Eye allergies treatment
Many different types of medical treatments for eye allergies are available by prescription. Your ophthalmologist may prescribe eye drops to treat certain eye conditions, infections or diseases.
Before using eye drops, you should inform your ophthalmologist if you are taking any other prescription or nonprescription medications. You should also inform them of any allergies that you have.
Cataract surgery treatment
New advances and techniques have made cataract surgery one of the most successful and life-improving surgical procedures performed. We offer the latest procedures available to help remove cataracts and restore your vision, including the placement of intraocular lenses. Most cataract surgeries are performed on an outpatient basis, and more than 95% of surgeries improve vision.
Use warm compresses for 10-15 minutes on the chalazion, 2-4 times a day to help reduce swelling. If after 3-4 days the swelling hasn’t subsided, contact your ophthalmologist.
You should contact your ophthalmologist immediately if you experience any of the following symptoms:
- Blurred or decreased vision
- Extensive swelling and redness
- Both eyes and eyelids are swollen
Dry Eye Treatment
Depending on the cause and extent of, it may or may not be able to be completely cured. Even when not cured, however, the symptoms can be managed.
One of the treatments for dry eye syndrome is Restasis eye drops. These are a prescription artificial tear formula that contains materials that not only lubricate and comfort the eye but also encourage the eye to produce more tears.
Another possible treatment is the installation of lacrimal plugs, also called punctal plugs. The plugs are inserted into the tear ducts, to stop tears from draining off the surface of the eye too quickly.
In more extreme cases, we may have to close the tear ducts surgically.
If dry eyes are a result of your environment – for example dry or dusty conditions at work – it may be helpful to wear sunglasses or to use a humidifier.
Nutritional insufficiencies can also be to blame for dry eyes, in which case we advise you to take dietary supplements or to drink more water.
LipiFlow is designed to treat Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, an underlying cause of dry eye syndrome. Using thermal pulse technology, LipiFlow warms and massages the eyelids, helping to stimulate proper oil production for a healthier tear film.
While there is no cure for glaucoma, many medications and procedures exist that can help to slow the disease or stop it altogether. However, like so many eye-related disorders, early diagnosis is essential. Because the early stages of glaucoma have no noticeable symptoms, we recommend regular eye exams for everyone, even if you have no eye-related symptoms or problems.
Strabismus/lazy eye treatment
Early treatment is strongly advised for children with strabismus because it is not a condition that children “grow out of”. Some conventional treatments for strabismus include optical devices, vision and muscle therapy, and, as a last resort, surgery.
LASIK eye surgery is a vision correction treatment used to treat visual errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, giving those with poor eyesight the opportunity to achieve clear vision without the aid of glasses or contact lenses.
LASIK is a safe procedure with fast recovery times, and most patients experience significant improvements to their vision the day following surgery. Other common vision correction procedures include SMILE eye surgery and PRK.
