Refractive Errors (Astigmatism, Hyperopia, Myopia, Presbyopia)
Many people are born with or develop refractive errors, which are a group of eye anomalies that affect the way light normally enters (refracts into) the eye. Common types include astigmatism, hyperopia (farsightedness), myopia (nearsightedness), and presbyopia (age-related hyperopia), all of which can result from abnormally shaped eyeballs and/or lenses.
Prescription glasses and pre- and post-operative support for LASIK eye surgery are a few things our Dallas optometry team can do for your refractive error, which is diagnosable on a simple eye exam.
Eye allergies (to dust, pollen, mold, pet dander, smoke, and more) can lead to uncomfortable symptoms like redness, itchiness, blurry vision, watery discharge, and light sensitivity. We'll help you learn what's causing your allergic response, and offer effective treatments and tips to reduce recurring issues.
Cataracts (progressive opacity of the lens) are extremely common. When cataracts get large enough, they can lead to blurry vision. In their most advanced stages, the affected lenses can generally be removed and replaced surgically with artificial lenses.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration
The macula is the central spot on your retina and helps you see in fine detail. Sometimes with age, the growth of abnormal blood vessels or yellow spots called drusen behind the retina can damage the macula and lead to progressive vision loss.
Glaucoma is a leading cause of vision loss and can develop for a long time before symptoms (such as peripheral vision loss) show up. This condition is generally associated with increased inner eye pressure. Common risk factors include hypertension, smoking, family history, obesity, and advancing age. At our Dallas optometry clinic we have a glaucoma specialist who can screen for, diagnose, and manage this condition at an advanced level.
A leading cause of vision loss and blindness for people with diabetes, diabetic retinopathy occurs when the light-sensitive retinal tissue becomes damaged by leaky blood vessels. This condition can be managed through medications and lifestyle adjustments.
