All Eye Care Doctors, the premier eye doctor in Cambridge and Medford, MA, located near Porter Square and Davis Square in Somerville, offers regular eye exams that can detect more severe illnesses before they progress.
Often, patients will assume that their eye doctors are only examining their eyes. However, the optometrists at All Eye Care Doctors understand that the health of your eyes can say a lot about your general well-being, and they can detect many different conditions through comprehensive routine eye exams, such as diabetes, high cholesterol, and various nerve conditions.

Our comprehensive eye exams are thoroughly designed, using a multi-step diagnosis approach coupled with digital ocular tests, to acutely assess the overall health of your eyes. We strive to personalize your eye exam for your optical needs by listening to your concerns and balancing them with our multi-step diagnosis;
A fundus imaging is the creation of a digital image of the interior surface of the eye, including the retina, optic disc, macula, and posterior pole (i.e. the fundus). This technology allows us to evaluate the peripheral retinal health WITHOUT dilation by usage of blurring, burning eye drops. At every annual eye exam, we track and compare the images to prior years and analyze the progressions and any abnormal changes to the retinal health.
Mapping of the surface of the cornea allows very early detection of genetic abnormalities that may require special care to maintain eye health and also determines whether a patient is a good candidate for laser surgery or corneal reshaping. It enhances the ability to fit regular contacts more successfully, notably for patients with irregular corneas.
A visual field test is an eye examination that can detect dysfunction in central and peripheral vision which may be caused by various medical conditions such as glaucoma, stroke, brain tumors, or other neurological deficits. We use the latest equipment and technology to perform this test.
Pink eye treatment and relief from red eyes is just a phone call away! Typically, patients with pink, red, or painful eyes are dealing with an infection, bacterial build up, or other serious condition, so we welcome these patients in for same day appointments for conjunctivitis treatment or treatment of red eye.
LASIK (Laser Assisted in-Situ Keratomileusis) is the most common approach to refractive ocular surgery today and can help patients restore their vision without contacts or glasses. We provide LASIK vision screening services and offer an unbiased and educated opinion to you on the best procedures for eye enhancement.
