General Eye Care/Vision Evaluation
Eye exams are usually performed in several stages. Following initial testing by our skilled technicians, Dr. Thom will examine you and determine if further testing is needed. After your examination, he will discuss any findings and recommendations for visual correction, medical or surgical treatment, and further testing if necessary.
"From the moment I was informed it was time for Cataract Surgery (I had been checking in every 6 months with Dr. Thom) everything fell into place. Dr. Thom’s assistant Sherri walked me through the process of administrating the eye drop after surgery. It was quite simple with the chart they gave me. The morning of the surgery I was greeted by a smiling nurse who administered eye drops (pre-surgery) about every 15 minutes until I was ready for surgery. (The purpose for the drops will be explained). I was in good hands and was treated with courtesy, respect, concern and smiles for the whole operating staff. A full explanation of the surgery was given which took about ½ hour. There was no pain and I was wheeled out to the recovery area where I was served coffee and toast. I can honestly say my experience with the staff in Dr. Thom’s office and in the operating room was a personally gratifying experience. No one should have doubt about choosing Dr. Thom and the Eye and Laser Clinic for any eye condition."

"Two years ago I was diagnosed by Dr. Thom that I would need Cataract Surgery as it was progressing. I was having trouble seeing in low light conditions and there were “Rainbows” around night lights and the moon. I elected to go with the Crystalens because of the possibility of being able to focus up close without glasses. The operation was a huge success as now after one month I have 20/20 vision in both eyes and can easily read mews papers and my PDA without glasses! To me it was well worth the extra money!"
