Board-certified optometrist, Robert Roggensack, O.D. and two optometry technicians provide personalized optometry services at MCRHC.
A complete eye exam will include a review of your medical history. The eyes can be affected by a number of health conditions and medications. You will want to come to your exam prepared to answer questions about your health and any prescription and non-prescription medications you use.
Eye Health Testing
This part of your visit will require the most time. A microscope is used, your pupils are dilated and the inside of each eye is viewed using special instruments. The early signs of glaucoma, cataracts, hypertension and diabetes can be seen during this part of the exam.
Using doctor-controlled instruments the best prescription for corrective lenses is determined.
A variety of contact lenses are available from Mitchell County Regional Health Center’s Optometric Center.
- Bifocal Lenses
- Disposable Soft Lenses
- Standard Soft Lenses
- Toric Soft Lenses (capable of treating patients with an astigmatism)
- Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Lenses (Lenses made of durable, firm plastic that transmit oxygen. They are more durable and provide a crisper vision than soft contacts.)
