At Goodrich Optical Comprehensive Eye Exam goes above and beyond the refraction to determine your eyeglass prescription. Our doctor will review your medical history and refractive changes. Giving you a thorough evaluation of your eye health. We guarantee to provide you with an extensive look into your vision and a detailed explanation of any concerns you may have.
A cataract is a clouding or opaque area over the lens of the eye– an area that is normally transparent. As this thickening occurs, it prevents light rays from passing through the lens and focusing on the retina. This clouding is caused when some of the protein which makes up the lens begins to clump together and interferes with vision.
In its early stages, a cataract does not generally cause any problems. The cloudiness may affect only a small part of the lens. However, over time, the cataract may grow denser, and /or affect a larger area of the lens, making it harder to see. Dr. Bosak will monitor and evaluate your cataract as it matures, and when you and he agree it’s time, we will coordinate with the surgeon to have your cataract removed and help protect and monitor your vision post-operatively.
The longer you have diabetes, and the less controlled your blood sugar is, the more likely you are to develop diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy is a complication of diabetes that affects the eyes. It’s caused by damage to the blood vessels of the light-sensitive tissues at the back of the eye (retina). Left untreated, diabetic retinopathy can result in blindness.
To protect your vision, take prevention seriously. Start by carefully controlling your blood sugar level and keeping your yearly (or more frequently, if needed) eye exams. It’s possible to have diabetic retinopathy and not even know it. In fact, it’s uncommon to have symptoms in the early stages. As the condition progresses, symptoms may include:
A Comprehensive Eye Health Evaluation includes checking for symptoms of glaucoma. To make a diagnosis, the doctor may measure corneal thickness, check the pressure inside your eyes, test for changes to your vision, evaluate your retinas and optic nerve head, and assess abnormal eye anatomy. If glaucoma is caught early, further vision loss can be prevented. Treatments commonly include medications to reduce intraocular pressure or surgery. Once detected, our skilled doctor will determine if glaucoma may be the underlying cause.
Dry eye is a chronic inflammatory condition that can cause irritation, vision distortion and an increased risk of eye infections. At Goodrich Optical, Dr. Bosak will provide dry eye patients with the treatment and managed care needed to help protect their corneal surface. Over time these treatments can significantly improve the quality of vision and comfort for our patients.

Reduced eyesight is common in most eye diseases but can also be inherited or caused by an injury. Let Dr. Bosak provide you with a diligent look into your low-vision needs. If diagnosed as a low-vision patient this means that prescription eye-wear, contacts or surgery cannot fully correct your visual needs. As your eye care team, we can provide information on low-vision aids, and resources that can help you adjust to life with low-vision.
Children’s vision exams are crucial and the timing of your child’s first eye exam is important so that the brain doesn’t adapt to blurry vision.
