Dr. Vernon I. Shibata, OD
Facilities and Equipment
Dr. Shibata provides quality eye care services that include but are not limited to:
Comprehensive vision examinations and testing:
Although many patients visit their eye doctor to simply obtain a new eyeglass prescription, your eye doctor is also concerned about the total health of your eye. A comprehensive eye exam, with dilation (expanding the pupil in order to view the inside of the eye with a microscope), is a crucial part of maintaining your whole-body wellness. While patients under 50 may wait several years between eye exams if they have no visual problems or risk factors, we recommend a dilated exam at least biannually for patients over age 50 and annually after age 65.
Contact lense fitting
Dr. Shibata specializes in fitting you with the most comfortable lense to fit your daily needs. His proficiency in custom fitting hard/gas-permiable contact lenses has earned him great satisfaction from hundreds of his patients over the years.
Dr. Shibata is also able to fit various soft, toric, and colored lenses.
