State of the art microscopes allow us to examine the front surface of the eye and facial areas around the eye for infection or injury. After assessing the extent of the injury or infection a treatment plan will be formulated and explained to you.Treatment may include medications and supportive care. Follow-up visits to monitor your recovery will be scheduled as needed.
Dry Eyes: Symptoms include scratchy eyes, burning, mild redness and gritty feeling eyes. Oral medications, reading, computer tasks and dry environments may aggravate marginally dry eyes. Dry eyes can be diagnosed by using dyes to observe tear patterns, evaluation of the amount of tears on the front of the eye and from review of your symptoms. Treatment may include artificial tears; eye drops for treating allergies; and/or punctal plugs inserted in the tear drainage canals.
Extraordinary advances in the treatment of myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism have been made possible with the introduction of laser technology. This technology is sophisticated, precise, and accurate, aided by computer-based measurements that customize each procedure.
In the fall of 1995, the excimer laser was approved by the FDA. Guided by a skilled surgeon, the excimer laser precisely produces a gentle beam of “cool” laser light, which does not burn, but vaporizes a microscopic amount of tissue to reshape the cornea. Laser vision correction is a highly effective, safe, and quick outpatient procedure. In the ten years after its introduction, more than 1,500,000 excimer procedures have been performed worldwide.
