Comprehensive Eye Examinations
It is recommended to have your eyes examined yearly as an important part of caring for your overall health. During a comprehensive eye exam, your eye health can provide clues and early warning signs for diseases including diabetes, high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, glaucoma, and macular degeneration as well as other diseases. Dr. Anker will check your eyes -inside and out- for any potential corrective needs or disorders. After careful evaluation, Dr. Anker will prescribe appropriate treatment.
In an effort to provide an even more thorough eye exam, our practice has incorporated the iWellness Exam™ SDOCT retinal scan and Digital retinal imaging as part of our comprehensive care. The iWellness is a quick and easy OCT scan that provides valuable information to aid in early diagnosis of ocular disease.
Contact Lens Services
ClearView Eyecare offers contact lens evaluations in addition to comprehensive eye exams. During the fitting process, Dr. Anker will take the time necessary to determine which type of contact lens is right for you.
Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT)
Corneal reshaping with CRT Brand Contact Lenses is a safe, non-invasive, non-surgical process to temporarily correct nearsightedness (myopia). By wearing a therapeutic contact lens while you sleep, CRT gently and safely reshapes the cornea. You remove the CRT lens when you awake and are able to go throughout the day without any other correction. Dr. Anker is a Certified CRT professional. Please call our office or visit www.crtvision.com for more information.

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.
