The traditional eye exam isn't without its merits. Methods such as eye chart reading, eye-muscle movement scrutiny, and rousing games of "made you blink" have served optometrists well for years––and doctors Eric Brooker and Wanwalee Charoenchote of Advanced Vision Institute still employ them. But the doctors also stay hip to up-and-coming eye care trends, which is why they enlist contemporary technology during HD eye exams. These exams incorporate high-definition eye scanning and imaging, which can better identify impending cataracts, night-vision issues, dry eyes, visual floaters, and distorted vision caused by trauma.
But the optometrists don't stick strictly to eye exams; their services span everything from LASIK treatments to custom-fitting for contacts. Plus, their office sells glasses and contacts on-site, offering up practical yet stylish frames from big names such as Prada and Coach, and contacts from manufacturers such as Acuvue and Bausch & Lomb.
