Why Routine Eye Exams Matter
Regular eye exams are crucial for timely intervention, safeguarding your vision, managing health conditions, and monitoring medication side effects. We work hard not to understate the power of early detection and prevention, encouraging all our patients to visit us for their regularly scheduled eye exams.
Connecting Eye Health to Overall Health
Your eyes can be a helpful window to your overall health. Conditions like lupus, hypertension, stroke, and diabetes can all have an impact on your vision. Dr. Gajda’s expertise extends beyond the eyes to help you maintain holistic, whole-body health and well-being by paying attention to the symptoms that other conditions may be causing.

Our experienced optometrists offer comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for eye infections. We understand that symptoms can appear suddenly, which is why we provide emergency eye care services when you need them most.

Eye Conditions & Diseases We Can Help Manage
We have the expertise to identify, manage, and treat a wide spectrum of eye conditions and diseases. Our commitment to your eye health is unwavering, and we want to help your eyes stay healthy for years to come. While we’re equipped to handle many conditions, we also collaborate with recommended surgeons and specialists when necessary to provide quality care.
Our practice takes pride in being a medical optometrist. We don’t just correct vision; we focus on the overall health of your eyes and can offer solutions that include prescription eye drops and oral medications when required.
Take a look at some of the specific eye conditions we can help you manage.
Amblyopia, commonly known as a “lazy eye,” is a condition where one eye has weaker vision than the other due to improper visual development during childhood. Our experienced optometrists can diagnose and treat amblyopia, often through the use of eye patches, vision therapy, or prescription eyewear.
Cataracts can be a normal part of the aging process, leading to clouding of the eye’s natural lens. Our practice specializes in diagnosing and managing cataracts. If necessary, we can refer you to a trusted surgeon for cataract removal surgery.
Diabetic Eye Disease
Glaucoma is a progressive eye condition characterized by increased pressure within the eye, which can damage the optic nerve and sometimes lead to vision loss. Our optometrists can help with glaucoma diagnosis and management, including the use of eye drops and other therapies.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) can lead to central vision loss as you age. Our practice offers comprehensive care in managing AMD, including treatments and lifestyle recommendations to help slow its progression. We’re dedicated to preserving your vision and enhancing your quality of life.
Evaluating Eye Health with Diagnostic Technology
We recognize the importance of diagnostic technology in safeguarding your eye health. Our commitment to modern equipment allows us to provide precise and comprehensive assessments. These technologies not only aid in initial diagnoses but also enable us to monitor changes in your vision–and overall health—over time.
The eyes can serve as a window to your complete wellness, revealing visible changes that allow us to noninvasively assess blood vessels and blood flow. This becomes particularly critical in monitoring health fluctuations and potential medication side effects resulting from medical conditions such as lupus, diabetes, and heart disease.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) provides highly detailed, cross-sectional images of your retinal layers. This noninvasive imaging technique helps us detect and monitor conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy, allowing for early intervention and personalized treatment.
Fundus photography captures high-resolution images of the back of your eye, including the retina and optic nerve. This tool aids in the diagnosis and monitoring of various eye conditions, enabling us to track changes in your eye health over time and make informed decisions about your care.
We offer two types of tonometry to measure your eye pressure:
- Goldmann Tonometer: This traditional method involves using an instrument to gently touch the surface of your eye. It’s a reliable way to measure intraocular pressure and screen for conditions like glaucoma.
- Non-Contact Tonometry (NCT): NCT provides a pressure reading without direct contact with your eye. It’s a quick and comfortable way to assess eye pressure and is often used as a preliminary screening tool.
Visual Field Testing
Visual field testing assesses your peripheral vision, helping us detect conditions like glaucoma, which can lead to gradual vision loss. It is also helpful for us to use on patients with hypertension, diabetes, and individuals who have suffered from a stroke to help us learn more about what the right treatment plan might look like.
