Eye Care Treatment at Primary Eyecare & Optical of Meridian
Eye disorders can make one's life uncomfortable and lead to various vision complications if not treated on time. Our optometry professionals recommend regular eye checkups for early detection and treatment of such conditions. At Primary Eyecare & Optical of Meridian, we offer a wide range of eye care services to patients in and around the Meridian area.
Glaucoma is a condition that affects the optic nerve of the eye that worsens over time. It results from a buildup of pressure in the eye. There are different types of glaucoma and mainly affects adults over the age of 40. Special eye drops can help lower the pressure in the eye and decrease fluid buildup. Oral medications that improve eye drainage and laser surgery are also viable options for treating glaucoma.
Macular degeneration affects the central part of the retina and can lead to severe vision loss. Symptoms include blurry vision, difficulty seeing in dim light, or straight lines that appear wavy. While there is no cure for macular degeneration, there are ways to slow the progression of the disease. For example, regular exercise and a healthy diet, along with wearing sunglasses, can assist. Also, laser surgery and medication are opinions for more severe cases. Early diagnosis is the best method to manage macular degeneration effectively.
Seasonal allergies have a host of symptoms that range from mild to severe, including:
- Watery, itchy, and irritated eyes
- Congestion and headaches.
- Dry eyes
We often see patients suffering from a combination of eye irritation and nasal congestion when dealing with seasonal allergies. Our professional staff can thoroughly examine your eyes to be aware of what triggers your allergies. It's essential to know what triggers your allergies to avoid interacting with the irritants.
Infections affect your eyes in many ways, and symptoms can even affect your eyelids and corneas. Symptoms include eye pain, burning sensation, excessive tears, or irritated eyes. Our optometrists will need to examine your eyes to determine the best course of action for treating them. Different medications ranging from eye drops to creams can help get your eyes back to a healthy state. In addition, you should avoid wearing contact lenses until your infection subsides.
