Clinic schedule redesigned to see more patients!

Clinic schedules have been redesigned to include routine and medical exams.  A common favorite focuses on symptoms of dry eye.  We provide advanced TearLab Osmolarity to measure the level of tear film.  It may not sound like an important feature to your eyesight, but adequate tear film will aid in great vision.

We have found the TearLab to be an important asset in helping find solutions and create a treatment plan for allergies, watery eyes, itchy and irritated eyelids.  This is the type of exam that has been set aside in addition to eye surgical evaluations.  It turns out many pre-surgery patients need to take care of their dry eye prior to LASIK or cataract surgery.

With our new schedule design, doctors can now accommodate patients within two weeks of their appointment request. For more information, please call our office  360-435-8595 or 800-755-3937, or schedule an appointment on-line, (right side column)

See You Soon,

Dr. Ballon, Dr. Wietharn and Dr. Bajenova
