Consult an Optometrist for Common Eye Ailments
CataractsThese blurry or cloudy patches develop over time to cause reduced vision. Most common in older adults, cataracts can be treated surgically when necessary to provide relief.
GlaucomaWhen pressure builds up inside the eye and is unable to escape, the normal fluids inside your eye become blocked. While it is simple for a professional to detect, patients do not usually notice any symptoms. Glaucoma can lead to permanent blindness or vision loss, so it’s important to get regular exams to prevent any potential risks.
Age-elated macular degenerationCaused by damage to the macula, this condition leads to gradual vision loss or blurriness. While it does not generally cause complete blindness, the location of the vision loss is in the central part of the eye and therefore leads to challenges for everyday activities.
Diabetic eye diseasePeople who suffer from diabetes are at risk for developing a number of eye conditions commonly referred to as Diabetic Eye Disease. These conditions can cause varying degrees including total

MyopiaMost people have heard of the term “nearsightedness”. This means that a patient can see clearly close up, as in reading a book, but cannot see objects in the distance without glasses
HyperopiaThis is the opposite of Myopia. It means “farsightedness”, or the inability to see objects that are close up without the help of glasses.
AstigmatismWhen there is a curvature of the eye, patients are unable to focus on light which leads to blurred vision.
PresbyopiaWhen we lose our ability to focus on objects at near. The lens in the eye grows throughout our life and becomes too large for the eye muscles to focus.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best way to clean my eyeglasses?
My job requires me to spend many hours a day at a computer terminal. By the end of the day my eyes are very tired and strained. What causes this and is there anything I can do about it?
Eye fatigue is caused by glare and blue light from your computer screen and the more time you spend at the computer the more this affects your eyes. An anti-reflective coating can virtually eliminate glare by reducing reflections on the surface of your lenses. This improves your vision and results in less eyestrain.
This may also be caused by age-related changes in the eye which make it harder to focus on close objects. Are you in the age-range for developing presbyopia? 45-49. While it doesn’t lead to blindness, presbyopia can make seeing objects close up – like a newspaper, menu, or computer screen – challenging. If you spend hours a day working on a computer and experience eye strain, consider our coated prescription glasses that protect you from blue light.
