LASIK


For people who need prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses to see clearly, LASIK is a dream come true! LASIK laser eye surgery can reduce or eliminate nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Who qualifies for LASIK? Generally, patients over 18 years old, in good overall health and with healthy eyes all make good candidates!

During this advanced and popular procedure, your eye surgeon will use an excimer laser to reshape your cornea, thereby correcting any refractive error. LASIK is considered safe and effective, with a short recovery. To learn more and book a preoperative consultation for LASIK, contact our West Hartford, Connecticut optometry practice.

Eye Exams


Why are eye exams from a qualified eye doctor so important? Because they are the only way to confirm that your vision is as sharp as can be and your eyes are healthy! Many vision and ocular health problems, such as glaucoma and macular degeneration, don’t present noticeable symptoms until they have progressed to a late stage.

At that point, treatment is more complicated and you may be at risk for vision loss. At Kemp Eyecare, our West Hartford, Connecticut, eye doctor will perform a personalized eye exam using the latest optometric technologies – so you can count on precise results and state-of-the-art treatments. We welcome patients of all ages, call to book an eye exam today.

Eyewear Fitting


Choosing the right eyeglasses for your face, lifestyle, personal style, and vision needs can be complicated and confusing. At Kemp Eyecare, our optical staff will be happy to help you find the perfect pair of designer frames to satisfy all of your requirements! Tell us about yourself, and we’ll direct you towards the ideal eyeglasses. We provide helpful eyewear fittings to ensure that your glasses maximize your vision and are comfortable to wear; glasses need to sit snugly on your nose and without pinching behind your ears.

If you prefer the convenience of contact lenses, our optometrist performs thorough contact lenses fittings. We’ll check your eyes to make sure you don’t have any pre-existing conditions that require specialty contacts for hard-to-fit eyes. At the end of your eye exam, we’ll fit you with the best contacts for your vision and issue a detailed contact lenses prescription.
