Comprehensive eye exam
During a comprehensive optometric examination, in addition to measuring the strength of any glasses or contact lenses that may be required, we examine the inside and the outside of your eyes in order to identify possible eye disorders and diseases.request an appointment
Diagnostic Eye Center Rodenstock
Mi Optica has developed into a revolutionary diagnostic eye center with the DNEye® scanner2+, Fundus scanner, and the ImpressionistST4 from Rodenstock. The DNEye® scanner2+ is used to make a precise 3D eye measurement at more than 7.000 points at the front of the eye. The Fundus scanner goes to the back of the eye and is used to measure the health of the eye, including the retina. It can detect all kinds of damage or abnormalities such as diabetes, glaucoma or, for example, the effects of a heart attack and high cholesterol. The ImpressionistST4 takes a 3D photo or video of the face with the glasses on. This allows it to measure all parameters in your face, making sure that you get your perfect prescription glasses. The combination of this modern technological equipment is unique in Curaçao and the Caribbean.request an appointment

Contact lens fitting
You want to switch from wearing glasses to contact lenses. But if you’ve never worn lenses before, it’s important to get the right lenses fitted by the optician first. The optician at mi optica will first ask a few questions about your daily life to see which type of lens suits you best. Your eyes are also measured during the fitting of the lenses. This allows the optician to be sure that the lenses fit your eye perfectly and feel as comfortable as possible. Some eye problems may require medical contact lenses. This may include improving the visual acuity of an eye, for example in the case of keratoconus, corneal dystrophy or trauma, or to improve the appearance of a damaged eye, to treat dry eyes, to support drooping eyelids or malfunctioning eyelid muscles, and twitching eye movements.request an appointment
Eyeglasses are used daily. After a while these glasses can become crooked or too wide and some parts can wear out. We offer you free eyeglasses maintenance if you are a regular client. In addition, we offer you replacement parts at a special discount. So don’t forget to check your eye glasses after one year.request an appointment
Glaucoma occurs from damage to the eye’s optic nerve and can often lead to loss of vision and blindness. To detect glaucoma, our highly trained doctors will perform a proper screening to determine severity, examine the damage, and help you manage your glaucoma.
Early detection of glaucoma is crucial in preventing vision loss and blindness; the earlier the better. However, there is no official cure for glaucoma. There are several treatment methods that manage, slow down, or halt the process. Treatment for glaucoma will vary depending on the stage and severity for each individual patient.
Cataracts cause a clouding of the lens in the eye, making your vision appear to be foggy. Cataracts are the most common cause of vision loss in people over 40 and are the leading cause of blindness in the world. Your eyes are meant to naturally adjust to normal light changes, adjust focus, and allow us to see both near and far. Your lens is primarily made up of water and proteins. The proper arrangement of these proteins is what contributes to normal vision. Some of these proteins clump together forming a clouding of the lens.request an appointment
Diabetic Eye Care
Diabetes can affect more than just your blood sugar. It can also do some damage to your eyes if you are not careful. Diabetic eye disease can cause vision loss if you are not careful. It can cause you to have trouble with everyday tasks even if you have regular glasses or contacts. It can even cause blindness.request an appointment
Computer Vision is a relatively new term within the optometry field and refers to eye problems associated with the prolonged use of computers and electronics that utilize a digital screen. Although it can be temporary, there are times when computer vision can strain the eyes to a degree that permanently affects your vision as well. An existing eye condition can worsen as the eyes try to focus and adjust to a computer screen, and precautions should be taken if you spend long hours in front of a computer screen. If you have been experiencing blurry vision, dry eyes, eye strain, headaches, neck or back pain, try adjusting the lighting, posture, and the distance in front of your computer screen. If computer vision symptoms persist, call us to request an appointment, we will perform a full evaluation.request an appointment
Dry Eye Treatment
Mi Optica is proud to offer dry eye treatment for our patients. Ocular Surface Disease, also known as dry eye, can occur from certain medications, naturally by aging, or as a symptom arising from systemic diseases such as Sjogren’s syndrome, Rheumatoid arthritis, or Lupus. If you have a minor case of dry eye, you may be experiencing irritation, excessive tearing, fluctuating vision, and/or a burning sensation in your eyes. Excessive dry eyes, or dry eye symptoms that go untreated, have the potential to damage eye tissue, scar your corneas, and impair your vision.request an appointment
FD is an eye disorder in which the eyes do not work well together. Your eyes should focus on one point when you look at something. The brains of a FD-patient are not able to merge the images of both eyes to one image. This gives blurred vision and can cause a long list of complaints, for example: burning and/or dry eyes, a tired feeling, a headache above the eyebrows and neck- and shoulder complaints. But also suffering from imbalance, poor eye/hand coordination en trouble with reading and writing are symptoms that may indicate FD. Do you recognize this? Try our questionnaire to determine whether FD may cause your complaints.
There are many different styles, shapes, and materials to choose from when picking out the best frames for your lenses. This can sometimes be an overwhelming and difficult decision, but at Mi Optica, we are happy to help you find the best frames for your specific wants and needs. Although frames are primarily a style choice, they are also affected by prescription strength. High-index prescriptions may limit which frames can support your lenses, but our friendly opticians are happy to help you find the right solution!
