At Family Eyecare Associates, we care deeply about doing what we can to keep our patients and staff safe at this unprecedented time. We continue to closely monitor the updates and changes of COVID-19 and how it affects our practice. We have decided that beginning Monday March 30th our Sparks office hours will decrease to 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM, and our South Reno office will remain closed temporarily. At this time we still are not seeing patients for their routine eye exams but are open for urgent eye care visits and scheduled glasses/contact lens pick up. We will reassess our situation on a weekly basis going forward.

Eye Health Evaluations
During a comprehensive vision and eye health evaluation at Family Eyecare Associates , you will find our care not only personal and caring, but very technologically driven and state-of the art. During your visit, we will take the time to make sure you receive the utmost of care.
Periodic eye and vision examinations are an important part of preventive health care. Many eye and vision problems have no obvious signs or symptoms. As a result, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. Early diagnosis and treatment of eye and vision problems are important for maintaining good vision and eye health, and when possible, preventing vision loss. We at Family Eyecare Associates stand behind our mission of providing the highest level of service and care to our patients, keeping your visual welfare uppermost in our minds at all times. These examinations allow us to do so.

Co-Manage Laser Vision/Refractive Surgery
If you are thinking of LASIK to correct your vision, our doctors will be happy to see you for a complimentary consultation. During this visit, we will utilize state-of-the art instrumentation to measure the corneal thickness and check for any abnormalities in the shape of the cornea to determine if you may be a good candidate for the procedure. If you are in fact determined to be a candidate, we can schedule you for a full preoperative appointment with one of our recommended ophthalmologists, where a comprehensive preoperative evaluation with the surgical team will be done. Furthermore, complete ocular health will be evaluated during this visit to ensure total candidacy. Our doctors take refractive surgery seriously, and will treat your eyes as their own. Two of our doctors are both patients of our care and both have had successful laser vision correction procedures with our surgical team. Once the procedure is completed, you will be asked to return for several follow-up appointments to be certain your vision and ocular healing is stable after treatment.
Annual Eye Exams for Diabetes
Many eye problems show no symptoms until they are in an advanced stage. More than 8 percent of the American population has diabetes. For this large group of at-risk patients, regular dilated eye exams are critical to prevent vision loss. Because of the damage the disease can do to the retina and other parts of the eye, optometrists should stress the need for regular eye care with these patients.
