TOP QUESTIONS FROM PATIENTS

My eye hurts.  Who should I see?

Dr. Quach is highly trained in treating eye infections, abrasions, "pink eye", dry eye, and other conditions. You are advised to come visit your eye doctor because she will have the best tools to determine the problem and treat you. We can see you under your medical insurance.  

 

Can I wear contacts?

Most patients are great candidates for contacts.  With the types of contacts lenses available today, we are able to fit patients with high prescriptions, astigmatism, and even those that need reading glasses into contacts.  Tell our eye doctor if you are interested.

 

Why do I need a contact lens evaluation?

Contact lenses are medical devices that need to be assessed yearly.  Even if you feel there is no change, we need to make sure they remain healthy for your eyes and assess how they fit on your eyeballs.  This is an additional evaluation in addition to glasses.

 

Should I have my eyes dilated?

Absolutely!   It is the most comprehensive way to check the inside of the eye for health issues.  It is recommended for both children and adults.  

 

 
What insurances are accepted?

We accept many vision and medical insurances such as most Medicaid, VSP, Superior, Avesis, and much more!  Call our office to confirm.

 

When should my kid have an eye exam?

The American Optometric Association recommends children have an exam at age 6 months, 3 years, and then prior to entering grade school.  At Aspire Eye Care, we can see patients as young as 5 if they can identify letters or numbers.

 

How often should I get an eye exam?

You should make a point to get yearly eye examinations. Even if your vision is great and you have no problems, it is important to evaluate ocular health yearly.  There are silent eye diseases that need to be ruled out.  This is especially important if you have diabetes.

 

My dad has AMD will it affect me?

You do have a genetic predisposition to age-related macular degeneration (AMD) if you have a family member with it.  This means there is a greater likelihood for you to possibly develop AMD, so it is important to get those eyes checked yearly even if you have no vision problems.  We can discuss the right prevention or treatment options for you.
