Based on your diagnosis, we may recommend a wide variety of approaches, including improved nutrition, prescription medicines, therapy and vision exercises, or medical procedures.

Good Eyecare Begins With A Yearly Eye Exam!

Although many do not realize it, the best way to protect your vision is with a yearly eye checkup.  Even a basic eye exam can instantly detect many health-threatening conditions, such as tumors, vascular irregularities, and diabetes-related injury to the retina. At Dr. Daniel Rayman, Optometrist, that basic checkup is brief and painless.

lasikpageLASIK, a form of refractive surgery, is an option for vision correction without needing to wear glasses or contact lenses. Simply put, LASIK reshapes the cornea with a laser.

Recently, other surgical alternatives have become available. Among these is a technique called phakic IOL implantation which involves implanting a lens behind the cornea, but in front of the iris. With this new option, many of those who were too highly nearsighted for LASIK are now candidates for refractive surgery.

If you are interested in refractive surgery, please let us know. Refractive surgery is not to be taken lightly. Detailed testing is necessary to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for the surgery. If testing shows you to be a good candidate, we can help you choose the refractive surgeon who is most appropriate for your case. In addition, we provide post-operative care for refractive surgery.

In our continued efforts to bring the most advanced technology available to our patients, Dr. Rayman is proud to announce the inclusion of Retinal Imaging as an integral part of your eye exam.

Many eye problems can develop without warning and progress with no symptoms. Early on, you might not notice any change in your vision. However, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, as well as other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure, can be detected with a thorough exam of the retina. The retina is the part of your eye that catches the image of what you are looking at, similar to the film in a camera.

A Retinal Imaging Exam provides:

  • A scan to confirm a healthy eye or detect the presence of disease.
  • An overview or map of the retina, giving your eye doctor a more detailed view than he can achieve by other means.
  • The opportunity for you to view and discuss the retinal images of your eye with your doctor at the time of your exam.
  • A permanent record for your medical file, enabling your optometrist to make important comparisons if potential problems show themselves at a future examination.

All refractions in our office are performed using the Nidek RT-3100 computerized refractor.  The benefits of using computerized refraction over standard refraction are many:

  1. Compact Design: The RT-3100 is compact and the ergonomic design covers less of the patient’s face, offering a more comfortable examination.
  2. Wide Visual Field (40o): The wide visual field provides a natural view of the environment enabling more realistic and accurate refractions.
  3. Faster Examinations: By using the responsive operator keypad instead of manually flipping dials, refractions can be performed quickly and efficiently.  Additionally, we are able to compare current prescription or unaided vision to the new prescription instantaneously.

Eye focusing (accommodation) and eye teaming (vergence) problems may occur even when individuals have 20/20 eyesight, and can impact students when reading and studying. The typical student with an eye focusing or eye teaming disorder will often experience fatigue, loss of place when reading, and difficulty completing assignments.
 
Other common symptoms include skipping small words, rereading sentences, inserting words that do not exist in the text, and experiencing decreasing comprehension the longer that he or she reads.

A comprehensive binocular vision assessment and visual perceptual testing can be helpful in determining whether these individuals would benefit from vision therapy.

Vision therapy is a sequence of activities individually prescribed and monitored by the doctor to develop efficient visual skills and processing. It is prescribed after a comprehensive eye examination has been performed and has indicated that vision therapy is an appropriate treatment option. The vision therapy program is based on the results of standardized tests, the needs of the patient, and the patient’s signs and symptoms. The use of lenses, prisms, filters, occluders, specialized instruments, and computer programs is an integral part of vision therapy.

Vision therapy is administered in the office under the guidance of the doctor. It requires a number of office visits and depending on the severity of the diagnosed conditions, the length of the program typically ranges from several weeks to several months.

The Myopia Control Centre at our offices specializes in optometric care of children and young adults with myopia (nearsightedness). In addition to providing conventional glasses for clear vision, more importantly our services include options for controlling the progression of myopia. The latter options are likely to benefit most those with early onset, i.e., whose nearsightedness developed before the age of 10 years, and/or fast progressing myopes, who are at greatest risk of becoming highly myopic. A positive family history of high myopia represents another risk factor.


Dr. Rayman uses specialty equipment and techniques to comprehensively evaluate the refractive errors (i.e. myopia) and the ocular size and shape of our patients' eyes. These measurements along with myopia progression history are used to determine an optimum management strategy, which typically involves the fitting of specialty contact lenses.


Dr. Rayman utilizes two different types of contact lenses to achieve myopia control in our patients:
1.    Rigid contact lenses (ortho-K lenses) gently reshape the cornea (the front of the eye) as the patient sleeps. In addition to controlling the progression of myopia, these lenses have the benefit of allowing patients to see clearly all day without any contacts or glasses.
2.    Specialized soft multifocal contact lenses are worn during the day and removed at night.  These lenses allow patients to see clearly when worn and help to control myopia due to their unique design properties.
