Services

Cataracts

Cataracts are common with age and can occur as early as 40 and in one or both eyes. The general description of a cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye, which can cause one’s vision to become blurry. This clouding usually progresses slowly over time, but can also happen quickly, especially after trauma to the eye.

While cataracts are not painful, they have several symptoms such as blurry vision, being able to see fewer details, a glare while driving or reading, a dulling of colors, changes in your glasses prescription and double vision in one eye. Read more…

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a common eye disorder that is, in fact, not one but an entire group of disorders with a common label. It is a disorder that damages the optic nerve, which serves to send the images from the eye to the brain.

It was once believed that glaucoma was caused by high fluid pressure inside the eye (called intraocular pressure). Experts now know that, while high intraocular pressure is a risk factor for glaucoma, it is not the only cause. Read more…

Dry Eyes

Tears are very important for the eyes, and for a number of reasons, as they not only act as a lubricant, but also a cleanser. Tears wash out dust, debris and foreign objects and also function as an antibacterial, neutralizing any microorganisms which take residence on the eye’s surface. Therefore, when tear production is insufficient, it can create many problems for the eyes. Not only are dry eyes uncomfortable, they are also more prone to injury and infection. Read more…

Refractive Errors

A refractive error is when the shape of your eye does not bend light correctly, causing blurred vision.

Refractive disorders are commonly treated with corrective lenses, whether eyeglasses or contact lenses. Some refractive disorders may also be corrected by refractive surgery. Read more…
