When eye conditions strike, it's good to know that you have a skilled Odessa optometry clinic like Grandview Eye Site taking care of you. Take a look at some of the most common eye conditions our team can diagnose and treat.
Refractive errors include nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia. Most of these conditions occur due to irregularities in the shape of the cornea or eyeball; presbyopia is an age-related refractive error that occurs when the lens becomes too stiff to focus on different distances. We can prescribe either glasses or contact lenses to correct your vision. We also provide pre-operative and post-operative LASIK support.
Glaucoma is usually caused by high fluid pressure within the eye that does permanent damage to the optic nerves. The good news is that we can control most glaucoma through medications. If you need more advanced care, we can recommend easy, painless surgery to control your glaucoma.
Macular degeneration destroys the part of the retina that governs your central vision. Depending on what stage of the disease you have (the condition usually starts after middle age), we can treat it with prescribed lifestyle and nutritional changes, by administering injectable medications, or by referring you for laser surgery.
Dry eye makes your eyes itchy, red, and "gritty" feeling, while also causing blurred vision and sensitivity to light. We can determine whether your dry eye is caused by a lack of tears or an imbalance in the tear composition. Remedies range from artificial tears and medicated eye drops to lifestyle changes or a change in your choice of contact lenses.
Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye) and Eye Allergies
Conjunctivitis, or "pink eye," discolors the whites of your eyes while also causing irritation, swelling, and discharge. We may treat your conjunctivitis with antibiotics, antivirals, eye compresses, and other soothing solutions. Eye allergies that cause conjunctivitis may respond to steroids, antihistamines, and protective eyewear.
Keratoconus is an outward bulge of the corneas due to thin, weak corneal tissues. We can correct the resulting vision problems with scleral contact lenses, or we may refer you to a specialist for more advanced care.
Cataracts make your lenses opaque, distorting your vision and eventually causing blindness. We can compensate with corrective lenses until/unless cataracts require surgery, which can co-manage for you.
Amblyopia is an imbalance in eye dominance that affects binocular vision. We can recommend vision therapy techniques to correct this problem.
