Other Procedures at Eye Health Partners
The experienced doctors at Eye Health Partners are dedicated to providing their patients with a comprehensive range of vision treatments. In addition to LASIK and PRK laser eye surgery, retina services and cataract surgery, they offer a variety of other vision treatments. Our doctors are also experienced in pediatric ophthalmology and can diagnose and treat many major pediatric vision problems, including strabismus and amblyopia. Our skilled eye doctors also specialize in early detection and proactive therapy of such potentially serious eye conditions as glaucoma, keratitis and keratoconus.
Since vision treatments are most effective when started in the beginning stages of a disease, it is vital to diagnose any eye problems as early as possible. Prompt treatment can significantly improve your vision and/or greatly slow the progression of your eye condition. Please visit our contact page to learn how you can schedule an evaluation with one of our highly specialized surgeons.
Glaucoma is a condition where the eye’s intraocular pressure (IOP) becomes elevated, causing damage to the optic nerve, which in turn can lead to a complete vision loss. Due to the fact that glaucoma progresses slowly and does not cause any pain, it is very important to undergo regular eye exams to promptly diagnose elevated IOP. Today’s medical advancements allow our doctors to safely lower your eye’s IOP by performing a variety of treatments, including viscocanalostomy and SLT laser surgery. The SLT laser procedure is a painless, in-office procedure and can be completed within a matter of minutes. Visit our glaucoma page to learn more about this disease and available treatments.
The cornea is the transparent, dome-shaped part of the eye. If the cornea is not shaped correctly, the eye cannot properly focus light rays, which leads to nearsightedness, farsightedness and/or astigmatism. Our eye surgeons can help many people correct these problems by adjusting the shape of their corneas through LASIK or PRK procedures. In addition to contour problems, corneas might also become diseased. Two of the most common cornea conditions are keratitis and keratoconus. The former is an inflammation of the cornea, while the latter is a condition that causes the cornea to weaken and bulge forward. Our doctors can diagnose and treat both of these potentially sight-threatening conditions. Keratitis may be treated by prescribing medications. Exciting treatments like the Intacs procedure can help patients with keratoconus and our surgeons can also discuss the option of cornea transplant surgery. Please visit our cornea page to learn more about these different conditions and the treatment options available.
The first 10 years are crucial in the development of your child’s visual system. Your child should regularly visit your family optometrist to detect vision problems at the earliest stages. Our dedicated doctors can help if your child suffers from frequent pink eye and/or blocked tear ducts, and if he or she has a refractive error, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and/or astigmatism. They are also experienced in diagnosing and treating such sight-threatening conditions as congenital cataracts, glaucoma and pterygium. In addition, our doctors offer comprehensive, effective therapies that can improve and/or reverse strabismus and amblyopia. Please visit our pediatric ophthalmology page for more information.
Strabismus is the misalignment of eye muscles and is also known as “cross eye,” “wall eye” and “wandering eye.” If your child has strabismus, his or her eye muscles do not work together properly to allow the eyes to look in the same direction to focus on a single object. Early diagnosis and treatment are very important because untreated strabismus often leads to amblyopia, a serious condition that can leave the child blind in the affected eye. Depending on the extent of your child’s strabismus, our doctors will prescribe a combination of treatments that might include glasses and/or contact lenses, patching and eye exercises, medication and surgery. Please visit our strabismus page to learn more about this condition.
Our experienced eye surgeons also specialize in a variety of oculoplastics procedures. These are surgical treatments designed to improve both the function and appearance of the eyelids, skin and muscles surrounding the eye and forehead. If your eyelids appear saggy and/or interfere with your vision, our dedicated surgeons can help you by performing blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) or the specialized ptosis treatment (correction of drooping eyelid). They can also rejuvenate the appearance of your face by providing you with browlift and/or injectables such as Botox and Restylane. Please visit our oculoplastics page to learn more about these treatments.
