Drs. Dobbins and Letourneau speak often about the importance of regularly scheduled comprehensive eye exams, which they are happy to provide to the residents of Baldwin City and its surroundings. These eye exams are important for children to be sure that they have proper eyesight for school and extra-curricular activities. With Drs. Dobbins and Letourneau, your child's eye exam will extend beyond the traditional eye chart reading that is often associated with a pediatric school readiness exam. They will also check for other essential school-readiness skills such as your child's eye teaming ability and hand-eye coordination, as well as eye conditions, such as strabismus and amblyopia, that often show in childhood, may hinder your child in school and in life in general, and can get much worse if not treated in early childhood.
For adults, routine comprehensive eye exams are important for screening for common eye conditions, such as glaucoma, retinopathy and macular degeneration, that are often linked to aging, especially for those over 40. These conditions often may show only slight symptoms, if any at all, and may not be detected in time to prevent significant visual damage if you are not cautious to have your eyes screened regularly for these and other sight-threatening conditions.
Dry eye syndrome is another condition that our trusted Balwin City eye doctors, Dobbins and Letourneau, are expert in treating. Dr. Letourneau explains, “Dry eye syndrome is an eye condition in which the eye is either unable to create enough tears to coat the eye, or the tears are not made properly to keep the eye comfortably hydrated. Many treatment options exist for this unfortunate condition, and we invite anyone in the Baldwin City community who is suffering from dry eyes to come in and see which treatment options benefit them the most.”
Drs. Dobbins and Letourneau have many years of experience in dealing with various eye-threatening conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, retinal detachment and many more, and they are proud to bring to the Baldwin City area the latest technology for the early detection and treatment of these conditions. Comments Dr. Dobbins, “We offer the latest cutting edge technology to our patients because we understand that the best way to ensure our patients' long term eye and visual health is to ensure the earliest detection and treatment. Early detection and treatment translates to the best chance of successful patient outcomes.”
