Common eye conditions that can be treated include:

  • Blepharitis – Inflammation or dandruff-like scales and particles formed along the eyelashes or on or around the eyelid, caused by bacteria or dysfunction of the eyelids’ oil glands

  • Cataracts – A clouding of the lens of the eye, causing blurred vision and/or glare problems
  • Chalazion – A cyst in the eyelid caused by the inflammation of blocked oil glands; appears as a lump on the eyelid with symptoms such as soreness, redness, swelling, sensitivity to light, increased tearing, and heaviness of the eyelid; may require antibiotics, steroid injections, or surgery
  • Diabetic Retinopathy – Damage to the retina, the layer of cells that light strikes to create an image, which develops most often in those with high blood pressure from diabetes
  • Dry Eye – Stinging, burning, dryness, irritation, and/or tearing of the eye due to underproduction of lubricating tears
  • Glaucoma – Damage to the optic nerve, which carries the images we see to the brain, caused by unreleased pressure within the eye
  • Headaches – Eye disease is one of the least common causes of headaches, often accompanied by blurred vision, halos around lights, and/or extreme sensitivity to light
  • Macular Degeneration – Breakdown of the macula, a small area of the retina that allows you to see fine details, causing blurriness, dark areas, or distortion in central vision, but leaving peripheral vision intact
  • Ocular Rosacea – Redness, irritation, or burning of the eyes and eyelids, treated with antibiotics and/or artificial tears
  • Retinal vein occlusion – Blockage of retinal veins resulting in complications such as swelling, eye pain, spots or clouds in the field of vision, and vision loss, most often from high blood pressure
  • Strabismus – A condition where eyes are misaligned and point in different directions, most common in children, causing reduced vision which may become permanent if untreated
