Distinction in Eyewear and Eyecare

Referring Physicians

Why Referrals?

Like you, caring for patients and their vision is our priority! Our talented optometrist, Dr. Jonathan Andrews, has the training and technology to practice the fullest scope of optometry. As a result, many doctors like you, including ophthalmologists, primary care providers, pediatricians, and other optometrists, refer their medical and specialty cases to our practice Optometric Associates.

Eye Emergency & Urgent Eye Care Services

We understand the importance of finding a practice that can handle an eye emergency in a timely fashion. If you want an office in that can provide your patient’s an immediate evaluation or consultation – look no further.

Doctors commonly refer patients to our practice for specialty care, including:

Specialty Contact Lens Fittings for Keratoconus & Other Corneal Irregularities

Scleral lenses have grown in popularity to treat corneal irregularities, but finding an optometrist who specializes in fitting them is still a challenge. Dr. Jonathan Andrews’s years of experience combined with the latest in corneal topography has helped him fit hundreds of patients with scleral lenses with immediate & satisfactory results. Connect your patients with an eye doctor who cares about the health & vision of every patient ensuring they receive the attention they deserve.

EyePrintPro Provider

Among corneal irregularities, not all patients have the same level of severity. In the rare, most difficult cases, EyePrintPro creates a custom mold specific to each eye ensuring the highest level of detail in each lens. EyePrintPro allows us to help patients unable to benefit from other specialty contact lenses finally find a way to correct their vision comfortably. 

Corneal Refractive Therapy or Orthokeratology (Ortho-K)

Although vision correction through corrective lenses has helped children manage their myopia, many adults appreciate the ability to see clearly throughout the day without eyewear without undergoing LASIK surgery. 

Glaucoma Management

Our medical practice co-manages glaucoma patients to monitor the health of their optic nerve and their overall eye health. Since anyone can develop glaucoma, routine exams become essential above 40. Our technology can also creates a digital record of each patient’s eye health to detect early signs of eye disease.

Diabetes & Diabetic Retinopathy Eye Exams

Our medical practice co-manages patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes to monitor the health of the retina. Our digital retinal imaging allows us to capture any early indications of swelling or macular adema caused by diabetic retinopathy. We’ll communicate to you, the patient’s practitioner, a full report of our evaluations so that you can have the information to better treat & guide your patient back to good health.

Prosthetic Lens Polishing

We are able to polish prosthetic eyes at our office. 

Dry Eye Treatment

Dry eye doesn’t have to leave patients in a yearly cycle of discomfort and artificial tears. Our practice Optometric Associates utilizes a number of tests and solutions to pinpoint the underlying causes of dry eye & provide real relief.

LipiFlow Treatment

Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) is the leading cause behind dry eye patients. In one study, nearly 86% of dry eye patients had MGD. Fortunately, we carry LipiFlow, the innovative, non-invasive treatment that successfully clears blocked meibomian glands. 

Post-surgical and co-management of Cataract and Lasik

Our office carries some of the latest technology in digital retinal Imaging such as the Cornea 550 by Essilor.  We invest in the latest topography to help our optometrist achieve precise measurements of the cornea that can be shared with other practitioners electronically. With the combination of technology and years of experiences, patients receive exceptional pre-op care before meeting their cataract surgeon or LASIK surgeon.
