Eye Care Services from Our Optometrists at Boca Family Eye Care
Comprehensive Eye Exams
Everyone needs regular eye exams. It’s important for adults to schedule eye exams to monitor their eye health and check for problems. Conditions that are often detected during eye exams include glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy. Early detection of these conditions allows for the widest range of treatment options and the best chance of slowing or reversing any symptoms.
Contact Lens Exam
The field of optometry changes quickly, and now many more patients are able to enjoy the flexibility of wearing contact lenses to correct their vision. Contact lens exams include tests that are not always performed in regular eye exams, so if you are considering contact lenses, be sure to let us know when you schedule your exam. This allows us to schedule the extra time required for contact lens evaluations and prescription updates.
Our goal is for you to have the best vision possible. In addition to our eye exams, we measure how your eyes see with wall and reading eye charts. This allows us to describe your vision using a fraction scale, where 20/20 represents normal vision. Based on your vision, our optometrists will recommend vision corrections such as traditional glasses, contact lenses, surgery, or other alternatives.
RGP & Scleral Lens Fittings
To find the right visual solution for a hard-to-fit patient, our doctors will analyze the eye’s surface. The latest digital imaging technology in eye care helps produce a map of the cornea. Our doctors at Boca Family Eye Care are experienced in hard-to-fit contact lenses and we have corneal topography mapping software. This is the first step in achieving clear vision.
Near and Farsightedness
Nearsightedness, known as myopia, makes it difficult to see objects far away and is caused when images are focused in front of the retina. Farsightedness, known as hyperopia, makes it difficult to see objects that are close and is caused when images are focused behind the retina. Both nearsightedness and farsightedness can be treated with corrective lenses such as glasses or contact lenses. If you are experiencing trouble seeing objects that are far away or close up, contact us today.
Glasses, more than ever, say a lot about your personality, style, and fashion. Selecting the right frames can be confusing and daunting, especially for first time patients. Our staff has a great deal of experience helping patients find the best frames for them – taking into account budget, medical needs, lifestyle, and appearance. We are here to help you find the perfect look, while also correcting your vision.
Computer Vision is a relatively new term within the optometry field and refers to eye problems associated with the prolonged use of computers and electronics that use a digital screen. Although it can be temporary, there are times when computer vision can strain the eyes to a degree that permanently affects your vision as well. An existing eye condition can worsen as the eyes try to focus and adjust to a computer screen and precautions should be taken if you spend long hours in front of a computer screen.
Astigmatism is one of the most common vision conditions; most people have some form of astigmatism. Astigmatism can be caused by an irregular shaped cornea or curvature of the lens, and can lead to blurred vision. Our examinations test for astigmatism using a phoropter and retinoscope, which measure refraction. Depending on the amount of astigmatism, we can provide eyeglasses or contact lenses to help correct your condition.
Sunglasses are designed to protect your eyes from sunlight. While all tinted lenses help to protect your eyes from sunlight, some will protect your eyes better than others. Sunglasses with lenses that block ultraviolet sunlight are the best option. Although sunglasses can be expensive, there are many affordable brands that provide great protection from harmful sunlight as well. If you are interested in finding the best brand of sunglasses for your lifestyle, we can help you find them.

Optomap® Retinal Exam
Optomap Retinal Exam is the revolutionary diagnostic tool that allows clinicians to view a majority of the retina. The Optomap Retinal Exam is a non-dilating camera that captures a digital image of the retina. The Optomap allows the doctor to capture a 200° high-resolution image of the retina in a single shot– without dilation — in a quarter of a second. It’s easy for the patient, takes just a few minutes to perform, and is immediately available for review with the patient in the exam room.
This multi function keratometer, corneal topographer, auto-refractor, and corneal aberrometer provides convenience and versatility. It offers a smaller footprint to save space but refuses to compromise on the resolution and accuracy of its measurements. These features help make the testing procedure easier for both the doctor and the patient.
Our Digital Phoropter sets new standards in digital refraction. It can minimize the time a doctor spends performing this procedure .
Matrix Visual Field
The Matrix offers three main testing algorithms for generating visual fields. It helps diagnose glaucoma and even tumors. It can pick up problems between the brain to eye pathway.
