Dr. Gary W. Scearce is the founder and owner of Eagle Eye Optique. He is very thorough in the exam room and explains his findings and recommendations in plain language. Their family-owned practice opened in Crown Point in 1980 and moved to its present location in 2008. He is a member of the American Optometric Association and is a past president of the Northwest Indiana Optometric Society. Dr. Scearce is board-certified from the American Board of Optometry. We try to maintain the highest levels of integrity and honesty, and our staff is always patient-focused.
There is no other creature on Earth with sharper vision than the eagle. An eagle can be soaring high in the sky and spot dinner in the ground up to two miles away. The part of the human eye that we "look right at something" is called the macula. We have one macula per eye. And both of them are supposed to be pointed in the same direction. Eagles have two maculas per eye. One set works together for depth perception and the other maculas point off to the side. The result of this setup is that they have extremely sharp vision across a panoramic view, not just centrally like us.
Step four: While I am not a fan of the Have a problem? Take a pill! mind-set, there are times that one's problems are severe enough that medicine is necessary. I do write prescriptions for eye problems when they are appropriate. With that in mind, we have a fair selection of supplements available at our office (see step three). Also, Dr. Scearce will be glad to discuss your individual concerns. After-hours services are available.
We recommend newer-generation progressive lenses, which greatly eliminate swim, distortion, and other optical problems. We recommend aspheric lenses, where appropriate. This is to minimize thickness, weight, and image shift at the edge of the lens. Trivex is a new material that is optically clear, structurally strong, and scratch resistant. Computer lenses are available for those who spend long hours working at arm's length. These lenses are also good for musicians. Light is bent at the front and back surfaces of a lens.
