Dr. Kara Fedders takes the time to get to know you, your eye care history, and your vision needs. Our eye doctor provides the expert care, advice, options, and follow up you need whether you are a new patient or an existing one.

Dr. Fedders is here for pre and post-surgery care for glaucoma and she treats all different types of eye emergencies. Our comprehensive eye exams feature the use of the optomap, an anterior and posterior camera, which takes pictures of front and back of the eye so we can diagnose and give you the best care possible.

Q&A Dr. Kara Fedders Answers Your Eyecare Questions

Q: Do you have any recommendations for people to help them avoid Dry Eye issues?

A: Remember to blink! Normally you blink about 15 times per minute. When you are working on a computer your blink rate can drop to 3 times per minute. Follow the 20/20 rule. Every 20 minutes take a 20 second break and look across the room to relax your eyes, and blink. Stay hydrated and take 1000 mg of fish oil each day.

Dr Fedders and her friendly staff make every visit great. I’m treated with respect, and my concerns are always looked at and cared for. It’s a small office, but with a big heart! I’m super cheesy, but they’re good people and I hope it comes across the same for you at your visit.
