If you have an eye condition or disease, it's important to get help with treating it so that you can see your best.

If you have astigmatism, your vision can be a little more complicated than with other refractive errors. We can find astigmatism during your eye exam and then monitor its progress each year. You may need corrective lenses for this condition and we can help with the specialty lenses if needed.
Nearsightedness and Farsightedness
These eye conditions are quite common, especially myopia or nearsightedness. We can get you a new prescription so you can have accurate vision correction. It's important to have your eyesight monitored year after year to check for changes in your vision. Whether you want eyeglasses, contact lenses, or another arrangement, we can help you to see as clearly as you can.
Dry Eye and Eye Allergies
Some of the most irritating eye conditions are dry eye and eye allergies. With dry eye, the cause may be sitting at the computer for long hours, being in the wind without eye protection, certain medications, and other causes. There are treatments available from an optometrist when you have dry eye that can help you feel a lot better. If you have eye allergies, you may have a great deal of eye irritation and inflammation. There are ways to help you feel better as well as see better when you are suffering from allergies.
This is a common eye condition that often starts in a patient's early 40s. It can make it harder to see objects that are up close. It can make reading and computer use more difficult. It can cause eye fatigue, strain, and chronic headaches as you strain to see well. There are a number of ways to treat presbyopia, and you can choose the best method for you and your lifestyle.
This is often referred to as lazy eye. When one eye stops working as hard as the other, the brain starts to disregard the signals from the lazy eye.
