Uptown Eye Care is proud to be participating in Pre-K Exam Day. On August 1st & August 2nd, Dr. Mary Gregory (chair of the Minnesota Optometric Association Children’s Vision Committee) will be offering no cost eye exams to 4 and 5 year olds that will be entering kindergarten this fall.

We are proud to announce the addition of OCT technology, or Optical Coherence Tomography, to our office. With this technology, we now have the ability to diagnose and monitor diseases of the retina, including Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), Macular Edema (CME) and Glaucoma. Our new OCT allows us to diagnose these diseases early on, and create detailed treatment plans to limit their impact on our patients’ lives.

At Uptown Eye Care our mission statement says, in part, “Our entire team is dedicated to providing you and your family with superior eye care.” Our desire is that everyone has access to superior eye care. Sadly, in many parts of the world, those in need of vision care have no where to go and no one to provide for their needs.
In an effort to help meet the eye care needs of people around the world we have chosen to support Optometry Giving Sight, an organization dedicated to improving the quality-of-life of people who are needlessly blind or vision impaired. Optometry Giving Sight is the only global fundraising initiative that specifically targets the prevention of blindness and impaired vision due to uncorrected refractive error – simply the need for an eye exam and a pair of glasses.
The InfantSEE program offers you the ability to take an active role in your child’s vision health, an important aspect of any child’s developmental process.
