The exam – Computerized, comprehensive eye examinations, complete with a detailed history, visual acuity, refraction for eye-glass prescriptions, internal and external examinations, evaluation for contact lens candidacy, and glaucoma testing.
At the time of your eye examination, Dr. Chung will determine whether a dilation is indicated, depending on personal history, family history, age, symptoms, and significant findings. The dilation may last a few hours, but you will be able to drive home; only your close reading vision may be blurred for a few hours.
LASIK Consultation/ Co-Management
Part of your initial examination would be to determine whether you are an ideal candidate for LASIK or other refractive surgeries. Prescription, astigmatism, bifocal, age, pupil diameter, corneal thickness, and dryness are all factors in determining this. If it is determined that you are ideal, we will refer you to the appropriate surgeon, and be involved in the pre and post-op visits in your continuum of care.
Ocular Surface Disease Treatment
Conditions like conjunctivitis (pink eye) or other ocular infections, inflammation, allergies, pressure, pain, and/or redness can be treated with medical prescriptions provided by this office.
Contact Lens Fitting
The latest (3rd generation) of disposable contact lenses are our specialty here – high oxygen transmission silicone hydrogel contacts. They are available in all modalities – from daily disposable to monthly, and for all prescriptions – including astigmatism and bifocal prescriptions. Besides the high oxygen, these lenses are more comfortable, wetter, have more flexible wearing schedules, and are healthier for the eyes.
Besides a fantastic selection of designer frame manufacturers, this office fits a multitude of prescription optical lenses, including higher index materials for high prescriptions (thinner and lighter), transitions lenses, customized sunclips, and the latest in free-form progressive lenses for bifocal prescriptions that virtually eliminate distortion.
