Healthy Eyes for Lexington
Eyes on Lex is here to help you with all of your eye health and eyewear needs. From comprehensive eye exams to fantastic eyewear, we will help you with exactly what you need.
Who We Are
Located in the heart of the Bluegrass in Lexington, KY
Eyes on Lex is grabbing the baton from Dr. Steven Colwell at Optometric Associates where he has served patients for over 40 years.
We are proud to carry on a tradition of excellent primary eyecare in Lexington.
Dr. Callihan has served patients in Central Kentucky for 18 years and is residency trained in geriatrics/low vision/ocular disease. She has also spent 18 years working with one of the premier vision therapy/neuro-viusal performance clinics in the state. She is proficient at diagnosing binocular vision problems and working on treatment plans and referrals for vision therapy when needed.
Comprehensive Eye Exams
Comprehensive eye health exams are the heart of our practice. Our mission is early detection and prevention of eye disease so that our patients can enjoy the gift of sight for a lifetime.
Myopia, or nearsightedness, is about more than just having to wear glasses. Myopes are at greater risk for many other ocular conditions such as retinal detachment, glaucoma, and earlier onset of cataracts. New technology allows us to better control the progression of nearsightedness in our children to help ensure them a lifetime of healthy eyes.
Floaters and Flashes
Flashes and floaters can potentially be signs of a serious ocular condition, and sometimes they are benign. If you are experiencing these symptoms, allow us to examine you right away to help prevent vision loss.
Approximately 13.7% of Kentuckians have diabetes, and diabetic eye disease is a leading cause of blindness. Annual diabetic eye exams are crucial for the early detection and intervention of potentially sight threatening complications from this disease.
Red eyes can be caused by any number of conditions: dry eye, allergies, infection, and contact lens overwear just to name a few. Let us help you get to the underlying cause and appropriate treatment so that you can be bright-eyed once again.
We are well-equipped to handle many ocular emergencies and minor traumas such as abrasions and foreign bodies. Sight-threatening retinal tears and detachments can be detected and co-managed with some of the top specialists in the state.
