Eye Conditions We Treat

Our board-certified ophthalmologist is trained to diagnose and treat virtually all medical conditions that may occur in the front portion of a person’s eye: 

  • Glaucoma 

  • Cataracts 

  • Foreign Body 

  • Trauma or injury 

  • Sudden or gradual vision loss 

  • Eyelid infections or swollen lids 

  • Sty, corneal issue and pink eye 

Glaucoma - With all types of glaucoma, the optic nerve connecting the eye to the brain can become damaged, usually due to high internal eye pressure. This damage can reduce vision and eventually lead to partial or complete blindness. It is imperative to have an annual eye exam to discover if this potentially serious condition is developing or is present. 

Cataracts - A cataract is a cloudy area in the lens of the eye that leads to a decrease in vision. Cataracts often develop slowly and can affect one or both eyes. Symptoms may include faded colors, blurry vision, halos around light, trouble with bright lights, and trouble seeing at night, “star-bursting” of light, increased light needed for reading. Cataract surgery is phenomenally effective at restoring sight to patients diagnosed with cataracts. The cataract can be removed in an outpatient surgery setting and a new IOL or intraocular lens is placed enabling the patient to see without the symptoms associated with a cataract. Cataract surgery is one of the most commonly performed surgery in world. 

Minor Eye Injuries and Infections - The eyes, especially the outer portion of the eye called the cornea, can be prone to many types of injuries and infections. From superficial scrapes to embedded foreign bodies, without proper eye protection and safety, the cornea can incur various types’ injuries or infections. Many minor scrapes or scratches may be treated with topical antibiotic drops or ointments. Sometimes, placing a pressure patch or bandage contact lens over an injured cornea is required for proper healing. Various infections such as conjunctivitis or “pink eye” as well as other environmental foreign bodies, such as plant matter, can also create infections. These conditions can often be treated after a thorough eye exam and often prescription eye drops use.
