The optometrists and opticians at Williams & Associates Eyecare and Eyedentity Eyewear provide comprehensive eye care services and products for those who value long-term solutions and top quality customer care. We work with patients of all ages and understand the diversity of individuals’ eye care needs at various life stages. Our patients receive service and care for a full range of health conditions and concerns, including:
Dry eyes, or dry eye syndrome, is one of the most common eye and vision problems today. Left untreated, dry eye syndrome can cause severe eye pain, vision-threatening infections and other complications. Our optometrist, Dr. Williams, carefully evaluates the patient’s eyes and tears to offer a personalized and expert treatment option for the patient’s specific dry eye condition.
LASIK is a laser based procedure to surgically correct your eyes. Dr. Williams has experience in co-managing LASIK with corneal specialists in Columbia. All pre and post operative care can be administered by Dr. Williams, though a referring surgeon performs the procedure. Please schedule an appointment to see if you’re a good candidate for LASIK.
We assist with eye emergencies during office hours and if necessary after hours and on weekends. We diagnose and treat eye acute eye allergies, infections and inflammations, corneal abrasions, foreign body removal and sudden loss of vision. In addition, we provide consultations and triage with other emergency trauma and retinal specialists in Columbia.
If you’re looking to gain an edge in your sport consider optimizing your vision. Visual acuity is sharpened and depth perception is maximized to achieve this edge. Precise contact lens prescriptions correcting for small amounts of astigmatism often provide an effective solution.
Sports glasses and sunglasses also offer an advantage on the playing field. Sports glasses provide safety. Sunglasses with proper tint and polarization can enhance vision outdoors during bright conditions. Lenses providing a “wrap” around your eyes, reducing glare and distraction, allowing you to stay focused on the game.
Cataract surgery is necessary when the lens inside your eyes becomes cloudy or hazy and vision becomes blurry. Cataracts are mostly associated with age. A comprehensive eye examination is necessary to determine if you have cataracts, and if they’re ready to be removed. Pre and post operative care is given at our office, and the procedure is done by a referring surgeon.
If you prefer not to wear glasses you may consider this non-surgical process. Corneal Refractive Therapy gently reshapes the cornea while you sleep. Patients wear specially designed contact lenses at night, then removes the lenses when awaking. No other visual treatment is needed throughout the day. The procedure is great for active teens playing sports or anyone who doesn’t want to wear contacts. An eye examination is required to determine if you are an ideal candidate.
