Comprehensive Medical Eye Exams
The Health of Your Eyes Matters
Sometimes we can take our eyes and our vision for granted. But we only have two eyes and vision is a precious thing. So when it comes to adult medical eye care, it’s important to schedule your annual eye exam. That’s why Conestoga Eye offers comprehensive medical eye exams for adults in Lancaster and Hershey, PA.
At Conestoga Eye, our experienced team of ophthalmologists and optometrists provide treatments for a wide range of common medical issues that affect the eyes, while also helping you manage and monitor your eye health. Using the latest innovative techniques and a caring patient-focused approach we can help you maintain your vision and see clearly for years to come.
An adult medical eye exam looks at the health of your eyes, your visual system, and the potential causes of your blurry vision beyond refractive error. Our providers have years of experience seeing and treating patients with diabetes, markers for glaucoma, cataracts, double vision, and more.
We have the knowledge and expertise to provide you the personalized care you need.
Diabetic Eye Exams
Diabetics or adults with high A1C numbers benefit greatly from an annual medical eye exam. Changes in your sugars can result in changes with your eyes. Through a medical eye exam, our optometrists are able to make sure your changes in your vision do not lead to vision loss. These exams are covered by your medical insurance.
Strabismus in Adults & Double Vision
Adults with strabismus and double vision (binocular vision disorder) would be scheduled to see Dr. Silbert or Dr. Woodall, depending on their goals. Patients seeking surgery will see Dr. Silbert for a full exam and discussion of options. Patients who have double vision corrected with prism in their glasses or a prism patch would see Dr. Woodall for a prism refraction (not covered by insurance).
Thyroid Eye Exams
Thyroid Eye Disease (TED) is an autoimmune disorder that involves the muscles and fatty tissues behind your eye. The most common symptoms of TED are dry eyes, bulging eyes, blurry vision, double vision, swollen eyelids, and difficulty closing the lids. Dr. Silbert and our team of experts will be able to diagnose your condition with an eye exam and help you create the best plan to manage your symptoms.
The providers at Conestoga Eye also work with local Diabetes and Endocrinology providers in prescribing Tepezza.
Eye Exams for Glaucoma Management
Glaucoma is a common eye condition that can lead to vision loss. It occurs when fluid pressure inside the eye increases, damaging the optic nerve.
Our optometrists are able to monitor your glaucoma or glaucoma risk factors through annual medical exams, including tests to monitor and diagnose the condition, as well as non-surgical glaucoma management. We understand that glaucoma eye disease can be a serious condition and strive to provide the highest level of care for our patients. We take the time to explain your diagnosis and treatment options, so you know exactly what to expect from your care.
