Below are some of the many conditions our optometrist can treat and how we can help.
Myopia is a refractive error of the eye, which means that light entering the eye is not focused properly on the retina. We offer corrective lenses such as eyeglasses and contact lenses to address myopia, as well as vision therapy services for those who may benefit from this type of treatment.
Hyperopia is another refractive error in which light entering the eye is not focused properly on the retina, causing difficulty with near vision. Similar to myopia, we can provide corrective lenses and vision therapy services to help treat hyperopia. We may also recommend orthokeratology or refractive surgery, if applicable.
Presbyopia is an age-related condition characterized by a decreased ability to focus on near objects. Common treatments for this condition include eyeglasses with bifocal or multifocal lenses, as well as contact lenses and vision therapy.
Amblyopia is a condition in which vision does not develop properly in one or both eyes, usually occurring during early childhood. Treatment for this condition can include eyeglasses, patching of the dominant eye, or vision therapy. We may also recommend medications such as atropine eye drops or lidocaine patches if applicable.
Glaucoma is a condition characterized by optic nerve damage caused by high eye pressure. Treatment for this condition usually includes medications or surgery, as well as lifestyle modifications such as quitting smoking or adopting a healthier diet. We can provide various treatments and follow-up visits to help manage glaucoma and reduce the risk of further vision loss.
Diabetic retinopathy is a condition caused by high blood sugar levels that can lead to vision loss. Treatment for this condition includes laser surgery and medications, as well as regular eye exams. We can recommend lifestyle modifications or dietary changes to help manage diabetic retinopathy and reduce the risk of further vision loss. We also recommend staying on top of your diabetes management for the best risk reduction.
Cataracts are a common condition characterized by the clouding of the eye’s lens. Treatment for this condition usually involves surgery to remove the cataract and replace it with an artificial lens. We can provide pre- and post-operative care, as well as advice on how to reduce your risk of developing cataracts.
