Comprehensive Dilated Eye Exams in the Poconos
Here at Kleinsorge we take your health very seriously. Comprehensive dilated eye exams screen not only for optical issues, but for diabetes and other diseases during your eye exam. (Ask us how!) The video below describes the process that you can expect when you get your exam.
There are three types of eye care professionals trained to care for the eyes of adults and children. At Kleinsorge Family Eye Care we have an optometrist and optician on staff. Here’s a brief overview of what you can expect from each:
- OPTOMETRIST: Doctors of Optometry, better known as Optometrists, are health care professionals who provide primary eye care . They use comprehensive eye examinations to detect and treat various visual abnormalities and eye diseases. Optometrists (like Dr. Kleinsorge) are licensed to diagnose and treat many common diseases of the eye using oral, topical, diagnostic, and/or therapeutic medications. Optometrists also identify general health conditions that affect the eye, such as diabetes and hypertension making them a valuable resource for your primary care physician!
- OPTICIAN: Opticians design, fit and dispenses corrective lenses for the correction of a person’s vision. Optician’s order and verify eye-related products from start to finish. They are responsible for the adjustments, repairs and reproducing previously ordered contact lenses, eyeglasses and frames. Becoming an optician is challenging. In addition to completing their college education, they have to achieve American Board of Opticianry and National Contact Lens Examiners advanced certifications.
