An eye examination at McKenna and Scott Exclusive in Pinelands is not merely about finding a prescription. It is about eyecare, eye health, patient education and friendly service. Vision is not merely about the clarity of the image. It is about how both the eyes work together as a team ie. eye alignment, the contraction and relaxation of the individual eye muscles and ocular movements. These factors affect our visual performance and comfort throughout our daily tasks and activities. The majority of eye diseases are painless and can go undetected for years, leading to possible irreparable damage. Also, certain eye conditions can be manifestations of underlying systemic diseases. All these aspects of vision and health are part of our comprehensive eye examinations.

Get Your Eyes Summer-Ready

Keep dry eye at bay. Spending time outside when it is hot, dry or windy can irritate a common condition called dry eye. A hot, dry environment affects the tear film, drying out the eye’s surface. To protect your eyes in these conditions, wear wrap-around glasses to keep wind from your eye’s surface. Also, use artificial tears (preferably those that are preservative-free) to keep eyes moist and refreshed.  Very important: Always make sure you discuss and make decisions about your eye care based upon a formal appointment with your optician.
