As Therapeutic Optometrist and Optometric Glaucoma specialist, our physicians are capable of diagnosing and treating a wide variety of eye disorders including Glaucoma, Dry Eyes, Allergies, Eye infections, Cataracts and Macular Degeneration. Patient conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and many autoimmune diseases may manifest in the eye without visible symptoms to the patient. Early detection and treatment is critical in preventing irreversible damage. We incorporate the latest medical training and technology to help diagnose and treat these diseases.
Optometric Glaucoma Specialist
A thorough optometry exam includes checking for symptoms of glaucoma. To make a diagnosis, the eye care provider may measure corneal thickness, check the pressure inside your eyes, test changes to your vision, evaluate your retinas, 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 providers will determine if glaucoma may be the underlying cause.
Comprehensive Eye Exams
At Nietling Family Eye Care our Comprehensive Eye Exam goes above and beyond refracting for eyeglass prescription. Our doctors will review 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 to any concerns you may have.

Reduced eyesight is common in most eye diseases but can also be inherited or caused by injury. Let Dr. Nietling and Dr. Thomas provide you with a diligent look into your low-vision needs.

As your eye care team we can provide information on low-vision aides and resources that can help adjust to life with low-vision.
