Proper vision and eye care is an integral part of routine health maintenance. The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends that children have vision testing starting at age three and see an eye doctor as needed. Adults with no signs or risk factors for eye disease should get a baseline screening at age 40, the time when early signs of disease and changes in vision may start to occur.
Certain systemic diseases are also associated with changes to the eye. The most common are diabetes and hypertension. With appropriate early intervention, potentially blinding disease such as glaucoma, cataract and diabetic retinopathy often have a favorable outcome. All patients with risk factors for these conditions are encouraged to make regular appointments with the ophthalmologists or optometrists at Refuah for testing and care.
Patient convenience is high on the list of priorities at Refuah. We offer a full-service optical shop and finishing laboratory on-site in our lobby atrium. We have three highly-skilled, friendly and experienced opticians to help our patients with all their optical needs. We carry a full line and huge selection of varied and stylish frames for everyone from toddlers to adults, and can furnish lenses from the simple to the most complex specialized prescriptions. We work directly and on a daily basis with a reputable optical surfacing lab but we keep many basic prescriptions in stock. Our patients are often surprised by the quick turnaround for their orders – sometimes even same day or next day service!
