Looking for a Professional

Welcome To The Home Of Advanced Eye Care


Choosing the right eye doctor in Safford, AZ is a big decision. It’s been said that the eye is the window to the soul. The eye is also a window into your health! In the eye, the circulatory, muscular, and nervous systems all converge making it a unique organ to observe general physical health.  

It’s also been said that you don’t see in your eyes, you see through your eyes. The eyes are sensory organs which convert photons to chemical impulses to be sent to various parts of the brain to be processed into “vision”. 

Vision is the ability to use light to understand what is seen, and form meaningful actions or reactions. Vision also integrates the other senses of touch, taste, smell, hearing and proprioception. Because good vision depends on healthy eyes, you can count on Desert Family Vision Center to diagnose, treat, and monitor and ocular or visual disorders you or your children may have.

Comprehensive Eye Exams

A comprehensive eye exam entails checking vision, the eye itself, and tissues surrounding it. The eye doctor can assess the pressure of the eye or examine to see the eye’s movements and focus. He may also ask about any discomfort, problems, or concerns the patient has relating to their eyes. The purpose of the exam will be measuring visual acuity and ensure you have healthy vision. Other tests conducted include a retinoscopy, color blindness test, pupil dilation, and a cover test. You will also get screened for developing eye conditions such as glaucoma and cataracts. These sorts of conditions escalate if left untreated, which make routine eye exams an important preventative measure. It is professionally recommended that kids have their eyes examined at an early age. This way, any visual issues can be addressed from an early age and cut down before escalating.

Refractive eye conditions today can have serious consequences tomorrow. Myopia (near-sightedness) has long been simply thought of a harmless refractive condition. There is currently a ground swell amongst eye care professionals to consider near-sightedness not just a refractive condition but also a disease.
