Annual eye exams are vital to maintaining your vision and overall health. Tri-State Eye Care Center offers the optomap Retinal Exam as an important part of our eye exams. The optomap Retinal Exam produces an image that is as unique as you fingerprint and provides Dr. Bill Ratcliff and Dr. Chris Ratcliff with a wide view to look at the health of your retina. The retina is the part of your eye that captures the image of what you are looking at, similar to film in a camera. Our new Ratcliff Eye Care Center Online Optical Store is now open.

One in every 10 children has undiagnosed eye and vision problems, yet few mothers take their babies to a vision care professional for a check-up. Therefore, many vision problems are not being identified at an early age, when many of those problems might be prevented or more easily corrected. In an effort to help find infants and children with vision problems, Dr. Chris Ratcliff and Dr. Bill Ratcliff of Tri-State Eye Care Center have volunteered to serve as an InfantSEE optometrists. Under this program, Tri-State Eye Care Center will provide a comprehensive infant eye assessment within the first year of life as a no-cost public health service. You may call Tri-State Eye Care at (304) 523-4819 and make an appointment for the free exam at your convenience. It is recommended you print and fill out these forms before the visit. The American Optometric Association encourages parents to include a trip to the optometrist in the list of well-baby check-ups. Assessments at six to twelve months of age can determine healthy development of vision. Early detection of eye conditions is the best way to ensure your child has healthy vision for successful development -- now and in the future. Following the assessment, in addition to sharing findings with the parents, the optometrist may send summary information to the infant?s pediatrician, family physician or other appropriate practitioners reporting and explaining any significant condition diagnosed in the course of the assessment.
