Some health conditions, such as diabetes can take a toll on your vision and eye health. If you are currently struggling with diabetes, it is important that you have a trusted optometrist you can turn to for your eye care needs. Our team is trained in diabetic eye treatments and care.
Macular degeneration is a serious eye health condition that causes a breakdown of the macula tissue. This breakdown can greatly affect your vision and eye health long-term. We can provide both diagnostics and treatment for this condition.
Cataracts are another serious eye health condition that we can help you with. Cataracts are hardened tissue that can cover the eye and impair vision. This type of condition usually requires surgery. We can provide surgery and recovery treatment for cataracts.
Dry Eye Syndrome
Many people do not consider dry eyes to be a serious eye health condition, but when left untreated it can become serious. Dry eyes can also be an indicator of a more serious problem. If you are dealing with dry eyes, our eye doctor can help with medication and lifestyle advice.
Computer Vision Syndrome
As we rely more and more on our screens for work and school, computer vision syndrome is becoming a more common eye health condition. This problem is caused by prolonged exposure to the blue light that is emitted from computer screens, phones, and tablets. Over time, this blue light can have a negative effect on your eye.
Computer vision syndrome symptoms include:
- Eye pain
- Neck pain
- Blurry vision
Our team can help diagnose and treat computer vision syndrome. In most cases, the problem can be solved with a change in screen habits or with blue-light filtering lenses. These lenses can be purchased separately or blue light filtering can be added to your prescription lenses.
