Our Services

VISION CARE :

Refractions & Vision Exams:

Eyeglass exams are performed with the latest technology to give you an accurate prescription and a thorough eye health evaluation. We use wavefront aberrometry; a digital technology used by NASA to get the most precise prescription so you will be seeing your best.

Mobile & Hospital Based Eye Exams

On Wednesdays and Thursdays Dr. Meers provides inpatient eye services to patients in Hospitals, Acute Care Facilities and Chronic Care Facilities throughout Western Washington.

Contact lens Exams:

We fit contacts from all major manufacturers. If you want colored contacts, contacts for astigmatism, bifocal contacts you’ve come to the right place! We fit specialty gas permeable contacts and ultra specialized scleral contact lenses when needed. In most cases we can ship contact lenses to your door after the prescription is finalized.

Children’s Eye Exams (Preschool and above):

Adult eye exams and children’s eye exams are not equal. Tacoma Eye uses exam techniques that help children perform their best so we can get an accurate evaluation so your child sees comfortably and clearly. Call us to learn more.

NON-SURGICAL TREATMENT of EYE DISEASE:

Ortho-K (Orthokeratology) Non-Surgical LASIK alternative:

For patients that don't like the idea of surgery or want a reversible procedure Tacoma Eye offers Ortho-K. Over multiple visits we will precisely map the shape of your corneas and then create a customized contact lens. Unlike standard contacts, these lenses are designed to be worn at night. The lenses will perform a subtle corneal reshaping while you sleep. Patients take them out the next morning and enjoy improved vision without glasses, contacts or surgery! This can performed on children and adults. Dr. Meers is one of only a handful of Doctors in Pierce County certified in Ortho-Keratology.

Dry Eye & Allergy Evaluations:

We develop treatment plans for irritated and burning eyes based on the latest research to make your eyes feel better and stay healthy.

Glaucoma Evaluations:

Manage glaucoma with a doctor who utilizes state of the art technology and takes time to review your condition, explain the tests, and works with you to develop a personal treatment plan.

Diabetes Exams:

We are happy to work with your primary care physician or endocrinologist to ensure your eye health and vision is the best it can possibly be.

Emergency Eye Injuries and Eye Infections:

Skip the long ER wait and the suggestion to follow up with an eye doctor anyway. Get your eye treated by an eye expert from the beginning. We routinely treat red eyes, pink eyes, infected eyes, scratched eyes and more. It’s worth taking the time to make the call to see if we can see you.

SURGERY CO-MANAGEMENT:

Co-managing allows our office to work closely with local surgeons. Prearranged protocols have been set up between our office and the surgeons. In every hospital he has worked in over 20 years, Dr. Meers has been co-managing eye surgeries

Cataract Exams & Comanagement:

Even the best glasses won't provide clear vision if you have cataracts. We use the newest techniques in our evaluation. We help you learn what they are and the best treatment plan for you. We work very closely with the best cataract surgeons in the city to make this the best experience possible.

LASIK Exams & Comanagement:

We work with the best surgeons in the area to offer a wide range of options for vision correction surgery.

Eyelid Surgery & Comanagement:

“Blepharoplasty” is the term used for the surgical correction of drooping eyelids in older adults. Many patients term this a “mini facelift” but this surgery actually improves a patient’s vision as well - often, when certain criterion are met, insurance can be used to contribute to cover the surgery cost.

Opening in Summer 2018
