Comprehensive Eye Exams at Our West Des Moines Optometrist
During your eye exam, our West Des Moines optometrist will check your eyes to make sure they are healthy. Certain health conditions can be seen in your eyes, so we may be able to tell if you have pre diabetes, diabetes, high blood pressure, or other health problems. We will also check for specific eye health conditions. Glaucoma and macular degeneration can be managed well over time, when you work together with our optometrist to protect your eyes.
After we screen for these conditions, we can provide treatment options to manage the disease in a minimally invasive manner. You may be able to change glasses, incorporate nutrition supplements, or use eye drops to manage these conditions in their early stages.
If we feel your eye disease can no longer be managed in a conservative manner, we may recommend you for surgery. We will work together with your eye surgeon to perform all pre- and post-operative care, so you can visit a familiar place while preparing for the eye surgery.
Of course, we also perform a vision exam as part of your visit. We can issue or update a prescription for contact lenses or eyeglasses. If you are switching from glasses to contact lenses, we will measure your eyes, fit you for contacts, and help you transition successfully.
We aim to do everything possible to serve your eye health and your vision. We believe this difference makes us the best choice eye care provider for your entire family.
Pediatric Eye & Vision Exams
Our pediatric eye exams take into account the eye health of your little ones. If you know or suspect that your child has a vision problem, let us perform an exam. We can diagnose pediatric eye conditions, such as nearsightedness or farsightedness. We can fit your child with eyeglasses to restore vision accuracy.
Many children struggle to see clearly due to eye alignment and eye focusing problems. We can treat these eye conditions, to improve your child's vision.
Our optometrists in West Des Moines have five children, including two with vision problems. We understand firsthand how to work with children during eye care visits and just how important it is to protect eye health at every age. This makes us a first-choice care provider for children's eye exams.
At Lock Family Eye Care, our optometrist offers eye exams not only for West Des Moines residents, but for those of the surrounding communities. If you live in Des Moines Proper, Waukee, Urbandale, or Johnston, we invite you to call us today at (515) 267-1312 to reserve an appointment.
