We Offer Emergency Eye Care Services
Whether you have a foreign object in your eye, a scratch, or another eye trauma or injury, our team can help you.
We recommend our patients receive an eye exam at least once a year. During these exams, we test for various eye conditions and begin treatment as soon as possible. We also provide or update prescriptions for glasses and/or contacts. Our goal is to help you achieve your best vision and ocular health.
We perform a wide range of tests during exams to check for eye diseases, including cataracts, macular degeneration, glaucoma, astigmatism, diabetic retinopathy, and more. With the use of state-of-the-art technology, these tests are painless, efficient, and provide us with accurate results that help us perform the treatment you require.
Eye Conditions We Treat Include, But Are Not Limited To:
Cataracts are a clouding of the eye lens, resulting in blurry vision and decreased ability to see colors. People with cataracts also struggle to see at night and have light sensitivity. This condition can be treated with glasses and surgery.
Abnormally high eye pressure can cause damage to the optic nerve, resulting in glaucoma. This condition can cause blurry vision, eye pain and headaches, and even loss of eyesight in severe cases. Glaucoma is kept under control using medicated eye drops.
Macular degeneration is a condition found more commonly among older adults. Although it is not curable, it can be managed. It is the result of deterioration of the macula, or the center area of the retina. Left untreated, it can cause vision loss. Macular degeneration can be managed effectively with medication.
It is especially important for those with diabetes to receive regular eye exams. High blood sugar levels can cause damage to the blood vessels in the retina, resulting in floaters, blurry vision, difficulty seeing colors, and even blindness when left untreated. Eye drops are the most common treatment for this condition, as well as controlling blood sugar levels with diet.
Dry eye occurs when the eye cannot naturally produce enough tears to provide sufficient lubrication. Symptoms of dry eye including itching, burning, stinging, and redness. You may experience sensitivity to light and discomfort wearing contacts. Dry eyes can be treated with special eye drops.
Nearsightedness & Farsightedness
Nearsightedness, usually caused by a refractive error, results in difficulty seeing far away. Farsightedness, also usually caused by a refractive error, causes difficulty seeing objects up close. Both conditions can be treated effectively with prescription glasses and/or contact lenses.
Astigmatism is a condition resulting from irregularities in the shape of the eye. It can cause difficulties with vision, and often those with astigmatism need special contact lenses to fit their eyes properly.
Computer Vision Treatment
Computer vision syndrome (CVS) is becoming increasingly common due to the amount of time we spend on our smartphones, computers, and other screens both at work and during our free time. Symptoms of CVS include eyestrain, headaches, dry eyes, and blurred vision. These symptoms are caused by glare, poor postures while looking at the screen, putting our eyes too close to the screen, and other factors. We can diagnose CVS during an eye exam. Treatment includes glasses designed to counteract the blue light emitted from screens. We can also provide you with instructions on how you can view screens in a manner that is safer for your eye health.
Vision therapy is a treatment we use to help the eyes and the brain work together more optimally. It can be used for those who have vision problems that play a part in learning disabilities, as well as for patients with conditions such as crossed eyes, lazy eye, and double vision. A patient undergoing vision therapy will meet with one of our optometrists one to two times a week to perform specific exercises that strengthen the connection and communication between the eyes and the brain. We continue treatment until improvement is achieved.
