Services
 

When you come to the Clear Vision Center of South Florida for your eye health needs, you will be sure you are getting the most comprehensive services available.

From routine eye exams for every member of your family to complex treatments, our eye care professionals are committed to working with you to acheive the outcome that meets your individual needs.

Our comprehensive services include:


Refraction
repairs The majority of people seeking eye care will do so because of refractive error. Correction of such errors with external lenses ("glasses") or lenses placed over the cornea ("contact lenses") is the central function of the Refraction Service.

The term “refraction” is the bending of light that takes place within the human eye. Refractive errors include nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. Lenses can be used to control the amount of refraction, correcting those errors.

A refraction assessment helps your doctor determine a corrective lens prescription that will give you the sharpest vision. For patients with certain types of insurance, refraction can be followed by on-site dispensing of glasses. Those choosing contact lenses will be fitted accurately and will obtain appropriate education in the safe use of contacts and in general eye care.

Preoperative and Postoperative  Care

At Clear Vision Center of South Florida, our goal is to provide you - the patient - with the best visual outcome possible following your refractive surgery (UltraSight, a blade-free non-invasive all laser LASIK procedure and PermaClear, a lens replacement procedure). A key to this success is the pre and post-operative protocols we follow.

Pre-operative care includes a comprehensive vision examination to determine the unique optical systems of your eye. During this process Dr. Sabripour will examine your eyes, review the measurements and answer any questions you may have. To accomplish this, Clear Vision Center utilizes the most advanced ophthalmic equipment available.

Post-operative care is equally important and includes several post-operative examinations for up to one-year after your initial surgery. During these examinations, we monitor your progress to determine if there is a need to further sharpen your vision. Any vision enhancements deemed medically necessary by Dr. Sabripour, and which are visually beneficial with no significant risks, are included during post-operative care.

 
 
What to expect at an eye exam

An eye exam is one of the best ways to protect your vision because it can detect eye problems at their earliest stages — when they're most treatable. Regular eye exams give your eye care professional a chance to help you correct or adapt to vision changes. We can give you expert tips on reducing eyestrain and caring for your eyes.

What is involved in an eye exam 

A complete eye exam involves a series of tests designed to evaluate your vision and check for eye diseases. It doesn't hurt. Your doctor may use odd-looking instruments, aim bright lights directly at your eyes and request that you look through a seemingly endless array of lenses. Each test evaluates a different aspect of your vision.

The eye exam usually begins with Dr. Sabripour asking about your medical history and any vision problems you might be experiencing. Next, the doctor makes a quick check of your eyes using a light to ensure the exterior parts of your eyes are functioning correctly. Finally, the doctor measures your visual acuity, assesses your need for glasses and examines your eyes for signs of disease. Part of the examination, such as taking your medical history and the initial eye test, may be performed by a technician who assists your doctor.

How should you prepare for an eye exam?

If you're visiting a new eye doctor or if you're having your first eye exam, expect questions about your vision history. Your answers to these questions help your eye doctor understand your risk of eye disease and vision problems. Be prepared to give specific information, including:

  • Are you having any eye problems now?
  • Have you had any eye problems in the past?
  • Do you wear glasses or contacts now? If so, are you satisfied with them?
  • What health problems have you had in recent years?
  • Are you taking any medications?
  • Do you have any allergies to medications, food or other substances?
  • Has anyone in your family had eye problems, such as cataracts or glaucoma?

If you wear contact lenses, bring them to your appointment. The doctor will want to make sure your prescription is the best one for you. Also be prepared to remove your contacts for certain exams. Tests that use orange dye (fluorescein) to temporarily color your eye may permanently dye your contact lenses. You'll want to take them out before those types of tests.
