Our Services

Comprehensive Eye Care

We provide comprehensive eye exams including the use of digital retinal imaging and visual field testing. Our doctor fits many types of contact lenses including contacts for astigmatism (toric), multifocal & bifocal contact lenses, RGP (rigid gas permeable) lenses and colored contact lenses. Dr. Fries also participates in InfantSEE, a public health program providing comprehensive infant eye and vision assessment within the first year of life regardless of a family’s income or access to insurance coverage. The American Optometric Association recommends eye examinations for infants between 6 and 12 months of age, at 3 years, and every 1-3 years for school-aged children. The first eye exam within the child’s first year of life will be provided free of charge as part of the InfantSEE program. Visit infantsee.org or call our office today for more information.

We have the most sophisticated examination equipment in the country to assist us in your complete vision evaluation, including:

Marco EPIC 5100 – computerized refracting system designed to increase efficiency and accuracy in determining your prescription.

The Marco Retinal Thickness Analyzer (RTA) – a new type of state-of-the-art scanning laser ophthalmoscope used in the diagnosis and treatment decisions for glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and other retinal and optic nerve anomalies.

Marco 3-D Wave – provides a High Definition Refraction that allows for the minimization of aberrations in your optical correction in contact lenses and glasses to allow the maximization of your visual system.

Centervue DRS Retinal Camera – DRS in the new frontier of non-mydriatic, digital retinal imaging. Its compact, ergonomic design and low power flash help ensure patient comfort.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Eye Disease

During your comprehensive eye exam you will be tested for glaucoma, cataracts, retinopathy from diabetes and hypertension, and macular degeneration. Dr. Fries is also available to treat ocular emergencies including foreign body removals, conjunctivitis (“pink eye”) and eye allergies and is able to work you into the schedule as the need arises. Should an ocular emergency occur after hours, the doctor is on call to handle the situation. Dr. Fries is active in the diagnosis and treatment of dry eye including the use of Restasis and punctal plugs. Dr. Fries is also able to prescribe Latisse, the first and only FDA-approved prescription treatment of inadequate or not enough eyelashes – growing them longer, fuller and darker.

 

Laser Vision Surgery Consultation
and Co-Management

Dr. Fries provides pre- and post-op care for our patients who elect refractive surgery, including LASIK and PRK. First, we will conduct a thorough exam to determine if you are a good candidate for laser vision correction. Should we decide laser eye surgery is for you, we will then refer you to a surgeon who we have worked with and are confident in their results. Finally, your post-surgical follow-up will be done in our office.
