The Spex Expression Difference
The Spex Difference means that we treat you like family because we’re a family business. Our eye doctors and professional staff consider your vision to be the most important issue when you walk into our vision center. At Spex we want to be certain that your vision is the clearest it can possibly be and protected as much as it needs to be. If that means new glasses, contacts, or sunglasses, we’ll make sure you get what you need and work with your insurance company the entire time.
We specialize in eye health including glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes, retinal pathology and dry eye disease. We also provide eye exams, fitting of glasses, contact lenses and low vision aids. We care for disease detection and treatment as well as occupational and recreational needs. Our offices are outfitted with the latest equipment to assist us in your care.
Our goal is Patient Education for Preservation of Our Patient’s Future Vision. We do this by continually educating our staff and investing in the latest technology. We feel that by combining our expertise with advancement in eye care we can offer solutions that go beyond a patient’s prescription.
If there is a greater technology, WE HAVE IT!
Your appointment starts with your eye examination
Your vision is precious, and at Spex Expressions, our doctors ensure your eye appointment includes a comprehensive eye exam tailored to your individual needs.
The eye doctors at Spex Expressions are known for their exceptional diagnostic skills and treatment of various eye conditions including conjunctivitis, glaucoma and astigmatism.
Our eye doctors are ready to test for and treat various eye conditions because eye care is not only our business; it’s what we care the most about. We have diagnosed and treated patients with degenerative eye diseases at very young ages, allowing them to make lifestyle changes that could be the difference between vision and blindness.
When it comes to the latest vision technology, we spare no expense. We have the latest technology at our clinic to evaluate and image the retina (optic nerve and macula) in order to provide early detection of any eye disease or disorder. We have the latest dry eye technology and treatments. If we believe there is a technology that has the potential to improve the sight of our patients, we will get it.
Your eye exam will include testing for:
- Muscle imbalance (“lazy eye”)
- Color deficiency
- Neurological defects (stroke, palsy, double vision)
- Depth perception (3D vision)
- Ocular health of the front and back of the eye, including diabetes, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration (AMD)
- Refraction – prescription for your glasses or contact lenses
- Curvature of the front of the eye, which is helpful for certain eyeglasses or contact lenses
- Dry eye disease
There are many medications you may take that can affect your vision. Please bring a list of all medications so we can review your medical history.
In addition, retinal photos, visual field tests, and optical coherence tomography (OCT) and other advanced techniques are used at our clinic to provide a complete assessment of your eyes. These can help our doctors discover early signs of ocular diseases and help them educate you on how to prevent certain ocular conditions from developing.
