Taking care of your vision allows you to manage one of your most important senses, which influences mental health and general physical health. But comprehensive eye exams are about more than blurry vision.
Eversee Boutique Eyecare provides its patients with the resources to actively manage their eye health and overall health. During comprehensive eye exams asymptomatic patients can discover serious eye problems or even general health issues like glaucoma, macular degeneration or brain tumors.
Don’t be a statistic! According to AOA’s annual American Eye-Q® survey:
• 4 in 10 Americans don’t know how to take good care of their eyes.
• A quarter of Americans don’t think they need an eye exam if their vision is clear—and nearly half of millennials agree.
• Half of Americans (52%) don’t know that an eye disease diagnosis is part of a standard comprehensive eye exam.
Dry eye syndrome otherwise known as ocular surface disorder can have a major impact on your quality of life. When a lack of tears is produced by the eye, or the quality of the tears is poor, people may suffer from dry eye symptoms. There is a range of therapies to address the unique underlying issues and symptoms which Dr. Myers can help address.
Myopia, otherwise known as nearsightedness, is much more prevalent now than it was in the past. Recently, stabilizing and possibly lowering the prescription has become popular.

Glaucoma is a progressive disease of the optic nerve characterized by specific loss of nerve fibers and progressive peripheral loss of eyesight. Glaucoma detection in the early stages can be detected with simple tests, which are performed during annual comprehensive exams. The best defense against glaucoma is a well-planned treatment, which can be implemented, monitored, and optimized at Eversee Boutique Eyecare.
Floaters are very common and many people report noticing floaters in their vision. Any sudden onset of new floaters, many new floaters, flashing lights, a veil over your vision, or observation of cobweb-like structures should be examined immediately.
Diabetes is the leading cause for blindness for patients under the age of 65. There are many eye complications due to diabetes, some much more severe than others. The most important aspect of treatment for diabetic eye complications is to regulate and control blood sugar levels.
Amblyopia, or "Lazy Eye" is a developmental disorder of visual processing that occurs in early childhood. Amblyopia results in reduced eyesight in one eye, even with the best-corrected glasses or contact lenses. If caught early enough, Amblyopia effects can be almost completely mitigated if well managed with appropriate intervention.
Cataracts are part of the normal aging process. A cataract forms when the natural crystalline lens becomes cloudy. Eversee Boutique Eyecare will help patients function in life with early-stage cataracts to help minimize or prolong the need for surgery.
Age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) is a medical condition that results in blurred central eyesight due to damage of the macula. The macula is a tiny spot in our retina responsible for our most acute and detailed eyesight. Macular degeneration is the leading cause for legal blindness in people over the age of 55. Having annual routine comprehensive eye evaluations to monitor changes is essential to the control and management of ARMD.
