Our practice gives you the combined benefits of care and treatment from a medical doctor, with a full optical boutique so that you can get your prescription glasses and contacts made right here. At the office of Michael Lim, MD, we’re committed to outstanding eye care and maximum convenience. We know that our patients have busy lives, and our New Mexico ophthalmologist office is respectful of your time.
Because your eyes go through so many changes with the passage of time, a yearly comprehensive eye exam is recommended for all adults. There are two aspects to this visit. First, your vision will be tested. This involves basic methods such as having you read from an eye chart, and a refractive assessment, in which our eye doctor checks your vision with lenses of various strengths. Doing so makes it easy to write a perfect prescription that will meet your needs, whether that is for correcting your nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, presbyopia, or some combination of those vision issues. You will also be screened at our New Mexico ophthalmologist office for the most common diseases; the ones that don’t reveal any noticeable symptoms in their early stages. In addition, we provide glaucoma diagnosis and management, as well as diabetic screenings in order for anyone who has type 1 or type 2 diabetes to be proactive regarding the effects that the disease can have on your vision and the physical health of your eyes. You can also depend on our New Mexico ophthalmologist office for emergency treatment for when you have a foreign object stuck in your eye, discharge, an infection, chemical contamination, or any other matter related to your eyes that calls for immediate attention.
For matters both routine and urgent, all you need do is call our office and we will arrange an appointment for you. For emergency care, we will make certain that you are seen by our eye doctor as quickly as possible.
