Comprehensive eye exams for all ages.
A lifetime of healthy vision begins with thorough and regular examinations -- early in, and throughout, childhood -- to ensure proper visual development. And comprehensive eyecare continues to be important through every stage of life, right through the senior years. Our doctors will carefully evaluate your vision and visual skills and examine the inside and outside of your eyes in great detail. We always schedule plenty of time so you never feel rushed. At the end of your exam, our doctors will take the time to discuss their findings, present treatment options and thoroughly answer all your questions.
Vision technology to enhance every lifestyle.
At Innovative Eyecare, we provide the latest techniques and technologies to help every member of your family get the most out of life.
Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT).
CRT is a nonsurgical technique that uses special contact lenses to reshape the cornea while you sleep. The lenses are removed upon awakening, resulting in clear, natural vision. That means no glasses and no daytime contacts! Dr. Teichmiller was one of the first doctors in the area certified to provide CRT.
Our doctors are highly skilled in all areas of contact lenses, even for people who are "hard to fit." There are contact lens options for almost everyone, and we provide them all, including: High-oxygen silicone hydroge -- Soft -- Gas-permeable -- Disposable -- Extended-wear -- Astigmatic -- Bifocal -- Colors -- and more!
In the LASIK procedure, an advanced laser is used to surgically reshape the cornea to reduce -- or eliminate -- nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. If you're considering LASIK, our doctors will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your vision and eye health to determine if you're a candidate. If so, they'll refer you to an experienced board-certified eye surgeon who will perform the procedure. Then our doctors will co-manage your follow-up care in the comfort of our office, with the same exceptional skill and personalized attention that is our standard.
Eyewear for fashion, work and fun.
Inside The Eyewear Gallery -- our spacious optical boutique -- you'll find more than 1,000 frames and sunglasses for every member of the family, in a wide variety to fit your budget. Our attentive, knowlegeable staff will assist you every step of the way so you can be confident you've made the best selection.
The latest in lens technology.
We offer the latest innovations in spectacle lenses, including digital lenses, which provide clarity of vision that is similar to "high definition" technology that people associate with flat screen TVs. Some of the benefits of digital lenses are clarity of vision, a wider viewing area, and higher contrast. We also offer Transitions® sun lenses that darken outdoors, progressive no-line bifocals, computer lenses, non-glare coatings and Teflon® coating, so you'll always look and see your best.
