Treating the Six Most Common Eye Diseases

Many patients presents to the office with an underlying issue of blurriness. Often times, this complaint can be linked to the six most common eye diseases: nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, dry eye syndrome, and ocular allergies.

Some background on how the eye functions: The eye is made up of two magnifying lenses, a fixed magnifying lens (the cornea) and a zoom magnifying lens (the intra-ocular lens). These magnifying lenses converge light so an image land precisely onto the retina. Similar to the way that an arrow targets a bulls-eye. If the patient has too much or too less magnification then eyeglasses, contacts or LASIK can be utilitized to correct the vision.

Interestingly, the tear film is actually the eye's first optical surface so patient's who suffer from dry eye syndrome or ocular allergies would benefit from relevant treatment options. For dry eye disease, our practice offers a dry eye kit as well as innovative, in-office procedures to reduce symptoms and signs and improve health of the eyes.
