Why Choose Ballard Vision Associates?

Eyes are important indicators of overall health, and comprehensive eye care goes beyond a prescription for glasses or contact lenses. At Ballard Vision Associates, we take the time to get to know you, your eye care history, and your vision needs. Our optometrist provides the expert care, advice, options, and follow up you need whether you are a new patient or an existing one.

Top Technology

Nowadays, there is a variety of advanced, high-tech equipment that enables precise and detailed diagnoses of eye diseases and other vision conditions. We are firmly committed to staying up-to-date with all of this incredible technology! Dr. Ballard will use the latest necessary diagnostics, such as OCT Scans, Optos Retinal Exam, and Corneal Mapping, during your comprehensive eye exam in Brentwood, TN. This is the best way to inspect your eyes for signs of abnormality, as well as monitor and manage eye diseases, such as diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration.

Contact Lenses with a Perfect Fit

Contact lenses offer ultimate convenience and comfort with crisp vision. However, they need to fit perfectly for you to experience all of these benefits! Dr. Ballard, your professional Brentwood optometrist, is highly qualified to perform thorough contact lens fittings. He will use advanced technology to measure your corneal curvature and lens power, as well as examine your eyes to rule out any pre-existing ocular conditions that may interfere with wearing contacts. If you have a vision condition that makes you hard-to-fit with lenses – such as dry eyes, presbyopia, and keratoconus, we will work patiently to find the right type of specialty lenses for you! Nowadays, with customized contact lenses such as scleral, toric and multifocal, there is a lens for everyone.
