Here are some common vision and eye problems.
Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)
This is not really a lazy “eye”. It’s a poor connection with the eye and the brain. We love to treat this problem, because the success rate is so high!
There are only 2 major reasons you have Amblyopia.
crossed or floating eye
unequal prescription from one side to the other
ONLY an eye doctor can diagnose and treat this. A pediatrician or family physician can not find this with a routine well child check in their office!
An inflammation of the eyelid and eyelashes. It is common and treatable. Left alone, it can lead to more serious problems, including dry eye.
A clouding INSIDE the eye, that usually occurs with age. Always treatable with surgery. We use the best surgeons to remove cataracts.
Computer Vision Syndrome
Computer Vision Syndrome is characterized by neck pain, blurry vision, stiff shoulders, headache and watery eyes when working in front of a computer screen. These come from poor posture, dry eyes, eye teaming problems and poorly corrected vision.
Since computer monitors are typically 20 to 26 inches from your eyes, your regular glasses may not be the best for computer work. This distance is closer than what you use to drive a car but farther away than what you use to read. Special glasses can be used to help for the screen and the work area like the top of your desk.
Dry Eye Syndrome
This is a serious and growing problem. We are SPECIALISTS in treating dry eye. We offer at least a DOZEN different treatments for this disorder, and we manage it successfully in the vast majority of our patients.
