MEDICAL EYE CARE


Dr. Ito is specially trained in the treatment of eye disease. With years of experience along with the latest instrumentation, we can promptly diagnose and treat most ocular conditions. If specific specialty care or surgery is required, we will refer you to the appropriate specialist.   All necessary follow-up care will be conducted along with correspondence to your primary care physician when indicated.


Dr. Ito is experienced and certified in the diagnosis and treatment of ocular conditions such as conjunctivitis (pink eye), dry eyes and removing foreign objects that can become embedded into the front surface of the eye and lids.


Since eye therapeutic treatment is a medical necessity, these procedures are billed to your medical, not vision, insurance.  Vision insurances do not cover these treatments.  We are a provider for most PPO medical insurances, however, we are not currently on any HMO panels.  If you have questions regarding insurance coverage, we will be glad to answer them.


If you experience any of these symptoms, you should seek immediate care:
    Red, painful eye, especially if it is sensitive to light or accompanied by nausea
    Eye injury or blunt trauma

    Chemical burn (please continuously rinse your eyes with water and have someone else call for help)
    Foreign objects in the eye
    Sudden loss or change in vision
    Sudden onset of flashing lights or floaters (floating spots or clouds)
