Here at Emory Eyecare, our primary eye care service includes a complete eye exam that analyzes eye health and vision function. In addition to eye exams and vision testing, Eric L. Ketchum, O.D. and our team of optometry professionals provide testing for glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration. Emory Eyecare also offers glasses, contact lenses, and pre- and post-operative care.
During a yearly or bi-yearly examination, our patients will receive a patient history review, a series of vision and eye tests, assessments of eye focusing and movement, and an eye health evaluation. Dr. Ketchum will discuss any additional testing that may be required to diagnose an eye disease or condition.
Not sure that glasses are for you? Ask us about contact lenses! Advances in the field of optometry have produced a variety of different types of contact lenses with a range of benefits. Rigid gas-permeable (RGP), daily-wear soft, extended-wear, extended-wear disposable, and planned replacement are the various types of contact lens options available today. Dr. Ketchum will discuss the various options with you to determine which type will best fit your needs and lifestyle.
Laser assisted in situ keratomileusis, commonly referred to as LASIK, is a corrective alternative to glasses or contact lenses. Like glasses or contact lenses, LASIK is a method for treating refractive conditions including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. At Emory Eyecare, Dr. Ketchum and his staff provides pre- and post-operative exams for LASIK and other eye procedures.
