At Moses Eyecare Center, we provide an array of vision care services. Our office offers a wide selection of eye care products, including eyewear, sunwear, and contact lenses to fit your specific eye care needs. Our mission is to provide quality service and products at reasonable pricing.
What to Expect
The best way to protect your vision is a yearly comprehensive eye exam. When you arrive at our office, you will be greeted with friendly faces. Each eye exam will use the latest state-of-the-art technology to assess your eye health. The doctor will inspect your eyes, answer questions, and discuss your eye care treatment options. In addition to determining your vision prescription, our doctor will test your color vision, depth perception, and check for any early indicators of possible eye conditions such as cataracts, retinal problems, and glaucoma.
Our goal is to have each patient leave satisfied knowing that they are receiving the best eye care products and services possible. We have answered a few frequently asked questions regarding eye exams below.
Why is my personal background important?
In order to better tailor the eye examination to your needs, our doctor may review any current vision problems, your general health, as well as discuss your hobbies and lifestyle requirements.
Why does the doctor ask me, “Which is better, one or two?”
While evaluating your prescription, the doctor will ask you to compare a series of lenses to determine which allows you to see clearer. As the differences become less noticeable, the doctor will be closer to finalizing your prescription. If you’re having a hard time choosing between the options, it means you’re almost done with this part of the exam!
Why is it necessary to know my blood pressure?
In addition to other health concerns, high blood pressure can affect the blood vessels in your eyes, which could lead to future vision problems.
Why am I asked to follow a light with my eyes?
This part of the exam helps determine how your pupils and eye muscles react and assists in gauging neurological function.
Is it necessary for the doctor to dilate my pupils during the exam?
Although pupil dilatation is not always necessary, the doctor may make this decision during your exam. If required, this painless process is like opening a door so the doctor can fully examine your retina. Dilation can assist in detecting diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and macular degeneration.
Unlike Optical Stores that simply sell you glasses, our comprehensive approach does not end with eyewear. Your total health today and tomorrow is our ongoing concern.
For your convenience we keep you advised of regularly scheduled appointments through our telephone recall system. We also handle eye injuries and infections as emergencies in our offices and we always have a doctor on call 24 hours a day.
Our low vision services include personal counseling, microscopic and telescopic aids, television and computerized reading systems. Often the cause of the loss of vision cannot be cured, but working in conjunction with physicians, occupational counselors, and government agencies, our goal is to utilize the remaining vision to its fullest potential.
Early diagnoses - as early as age 3 - and proper treatment may avoid the need for surgery or unnecessary loss of vision.
Ordinary eyeglass examinations do not look for these problems. Special testing and experienced professionals like those at Moses Eyecare Centers are critical in recognizing and caring for these deficiencies.
Our doctors are experienced in caring for complex cases, regularly succeeding with patients who were previously unable to wear lenses. A commitment to excellence and individual care has your health, good vision and satisfaction as our goal.

Am I a candidate for LASIK surgery?
Many people wonder if they are candidates for lasik, and this depends on your current vision, as well as the structure and health of your eye. Not all people are candidates, however we will meet with you and discuss your options.
In the LASIK procedure, instead of removing the surface of the cornea, a flap is created in the surface of the cornea and folded back, allowing the laser access to the tissue underneath without damaging the surface. The laser then changes the front of your eye to match your glasses prescription. Since the front surface of the eye is quick to heal, when the flap is laid back down it quickly reattaches itself to the tissue underneath.
Pre & Post-Operative Care
Moses Eyecare Centers will provide care before and after the surgery. Before you have the procedure, the doctors at Moses Eyecare will perform a comprehensive eye exam including a topography (see advance testing for more information). After the procedure, we will monitor your healing to make sure you have the best outcome possible.
