Glaucoma is a condition, which if left untreated leads to progressive optic nerve damage (optic neuropathy) and eventual blindness. Typically, it is caused by elevated intra-ocular pressure, but there are many factors that increase the risk for development and progression of glaucoma. Some of these risk factors include: age, genetics (family history), thin corneas, previous eye injury, vascular disease (poor circulation), and other systemic conditions such as diabetes and hypertension (high blood pressure).
A new era of vision correction has arrived. The development and refinement of excimer laser technology has enabled procedures to correct nearsightedness, astigmatism, and farsightedness. Laser vision correction can reduce or eliminate your dependence on glasses or contact lenses. The two most well-known types of vision correction surgery include: LASIK (for Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis) and PRK (for Photo-Refractive Keratectomy). As the technology has evolved, the FDA has expanded the scope of eligibility to incorporate an increasing range of optical conditions.

There are multitudes of contact lenses which are available today. As part of our contact lens services, we will help you determine which type of contact lens is best suited for your eyes and your lifestyle. The initial selection of contact lenses will be based on your unique corneal topography (shape), your prescription, and a careful evaluation of your corneal and conjunctival health. Before we finalize your prescription, we will initially dispense a pair of diagnostic contact lenses for you to take home and wear in your own environment.
