All patients receive a digital eye exam which provides a precise prescription and can pinpoint changes in your eye health over time. Advances in digital imaging can be used to detect asymptomatic retinal problems, glaucoma, and even dry eye.

Dr. Rajeev’s professional areas of interest includes myopia management using Orthokeratology lenses, custom fit contact lenses using rigid gas permeable lenses and scleral lenses. He also treats chronic eye conditions such as dry eye and blepharitis using the latest in advances in technology such as LipiFlow and Blephex treatments.
