We will take the time to educate you on your exam procedures and findings, so that you can make informed choices concerning your eye health and overall care. We partner with like-minded surgeons and health care facilities to ensure you get the best possible care.

Our eye care services include:
• Adult and Pediatric Eye Heath Examinations

• Myopia (Near-Sightedness) Control for Children

Depending on your age, health and occupation, the American Optometric Association recommends a comprehensive eye examination every 1-2 years.

A thorough eye exam includes an evaluation of the visual system and eye health. A comprehensive eye exam can detect systemic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol and neurologic disorders.

If vision correction is needed, options include glasses, contact lenses and laser vision correction. You can be confident that our doctors will help you make the right choice and offer the appropriate services, such as pre- and post-op LASIK care, necessary medical treatment or vision correction with contact lenses or glasses.

Myopia (Near-Sightedness) Control - What Is Myopia Control?
Although an outright cure for nearsightedness has not been discovered, our doctors can now offer a number of treatments that may be able to slow the progression of myopia.

These treatments can induce changes in the structure and focusing of the eye to reduce stress and fatigue associated with the development and progression of nearsightedness.

Why should you be interested in myopia control?
Because slowing the progression of myopia may keep your child from developing high levels of nearsightedness that require thick, corrective eyeglasses and have been associated with serious eye problems later in life, such as early Cataracts, Glaucoma or even a Detached Retina. Currently, Three Types of Treatment are Showing Promise for Controlling Myopia:
• Atropine Eye Drops
• Multifocal Contact Lenses
• Orthokeratology ("Ortho-K")

Low Vision For The Partially Sighted
What is low vision?
Basically, "low vision" describes significant visual impairment that can't be corrected fully with glasses, contact lenses, medication or eye surgery. It includes:

Loss of best-corrected visual acuity(BVCA) to worse than 20/70 in the better eye or significant visual field loss, such as Tunnel vision (lack of vision in the periphery) and blind spots.

Legal blindness, In North America is defined as: 20/200 or less central visual acuity in the better eye with best possible correction, or a visual field of 20º or less.
 
Eye diseases are a common cause of low vision:
• Hazy, blurry vision can result from Cataracts.
• Blurred or partially obscured central vision is typical of Macular Degeneration.
• Diabetic Retinopathy causes blind spots, blurriness and visual distortions.
• Poor peripheral vision is a hallmark of Glaucoma.
• Retinitis Pigmentosa reduces peripheral vision and the ability to see in the dark.
• Light sensitivity and loss of contrast are other symptoms of these and other diseases.
• Heredity and Eye Injuries can also result in Low Vision

What To Do About Low Vision:
If you have a vision impairment that interferes with your ability to perform everyday activities and enjoy life, your first step is to see one of our eye care professionals for a complete eye exam. Poor vision that cannot be corrected with eyeglasses or contact lenses could be the first sign of a serious eye disease such as Age-Related Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma or Retinitis Pigmentosa. Or it could mean you are developing a Cataract that needs removal. Whatever the case, it's wise to take action before further vision loss occurs. If our doctors finds that you have vision loss that cannot be corrected adequately with standard eye wear, medical treatment or surgery, he will help you take the next steps toward coping with your new situation.

Our doctors completed a post-doctoral specialty in low vision. He will take his time to thoroughly evaluate the degree and type of vision loss you have, prescribe appropriate low vision aids such as lighted handheld magnifiers, digital desktop magnifiers and bioptic telescopes, and help you learn how to use them. Newer options include handheld digital magnifiers for shopping or eating out, as well as software that simplifies computer use with magnification and text-to-speech features.

Our doctors can also recommend non-optical adaptive devices, such as large-face printed material, audio recordings, special light fixtures and signature guides for signing checks and documents. Special eye wear with tinted UV filters can help with light sensitivity and heighten contrast. If necessary, our doctors can refer you to a mental health professional and/or mobility coach to help you cope with your vision loss.


Dry Eyes
Dry eye is one of the most under-diagnosed ocular diseases, and yet it is the most common reason why patients go see their eye care professional.

Dry eye is a multifactorial disease of the tears and ocular surface that results in symptoms of discomfort, visual disturbance, and tear film instability with potential damage to the ocular surface. It is accompanied by increased osmolarity of the tear film and inflammation of the ocular surface.


Integrative Eye Care
At Dr. Stephen Nevett and Associates, we believe in alternative treatments that have been scientifically validated. As such, we offer interventions that have been supported by evidence based medicine and the peer reviewed literature. Integrative medicine "cherry picks" the very best, scientifically validated therapies from both conventional and CAM systems. Two such examples, are vitamin supplementation for Age Related Macular Degeneration (AREDS2 Multicenter Trial) and Omega-3 supplementation for the treatment of Dry Eye (Effect of Oral Re-esterfied Omega-3 Nutritional Supplementation on Dry-Eye Disease). As with any type of intervention, these disease entities and their related treatments, require close monitoring and follow-up with your eye care professional. They may also require care that involves a multidisciplinary healthcare team. Age Related Eye Disease Study 2


Laser Vision Correction (LASIK)
We can help you determine if laser vision correction is right for you. We will work together with a local surgeon to provide both pre- and post-operative care.


Computer Related Vision Problems
