Welcome to Stewart Family Eye Care
Eyes are important indicators of overall health, and comprehensive eye care goes beyond a prescription for glasses or contact lenses. At Stewart Family Eye Care, we take the time to get to know you, your eye care history, and your vision needs. Dr. Stewart provides the expert care, advice, options, and follow up you need, whether you are a new patient or an existing one.
Meet Our Doctor
Stewart Family Eye Care is proud to offer the Optos Daytona Optomap retinal exam. It is fast, painless & comfortable. Nothing touches your eye at any time – suitable for the whole family. Available at both locations. Using low-power laser technology, your eyecare professional can take a wide, instantly-viewable and detailed digital scan of your retina (the area responsible for processing images). All in real time. And in no time. Without the use of pupil-dilating eye drops.
Diagnosing Dry Eye Syndrome Tear Osmolarity Testing
We are pleased to offer the absolute gold standard in the diagnosis of dry eye syndrome, tear osmolarity testing, at our South Carolina eye care centers.
The TearLab® tear osmolarity testing system is the most accurate and effective tool for diagnosing dry eye available. It not only allows our eye care professionals to provide a timely and precise diagnosis of dry eye syndrome but also to track the efficacy of the therapies we use to treat dry eye. It truly is one of the most valuable pieces of technology we have ever integrated into our practice.
Q&A with Dr. Stewart
Dr. Stewart Answers Your Eye Care Questions
Are some people more prone to having Dry Eyes than others?
What is the difference between an eye exam geared towards wearers of glasses and an eye exam geared towards wearers of contact lens?
A contact lens exam requires special considerations compared to a glasses exam. Additional measurements of the cornea are critical for a good fitting relationship between the cornea and the contact. If the contact fits too tight, the cornea can develop abrasions on its surface. The cornea nerves can become inflamed and great discomfort will result. If the contact fits too loose, the contact can fall off of the eye. The patient has to be able to insert and remove the contact without causing injury to the cornea or the contact. Our Practice provides additional training for patients who have trouble handling their contacts. Each and every time a contact is removed, it must be cleaned and disinfected before it is reinserted or a corneal infection can result by bacteria or fungus. We provide training and review with the proper procedures to clean and disinfect contacts. Read More>
