Our optometrists are trained to diagnose, treat and manage most eye conditions. At Uptown EyeCare, we dilate during routine exams to detect "silent" diseases, and also use the latest equipmnet to provide care for many eye conditions, including:
Tired of going elsewhere for extra tests or procedures? Retinal photos, OCTs, Visual Fields, Pachymetry, Corneal Topography and BlephEx Treatment can now be done in-house!
Uptown EyeCare has all the necessary instruments for a full-scope optometric care. These important tools are not only needed for best clinical diagnosis & treatment, but also for patient education, doctor-to-doctor communication and co-management. No more referrals to other clinics for extra services, we have the technology in-house and can now image, observe and manage most ocular conditions and save your time travelling from clinic to clinic.
If you have symptoms of "Flashes of Light" in your vision, when there is no light to explain the flashes, this could mean that there is something happening in the back of the eye. The eye does not have any pain sensors so flashes are your best clue that there is something wrong. In contrast, the cornea (the clear window on the front of the eye) has more nerve pain sensors than any other part of the body. Injury to the cornea (from foreign bodies, ulcers, contact lens complications, inflammations, etc.) can be incredibly painful.
In both cases, immediate treatment is needed. Our office staff is well trained to know how to expedite the treatment of these type of injuries. Call immediately when an injury occurs. We are here to help.
Please use our After Hours On-Call Number if you need to reach a doctor after office hours for eye emergencies: 503-294-1381. We share this service with a few local optometry clinics in the Portland area, so please be sure to identify yourself to the on-call doctor as an Uptown patient.
