The experts at Eye Associates take your health seriously. Because of that, we preform retinal photography at each annual visit, and unlike some other eye care providers we do not charge an additional fee.

Dry Eye Treatment

Dry eyes have a variety of symptoms not limited to itching, burning or a scratchy sensation. This can often make it difficult to wear contact lenses or may prove unbearable in certain environmental conditions. The specialists at Eye Associates can offer solutions that greatly improve contact lens comfort for patients who experience dry eyes. We also offer dry eye management for those not wearing contacts.

While we cannot change the tear production given to you by Mother Nature, we can improve the amount of tears on the surface of the eyes with the aid of artificial tears, lacrimal duct occlusion or Restasis. We encourage you to make an appointment with one of our doctors to help you determine which solution is best for you.

Glaucoma

One of the leading causes of blindness in the world today is glaucoma. Our doctors are board certified in the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma. Treatment options vary from simple prescription eye drops to more advanced surgical laser procedures. If you are diagnosed with glaucoma, our doctors will recommend the option which is right for you.

Sudden or gradual loss of central vision in the adult population is commonly diagnosed as macular degeneration. With many forms, this disease is not easily diagnosed. We will use a combination of digital photography and clinical data to make the proper diagnosis. Once a diagnosis is made, we will work with you to determine the best treatment options and, if needed, specialist referral.
During our comprehensive eye exams, we routinely examine the health and clarity of the crystalline lens. If a diagnosis of cataracts is made, our doctors will take the necessary time to explain any procedures, risks, and benefits prior to referring you to a specialist in the area.
