Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)
This is also known as having a 'lazy eye'. This is a vision development disorder in which one eye fails to achieve normal visual acuity even with the help of prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses. This often begins during infancy and early childhood years. In most cases, only one eye will be affected. A great way to avoid this is to schedule your baby for our free InfantSee evaluation before they are 1 year old.
This condition is also known as eyelid inflammation. This affects the eyelashes and/or tear production. While this is a common condition, treatment can help but this condition cannot be cured.
A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that will affect vision. Usually, cataracts are related to aging and are most commonly found in older people. By age 80, more than half of all Americans either have a cataract or have had cataract surgery. This type of condition can happen in one or both eyes.
Computer Vision Syndrome
Computer Vision Syndrome is usually characterized by neck pain, blurry vision, stiff shoulders, headache and watery eyes when working in front of a computer screen. The symptoms are typically due to posture, dry eyes, eye muscle coordination and poorly corrected vision.
Dry Eye Syndrome
Dry Eye Syndrome (often referred to as DES) is a condition in which the eyes have irritation, redness, discharge or become easily fatigued. Dry eye occurs when either the eye does not produce enough tears or when the tears evaporate too quickly. There are lots of treatment options available for dry eye including prescription drops, procedures such as lipiflow and therapeutic laser, and many lifestyle changes and nutraceuticals to help stop this progressive disease.
Patients who have strabismus have one eye that looks directly at the object that you are viewing while the other eye is misaligned inward, outward, upward, or downward. This can be a constant condition or intermittent.
