State of the art microscopes allow us to examine the front surface of the eye and facial areas around the eye for infection or injury. After comprehensive assessment, a treatment plan will be formulated and explained to you. Treatment may include medications or supportive care.

Conditions We Treat
Symptoms include scratchy eyes, burning, mild redness, and gritty feeling eyes. Oral medications, reading, computer tasks and dry environments may aggravate marginally dry eyes. Dry eyes can be diagnosed using dyes to observe tear patterns and the health of the ocular surface. Treatment includes artificial tears, prescription eyes drops, allergy treatment, specialty contact lenses and punctal plugs inserted in the tear ducts.
Specialty contact lenses are utilized to manage numerous eye diseases such as keratoconus, post-refractive corneal ectasias, dry eyes, etc. These contact lens evaluation and fittings include comprehensive measurements and special training for insertion and removal.
The natural lens in the eye gradually becomes less clear as we get older. When opacities develop in the lens and the lens gets too hazy, vision will be impaired. Our office can diagnose and monitor cataract progression and care. When the cataract affects the vision to the extent that your daily living is affected, our office will recommend cataract surgery. Our office co-manages with cataract specialist in the area to provide post-operative care in a familiar environment.
Glaucoma gradually damages the optic nerve tissue in the back of the eye. The greatest danger of glaucoma stems from the fact the disease is often painless and without obvious symptoms until significant damage occurred. The most common cause is from pressure being too high inside the eye, but vascular disease and other diseases may also cause glaucoma. Our office routinely monitors for glaucoma during comprehensive eye examinations including evaluating the optic nerve structure and checking pressures. If glaucoma is suspected we utilize special equipment to further evaluate the optic nerve health and peripheral vision. If you are diagnosed with glaucoma we typically prescribe eye drops to decrease the pressure in the eye. Laser treatments and eye surgery are alternative treatments that may be recommended to treat more advanced glaucoma.
Diabetic patients should have a dilated retinal examination each year. Diabetes can affect yours eyes in numerous ways. When sugars are poorly controlled the refractive error of the eye may be affected. This may make a patient more near-sighted or far-sighted than normal. Although a glasses prescription may be difficult to obtain during these times, dilated retinal exams are still recommended. The high sugar in the blood will damage the walls of the vessels leading to leaking blood vessels. We utilize the latest technology to detect early changes in the back of the eye. If we discover advancing diabetic eye disease that requires treatment or needs further evaluation, we will refer you for consultation to a retinal specialist. A team approach is always important if your overall healthcare; after your examination with us communication will be sent to your primary care provider.
Our office provides post-surgical services after surgeries such as cataract surgery, laser surgery, refractive surgery, and strabismic surgery. We offer this in conjunction with the hospital and local eye surgeons.
