We know it’s important to be thorough. That’s why we offer a comprehensive eye examination that will uncover hidden, symtomless, potentially sight-threating diseases that are not found by a simple vision screening.
Exams include emergency, general, contact lens, children, and laser vision consultations

Emergency Eye Services
An emergency eye situation is anytime you feel you have a foreign object or chemical in your eye. You may be temped to rub your eyes, don’t do that. Chances are, it will make the situation worse.
Get medical treatment right away if you experience swelling, redness or pain, especially if a saline rinse doesn’t flush out the object or chemical. Flush for at least 15 minutes. Seek immediate medical treatment if symptoms don’t improve.
If you wait too long to seek treatment, you run the risk of permanent tissue damage that could be as severe as total loss of vision.
General Eye Examinations
Regular eye exams are recommended every couple of years, more or less often, depending on your age. Ask Dr. Klufas how often he would recommend you or your child has an eye exam.
Even if you believe your eyes are healthy and don’t need corrective lenses, you should still have your eyes examined on a regular basis because many eye diseases that cause blindness such as glaucoma, don’t show any physical symptoms.
People with diabetes have an increased risk of eye disease and vision loss. Only regular exams will diagnose and prevent any related problems before they become serious eye health issues
Eye exams take less than hour, and there isn’t any pain involved. First, we collect your brief history of medical and eye health by asking a few basic questions. Then, there are tests to measure vision acuteness and your peripheral vision. We inspect your pupils, eye muscle and mobility, visual field and acuity, refraction, color vision, your retinal and cornea health.
If, at any point, you have any questions, just ask! Diamond K Eyecare doctors are always happy to talk with you.
Contact lens Examinations
With the advances of contact lens materials, just about anyone can comfortably wear many brands that are on the market. Many people with dry eyes and even astigmatism can wear contacts.
If you decide you would like to try contacts, we’ll give you a free trail for about a week. During your eye exam, the doctor will fit you for lenses by measuring your eye surface and do an evaluation to be sure you are able to comfortably wear contact lenses. Contacts come in different colors, extended wear or disposable brands. You choose what you like, and go home with a trial pair.
After you’ve tried your sample lenses, you’ll come back in about a week for a follow up exam. At that time, your doctor will make any necessary adjustments.
Children’s Eye Care
Children should have their eyes checked by an eye doctor at least every 2 years. If you hear that their having headaches, or see them squinting, uses one eye over the other they could have a visual impairment. Diamond K Eyecare will be able to effectively evaluate your child’s eye health.
Laser Vision Correction Surgery Consultation
While you’re here, ask about LASIK. We offer complimentary laser vision consultations! Because there are so many factors to consider before deciding to have laser vision correction we will discuss them carefully with you. If you are a good candidate, we will co-manage your pre and post op with your eye surgeon.
