Our exams are a two-part process. First, we obtain a computerized reading of your vision. Then we conduct a thorough exam to evaluate the health of your eye and the accuracy of your prescription. Dr. Martin cares for patients with many of these eye-related problems:

  • Cataracts
  • Glaucoma

  • Floaters
  • Itching and Burning
  • Seasonal Allergies
