Important
Many people are not aware that they have an eye disease because there are often no warning signs or symptoms, or they may assume that poor sight is a natural part of growing older. Early detection and treatment of eye problems is the best way to keep your healthy vision throughout your life. In many cases, blindness and vision loss are preventable.

We treat the following eye conditions and diseases.
Age-related macular degeneration is an eye condition that leads to the deterioration of the center of the retina, called the macula, leading to loss of central vision.
Eye allergies are a condition when the eyes react to an irritant or allergen, making them red, itchy, tearful and swollen.
Lazy eye is poor vision in an eye that did not develop normal sight during childhood. Lazy eye is also called amblyopia.
Astigmatism is an imperfection in the curvature of your cornea — the clear, round dome covering the eye’s iris and pupil — or in the shape of the eye’s lens, causing blurry or distorted vision.
Bacterial keratitis is an infection of the cornea, often due to improper care and cleaning of contact lenses or from injury to the cornea.
Blepharitis is inflammation (swelling) of the eyelids, where the upper and lower eyelids become coated with oily particles and bacteria near the base of the eyelashes. Blepharitis causes irritation, itchiness, redness, and stinging or burning of the eye.
Cataract is a clouding of the eye’s normally clear lens, causing vision problems.
Conjunctivitis is swelling of the conjunctiva — the thin, filmy membrane that covers the inside of your eyelids and the white part of your eye (sclera).
A retinal detachment is a very serious problem that almost always causes blindness unless it is treated with detached retina surgery.
Diabetic retinopathy is a common diabetic eye disease caused by changes in retinal blood vessels.
Dry eye is a condition where the eyes don’t produce enough tears or the right quality of tears to be healthy or comfortable.
Floaters are shadows cast on the eye’s retina from clumps of gel or cells inside the vitreous. Flashes are flashes of light that you see when the vitreous gel pulls or rubs the retina.
Glaucoma is a disease that damages the eye’s optic nerve.
Low vision is a loss of eyesight that makes everyday tasks difficult or impossible, affecting central and/or peripheral (side) vision. Low vision cannot be improved with regular eyeglasses, medicine or surgery.
Myopia (nearsightedness) is a refractive error, which means the eye does not bend or refract light properly. With myopia, close objects look clear but distant objects appear blurred.
Presbyopia is an age-related condition when the eye’s lens doesn’t change shape as easily as it once did, making it more difficult to read or see things at close range.
