Eyecare Specialists of Oklahoma Treats Many Eye Conditions
Ophthalmology is a medical specialty that deals with disorders of the eye and how the eye functions. The eyes can develop several problems due to aging, disease, accident or other issues. At Eyecare Specialists of Oklahoma, with offices in Edmond, OK and Midwest City, we use our expertise to treat a wide range of eye problems.
Glaucoma is an eye condition that generally affects older individuals. It is caused by increased pressure within the eyes that can ultimately damage the optic nerve and cause blindness. Glaucoma is an eye disorder that requires ongoing management with medications, therapies and sometimes, surgery, to maintain normal eye pressure and preserve vision.
Cataracts occur when the lens of the eyes become clouded, which begins to impede vision. Surgery is the standard treatment for cataracts, in which the clouded lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens. Recovery is generally rapid, and patients enjoy clearer vision immediately.
Macular Degeneration is a disorder related to aging, in which you may experience problems in your field of vision. Treatments are available to reduce the damage from age-related AMD.
If you have diabetes, regular eye exams become even more important. High blood glucose levels can cause damage to the fragile blood vessels in the eyes. With ongoing monitoring and care, you can avoid diabetic retinopathy that can lead to vision loss.
Sagging eyelids can become a problem over the years as the flesh above the eyes loosens or becomes puffy. This condition can not only give you a tired, older look, but also impede your normal vision. Blepharoplasty is a procedure that lifts the upper eyelids so that you can see clearly and look more rested.
Computer Vision Problems
Long periods of working at the computer can cause severe eyestrain. Your eye doctor can recommend glare-reducing screens and special eyeglasses to help improve eye comfort. If eye dryness is a problem, your doctor can recommend several treatments to help.
