EYECARE SERVICES IN HOOVER, AL
We provide computer assisted comprehensive eye exams for children and adults. Our examination includes a thorough ocular and medical history, evaluation of eye muscles, color vision, updated prescription information, medical evaluation for glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration and more.

Our care for patients with diabetes, hypertension, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and other medical conditions are extensive. We communicate with patient’s primary care physician and other specialists for ocular involvement and other medical recommendations.
We recommend that children have their first eye exam by age 3. If parent’s notice signs of an eye turn, excessive tearing, or squinting we recommend an immediate evaluation. Also, some children may have 20/20 vision, yet still suffer from focusing and eye muscle coordination disorders. These conditions can affect learning and reading, as 80% of information gathered is by vision. At Inverness Eye Care, we custom design testing and therapy programs for children with visual tracking problems and eye muscle disorders. We will coordinate with your child's teachers, tutors and reading specialists.
One of the most common ocular complaints are burning, itching, and red eyes.
