Our Optometrist in Ardmore, OK Can Diagnose & Treat a Wide Variety of Eye Conditions
Eye Conditions We Treat at Ardmore Premier Eye Care
Your eyes are intricate, important, and delicate organs which are subject to a wide variety of conditions, many of which we treat here at Ardmore Premier Eye Care in Oklahoma:
- Refractive Errors (Astigmatism, Myopia, Hyperopia, Presbyopia) - These conditions affect the way light enters the eye and prevent images from clearly focusing on the retinas, causing blurry vision when looking at near and/or distant objects.
- Strabismus - Also known as crossed eyes, strabismus occurs when the eyes are misaligned and orient in different directions.
- Amblyopia - Known as lazy eye, amblyopia causes impaired eyesight due to one eye having less intact nervous system connection to the brain compared to the other eye.
- Dry Eyes - Tears that lack in quality or quantity, as well as allergies, seasonal changes, and auto-immune diseases, can lead to dry eyes, which presents with symptoms including dry, red, itchy, gritty, and watery eyes.
- Glaucoma - This condition causes progressive vision loss secondary to optic nerve damage; it's associated with an increased pressure within the eye.
- Cataracts - These develop when the lenses inside your eyes become cloudy instead of clear, which leads to blurry vision.
- Diabetic Retinopathy - Diabetes is hallmarked by high levels of sugar in the blood; since sugar is inflammatory, this condition can damage the tiny blood vessels supplying the retinal tissue and cause diabetic retinopathy, a leading cause of blindness.
- Age-Related Macular Degeneration - When the center of your retina (called the macula) begins to degenerate, difficulty seeing in fine detail tasks can begin to develop.
- Eye Infections - Both bacteria and viruses can lead to infections in the eye, many of which are contagious and present with uncomfortable symptoms like redness, swelling, itchiness, and discharge.
- Keratoconus - This vision-impairing condition occurs when the normally half-dome shaped cornea becomes thin and cone-shaped.
Our Ardmore optometrist can thoroughly examine the internal and external aspects of your eyes in order to assess your vision and diagnose any underlying conditions. He can also implement any treatment plans as indicated in order to help you start feeling and seeing better as soon as possible. Treatments may include corrective eyewear prescription and medicated eye drops.
A medical eye doctor (ophthalmologist) may be a necessary health professional to consult in the event that surgery is indicated (such as LASIK eye surgery for astigmatism or laser-assisted surgery for exudative AMD). In these instances, our optometrist can provide essential pre- and post-operative care in order to facilitate optimal healing and patient outcomes.
