Dr. Shams performing an eye examination

At Ocean Optical Redmond, we are pleased to offer a wide range of optometry services for our community! Our experienced optometrists can provide you with thorough eye evaluations, determine if you need corrective lenses and your exact prescription strength, fit you with the appropriate specialty eyewear, and help you pick out the most flattering pair of glasses for your face shape and skin tone.

Our new patient appointments always begin with a comprehensive eye exam. We have the latest diagnostic and imaging equipment in the industry to assist in accurate diagnosis of any eye diseases. If you are unsure of your family’s eye health history, it’s helpful to research beforehand, so we can better evaluate your own eye health. If you have never had a comprehensive exam, don’t worry! All the tests and exercises are simple and painless.

Dr. Shams can diagnose and treat eye diseases and identify general eye health problems including diabetes, anemia, high blood pressure, and others. We can also test for and fit specialty eyewear for sports, occupations, other activities and hobbies, and safety glasses.

We can answer your questions about optometry services, our eye care practice, eye health products, and more.

Myopia Management:

Are you concerned about increased screen time for your child lately? Does your child’s glasses prescription go up every time you visit your eye doctor?

Increased near work/screen time causes significant increase in myopia (nearsightedness) degree and progression in kids and teens. High progression of nearsightedness increases risk of irreversible eye conditions later in life that cannot be corrected by LASIK or wearing glasses/contact lenses. Some of these complications of high nearsightedness can lead to permanent vision loss (6 fold increase in retinal detachment and myopic macular degeneration). Historically very little has been done to slow down the progression of nearsightedness by eye doctors.

There is good news: there is reliable and strong new evidence in scientific literature in support of special contact lens designs and eye drops that can significantly slow the progression of nearsightedness in children.

Ocean Optical Redmond is pleased to offer this new service for your child. Protect your child’s future vision health by taking action now. Call our office at (425) 556-0202 or make an online appointment for your child’s eye exam and myopia management consultation.
