Comprehensive Eye Exams
Regular eye and vision examinations are an important part of preventative health care. Many eye and vision problems have no obvious signs or symptoms. Early diagnosis and treatment of eye and vision problems are important for maintaining good vison and eye health and preventing vision loss.
Our comprehensive exam includes testing of visual acuity and refractive error, eye muscle coordination and balance, and thorough examination of the internal and external health of your eyes.

Optomap Exam
At Schindler and Deis Optometry, we are committed to using the latest advances in technology to provide quality eye care for our patients. It is in this commitment that we offer the Optomap retinal exam as part of your eye health evaluation.
The Optomap provides an in-depth view of the retina (the back of the eye). Your retina is the only place in the body where blood vessels can be seen directly. This means that in addition to eye conditions, signs of other diseases (like stroke, heart disease, hypertension and diabetes) can also be seen in the retina. The Optomap is quick and comfortable, with no side effects. The digital images are maintained in your file to allow the doctors to track changes and diagnose potential eye disease. This advanced technology is not covered under vision benefits, but can be billed to some medical insurance plans if documenting an existing eye disease.

Contact Lens Exams
The contact lens exam includes all the components of the comprehensive eye exam as well as evaluation for proper fit and comfort of contact lenses. Our office also provides training (if needed) in proper contact lens care, insertion and removal procedures, and signs of contact lens over wear. A brief follow-up appointment, at no additional charge, may also be required.
At Schindler and Deis Optometry we fit premium contact lenses that are designed for maximum vision, comfort, and promote long term eye health. We fit contact lenses that correct for astigmatism as well as bifocal, daily, and extended wear contacts. We also fit specialty contact lenses, including SynergEyes hybrid contact lenses and larger scleral lenses.

Pediatric Eye Exams
The American Optometric Association recommends scheduling your child’s first eye exam between 6 and 12 months. At this exam we test for excessive amounts of refractive error (nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism) and look for any eye health problems.
Dr. Hellebush is a provider in the InfantSEE program, which provides a no cost eye exam to children between 6 and 12 months. Children should be seen prior to age one, again at age three, and at age five. After age five, they should have yearly eye exams.

Surgical Referrals & Co-Management
Co-management means that an ophthalmologist of your choice works hand in hand with Schindler & Deis Optometry to provide our patients the best care prior to and after surgery. Schindler & Deis Optometry works with areas ophthalmologists to assist our patients with LASIK, PRK, and cataract surgery.

Eye Emergencies
At Schindler & Deis Optometry we have the equipment and expertise to treat most ocular emergencies. We take same day and walk in appointments for eye emergencies, such as red eyes, corneal abrasions, and embedded metal or other foreign bodies in the eye. Sudden flashes, floaters, double vision, or loss of vision may require special attention. If we are unable to treat your condition, we will make a referral to the appropriate specialist for your condition.

Vision Therapy
Vision therapy is an individualized program prescribed to improve conditions such as crossed-eyes (strabismus), lazy eye (amblyopia), and other visual disorders that can interfere with learning. Vision therapy enables individuals to learn, re-learn, or reinforce specific skills including eye movements, focusing, and eye coordination. Vision therapy is designed to prevent significant visual disorders and eliminate discomfort that may occur with common everyday activities such as sustained reading or computer use. Overall, the goal of vision therapy is to treat vision problems that cannot be treated successfully with eyeglasses, contact lenses and/or surgery alone, and help people achieve clear, comfortable binocular vision.
