What to Expect
SeePort's Eye Exam Experience
What to expect on the day of your appointment with Dr. Hicks
Before Your Eye Exam
We took all the mundane registration details out of the office so we can FOCUS on you while in the office.
Ocular Disease Management
With advanced technology in the office, Team SeePort has the ability to evaluate, diagnose and treat ocular diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, dry eyes, and uveitis. Annual diabetic exams are preformed with dilation and thorough check of the retinas.
Contact Lens Exams
Properly fit contact lenses can provide clear and comfortable vision while reducing your use of glasses. Contact lens prescriptions are in addition to your eyeglasses prescription, additional measurements and patient history are taken to ensure a comfortable fit and vision based on your daily life. Some patients wear contact lenses primarily, others for specific hobbies, sports or special occasions, Dr. Hicks will consider your intended frequency of wear, then prescribe you a lens that will meet your needs. Dr. Hicks enjoys designing contact lenses for patients that may have been told in the past they were not a good candidate. For patients with a severe astigmatism, keratakonous or irregular corneas, Dr. Hicks will design custom contact lenses to fit your eye comfortably and provide clear vision.
Treatment of Infections Pain and Injuries
SeePort Optometry invites both established and new patients to call on us when they feel like something just isn’t right in their eye. Dr. Hicks can assess and treat pink eye (conjunctivitis), swollen eyelids, eyes with mucous discharge, red eyes, or itchy eyes. These symptoms can be attributed to either a bacterial or viral infection, which Dr. Hicks can diagnose, then suggest a treatment plan.
Dry eye is a condition in which there are insufficient tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. Tears are necessary for maintaining the health of the front surface of the eye and for providing clear vision. People with dry eyes either do not produce enough tears or have a poor quality of tears. Dry eye is a common and often chronic problem, particularly in older adults.
Pediatric Eye Exam
Dr. Hicks welcomes children starting at 6 months of age
Children rely heavy on their visual skills to develop their eye-hand-body coordination.
During the infant and toddler years, your child has been developing many vision skills and has been learning how to see. In the preschool years, this process continues as your child develops visually guided eye-hand-body coordination, fine motor skills and the visual motor skills necessary to learn to read. As a parent, you should watch for signs that may indicate a vision development problem, including a short attention span for the child’s age; difficulty with eye-hand-body coordination in ball play and bike riding; avoidance of coloring and puzzles and other detailed activities.
SeeKids for Myopia
Many patients come to us every day struggling to get through their daily lives with their current choice of vision correction. Some have eyeglasses that do not sit properly on their face or feel that their peripheral vision is hindered by the frames. While contact users may find the lenses uncomfortable or have them fall out at inconvenient times. For these patients, we are pleased to offer orthokeratology, or Ortho-K, a revolutionary way to help you see clearly throughout the day without having to wear glasses or contacts and without having to get laser eye surgery.
