Examination services:

Harmon, Petty, and Cole of Paoli, IN offer eye care exams to Orange County and surrounding counties. We treat patients of all ages and use some of the latest eye health care technology for our exams to ensure you’re getting the best quality eye care possible. Our treatment ranges from a routine eye exam to injuries and infections of the eye to treatment for glaucoma and diabetic eye conditions.

We use a digital photography system to make a record of the inside of your eye. This will help us to discover potential problems with your eyes sooner by comparing these images from one exam to another. In addition, we use computerized eye imaging (called Optical Coherence Tomography), that allows us to see a 3D image of your retina and optic nerve in cases where we need more detailed information about your particular eye condition.

Our Eye Care Services Include:

  • Comprehensive eye exams
  • Routine diabetic exams
  • Glaucoma exams and care
  • Treatment for eye injuries
  • Treatment for eye infections
