Eye Care from Your Columbia, SC Optometrist Dr. Dorothy Park

It is a common misconception that visits to the eye doctor are only necessary for people that need glasses or contacts. In reality, routine eye care is important for everyone. Getting your eyes examined once a year is a necessity to ensure the health of your eyes, to identify early signs of eye disease and even to identify other diseases – such as diabetes or hypertension. The sooner that you discover potential issues, the easier it is to treat those issues and protect your health over the long term.

Eye Care

Your Resource for Columbia Eye Care

At Dr. Dorothy Park & Associates, we provide comprehensive eye care services to patients throughout the Columbia area. Our team of trained and knowledgeable professionals can take care of all your eye care needs. From annual eye exams to choosing eyeglasses frames, we are here to assist you.

During your exam, we will look at a variety of factors to determine both the health of your eyes and your need for corrective lenses. If you do need vision correction, we will determine the right prescription strength, discuss your options for contacts and eyeglasses, and address any other vision concerns you have – like work-related or sports-related vision needs. Our services include:

Comprehensive Eye Exams

We use the latest eye care technologies, combined with tried and true medical care, to thoroughly examine your vision, the health of your eyes and more. We encourage everyone to get an eye exam at least once a year.

Accurate Prescriptions

We pride ourselves on our ability to get you the right prescription from the start. By the end of your exam, you will know exactly what prescription you need for contacts and eyeglasses.

Contact Fittings

There are a lot of options out there for contact lenses. We have contact lenses for astigmatism, multifocal lenses and specialty lenses that can reshape the cornea overnight to eliminate the need for lenses during the day. If you are interested in contacts, we can explain what types of contacts are available, and advise you on what types of lenses will best suit your lifestyle and your vision correction needs.

Eye Glasses

There is a greater variety of eyeglasses available than ever before. Once we understand what your needs are, we can point you towards lenses that will be a perfect fit – and frames too! Our prices are competitive, and our quality is second to none.

Children’s Eye Care

Our pediatric eye care services can help you ensure that your child is able to get the most out of life. Regular eye exams ensure good health, while high quality eyeglasses make it possible for your child to see the world clearly.

Eye Diseases

Our highly trained eye care professionals can diagnose and treat the majority of eye diseases, including cataracts and glaucoma. Not all eye diseases have obvious symptoms, which is why it is so important to get regular eye exams. The sooner we identify a problem, the sooner we can apply the latest medical treatments to improve your condition.

We Take Most Vision Insurance

If you have vision insurance, there is a good chance we accept it.
