In addition to the above specialties we also treat common conditions like:
Diabetic Retinopathy – The most common diabetic eye complication that is caused by weakening of the blood vessels that supply nourishment to the retina, the light-sensitive lining in the back of the eye where vision is focused, causing a loss of vision.
Blepharitis - The chronic inflammation of the eyelids and eyelash follicles caused by seborrheic dermatitis, acne, bacterial infection, allergic reaction, or poor eyelid hygiene.
Presbyopia - A natural change in our eyes' ability to focus when the soft crystalline lens of the eye starts to harden starting in about a patient’s 40s or 50s. This loss of flexibility affects the lens' ability to focus light in the eye, causing nearby objects to look blurry and can be corrected with glasses or contact lenses.
Floaters - Small specks or clouds moving in your field of vision often seen when looking at a plain background. Floaters are actually tiny clumps of gel or cells inside the vitreous, the clear jelly-like fluid that fills the inside of your eye. A common cause of floaters is posterior vitreous detachment which can lead to a torn retina or retinal detachment which can lead to blindness if untreated.
Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) - A common condition in older adults and the leading cause of vision loss in people over the age of 50. Macular degeneration affects the macula - the part of the retina responsible for the crisp, detailed central vision needed for reading or driving. As we age, the tissue in the eye responsible for vision slowly begins to deteriorate which can significantly affect a patient's quality of life.
Sutureless Pterygium Removal Surgery - A pterygium is an eye condition that results in the growth of abnormal tissue on the surface of the cornea and typically occur on the inner part of the eye and commonly affect patients that live in sunny climates or work outdoors. The traditional method of surgery is to remove this tissue and suture a membrane to the bed of the defect on the white part of the eye. However, newer techniques using a fibrin adhesive rather than sutures to accomplish the same result with greater comfort for the patient.
