Astigmatism Diagnosis & Treatment

Astigmatism is one of the most common vision conditions, and most people have some form of astigmatism. It can be caused by an irregular-shaped cornea or an abnormal curvature of the lens.

Minor astigmatism may not affect your vision or require treatment. However, many cases cause blurred or distorted vision, which can result in pain and headaches. Typically, astigmatism is present with nearsightedness and farsightedness.

During your examination, we test for astigmatism using a phoropter and retinoscope, which both measure refraction.

Depending on the severity of the astigmatism, we can provide eyeglasses or contact lenses to help correct your condition. There is also a wide range of other solutions that may also work for you. We would be happy to discuss your options with you at your appointment.

Cataracts cause a clouding of the lens in the eye, making your vision appear to be foggy. Cataracts are the most common cause of vision loss in people over 40 and are the leading cause of blindness in the world.

Your eyes are meant to naturally adjust to normal light changes, adjust focus, and allow you to see both near and far. Your lens is primarily made up of water and proteins. The proper arrangement of these proteins is what contributes to normal vision. Some of these proteins clump together forming a clouding of the lens.

Comprehensive Eye Exams

We recommend scheduling an appointment once a year to ensure your eyes are remaining healthy. If you have been diagnosed with an eye condition, more frequent visits may be required.

Dry Eye Treatment

Silver Vision & Eyecare is proud to offer dry eye treatment for our patients. Ocular Surface Disease, also known as dry eye, can occur from certain medications, naturally by aging, or as a symptom arising from systemic diseases such as Sjogren’s syndrome, Rheumatoid arthritis, or Lupus. If you have a minor case of dry eye, you may be experiencing irritation, excessive tearing, fluctuating vision, and/or a burning sensation in your eyes. Excessive dry eyes, or dry eye symptoms that go untreated, have the potential to damage eye tissue, scar your corneas, and impair your vision.

Glaucoma occurs from damage to the eye’s optic nerve and can often lead to loss of vision and blindness. To detect glaucoma, our highly trained doctors will perform a proper screening to determine severity, examine the damage, and help you manage your glaucoma.

Early detection of glaucoma is crucial in preventing vision loss and blindness; the earlier the better. However, there is no official cure for glaucoma. There are several treatment methods that manage, slow down, or halt the process. Treatment for glaucoma will vary depending on the stage and severity for each individual patient.

LASIK Co-Management

LASIK stands for laser in-situ keratomileusis and is a popular surgery to correct vision problems. LASIK can help people who are nearsighted or farsighted, as well those who have astigmatism.

LASIK works by reshaping the cornea with a laser, which allows light to be correctly focused onto the retina. A laser is used to create a small flap in the cornea, which is peeled back so another laser can reshape the cornea. The flap is then placed back and the surgery is complete.

Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration is a deterioration of the central portion of the retina, the inside layer of the eye that records the images we see and sends them through the optic nerve from the eye to the brain for processing. The macula, or the center of the retina, is responsible for focusing central vision in the eye and controls our ability to see and process information.

Pediatric Eye Exams

Children should have their first eye exam around the age of six months. If the first exam finds that their eyes are healthy, they generally won’t need another appointment until they are between the ages of two and three. Here at Silver Vision & Eyecare we begin seeing children ages 5 and up.

Although many schools offer annual vision screenings, they are not complete eye exams and the results can be inaccurate. For this reason, you should schedule annual examinations to ensure that your child’s eyes are healthy and that your child can see clearly.

Presbyopia Diagnosis and Treatment

Presbyopia, also known as aging eyes, is another disease that will change your vision. Presbyopia is when the lens in your eye loses its flexibility so it has trouble focusing on things that are close to you. However, when you look in the distance, you can see clearly.

Presbyopia happens with age, so we can’t prevent it. We often use corrective lenses like bifocals to help you see clearly.

We may have to perform some testing to properly diagnose your eye conditions. During this time, the doctor and staff will go over what you can expect before, during and after the procedure. We want to make sure to give you realistic answers for your unique eyes and vision.
