Are you a resident of Fairborn and in need of help with certain eye conditions? Come see us at Jackson Eye. Dr. Jackson will conduct an exam and determine the best course of action. Here are some of our services.
Contact Lens Exams
Some people prefer to wear contacts instead of glasses. That's not a problem for us. We'll test your vision to see what kind of contacts you need, and then we'll measure your eyes to determine how large and strong a contact lens you'll need. It's our goal to create contact lenses that are comfortable for you to wear whenever you're out and about or at home.
You can get disposable ones, extended wear ones, rigid gas-permeable ones, and soft ones that you can wear each day. If you have an irregular cornea, there are scleral lenses. We'll go over all the options and help you choose the one that suits your lifestyle the best.
Diabetic Eye Exam
You need to stay on top of your vision if you have diabetes. Otherwise, you risk having permanent vision loss. Our eye doctor is dedicated to helping people with vision problems due to diabetes, but they also want to help prevent these conditions from even starting.
A diabetic eye exam will likely take longer than a regular eye exam. Aside from the usual chart readings and eye dilation, the eye doctor will check the blood vessels in your eyes and use an ophthalmoscope to get a look at your retinas. They may also want you to have optical coherence tomography to determine how thick the blood vessels in your eye are. After that, they will make sure you don't have cataracts or glaucoma.
Dry Eye Treatment
Dry eyes can affect a lot of people. While it's usually temporary, there are times when it becomes constant. We can start off with eye drops. If it looks like the problem is rooted in other conditions, you might have to go see a specialist.
Schedule Your Next Eye or Vision Exam
We conduct regular eye and vision exams that include having you read from a chart. This is to determine if you have near or farsightedness or normal vision. If you do have issues with your eyes, our staff can do everything from prescribing glasses to doing LASIK surgery to scleral lenses that gently correct the shape of your eyes while you sleep. At Jackson Eye, we want to make sure that the people of Fairborn have healthy eyes. If you live in the area, contact us at (770) 629-4351 for an appointment.
