Plaza Vision Center Offers Help For Many Eye Conditions
Throughout life, individuals may experience a range of eye problems that make seeing clearly more difficult or can even threaten vision. At Plaza Vision Center, we treat a variety of vision and eye conditions.
Nearsightedness and Farsightedness
Refractive errors, such as nearsightedness and farsightedness, can affect the ability to read, enjoy recreational activities and even to interact well socially. Glasses, contact lenses, or refractive surgery can help people see clearer.
Diabetic Eye Care
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 the eye that could signal a problem.
Did you know babies are not born with 20/20 vision? Their brain has to develop the pathways for good vision. Ambyopia occurs when something prevents this normal development, including eye turns or high prescriptions. “Lazy eye” is a common problem that occurs in children, which can be treated to create better vision for children so that it will not affect their studies.
Keratoconus causes thinning of the cornea, which then bulges out, creating distorted vision. A number of treatments help to counteract the effects of this problem. Special contact lenses can help restore lost vision from keratoconus.
Dryness of the eyes can be caused by many factors: aging, 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.”
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 for 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.
Digital Eye Strain
Nowadays, we’re always on some digital device for hours on end. From a computer at work to a smartphone after work to “catch up” on personal emails or check out a video.
For those working remotely, our screen size can be reduced to laptops with smaller screens. No surprise, more people experience some form of digital eye strain.
