Much of the sensory information going to the brain is visual. Eye diseases and vision disorders may cause disability, pain, decreased productivity, and even loss of sight. Early detection and treatment may minimize and even prevent the damage.
What does a comprehensive eye exam include?

Post exam consultation with Dr. Taylor
Recent advances in contact lenses have enabled patients who previously may have been told they were unable to wear contact lenses to enjoy the visual freedom of contacts. From single use daily disposable soft contact lenses to multifocal gas permeable lenses, a variety of contact lens options are available. If you are interested in wearing contact lenses, contact our office today for a contact lens consultation.
Injury and infections
If you suffer an injury or have some other ocular emergency, please call us immediately. Even on weekends or after hours, Dr. Taylor will make every attempt to see you. Our staff will make you feel comfortable and free of pain as quickly as possible.
Many ocular and systemic diseases can affect the health of the eyes. Regular comprehensive eye examinations are vital to diagnosing these diseases and treating them before vision-threatening damage can occur. Dr. Taylor has extensive knowledge of ocular diseases and a thorough understanding of how systemic diseases can affect your vision. Dr. Taylor and the Taylor Eye Care staff also implement the latest technology when screening for, diagnosing, and treating eye disease. Two integral components of this technology are the digital retinal camera, which is used to take an image of the inside of your eyes, and the Ocular Coherence Tomographer (OCT), which generates cross-sectional images of the inside of your eyes. Using this innovative equipment, eye diseases can be detected more easily, and conditions can be monitored and treated more effectively.
Post operative care
At Taylor Eye Care, we provide comprehensive care to meet the vision needs of our patients. We offer pre- and post-operative care for patients undergoing cataract, LASIK, and other ocular surgical procedures. Our goal is to help you attain the clearest vision possible.
