Your eye care begins with a comprehensive eye examination in which our doctors look for evidence of eye diseases including glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration. In addition, screening is performed for health problems affecting the eyes, including signs of diabetes or hypertension, thyroid disorders, and elevated cholesterol. Vision issues such as farsightedness, nearsightedness and astigmatism are routinely evaluated during a comprehensive exam.
Dr. Kevin Tozer provides a full-array of medical and surgical treatment for corneal conditions. Learn more about corneal surgery.
Diabetes may affect the eyes in the form of diabetic retinopathy. Early detection and treatment of diabetic retinopathy can help to prevent vision loss. If you have Diabetes, it is extremely important to have an annual screening examination.
Dry eye is a condition in which an individual does not produce enough tears, or the tears are of poor quality. Tears are necessary for maintaining the health of the surface of the eye and for providing clear vision. Dry eyes may cause discomfort as well as blurred vision.
Glaucoma refers to a group of eye diseases which may cause damage to the optic nerve. In many cases, this is associated with high pressure in the eyes. A person with high eye pressure is generally not aware of it, just as one may not be aware of high blood pressure. For this reason, it is very important to be screened for glaucoma, which is part of a comprehensive eye examination. Glaucoma is most often treated with topical medications, though laser or surgery is occasionally needed to fully control eye pressures.
Dr. Tozer offers Lasik as well as other forms of advanced Eye Vision Correction. Learn more about eye vision correction.
Macular degeneration is the most common cause of serious vision loss in those over the age of sixty. It occurs when the central part of the retina, the macula, degenerates. There are two forms of macular degeneration, the dry form, which is more common, and the wet form, which is characterized by leaking blood vessels. Both forms can lead to loss of central vision. Treatment for macular degeneration may include the use of vitamins, medication injections, and laser therapy.

At Tozer Eye Center patient safety is our top concern. This is especially true during the current coronavirus pandemic. For this reason, based on recommendations from the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the governor’s office and federal agencies we are scheduling patients only for urgent care visits and emergency surgery at this time. We are rescheduling all routine eye exams and elective surgeries including cataract surgery for a later date. Routine selection and fitting of glasses will be postponed. If the patient has lost their only pair of glasses, please call the optical shop and a replacement can be ordered and mailed out without visiting the optical shop. Contact lenses can also be mailed to the patient.
We are taking special precautions for those patients we do see. We are checking the temperature of everyone, including the staff and doctors, who enters the office. Each patient will be asked a series of screening questions to determine if they might pose a potential risk of infection to other patients or the staff. We are asking that anyone who accompanies a patient wait outside in their car. Patients may also elect to wait in their car and be contacted when we are ready to bring them to the examining room. All surfaces in the waiting room will be cleaned frequently. We have removed many chairs in the waiting room and spaced the remaining chairs appropriately. The exam rooms will be cleaned after every patient. The doctors and staff are wearing masks and gloves at all times when appropriate.
Signs or symptoms for which you might call the office include:
If you feel you have an urgent problem, even if not mentioned above, please call the office at (480) 947-4493. We are spacing out the visits to avoid overcrowding the office and minimize exposure to our staff and patients.
We appreciate your understanding during this difficult, challenging time.
