Our West Sahara Services
Our eye doctors are trained to treat many types of eye conditions and vision problems. Everything from cataracts, glaucoma, and blepharitis to vision problems like nearsightedness or farsightedness can be treated with confidence at our clinic.
We offer both routine and advanced vision and eye care services, including these:
- Comprehensive eye exams. Routine eye exams are important to make sure that your eyes remain healthy. Regular screening can help detect early signs of diseases like glaucoma or cataracts. As you age, the risk of developing eye diseases increases. If issues remain untreated, they can cause further problems to your health.
- Glaucoma treatment. To prevent any permanent vision loss, glaucoma should be treated as soon as possible. While there’s no cure for glaucoma, our eye specialists focus on relieving the symptoms and working to prevent any further damage to your eyes.
- Diabetic eye exams. People who have diabetes are at a higher risk of developing eye conditions. If untreated, this can lead to diabetic retinopathy, blindness, glaucoma, and cataracts. Many times, these conditions have no noticeable warning signs, or they develop without pain or loss of vision. As a result, the damage is often done before you notice anything is wrong. It’s important for those with diabetes to have eye exams at least once a year to help with early detection and damage prevention.
- Dry eye treatment. Dry eye is characterized by dry, itchy, red and painful eyes. This can be a result of the tear ducts not producing an adequate number of tears to lubricate the eyes, or the tears being chemically imbalanced altogether. Many times, small lifestyle changes may correct the problem, but in more serious cases, surgical intervention may be necessary.
- Blepharitis diagnosis and treatment. Blepharitis is the persistent and recurring infection or inflammation of the eyelids and eyelash follicles. Following a comprehensive exam, our doctors can help diagnose and treat blepharitis. If a bacterial infection is present, antibiotics may be prescribed as part of the treatment. Proper eye hygiene can help control blepharitis.
- Eye trauma. Eye trauma may be from injury, contamination, or other causes, and can often lead to swelling, bleeding, pain, redness, and other symptoms. Additionally, eye injuries can lead to retinal complications such as detachment and tears. Patients who have sustained a traumatic eye injury should seek help immediately to reduce the risk of permanent damage and help preserve vision.
- Lasik surgery. Lasik eye surgery is often used to correct vision problems such as astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness. Lasik is a popular alternative to wearing contacts or glasses and is generally completed in a short outpatient session. Both eyes can usually be treated one right after the other.
- Cataract surgery. Cataracts occur when the eye’s lens becomes cloudy, impairing vision. Cataract surgery may be used to help improve your vision by replacing the cloudy lens with an intraocular lens.
- Cosmetic eyelid surgery. Cosmetic eyelid surgery can be used to help improve vision, reduce puffiness or bags under the eyes, and create a more alert and youthful appearance. You may be a candidate for cosmetic eyelid surgery if you have bags under your eyes, excess fatty deposits, sagging skin, or droopiness around your eyes.
- Alternatives to Lasik surgery. Our clinic offers alternatives to Lasik surgery for those who may not be good candidates for Lasik. One option is implantable contacts that provide you better vision in as little as 30 minutes. Our clinic also offers photorefractive keratectomy, where the cornea is reshaped with a laser to help improve vision and reduce the need for contacts or glasses.
