At White Salmon Eyecare, we believe that annual eye and vision examinations are an important part of preventive health care. Many eye and vision problems have no obvious signs or symptoms. As a result, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. Early diagnosis and treatment of eye and vision problems are important for maintaining good vision and eye health, and when possible, preventing vision loss. In addition to receiving an eyeglass prescription at the completion of the examination, Dr. Alex will diagnose and discuss with you the nature of any visual or eye health problems found and explain available treatment options.
Comprehensive eye exams may include:
- Testing visual acuity or refractive error
- Pupil evaluation with or without dilation
- Examination of peripheral visual field
- Color vision testing
- Analysis of the visual systems
- Examination of the external parts of the eye
- Intraocular pressure measurement
- Examination of the health of the entire eye

At White Salmon Eyecare we treat all types of medical eye problems. A few of these include eye infections, cataracts, dry eyes, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and removing foreign material from the surface of the eye. Dr. Alex also performs diabetic eye exams, plaquenil testing, and post-stroke vision evaluations.
When the treatment requires surgery, Dr. Alex offers pre and post-operative care for refractive (LASIK and PRK) surgeries, cataract, and eyelid surgeries. Dr. Alex only works with the best surgeons so you can rest easy knowing he will connect you with the best surgeon for your specific requirement.

Every contact lens wearer needs to have a contact lens evaluation on an annual basis. A contact lens is a medical device. For this reason, a contact lens evaluation is performed for all first time wearers and existing contact lens wearers. This evaluation will ensure proper fit and alignment of gas permeable and soft contact lenses. In particular, the doctor will assess whether the contact lens is possibly damaging the cornea and surrounding ocular surface.
Due to advancements in technology, most contacts lenses prescribed today are disposable contacts. Disposable contacts may last 1-day, 2-weeks or 1-month. Disposable contacts reduce the risk of infections, promote breathability, enhance comfort, and decrease dryness.
