The latest technological advances provide the best care
At Specs Appeal we provide comprehensive eye examinations for your entire family. Our doctors are up-to-date on current diagnoses and treatment of eye disease and use the latest advances in technology to provide you with the best care. Both Drs. Minh Ta and Nancy Truong are board certified to prescribe medications for the eye, including the treatment & management of glaucoma, cataracts and diabetic eye disease. They are experienced in removing embedded foreign bodies in the front part of the eye, diagnosing and treating red eyes, infections, injuries, allergies and dry eye problems.We recommend making yearly eye exams as part of your overall health check.
Our Comprehensive Eye Exam consists of a detailed medical history, discussion of your visual needs going over how you use your eyes at work and leisure, evaluate ocular health and check for eye diseases. We offer the Optomap which allows a great way to screen for eye disease in the retina without dilation! We take it a step further using the Optovue retinal scan which looks into the layers of the retina, where disease often can occur but go undetected. We take the time to review our findings with you and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Children’s eye exams
80% of learning is through the eyes. Children as young as 6 months old can and should have their eyes evaluated. Any problems should be resolved early so the eyes and brain can continue to develop together to provide normal vision and depth perception. School-aged children do not necessarily tell you if they are having vision-related problems because they often don’t realize it themselves. Vision-related problems can impair their ability to learn and excel.
Vision-related problems can sometimes be observed with rubbing eyes often, holding books too close or too far away, headaches, eyestrain, double vision, loss of place with reading, attention or poor reading comprehension for an otherwise bright-child. One in four children have an undetected vision issue and may be misdiagnosed as having attention issues or a learning deficit.
We see children of all ages. We tailor the exam to meet your child. We have objective methods of measuring your children’s vision and can still examine your child’s eyes even if they don’t know their letters. Most of these methods need very little input from your child. Please feel free to call if you have questions before scheduling an examination. Want to ease your child’s anxiety? Bring him in for a tour of the office!
