At the time of your eye examination, Dr. Shaghoyan will determine whether
a dilation is indicated, depending on personal history, family history, age, symptoms, and significant findings. The dilation may last a few hours, but you will be able to drive home; only your close reading vision may be blurred for a few hours.
Consultation/ Co-Management - Part of your initial examination would be to determine whether you are an ideal candidate for LASIK or other refractive surgeries (such as ICL, and intacts). Prescription, astigmatism, bifocal, age, pupil diameter, corneal thickness, and dryness are all factors in determining this. If it is determined that you are ideal, we will refer you to the appropriate surgeon, and be involved in the pre and post-op visits in your continuum of care.

The latest (3rd generation) disposable contact lenses are our specialty - high oxygen transmission silicone hydrogel contacts. They are available in all modalities – from daily disposable to monthly, and for all prescriptions - including astigmatism and bifocal. Besides high oxygen transmission, these lenses are more comfortable, moister, have more flexible wearing schedules, and are healthier for the eyes.
Contact lenses used to slow or stop myopia progression — typically overnight orthokeratology, and to a lesser extent, special-design soft lenses — can focus light on the back of the eye (the retina) in a way that signals the eye to slow or stop its lengthening process.
