If you are looking for an eye care practice which will provide you and your family with the very highest level of optometric care, you will definitely want to become familiar with our practice, Vision Arts Eyecare Center. Our expert and highly trained optometrist is Dr. Monty Smick. Our local eye doctor in Liberty Lake has been in practice for over 34 years, and will be able to make sure that your family’s eyes maintain their excellent health.
At our vision care practice, we offer many services for members of our community. If you need a comprehensive eye exam, or a contact lens exam and fitting, our local eye doctor in Liberty Lake will be able to provide this service for you. Eye exams are very important to have on a regularly scheduled basis. This is because many eye diseases and disorders show no obvious symptoms in the early stages. Unless they are diagnosed early at an eye exam at our practice, they may continue to progress and cause permanent vision damage. At our optical department, we fill prescriptions in new or existing eyeglass frames. Our frames stylists are also always available to make sure that you find eyeglass frames that work well with your prescription needs, face shape, fashion sense, and budget.
During a contact lens exam, your eyes will also be measured for the curvature of the cornea and the size of your iris. This information is needed to make sure that you get contact lenses which will fit you perfectly. If contact lenses do not fit your eyes just right, you may actually end up damaging your cornea when you wear the contact lenses. If you have diabetes, you will be able to come to our practice for an annual dilated exam of the retina. This exam will be able to determine whether or not you are developing any diabetic eye problems, especially, diabetic retinopathy. Baseline retinal screenings, as well as our scanning laser technology will help our optometrist to diagnose and manage diabetic retinopathy. Patients can also come to our practice for glaucoma diagnosis and treatment. When glaucoma is caught in the early stages at a comprehensive eye exam, it can often be easily treated and managed by our doctor who will prescribe medicated eye drops. Our local eye doctor in Liberty Lake will be able to determine whether or not you are developing any optic nerve damage that needs additional treatment. As part of a glaucoma diagnosis, our eye doctor will always measure your intraocular pressure, measure the thickness of your cornea, and inspect the drainage angle of your eyes. Patients also come to see our eye doctor for treatment of eye infections and allergies.
