Medical Eye Care

If your eye exam indicates a need for additional testing or follow-up, Dr. Shaw will recommend a Medical Eyecare Path which would include specialized testing and evaluation for your specific condition. We accept most major medical insurance for these services. These exams are not covered by vision plans.

Common eye conditions we treat and manage through medical eye care

  • Diabetes: Diabetic Eye Exams with detailed reports to your primary care physician and/or endocrinologist.

  • Glaucoma: Diagnosis, Treatment and Management

  • Macular Degeneration
    Early detection: AdaptDx Pro (Dark Adaptation testing)
    We are one of the only practices in Western NY with the innovative technology of Dark Adaptation testing that allows us to detect macular degeneration 3 years prior to seeing structural changes
