Myopia prevention is a relatively new venture in optometry that works to try and reduce the rate of change or development of high prescriptions in children.
A thorough investigation of your child's overall health of the eye and the visual system is important because some childhood vision problems can cause permanent vision loss if left untreated.
Routine eye exams are a vital aspect of preventive eye care. Without routine eye exams, eye and vision issues often go undetected, since most eye disorders have no clear symptoms. The early diagnosis and treatment of vision abnormalities can prevent vision loss and improve overall well-being.
Patients who wear or would like to wear contacts need to undergo a contact lens exam in addition to their comprehensive eye exam. The first contact lens test will measure the eye’s surface to determine what size and type of contacts are best for the patient. Our optometrist might also do a tear film assessment to ensure the patient has adequate tears to comfortably wear contacts.
Optometrists often offer emergency services for patients requiring immediate or urgent eye care. If a patient’s eye is injured, he or she should visit an eye doctor immediately to minimize the risk of losing his or her vision. Some symptoms of common eye emergencies include sudden loss of vision, double vision, reddness or pain in the eye, pink eye, the onset of flashes and floaters, or a foreign body in the eye, especially metals or chemicals.
Dry eye syndrome is a progressive condition that can cause a lot of eye discomfort. While dry eye syndrome is rarely curable, it is easy to treat. Our optometrist will offer recommendations on how patients can successfully treat his or her dry eyes based on the severity, signs, and symptoms. Some of the most common dry eye treatments include artificial tears, Restasis (an Allergan eye drop), steroid eye drops, and more.
If a patient is suffering from red, itchy, or watery eyes, along with sneezing and a runny nose, there is a good chance they have eye allergies. Our optometrist can help patients find relief from their itchy and watery eyes, especially if he or she wears contacts. After diagnosing a patient with eye allergies, we will often prescribe special eye drops or change the type of contact lens that is prescribed, as certain varieties of contact lenses are more susceptible to accumulating allergens.
LASIK is a common laser eye surgery used to treat refractive errors, such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. Most patients benefit from LASIK as a lasting replacement for eyeglasses or contact lenses.
