At Visionary Eye Care, we provide multiple types of high-quality services for the treatment of multiple ocular conditions. Below are some of the most common ocular conditions we evaluate and provide treatment.
Eyeglass Exams and Contact Lens Exams:
Eyeglasses exams are routine eye exams that check the refractive state of the eyes to provide an acurate prescription for eyeglasses. Contact lens exams require additional testings that are typically not performed on a routine eyeglasses exam. Contact lens exams require a fitting of the contact lens according to the parameters and curvature of the (cornea) front surface of the eye. Contact lens exams vary based on the type of fitting, if a more complex fitting is required than the price of the exam will be relatively more complex. We specializes in difficult to fit corneas and nearsightedness (myopia) control.
Pediatric eye Exams:
Kids are our most precious possessions, it is imperative that parents consider not only taking their children to the pediatrician but also to take their children to their eye doctor for annual eye exams. Good vision is key to a child’s physical development, success in school and overall well-being. It is not just to check for eyeglasses, but also to check for many other eye diseases that can be harmful for kids’ health. Eye conditions such as retinoblastoma, amblyopia, congenital cataracts, lazy eye and much more conditions that is dangerous and detrimental to kids. American Optometric Association recommended for children to be evaluated at birth, by 6 months of age, 1 to 2 years and before school age.
Pink eye (conjunctivitis) is an eye disease that is contagious and is very common in the population. It is most common among school children, teachers and daycares due to its close proximity with others. Pink eye is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, which is the clear skin layer that covers the white part of the eye, and it is also the pink tissue of the eyelids. It can be caused by a viral, bacterial, or an allergic condition, so it is important to treat it according to its cause. While conjunctivitis is usually a minor eye infection, sometimes it can develop into a more serious problem. It is best to not “wait it out.”
Diabetic and Medical Eye Exams:
Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness among Americans more than any other ocular diseases. Increasing amounts of blood-glucose due to uncontrolled high blood-glucose levels leads to damage to blood vessels within the body, and within areas of the eye. High blood sugar levels leads to blood vessels leaking in the retina (the back of the eye), which leads to swelling and damage of that layer which leads to blindness. Also, if you have hypertension or high cholesterol, this can also be found in the eye if these conditions are uncontrolled. Early detection is the key to prevent blindness!
Glaucoma is an eye condition which causes damage to the optic nerve that sends visual information from the eye to the brain to be processed as an image. Glaucoma has usually no symptoms, but when it becomes severe in its damage to the optic nerve than it will show signs of peripheral vision loss and eventual blindness if left untreated. It is usually associated with high intraocular eye pressure, however sometimes it can be related to normal eye pressure. Annual eye exams can evaluate for glaucoma and provide early diagnosis for the treatment of glaucoma.
Cataracts are one of the main causes of blindness in the world. It occurs in the eye’s natural intraocular lens behind the pupil becomes cloudy. Light entering the eye is reduced when passing through a very cloudy lens, resulting in reduced contrast sensitivity and clarity in vision. We will provide comprehensive eye care for timely diagnosis, treatment, and, when necessary, referral for consultation with or treatment by another health care provider.
Eye Infections & Injuries:
Painful eyes, swollen eyes, and red eyes could results from bacterial, fungal, viral infections and many more infectious organisms. Many of these conditions requires immediate attention to prevent permanent eye damage resulting in vision loss.
LASIK & PRK management:
LASIK is the most common type of refractive surgery procedure in the United States to correct vision. However, there are other types refractive surgeries available such as: PRK, Phakic IOLs, Epi-LASIK, LASEK (no-flap laser procedure). At Visionary Eye Care we co-manage with ophthalmologists in doing the pre-operative and post-operative work to evaluate and monitor refractive surgery patients before and after the laser surgery procedure to provide the best care possible.
