Annual Eye Exams
Luu Eye Care provides comprehensive eye and contact lens examinations for the entire family. We recommend having an eye examination once a year to maintain the optimum health of your eyes. During a complete eye exam, the doctors recommend a dilated fundus exam for all patients to thoroughly examine the important structures inside the eye. Special drops are applied to the eyes to enlarge the pupil temporarily so the doctor can check for diabetes, high blood pressure, glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, retinal detachment, and other eye diseases. You will be dilated yearly if you have diabetes, take certain medications, have experienced recent trauma or decrease in vision, or if you have other risk factors. Patients who are young and healthy may be dilated every other year.
Dilated Fundus Exam. If this is your first time having the eyes dilated, you may want to bring someone with you to drive you home. However, most patients can usually drive by themselves afterwards. You may experience some blurriness at distance, but mostly at near, for approximately four hours. Please bring your sunglasses as the light will be bright outside, but we always provide temporary sunglasses if you do not have any.
Contact Lens Fitting
Our doctors have the expertise and state-of-the-art technology to custom fit contact lenses to provide our patients with the best comfort and vision. Luu Eye Care Optometry offers a wide selection of soft contact lenses, toric contact lenses for astigmatism, color contact lenses, multifocal contact lenses, and rigid gas permeable contact lenses. Luu Eye Care has contact lenses from the best brands possible including Acuvue, Bausch and Lomb, Ciba Vision, CooperVision, Boston, FluoroPerm and many others.
Some medical eye conditions that prevent patients from achieving good vision can benefit from very specialized scleral contact lenses. These eye conditions include keratoconus(a corneal degeneration that causes a gradual bulging of the cornea into the shape of a cone), post surgical corneal grafts, irregular astigmatism, and other corneal changes. Our eye doctors use a combination of corneal mapping with the Atlas Corneal Topographer along with the latest lens designs and materials to skillfully fit these patients to achieve their optimum vision.
Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is becoming increasingly common. Myopia usually develops in childhood and then gets progressively worse as we get older. While there is no cure for myopia, there are treatments available to help improve your vision and slow its progression.
MiSight1 Day is a daily wear, single use contact lens that has been FDA-approved to slow the progression of myopia.
Luu Eye Care partners with prominent ophthalmologic medical specialists to provide outstanding cataract surgery, Lasik surgery, corneal surgery, retinal surgery, and cosmetic eyelid surgery.
If you require or request any special services, our doctors will evaluate you and assess which specialist would be the most appropriate for you. Our professional and premier network of trusted ophthalmologic physicians can address all of your surgical eyecare needs.
Medical treatment of Eye Diseases
Luu Eye Care Optometry provides extensive and professional vision care. The doctors at Luu Eye Care are trained and licensed to diagnose and treat many eye conditions of the anterior segment (front surface of the eye) as well as the posterior segment (inner surface of the eye) utilizing advanced eyecare equipment. This special technology includes digital photography of the anterior segment and retina, computerized scans of the entire eye, threshold visual field analysis, and corneal topography for diagnosis and documentation. Our doctors routinely manage many vision health conditions including diabetes, high blood pressure, macular degeneration, keratoconus, corneal dystrophies, and all other eye diseases. Our doctors are also licensed to manage and treat glaucoma, eye infections, corneal abrasions and ulcers, and remove foreign objects from the eyes.
Dry Eye Treatment
We understand that dry, itchy, or burning eyes can be a painful irritation that affects you throughout the day.
Dry eye is a condition that affects many people and occurs when there are insufficient tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. Tears are necessary for maintaining the health of the front surface of the eye and for providing clear vision. People with dry eyes either do not produce enough tears or have a poor quality of tears.
Our doctors can diagnose and treat your condition with a customized plan, including prescription medication or punctal plugs.
