Dr. Steven Ulc provides comprehensive eye exams to patients of all ages. Being able to care for patients from the very young to the elderly is one of the aspects of optometry he finds most rewarding. During a comprehensive eye exam your refractive status (prescription) will be determined, the overall health of your eyes evaluated, as well as the binocularity of your visual system (how well your eyes work together as a team). Visual conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia will be determined. Treatment options such as glasses, contact lenses and LASIK will be discussed.
The overall health of your eyes is of utmost importance to Dr. Ulc. Your eyes will be fully evaluated for ocular health diseases and conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration and diabetic related eye diseases, to name a few. If an eye disease or medical condition is diagnosed, treatment options such as prescription eye drops, oral medications, vitamin, and lifestyle options will be reviewed and provided. If surgery or a specialty eye care need is evident you will be referred to the appropriate provider. We have excellent working relationships with local specialists.
