Eye Care from the Comfort of Your Own Home
This service temporarily is not available.
At Empress Eye Clinic, we wanted to find a way to continue delivering expert eye care throughout the COVID 19 pandemic. That’s why we began offering telemedicine to our patients.
Telemedicine allows us to deliver medical eye care virtually. In a telemedicine appointment, we can do nearly everything we do during an in-person appointment, including health screenings, diagnoses, and writing prescriptions. If your eye doctor believes you’d benefit from in-person care, they may schedule you an appointment or refer you to a specialist to get you the care you need.
Are you interested in receiving eye care from the comfort of your own home? Book your telemedicine appointment today!
What Do We Diagnose Through a Digital Platform?
With advances in technology, our optometrists can now provide virtual medical eye consultations for various eye problems. During a telemedicine appointment, our eye doctors can assess the overall health of your eyes while addressing conditions and symptoms such as:
- Eye infections
- Itchy eyes & allergies
- Eye pain & redness
- Scratched eye (corneal abrasion)
- Irritated eyes
- Flashers & floaters
- Blurred or double vision
- Distorted vision
- Dry eye syndrome
How Can We Diagnose Through a Digital Platform?
During your virtual appointment, an Empress optometrist will ask you questions and take images of your eyes, just like they would during an in-person appointment. They will use this information to diagnose, treat, and manage your condition. With telemedicine, you can feel confident that you are receiving the best care from the comfort of your own home.
Paying for Telemedicine
In most cases, insurance plans will cover telemedicine visits, but we ask that you always double-check with your insurance provider before your visit.

Wow, what a great experience! I was able to book a same-day appointment after calling multiple optometrists in the area with an eye emergency. Both Dr.Heshmati and Dr.Habib took their time with me – it didn’t feel rushed at all, and they always ensured I was comfortable and were diligent in getting to the solution of my issue! Not only were the doctors exceptional, but the front desk staff went above and beyond to ensure I had my following appointments booked and that I had all my questions answered! All in all, fantastic experience. I highly recommend this location and wish other practices held to their standard.
Everyone I interacted with was very friendly, respectful, and attentive. From the person who did the eye tests to the person who helped with the glasses.
The doctor was also great. He didn’t rush and took his time explaining his observations and the next steps. He truly cares. As a healthcare professional myself, I know when I see exemplary patient care.
Thank you for the awesome service
I’ve never had an eye appointment before so I didn’t know what to expect. The staff was absolutely wonderful! Dr Heshmati was so kind and thorough and knowledgeable…he explained everything he was going to do so well and helped me with my prescription.
I had help from a wonderful lady whose name I didn’t catch…she helped me pick out the perfect frames for my new glasses and was so patient and helpful.
The staff was so friendly and approachable. I had a great experience and I highly recommend this clinic to anyone needing their eyes checked!
I wish I knew this eye clinic earlier! The eye exam was very thorough and Dr. Habib explained in detail about our testing results. The clinic has advanced machine to detect eye problems that are not normally checked. The front desk assistant was very professional as well and helped us finding eye glasses. Clinic is super clean!
