Conditions We Treat:
Glaucoma is marked by two features: damage to the optic nerve and loss of the visual field, often described as "peripheral vision." Our team offers advanced glaucoma treatment to protect the optic nerve from further harm using methods such as oral medication, eye drops, and laser surgery.
Cataracts usually occur as a result of aging and can cause cloudy or blurry vision, impaired depth and color perception, and frequent eyeglass prescription changes. To restore vision, we offer cataract surgery, during which we can remove the cloudy lens and replace it with a clear, artificial lens.
Patients with type I or II diabetes can develop diabetic retinopathy, a degenerative disorder that damages the blood vessels in the retina. This can result in significant vision loss and blindness. To prevent the condition from progressing, it is crucial to catch it in its early stages.
Macular degeneration causes the center of the retina to weaken and results in central loss of vision. While neither dry nor wet macular degeneration can be cured, this disease can be effectively treated with laser or surgical therapy if identified in its earliest stages.
The cornea is a multi-layered, dome-shaped covering that protects your eye and contributes to your vision quality. For patients with minor corneal issues or more serious conditions such as Fuch's dystrophy and recurrent corneal erosion, our team provides effective diagnosis and treatment.
Flashes and Floaters
It is common for patients to see specks or lines that float in their field of vision, or experience flashes of light that seem to come from the corner of the eye. While not typically not a problem, a sudden increase in flashes and floaters can indicate a retinal issue that may require treatment.
Dry eye syndrome occurs when your eyes do not produce enough fluid to keep them sufficiently lubricated. Symptoms include a burning or foreign body sensation, a tired look or feel, blurred vision, or light sensitivity. We offer several treatment options for dry eye, including prescription eye drops.
There are a number of relatively minor conditions that can affect the eyelid, causing discomfort and impacting your appearance. We can diagnose and treat a variety of conditions, including styes, edema, swelling, blepharitis, and ptosis. We offer customized treatment plans to address your needs.
Astigmatism is one of several types of refractive errors that interfere with vision. When the cornea, the clear part in front of the eye, is abnormally-shaped, it prevents light from reaching the retina. Most astigmatism is easily corrected with glasses or contact lenses.
Because the structure of the lens grows stiffer as we grow older, many patients in their 40s start losing their close-up vision. However, like hyperopia, this age-related condition can be correct with glasses, contact lenses, or IOLs.
Caused by an unusually elongated eye structure, farsightedness is a refractive error leave patients' close vision blurred. In general, patients only need to wear corrective glasses or contact lenses while reading, working on the computer, or other close-up activities.
Also known as short-sightedness, myopia is the result of a refractive error that leaves patients with blurry distance vision. Most patients with myopic vision need to wear corrective eyewear throughout the day.
If the retina at the back of the eye shifts out of position, it can cause sudden changes in vision, including flashers, floaters, and a significant reduction in eyesight. This emergency condition requires immediate treatment to prevent permanent vision loss.
