Dry Eye Syndrome
Dry eye syndrome, or dry eye disease, is a common condition characterized by insufficient moisture and lubrication on the eye's surface. It occurs when the eyes do not produce enough tears or evaporate too quickly, resulting in dryness, discomfort, and potential damage to the ocular surface. Several possible causes include medication, age, prior laser eye surgery, and long-term use of contact lenses. In addition, red eyes and sensitivity to light are a few symptoms of dry eye syndrome.
We can diagnose this condition during an eye exam. We can treat you with artificial tears, punctual plugs, eye inserts, and medication to stimulate natural tear production. Our optometrist will work with you to figure out the best treatment plan.
Diabetic retinopathy is an eye disease that damages your retina's blood vessels due to diabetes. High blood sugar can lead to blocked blood vessels in the retina and restrict blood flow.
Symptoms of diabetic retinopathy include loss of vision, blurry vision, poor night vision, floaters, and dark areas of your vision. Blindness, glaucoma, and retinal detachment are some complications that can happen without prompt treatment of this condition. Quitting smoking, managing diabetes well, and regularly monitoring blood sugar levels are a few ways to prevent diabetic retinopathy.
We diagnose this condition by using a dilated eye exam. If you have diabetic retinopathy, we can treat you via surgery, injections, or laser treatment. You will receive high-quality care for this condition at either of our offices.
