  • Emergency Eye Clinic

    If you are experiencing any sudden changes in your vision, our doctors will make every effort possible to see you on the same day. Symptoms may include flashes of light, new floaters or painful, red eyes.  We are also able to deal with foreign body removals and blunt trauma.  In many cases, our office provides faster service than a walk-in clinic or emergency room.

Vision Therapy

Vision therapy is a set of activities and exercises devoted to developing and enhancing visual performance, and its effectiveness isn’t just limited to adults — it’s for kids too! The ultimate goal of vision therapy is to improve visual comfort, ease and efficiency.

An optometric vision therapy program has two components: supervised in-office sessions to teach you skills, and at-home exercises to help reinforce them. Training of the visual system has been shown to be effective for eye fatigue, headaches, double vision and tracking problems.

 

Poor performance in school or sports is often indicative of an underlying visual problem. Studies estimate 1 in 10 children have a vision problem severe enough to detriment their learning, and 50% of school vision screenings can miss these problems.
Many parents and caregivers would be surprised to know that a child’s first eye examination is recommended between 6 and 12 months of age. After this initial exam during infancy, yearly exams should begin around age 3, or before children enter the classroom setting. To ensure your child isn’t suffering from an undiagnosed vision problem, schedule a visit with Dr. Dhillon today.


  • Glaucoma Assessment and Co-management

    Glaucoma causes irreversible damage to the optic nerve of the eye. Many individuals are asymptomatic until late stages of the disease. An optometrist may see you more often if they feel you are at a higher risk of developing glaucoma, for example, a positive family history. We know that elevated eye pressure is a large risk factor, but an individual can also develop glaucoma with normal pressures. This is why it is critical to have detailed, comprehensive eye exams.


  • Surgical Co-management

    At Downtown Victoria Optometry, we strive to provide unparalleled eye care to our patients. Our optometrists work closely with surgeons who perform corrective refractive surgery like LASIK and PRK and are able to provide pre and post-operative care. They are happy to discuss your candidacy and the options that will best suit your lifestyle.

In addition, our doctors can make appropriate referrals for cataract surgery when indicated. Vision often changes after cataract removal. Therefore, we typically re-evaluate your vision 4-6 weeks following surgery to ensure visual function is maximized.

Contact Lenses and Fitting

Contact lenses are considered medical devices and thus, it is important to educate every wearer about appropriate lens care. With continual improvements in technology, contact lenses are much more breathable and comfortable than in the past. Our office makes every effort to carry the most up to date brands. Our experienced optometrists are happy with work with you to find a contact lens modality that works best for your lifestyle. We offer both hard and soft contacts.
