How long will it take for my glasses or contact lenses to arrive?
Our prescription eyewear is customized to your individual needs, we use a large, offsite, specialty lab for precision while crafting your lenses. The turn around is usually a week and as long as two weeks for custom progressives.
How long will my appointment take?
We do not rush eye exams – new patients are allotted 45 minutes while returning patients are usually set for 30 minutes. In rare cases, if you have significant issues, we might arrange a longer exam time or divide it between two or more separate exams.
Does Dr. Sultan do eye exams for children?
Yes, in fact Dr. Sultan did a residency in children’s vision development and visually related learning problems.
Do you offer LASIK?
We co-manage lasik treatment – meaning if LASIK is recommended my office coordinates the testing/measurements with our preferred laser surgeon, and we do all of the follow-up care right here, in the office. Dr. Sultan had LASIK treatment nearly 15 years ago with great results.
Do I have to have my eyes dilated?
During the initial exam, we can take digital retinal photos that take 5-10 seconds to determine any structural/ocular medical problems at the back of the eye. There are a number of other tests that can be done without dilating, however, eventually it is advisable to be dilated to see more of the back of the eyes. An exception to this rule is if you have very small pupils, dilation would then be necessary to rule out pathology that would otherwise be missed.
What is the difference between an optician, optometrist, and ophthalmologist?
Ahhh the three O’s: The optician is the expert in filling a doctor’s prescription, much like the pharmacist fills a medical prescription. The optometrist’s area has expanded the most over the last two decades to include diagnosis, detection and treatment of ocular conditions both medical and refractive. The ophthalmologist can also treat refractive issues but usually spends more time diagnosing and treating medical and surgical treatments for ocular disease. All three work very closely together.
What do I need to start vision care?
Obviously the sooner the better. The American Optometric Society recommends vision exams before entering school for children. For adults, vision exams should be annual for those with issues of clarity, eyestrain or headaches in the forehead or temples.
When do major changes in the eyes occur?
The onset of nearsightedness starts by the third grade. There are numerous preventive methods that can delay or prevent this. Adults in their early 40s can expect to see their near vision changing. Adults 60 and over are more likely to have the beginning of cataracts and other ocular health changes – glaucoma, macular degeneration, and dry eyes.
Genetics and lifestyle play a major role in the development of the ocular disease. Therefore, providing the best possible care to patients involves collecting a thorough medical, social and lifestyle history. Taking genetic concerns into account, we can help to prevent or minimize disease progression by focusing on the modifiable risk factors.
Dr. Sultan uses advanced technology to complete preventative disease detection in our state-of-the-art pretest room.
