Wellness Eye Exam

Wellness Eye Exam


An adult wellness eye exam involves a series of tests designed to evaluate your vision and check for eye diseases. Each test evaluates a different aspect of your vision and eye health. Here is what you can expect during an adult wellness eye exam

Children's Clinic

Children's Clinic


At Family Eyecare we are proud to create a comfortable and happy place for your child. You can expect a doctor who is specially trained to care for your child's vision. You can also expect a warm and kid-friendly staff and environment!

What to expect for your Child's eye exam?

  • Infants and Toddlers (starting at 6 months of age): Baby's eyes must be checked for normal focusing ability, eye coordination, internal health and lack of infection.
  • Preschool Children (3 to 5 years old): Beside nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, preschool children will be tested for color vision, eye muscle strength, eye coordination, focusing ability, eye allergies and internal eye health.
  • School Age: An eye exam is essential at this age for vision correction, myopia control, reading efficiency, diagnosis of learning disabilities, eye infections, allergies and the internal health of the eyes.

According to the American Optometric Association, nearly 30% of school-age children have vision problems. Furthermore, about 80% of what children learn comes from their ability to properly see!

Eye Diseases


Through many years of professional experience, as well as access to the latest in technology, we are able to diagnose, treat and manage the vast majority of eye diseases.

Many sight-threatening eye diseases can develop without any indication or you even noticing any changes in your vision. Some of these include, but are not limited to:



Cataract: An eye condition where vision gets progressively blurry in one or both eyes due to cloudiness in the crystalline lens inside the eye. Decreased night vision or glare is common with cataracts. Treatment is generally by monitoring changes and ultimately removal and replacement of the lens inside the eye (Cataract surgery)



Glaucoma: A chronic eye disease mostly associated with increased pressure inside the eyes. When untreated Glaucoma can cause damage to the optic nerve and result in peripheral vision loss. We use FDT/Visual Field, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and Digital Photography among other technologies to diagnose Glaucoma. Treatment is mostly by eye drops in early stages and surgery in advanced cases.



Diabetic Retinopathy: An eye disease mostly caused by advanced or uncontrolled diabetes. The blood vessels in the retina, the nerve tissue in the back of the eye become damaged due to diabetes and leak. The result is vision loss.
We utilize Digital Photography, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and Optomap Wide Retinal Imaging among other technologies to diagnose Diabetic Retinopathy.
Treatment is focused on diabetes control in early stages, accompanied with medical (Anti-VGEF) or laser treatment in advanced stages.



Macular Degeneration: Macular degeneration, is an eye disease which may result in blurred vision or blind spot in the center of the vision. It mostly affects people over 60 but younger people could also be affected.
We utilize technologies such as Digital Photography, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and FDT/Visual Field to help diagnose Macular Degeneration.
Genetic. Lifestyle and nutritional counseling are the main treatment strategies in early stages. For advanced cases medical treatment with Anti-VGEF medications could help restore some vision.

Dry Eye


If you suffer from burning sensation, sandy gritty feeling, tired or red eyes you may have dry eyes. People with dry eyes either do not produce enough tears or their tears are of a poor quality.

Dry eyes can be diagnosed through a comprehensive eye examination. With the information obtained from testings, our doctors can determine if you have dry eyes and advise you on treatment options.

The dry eye treatments at our clinic include any or a combination of the following:

  • Nutritional supplements
  • Narrowing down over the counter lubricants or artificial tears
  • Prescription medications for dry eyes such as Xiidra, Restasis or Lotemax
  • Lifestyle modifications such as use of eye masks, humidifiers or eyelid hygiene
  • Tear preservation by diligent use of punctal plugs

Eye Conditions

Pink Eye

Pink Eye: Also called conjunctivitis, pink eye refers to redness and swelling of the conjunctiva, the tissue that covers the white part of the eye. It can be caused by viral infection, bacterial infection or allergies. The treatment depends on the cause and it is mostly by prescription eye drops. Most forms of pink eye, especially the viral infections are highly contagious.

Blepharitis

Blepharitis: Blepharitis refers to the chronic infection and inflammation of the eyelashes along the lid margins. Eyelashes with blepharitis tend to be crusty. If untreated blepharitis can cause itching and burning of the eye and also lead to styes. Lid hygiene and prescription medications are effective in controlling Blepharitis.

Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)

Amblyopia (Lazy Eye): Lazy eye is an eye that is healthy but not functionally developed so it is usually dependent on the other eye. The cause could be uncorrected vision in childhood or crossed eyes. If lazy eye is detected early in life and promptly treated, reduced vision can be avoided. Treatment consists of full correction of the vision in the affected eye accompanied by vision therapy.

Astigmatism

Astigmatism: Regular astigmatism is the most common form of astigmatism that is due to the cornea (front part of the eye) being shaped like a football and not round like a basketball. Regular astigmatism can be corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses or even LASIK. Irregular Astigmatism, however, is less common and is due to irregular surface of the cornea. Irregular Astigmatism could be best corrected with specialty rigid lenses. Some forms of irregular astigmatism are due to Keratoconus. We diagnose most forms of Irregular Astigmatism and Keratoconus using Corneal Topography , and provide treatments with Specialty Contacts for Keratoconus.

Vision Therapy

Vision Therapy


Vision Therapy can be a great option for people of all ages. Here are some examples of when vision therapy can help adults and children:

  • Learning Disorders or Developmental Disorders
  • Difficulty with Reading
  • ADD / ADHD
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Dyslexia
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Stroke
  • Lazy Eye, or Amblyopia
  • An eye turning, or Strabismus as an alternative or supplement to surgery
  • Athletes needing to enhance their visual skills

Vision Therapy can even work to enhance other therapies such as, occupational, speech, physical and chiropractic. Together, these therapies can help patients achieve optimal performance in every aspect of their lives.

Vision Therapy consists of a scheduled number of sessions to the Vision Therapy Clinic at Family Eyecare of Roswell. You will work with both Dr. Rosalyn Coleman (Dr. Roz) and her vision therapy assistant during your therapy sessions. Sessions typically last around 45 minutes and consist of a variety of in-office and at-home activities that are customized to your individual vision needs.


Schedule an appointment for a Developmental Exam with Dr. Coleman to see if vision therapy can help you.

Myopia Control


Myopia (Nearsightedness) in children is fast becoming one of the largest world epidemics. In the year 2000, 23% of the total world population were nearsighted. That figure is expected to go up to nearly 50% by the year 2050, affecting roughly 5 billion people! Many factors, such as increased near work, lack of outdoor activities and electronic devices are to blame for this rising global problem.

The good news is there are ways to protect your children from the fast-growing progression of myopia, which will help them have healthier eyes throughout their lifetime.

At Family Eyecare of Roswell, we utilize four major treatments for myopia control:

  1. Orthokeratology (Ortho K / CRT): Overnight contact lenses that eliminate the need for correction during the day and keep your eyes stable through the teenage years and beyond.
  2. Multifocal center distance soft contacts
  3. Atropine eye drops utilized in very low concentrations
  4. Eyeglasses with milder near prescriptions that also have blue-blocker coatings which protect against harmful blue light, emitted by electronic devices and LED bulbs.

LASIK Evaluations


LASIK is a valuable and popular option for correcting a large range of nearsightedness, moderate amounts of astigmatism, and small degrees of farsightedness. LASIK is not an option for everyone. Among the most important considerations for successful LASIK are age, general health, prescription stability, corneal topography, corneal thickness and dry eye conditions. All patients who wish to have LASIK need to go through a comprehensive eye evaluation first. At Family Eyecare of Roswell, we have the combination of technology and professional expertise to determine if LASIK is right for you. Also, in case you do not qualify, we can recommend alternative surgical or non-surgical options.

Our office works with some of the best local LASIK surgeons and we have performed hundreds of pre-surgical and post-surgical evaluations for satisfied LASIK patients since 2001.

Urgent Eye Care


If you ever develop a need for urgent eye care, our office will make every effort to accommodate you on the same day. On a daily basis we manage pink eye, foreign matters in the eye, eye pain, and flashes and floaters.

If you encounter an eye-related emergency during non-business hours, we recommend contacting Woolfson Eye Institute at their after-hours emergency phone number at (770) 804-1684.
