Eye Doctor Talks about Vision Eye Conditions
Some of the most common eye conditions directly affect your vision. You're born with these conditions, but they generally don't appear until some time later in life. When you come to see our eye doctor for an eye exam, he'll be able to determine whether you have one of the many different vision eye conditions possible. The most common of them are nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. All three of these conditions can be successfully treated with either eyeglasses or contact lenses, both of which will correct your vision back to normal levels.
Eye Care for Conditions Due to Outside Factors
Not all eye conditions are congenital. A great many of them happen because of some outside factors. Many of our patients come in complaining of a variety of symptoms, and after a thorough eye exam, our optometrists can diagnose the particular condition that bothering them.
It's summer now, but patients suffer from allergies throughout the year. If you have itchy, watery eyes, and they're combined with sneezing, stuffy nose, and other respiratory symptoms, it's likely that you're suffering from allergies. We can advise the best home treatments for allergy eyes, from behavioral changes to over the counter eye drops for the worst cases.
Eye infections are especially common in children and families that have small children, but they can happen to anyone at any age. The most common serious eye infection we see every year is conjunctivitis or pink eye. It's extremely contagious and will run through an entire classroom in weeks if not kept in check. There are two types of conjunctivitis: bacterial and viral. Our optometrist can examine you or your family member to determine which one you have. He'll prescribe antibiotics if you have the bacterial form of pink eye, but if you have the viral type the best course of action is simply to treat the symptoms and wait until it goes away.
Computer eye syndrome is a growing problem with the entire population. It's caused by an extended viewing of computer screens, smart phones, and other electronic devices. This condition often causes blurry eyes, itching and watery eyes, headaches and even neck and back problems. One significant factor in many cases is having the wrong vision prescription for computer use. Our optometrists will prescribe the correct eyeglasses, plus advise you on lifestyle changes that will help to control computer vision syndrome.
