comprehensive eye examinations check your eyes inside and out for glaucoma, cataracts, as well as high blood pressure, diabetes and other systemic diseases. Our doctors highly recommend that patients have the retinal photos taken during the screening process for a nominal fee. This gives the doctors a much clearer look inside the eye for health screening.
Your vision is carefully evaluated and we pride ourselves on the accuracy of our eyeglass and contact prescriptions. Both prescriptions are valid for one year to ensure the best vision possible for our patients.
We take note of your eyes and your lifestyle when prescribing contacts. Our doctors and technicians work with you to find the best fit, material, and prescription. We have been fitting specialty contact lenses for many years and have seen incredible improvements in comfort and fit. Multi-focals, gas permeables, and CRT lenses have all made significant advances.
Allergies can be particularly annoying to contact lens wearers. In the past many people had to quit wearing their lenses during the allergy season. New lens materials and allergy medications have made it possible for these people to eliminate itchy eyes.
Remember when you had five frames to choose from? The options are now endless at Chandler Eyecare with the wide variety of frame and lens options available. Our experienced opticians are happy to walk you through the process of choosing the right frame, determining what lenses best fit your needs, and properly fitting them for optimal comfort and vision.

We develop individualized treatment plans that can include ongoing screening, treatment, medications, and surgery. If ever your health needs specialized attention, our office will place you in the care of a nearby specialist who can further treat your condition.
Cataracts: The natural lens in the eye gradually becomes less clear as we get older. Our office can diagnose and manage cataract care. When the cataract affects the vision to the extent that you cannot read or see distant objects comfortably, we will recommend cataract surgery. Our office co-manages with cataract specialists that are proven experts in cataract surgery.
Glaucoma: We always monitor for glaucoma during routine eye examinations. Tests include checking the pressure of the eye, screening for peripheral vision defects and analyzing the appearance of the optic nerve. Most forms of glaucoma are successfully treated with eye drops.
Diabetes: Diabetic patients should have a dilated retinal examination each year. We have the latest instruments used to detect changes in the back of the eye. If we discover advancing diabetic eye disease that can be treated or needs further evaluation, we will refer you for consultation and further testing to a retinal specialist.
Seeing clearly is not enough. For many people, especially children, reading and hand-eye coordination tasks can be very difficult. The act of sight includes ones eyes, but it also includes the neurological activity that processes the visual information. Throwing a ball or skiing down a hill, is a learned activity to do either well takes practice. Those who do it best are those who started learning at the earliest age. Sight plays an important role in the learning of these activities. Sight is the steering mechanism it is the main activity that provides feedback regarding what really is happening. We provide Vision Therapy to help individuals learn how to process visual information and develop better hand-eye coordination skills.
