Common Eye Diseases
Many patients initially see an optometrist when either their vision is unclear, or they are feeling some sort of pain. With regular check-ups early diagnosis and prevention is possible.
Our office provides comprehensive eye exams to children, adults, and seniors. (Please visit the “when should you see an optometrist” page for more information about your needs depending on your age).

Glaucoma is due to increased pressure within the eye, and damages the optical nerve. It can worsen over time, but if treated in a timely manner, the process of deterioration can be slowed. Adults and seniors are most at risk for developing this eye condition.

Vision loss may occur abruptly or gradually over time. If you experience sudden vision loss, you should seek emergency eye care from your optometrist.
Eye floaters are typical in many patients, they appear as tiny spots, or cobwebs. In most cases they are not a sign for concern. However, when a large amount of floaters are experienced or in combination with light flashes, it could be a sign of a retinal detachment.
