Striving to provide Peace Of Mind
The professionals at Eyes On Main are trained to provide the finest eye care services with a well established history of over 17 years! We are committed and dedicated to educating you so you will leave with an understanding of your visual system. While we focus on the health of your eyes we also offer a full optical for all your eyewear needs.
It Starts With a Doctor You Can Trust
Being an excellent doctor to us means caring for you, the person, and not just the problems and diseases of the eye. That’s why we will treat you with understanding, respect and a genuine sense of concern for your heath and well-being.
In order to achieve peace of mind, we’ve learned that providing you with the utmost care requires a deep level of personalization, individualized attention, and sincere concern. Our relationships are built on assurance and trust.
We provide the full complement of eyecare services.
Assisted by a certified para-optometric, an optometrist will perform your examination. We not only detect ocular diseases and other problems, but also have full capabilities of treating them. When appropriate, performing special tests during your eye exam, will allow us to understand problems more clearly. We explain conditions and treatments in thorough terms you will understand. Your eyes are complex sophisticated organs! You will leave with answers, not questions.
It is important to understand that visual acuity alone is not a good predictor of the degree of visual difficulty that a person may have. We diagnose and treat a wide variety of vision conditions including:
An eye doctor can see things you can’t
Some vision problems, such as glaucoma, have no warning signs and could cause permanent vision loss if left untreated.
It's a fact of life that vision changes occur as you get older. But these changes don't have to compromise your lifestyle. Knowing what to expect and when to seek professional care are important steps to safeguarding your vision.
One in three adults over the age of 40 have a vision problem and are at risk of cataract, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and presbyopia.
Some people over the age of 60 may experience loss of sight beyond the normal or age related vision changes. This loss of vision can take many forms and it may exist in varying degrees.
One in four children have a vision problem. Children’s behavior, performance in school and much more are affected by their vision. Since 80% of learning is obtained visually, it’s recommended to have your child’s vision examined.
Expect an in depth, comprehensive eye exam that typically lasts one hour. All eye exams have two major parts, an optical component and a medical component.
- Vision testing with and without your present glasses
- A refraction to measure your current eyeglass and contact lens prescription
- Topography – a computer measurement of the curve of your eye
- Neurological testing including pupil testing, eye coordination testing and evaluation of your eye focusing ability
- A microscopic health evaluation of both the front and back of the eyes, sometimes including dilation of the pupils for a maximum view of the inside of the eyes
- Eye pressure testing
- Visual field testing – a computer driven side vision exam
Special Testing: when appropriate, additional tests may be required. Some of them include
- Retinal Photography
- Enhanced Visual Field Evaluation
Diagnosis and Treatment of Eye Diseases
Many eye diseases have no early signs or symptoms, so it is important to have your eyes checked every 12 months. Should you be diagnosed with an eye disease, there are many forms of treatment that could be recommended, from simply monitoring your condition, to topical or oral medications, or even surgery.
Eyes on Main works closely with many specialty providers and clinic groups to provide you with the excellent and seamless care you deserve. While most of the time we can provide treatment there are occasions where co-management or referral is necessary. Some of those examples are:
Laser Vision (LASIK) Consultation & Co-Management
Eyes on Main offers free consultation to determine if you are a candidate for laser vision correction as part of your eye exam. You can expect an explanation of the pros and cons of laser surgery and other possible options. Our goal is to educate you so that you can make a well-informed decision about corrective surgery. Once you have made your decision to proceed with out-patient surgery we can assist you in making a surgical appointment with the surgeon of your choice. Our preferred surgical providers are the doctors at MN Eye Consultants whose commitment to quality is second to none. We can provide all of your pre-operative exam information to your surgeon as well as provide all of your post-operative evaluations and follow-up to keep your travel to a minimum.
Macular Degeneration Treatment & Co-Management
Macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in America. It results from changes to the macula, a portion of the retina that is responsible for clear, sharp vision and is located at the back of the eye. Most macular degeneration is of the dry form which we monitor closely and is usually treated with vitamin supplements. If we find out a patient has wet macular degeneration and needs additional care or treatment we will assist in making an appointment with the surgeon of your choice. Our preferred surgical providers are the doctors at VitreoRetinal Surgery.
Cataract Treatment and Co-Management
A cataract is a cloudy or opaque area in the normally clear lens of the eye. Cataracts are very common and evaluating them is a usual part of regular eye care. Should we determine that cataract treatment is necessary we will assist you to help you understand which cataract procedure and lens implant are best for you. Once you have made your decision to proceed with out-patient surgery we can assist you in making a surgical appointment with the surgeon of your choice. Our preferred surgical providers are the doctors Eye Surgeons & Physicians. Dr. Dvorak is the out-patient surgeon from Eye Surgeons & Physicians that provides cataract surgery locally at the St. Michaels Hospital. Our office can provide all of the pre and post operative care to keep your travel to a minimum.
Diabetic Exams (Retinopathy Treatment and Co-Management)
Co-management of the diabetic patient emphasizes interdisciplinary care between your primary physician, optometrist and retinal specialist. Most diabetic eye disease is monitored by our doctor and information sent back to your primary physician so they can assist in blood sugar treatment and control. Uncontrolled diabetes can often lead to more serious eye problems that may need more aggressive treatment including surgery. Should we determine that more aggressive treatment is necessary we will assist in making an appointment with the surgeon of your choice. Our preferred surgical providers are the doctors at VitreoRetinal Surgery.
Cooing, sitting up and crawling are signs that a baby is growing. Your baby’s vision has stages of development, but this process rarely has visible signs. We encourage all parents to include a trip to the optometrist, on the list of well-baby check-ups. Assessments at six to twelve months of age can determine healthy development of vision. Early detection of eye conditions is the best way to ensure a baby has healthy vision for successful development-now and in the future.
InfantSEE®, a public health program, managed by Optometry's CharityTM - The AOA Foundation, is designed to ensure that eye and vision care becomes an integral part of infant wellness care to improve a child's quality of life. Under this program, AOA optometrists provide a comprehensive eye and vision assessments for infants within the first year of life regardless of a family's income or access to insurance coverage.

School Readiness Summit: Focus on Vision.
In response to President Obama's call to ensure that no child is left behind in the classroom due to an undetected or untreated eye or vision disorder, the AOA (with generous support from HOYA) gathered together nearly 50 leading doctors, nurses, educators and other child health advocates for the first-ever School Readiness Summit: Focus on Vision. The two-day intensive session examined alarmingly high-rates of learning-related vision issues now plaguing America's children and ultimately produce a first-of-its-kind plan of action aimed at addressing these serious concerns.
