Our optometrist's services include treating various types of eye infections. First, it involves a thorough examination to diagnose the specific type of infection. Then, we may have to prescribe topical or oral medications. Although if your condition worsens, we will refer you to a specialist for advanced treatment. Educating patients on proper hygiene and prevention measures is also essential.
Seasonal allergies can cause a range of symptoms. Some are tolerable, while others may have you coming in to see our optometrist. For example, you should schedule a visit if you're experiencing symptoms such as sneezing, watery and itchy eyes, congestion, headaches, and dry eyes.
Our patients commonly experience both eye irritation and nasal congestion, and our staff can conduct a comprehensive eye examination to determine the specific allergens causing the symptoms. Identifying these triggers is crucial to avoid exposure and help alleviate discomfort.
Macular degeneration is a progressive eye disease that affects the macula, or the part of the retina responsible for central vision. There are two types of macular degeneration: dry and wet. Although there is no cure for either form, we have some treatments available to slow the progression of the disease and preserve vision, such as vitamin supplements, laser therapy, injections, and implantable devices. In addition, we've found that early diagnosis and quick treatment are crucial to help our patients maintain their quality of life and independence.
Glaucoma is another progressive eye disease that can cause permanent vision loss if left untreated. Its treatment typically involves reducing intraocular pressure, which you can achieve through eye drops, oral medications, laser therapy, or surgery.
The approach our eye doctor will use depends on the type and severity of the condition. Early diagnosis and consistent treatment are crucial to slow the progression of the disease and prevent vision loss. We also recommend regular monitoring to ensure the effectiveness of treatment and make any necessary adjustments.
