Eye examinations

We recommend that you have your eyes tested at least every two years to check for degradation of your eyesight and to screen for disease. Our experienced optometrists can help identify any vision problems you may have. We give the most comprehensive eye exams available, using the latest technology to create the right prescription and to check your eyes' general health. We will test for glaucoma, cataracts and other diseases that can affect your vision and health. After our exam we discuss possible corrective options, including:
  • Traditional lenses 
  • Contact lenses 
  • Wavefront surgery 
  • VISX
Whether it is time for a new pair of glasses or you need to have optic surgery, the professional optometrists at our office in Kapaa, HI can give you the information and advice you need to make eye care choices that will improve how you see the world.

Cataract surgery

Cataract surgery is usually suggested when the lens of one or both of your eyes has losing its transparency and your vision gets foggy. This is a common condition, with odds of it occurring increasing with age.
Our surgeons can perform cataract surgery with minimal discomfort, on an outpatient basis. The success rate with cataract surgery is greater than 90 percent.
The doctor removes the damaged lens and implants a new, permanent plastic lens. At the time of surgery, the doctor will:
  • Put you under local anesthesia 
  • Dilate your pupils 
  • Remove the clouded lens 
  • Implant a new, clear artificial lens
The patient wears an eye patch for several hours after optic surgery to help protect your new lens. Once the eye patch is removed, your vision should improve and your eye should heal in under four weeks. It is best to avoid contact sports during this recovery period.
If you think you may be suffering from cataracts, call our office in Kapaa, HI today to schedule an appointment so that you can be on the road to recovery as soon as possible.

Optic surgery and prescriptions for glaucoma

Glaucoma screenings are a routine part of our eye exams. If you test positive for glaucoma, we'll be glad to discuss the treatment option that is best for you. Glaucoma is the third-most common cause of blindness. The good news is that if it is caught in its early stages, it can be treated.
Glaucoma is brought on by a variety of diseases that attack the optic nerve. It is estimated that as many as one in 250 people may suffer from glaucoma sometime in their lives. The evidence is that hereditary factors figure into glaucoma, so if any family members have been treated for the disease, we strongly advise you to be screened for glaucoma.
Glaucoma can be treated with the following:
  • Laser surgery for reducing pressure on the eye and restoring vision. 
  • Eye drops prescribed, if the diagnosis happens in an early stage.
Medical marijuana has also been used to relieve symptoms and to relieve ocular pressure. Remember, early detection is key in successful treatment of glaucoma symptoms.
If you are suffering from problems with your eyes, give us a call in Kapaa, HI today to schedule an appointment. It is our mission to help you enjoy clear vision.
