The doctors and staff of the Optometric Center are dedicated to providing you with comprehensive eye care including the following additional services. Please contact us if we can answer any questions you may have about the care we provide in these areas.

Therapeutic Services

Doctors Hobbs and Dinslage are certified to prescribe both topical and oral medications to treat eye infections and ocular disease. Conditions treated include glaucoma, conjunctivitis, iritis, corneal ulcers, corneal abrasions, and foreign bodies.

These services are available both during regular office hours and for emergencies after hours.

Glaucoma Treatment

Glaucoma is the leading cause of preventable blindness in the United States. It is a disease that causes a gradual loss of peripheral vision. This is due to a pressure build up inside the eye, which causes damage to the optic nerve. Glaucoma ultimately results in blindness if left untreated.

During your eye examination Doctors Hobbs and Dinslage will check your eye pressure and evaluate your optic nerves for damage. They can measure your peripheral vision using an instrument called a Visual Field Analyzer. Through these methods, glaucoma can be discovered in it's early stages, and treated.

Surgical Care

Doctors Hobbs and Dinslage perform your pre- and post-surgical care, including the pre- and post-surgical care for cataract surgery, refractive surgery (to reduce or eliminate your need for glasses or contact lenses) and retinal tear or detachment surgery. Your detailed pre-operative evaluation and thorough post-operative check-ups and care are performed right in our office.

Visual Field Testing

Visual field testing (checking for loss of peripheral vision) is available at our clinic. This is performed using a computerized instrument called a Visual Field Analyzer. Likely candidates for visual field testing include those with or suspected of having glaucoma, optic nerve disease, retinitis pigmentosa, ocular tumors, and headaches.

Retinal Photography

Retinal photography is available at our clinic for patients with various eye disorders such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, and retinal tears. Retinal photography is used to record the internal health of the eye, and as a reference during future visits to detect change in a patient's eye condition.
