Our office can provide all of your family with a thorough eye exam using some
of the most advanced ophthalmic instruments currently available. We test for
cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, macular degeneration and numerous other debilitating
eye diseases. We will dilate your eyes to check for internal eye diseases and
certain systemic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension.
Cosmetic Eye Color Matching
For patients with congenital eye color mismatch or for those who have suffered eye trauma leading to corneal scaring we can use cosmetic contacts to improve your appearance. As an example, cosmetic contacts can make a completely white eye appear normal cosmetically - restoring both eye color and a normal dark pupil centrally.
In the photos above is an actual patient who had previous extensive eye surgery. Unfortunately his iris and eye color in one eye were lost post operatively. While his normal eye has a blue grey color the other appears glossy and black. Careful fitting with a prescription cosmetic contact lens restored both vision and natural eye color match.
Before and after effects may not be the same with each patient or case.

Contact Lens Fittings
We can evaluate your eyes and determine if you are first and foremost a good
contact lens candidate. If so, eye measurements, a trial fitting and prescription
refinements are performed to determine the contact lens type that gives you
the best visual acuity, comfort and wearing schedule. Our technicians will then
educate you on the handling and day-to-day care of your contacts.
Lasik Consultation and Co-management
A relatively new option to glasses or contact lenses is LASIK eye surgery.
LASIK is the most current type of corrective vision surgery performed today.
With newer technology, there are many options with respect refractive surgery.
If you are interested in surgery, we will first determine if you are a good
candidate and discuss with you all of your surgical options. Should you opt
for refractive surgery, Dr. Adame will perform the necessary pre-operative tests
and refer you to the N-Vision Laser Center in Palm Desert(California), where you will
go for the LASIK procedure. After the surgery, Dr. Adame will co-manage your
post-operative care for a period of one year. This will insure that your eyes
are healing properly and that you maintain excellent vision.
To educate yourself further regarding laser eye surgery we recommend you visit
the N-Vision Laser Centers Eye

a discount on laser surgery procedures.

eye care. Our exam equipment includes:
- Digital Fundus Camera - This instrument gives Dr. Adame a clear view
of the interior of your eyes. It is sometimes the only way to examine young

monitor the cornea of your eye. This technology is helpful in early detection
of eye disease, contact lens fitting, and preoperative tests for LASIK patients.
- Ultrasonic Pachymeter - This instrument is used for preoperative
care of LASIK patients to accurately measure intraocular pressure (pressure
within the eye).
- Zeiss Matrix Perimeter - Dr. Adame uses this instrument to identify
peripheral field loss, which can be caused by glaucoma, brain lesions, strokes,
and many other eye and systemic diseases.
