Throughout life, individuals may experience a range of eye problems that make seeing clearly more difficult or can even threaten vision. With regular visits to your optometrist, you can manage these problems, so you can see well at every age. At Plaza Vision Center, we treat a variety of vision and eye conditions.
Refractive errors, such as nearsightedness and farsightedness, can significantly impact the ability to read, enjoy recreational activities and even to interact well socially. Corrective lenses or vision correction surgery can help individuals see more clearly.
High blood sugar levels can affect the delicate blood vessels in the eyes. A regular exam allows your eye doctor to monitor any changes in eye structures that could signal an impending problem.
Ambyopia occurs when the eyes do not function together effectively. “Lazy eye” is a common problem that occurs in children, which can be treated to create better vision for children in their academic and daily lives.
Keratoconus causes thinning of the cornea, which then bulges out, creating distorted vision. A number of treatment help to counteract the effects of this problem.
Dryness of the eyes can be caused by aging, by working at computer throughout the day or by working in dry outdoor environments. Your optometrist can offer a number of solutions to help your eye be more comfortable for daily tasks.
Redness, itching, swelling and crusting of the eyes can signal a bout of conjunctivitis, often called “pink eye.” Your eye doctor in Dallas can provide effective medications to eliminate the infection and its troublesome symptoms.
Aging can lead to a clouding of the lens of the eye that can blur vision and make colors less vivid. During your regular eye exams, your doctor can monitor the development of cataracts in your eyes and refer you to surgery, when needed.
Glaucoma is an eye disorder that involves pressure within the eyes. It is generally a problem that develops with aging. Untreated, glaucoma can lead to vision loss, but a number of treatments are available to slow the progress of the disease.
There are two forms of this condition, the “dry" type and the "wet type,” and each type must be treated in different ways to slow the progress of the disease.
