Optometrists are best known for treating vision conditions, and we certainly do help many patients with various vision problems at our practice. We begin each appointment with an eye and vision exam. This will help us determine exactly what sort of vision problems you have. When we have that information, we can come up with a prescription to help you see more clearly. Most of our prescriptions will be available as either contact lenses or eyeglasses. Some prescriptions, however, are only available as glasses. We offer a wide selection of both contact lenses and eyeglasses for your convenience. We even offer many different stylish frames so that your vision correction can help you look your best.
As you may already know, optometrists can also treat various eye conditions. Optometrists generally treat the more common, milder eye conditions, while ophthalmologists treat more serious conditions and perform all eye surgeries. The eye conditions we treat include eye infections, pinkeye, dry eye syndrome, cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic eye disease, and more. If you are suffering from a serious eye condition that requires surgery, we can refer you to an ophthalmologist who can perform your surgery. We can even help you through the preparation and recovery process. We also provide children's eye care services.
There are many diseases that affect a person's eyes. Here is a list of some of the most common ocular disease we treat here at ABC Vision Source:
Glaucoma: Glaucoma refers to any disease that causes damage to the optic nerve.
Cataracts: Cataracts occur when the lenses of a person's eyes begin to cloud.
Pink Eye (conjunctivitis): Conjunctivitis is inflammation of the eye's conjunctiva, and is often caused by infections, allergies, or various irritants.
Diabetic Eye Disease: A person's eyes are among the organs most affected by diabetes. If you suffer from this condition, take the time to visit with an optometrist regularly in order to preserve your sight.
