In addition, Brookside Optometric Group is fully equipped to help her monitor retinal diseases such as macular degeneration, and to treat glaucoma.
“As much as I love seeing new patients, it is also so gratifying to see my returning patients to check up on what has happened in their lives since we last spoke,” says Dr. Laurel.
When appropriate, Dr. Laurel can introduce a myopia control program for her young patients where she uses disposable soft contact lenses to slow down the progression of nearsightedness in kids under 12 years old.
In 2012, Dr. Laurel had LASIK surgery after wearing glasses and contact lenses for over 15 years. She is happy to share her experience with you, and can answer any questions regarding LASIK.
