How Eye Trends is Changing Eye Care in Conroe, Texas
In 1985 Dr. Inns and Toups established their optometry practice and have made it their primary goal to bring patients the best vision and eye health, while using the latest technology. They work hard to get to know their patients and gain patients’ trust and confidence. Their friendly staff is happy to help with scheduling appointments and insurance utilization. Same day appointments are also available.
Eye Trends provides routine eye care and same day glasses and contact lenses. They also provide care for a wide range of conditions, including
- Hypertensive and diabetic exams
- Eye infections and injuries
- Dry eye evaluation and treatment
- Co-management of cataract and LASIK surgeries
Eye Trends has top of the line diagnostic tests and treatments available to provide the best and most accurate care. These are less invasive and time saving. Some of these technologies include the following:
Digital Retinal Imaging and OCT Scans
The latest advancement in imaging technology, the Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), uses light to provide higher resolution images of the back of the eye. Optomap images can also provide a wide angle photograph of the retina for future comparisons.
Visual Field Testing
A visual field test measures your peripheral vision and can help with the diagnosis of conditions such as glaucoma or brain tumors.
Dry Eye Evaluation
Scans of the meibomian glands in the eyelid and tear quality evaluation can be diagnosing the underlying cause of dry eye symptoms. Once the cause is known, the best treatment recommendations can be made.
Dry Eye Treatment
Many treatments are available and can be initiated in office with care continued at home. One new technology available is treatment by Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). This non painful procedure stimulates the glands to produce better quality tears that do not evaporate as quickly. It has been used in various fields of medicine, such as dermatology, but has only recently been available for eye care. Symptoms improve after just a few hours.
For your summer, consider a new pair of sunglasses. UV in sunlight can lead to eyestrain and conditions such as cataracts, skin cancer, or benign growths on the whites of the eyes. They offer a wide variety of designer sunglasses including Maui Jim, Costa del Mar, Oakley, and Ray Ban. Make sure to get polarized lenses, which help reduce glare off surfaces such as wet roads, rivers, and the lake.
While out having fun this summer, stay up to date with your yearly checks ups with your optometrist. They can recommend treatments for eye strain, make lens recommendations based on your visual needs, check for eye diseases and much more. When you visit Eye Trends, you and your doctor can develop solutions with which you are comfortable.
