Assisted Living Facilites

Bring on-site eye care to your facility today.

Very few assisted living residents receive the eye care they need.  Long Island Optometry Care provides comprehensive eye exams to residents for diabetes, glaucoma, macula degeneration and my other eye diseases.  We bring the latest mobile equipment to your facility in order to ensure that your resident’s eyes stay at optimal health.  Residents will also be able to choose from a wide array of glasses during our visit.

Treating visual impairments can help to resolve problems with balance, falls, and injures such as fractures, cuts, and scrapes or even the need for hospitalization.  On-site vision care can help patients enjoy a greater quality of life.

Nursing Homes

Let's spot and treat them!

Each resident will be offered a comprehensive eye examination upon admission to the facility.  Thereafter, residents will be provided with comprehensive annual exams and routine intermittent follow-ups.  Treatment of emergency cases, as they may occur, will be tended to expeditiously.

During residents’ comprehensive examinations, major systemic diseases that may present with ocular manifestations will be evaluated.  Systemic diseases can affect both the outer surface of the eye and the retina. Thus, it is vital that residents with diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, hypo/hyperthyroidism, and many more be routinely examined. Not only do systemic diseases affect the eyes, but the long-term use of oral steroids, Seroquel (quetiapine), Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine), etc., can have ocular side effects and need to be monitored.

When ocular diseases are found, and/or are present, residents will need more than just routine care. Intermittent diseases such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, viral/bacterial/allergic conjunctivitis, etc., will be closely monitored. Often, residents will need to be managed by an interdisciplinary care team to discuss care plans.

Each resident, can choose from a wide array of eyeglasses. Residents will receive their eyeglasses approximately two weeks after they are prescribed. Residents who are prescribed reading eyeglasses may receive them the same day of examination. All residents who are monocular (have one functioning eye) may receive impact-resistant lenses for added protection. Most eyeglass repairs will be performed on site, and if they cannot they will be replacements can be made.
