Welcome toVision Corner Uptown
Even though we use them to see on a daily basis, people tend to take their eyes and overall vision for granted. Many will avoid visiting an optometrist until it is absolutely necessary. However, regular appointments at our practice can help us to keep a patient’s vision healthy, prescription up to date and help them continue the most effective treatment for pre-existing vision issues.
As an optometry office, our goal is to provide patients with quality primary eye and vision care to identify any possible eye conditions before they get worse. If left untreated, the issue can lead to difficulty in daily life, permanent loss of vision and more. With an eye examination at our practice, we can prescribe corrective lenses to help prevent the issue from getting worse.
The first step toward having healthy vision and the treatment you need is to call us and schedule an appointment today.
From the moment patients walk in the door to any follow-up appointments, our team will take the time to establish a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. Our team will help patients relax during the appointment and examination so they can receive the proper eye care they need. During this appointment, our team will answer questions and address any concerns the patient has. We will use the results from the examination to customize the patient's prescription or treatment. If you prefer glasses or contacts, we can review the benefits of each during this appointment. If you need prescription lenses or other treatment options to see clearly, our team can find the treatment that works for you.
Dr. Sophia W. Barnes, O.D. and our team at Vision Corner Uptown provide an array of services to address all our patients' needs. Since no patient is exactly like another, there is no one-size-fits-all treatment for vision issues. Even if multiple people wear glasses, they may have different prescriptions to help with various factors of sight. We provide glaucoma treatment, diabetic eye exams, dry eye treatment, red eye treatment, itchy eye treatment, pediatric optometry, retinal photography, emergency eye care, vision care, LASIK, EyeMed and eye care. Along with those services, we can also prescribe various types of glasses and contacts lenses to enhance the weak aspects of one’s vision. These include prescription glasses, prescription sunglasses, contact lenses, custom eyewear, designer eyewear frames, transitions lenses, prescription contacts and progressive lenses.
To begin the treatment process, we will need to gather information on the patient’s current condition, medical history, allergies, insurance and other various health factors. People may not realize that certain physical conditions can negatively impact their vision. For instance, diabetes can increase the risk of conditions that weaken the eyes. By notifying us of any pre-existing conditions, we can enhance the overall treatment and include those factors in our assessment of the patient. We can then use this information to customize the treatment to the patient’s needs and continue to make updates over time.
