Our Medical Approach to Eye Care
At Bard Optical, we believe that great vision starts with great eye health, and to that end, we feel that it’s important to use the industry’s best eye care technology. Many medical conditions can permanently damage your eyes and impact your eyesight before they show any symptoms.
Dr. Atkins and his team in Jacksonville don’t stop at simply providing an updated prescription. We’ll consider your overall eye health, which helps us diagnose and begin managing eye diseases before they pose a threat to your vision.
Eye Care Services in Jacksonville, IL
Whether you use corrective eyewear or not, regular eye health exams are an important part of maintaining excellent vision. With our advanced imaging and diagnostic technology, we can identify potential issues with your eyes and begin treatment immediately. We’ll also provide a precise vision prescription, carefully checking for even the smallest changes in your eyesight. If needed, we’ll advise you on your options in glasses and contact lenses, and help you find the solution that best suits your situation.
We know that your style is as unique as your eyes. From our large collection of eyeglass frames, you can find eyewear ranging from practical to fashion-forward designer frames — whatever suits your vision needs, personal style, and budget. After you’ve chosen your new glasses, we’ll outfit them with the latest in lens technology in our optical lab.
To provide the best vision correction, contact lenses must be more than just the right prescription; they also need to be the right size, fit, and even brand, all of which we can help you select. Dr. Atkins will carefully measure your eyes so that your lenses fit perfectly. If you’re new to contacts, our team will walk you through the basics of putting them in, removing them, and taking care of your lenses. You can even order and reorder your contact lenses right from home with our online contact lens store.
