Once you enter the doors of FocalPoint at Crosstown Concourse, the first step in our process is simply discussion. We want to know what you are feeling, what you are or are not seeing, and how long this issue has been in place. Before our team does anything, we need background information.
From there, we complete an examination. This exam allows our team to fully grasp the vision issues that you may be having as we look for the root cause.
After our eye doctors determine the best course of action, we prescribe a solution specific to you. Our goal is to provide the best service and the best results, creating a clearer vision for the future. We hope your experience with us portrays that.

A cataract blurs and clouds one of your eye lens, diminishing the clarity in your vision. It forms when protein in your lens gathers and forms a blurred spot. Initially, the spot is miniscule and should not impact your vision much. Over time, though, the cataract grows and affects more and more of your eyesight.
While the majority of cataracts are related to growing age, a cataract can form in anyone.
Patients more at risk for a cataract typically have one of the following characteristics:
Prevention includes wearing sunglasses and not smoking.
Treatment for an early cataract may include new eyeglasses. An enlarged or growing cataract usually requires surgery to remove the cloudy lens and replace it with an artificial lens. Our optometrists work directly with professionals at The Eye Center who perform cataract surgery with the goal of giving you back the clarity in your vision and improving quality of life.
The professionals at FocalPoint at Crosstown Concourse understand that each patient’s eyesight is unique and work to find a solution that works best for you.
Commonly referred to as digital eye strain, CVS forms in patients when they consistently stare at a screen – computer, tablet, and smartphones. As the average American spends more and more time looking at screens, the likelihood of experiencing CVS increases.
If you have stared at a screen for a prolonged period of time, you recognize the effects: headache, eye strain, blurred sight, and possible upper body pain.
To avoid the effects of CVS, you should follow these suggestions:
The optometric physicians at FocalPoint can determine if a special pair of glasses or contact lenses will help your eyes to feel more relaxed when looking at digital devices.
Striking a balance between simply doing your work and maintaining your vision can be difficult. We will help you manage it.
Farsightedness (hyperopia) results when a patient sees distant objects clearer than nearer objects. Simply, your eye is focusing its sight behind the retina, resulting in a clouded image for those items closer to the eye.
This eyesight problem is relatively common with more than 3 million cases of hyperopia in the United States each year.
If you believe you are farsighted, the optometric physicians at FocalPoint can help by prescribing boutique eyeglasses or contact lenses that fit you and your lifestyle.
Nearsightedness (myopia), in contrast, occurs when a patient clearly recognizes nearer objects and blurs distant objects.
Myopia affects approximately 30 percent of the United States population.
FocalPoint sees patients experiencing problems with nearsightedness daily and is eager to help you. Following an examination, we discuss your options and see what selection is best for you. To immediately help your nearsightedness, the team of eye doctors provide you with designer eyeglasses and/or contact lenses so that your distance vision is just as clear as your near vision.
