Comprehensive Eye Testing

If you’re looking for ophthalmology services in Charlotte, NC, look no further than Christenbury Eye Center. We provide comprehensive ophthalmology for all your vision care needs. We offer laser vision correction services, procedures to eliminate reading glasses and bifocals, cataract surgery, corneal transplants, and ocular plastic surgery.

Comprehensive Eye Exam

A comprehensive eye exam is important to the long-term health of your eyes, even if you’re not aware of any vision problems. During the exam, you are checked for glaucoma, cataracts and any retinal disorders. Eye exams should be scheduled every two years from age 4 or 5 up to age 40, and yearly after that. If you wear corrective glasses or contacts, we recommend a yearly exam to ensure that your prescription remains up-to-date.

Common Vision Impairments

In addition to comprehensive ophthalmology services, Christenbury Eye is renowned for safe, effective treatment of the following common conditions:

  • Nearsightedness – Nearsightedness or Myopia means that you can see things close up, but distant objects are blurred.
  • Farsightedness – Farsightedness or Hyperopia allows you to see things far away more clearly than objects that are closer to you.
  • Astigmatism – Astigmatism occurs when the cornea is football-shaped. This makes you more nearsighted or farsighted on one side of the cornea than the other, resulting in blurred or distorted vision. Astigmatism can occur alone, with myopia, or with hyperopia. It doesn’t usually change over time. Astigmatism is not a disease and can be corrected with glasses, contact lenses, and laser vision correction.
  • Presbyopia – Presbyopia begins to appear in most people after age 40. The crystalline lens in the eye loses its flexibility and then can’t focus, making reading more difficult. After age 40, most people require reading glasses or bifocals. The TECNIS Symfony procedure can eliminate reading glasses and bifocals.
  • Glaucoma – Glaucoma is a leading cause of preventable vision loss in the United States. It is characterized by elevated eye pressure, which eventually damages the optic nerve and can permanently affect vision. If you are over age 40, have diabetes, have myopia, are African American, or have a family history of glaucoma, you area at greater risk for this condition. It is important to have a comprehensive eye exam and have an eye pressure check yearly. Glaucoma can be treated effectively with eye drop medication and laser treatment if detected early.
