Vision Conditions Treated at Family Eye Care & Vision Therapy
While proper prescriptions and vision correction are essential to optimal vision, so is addressing any eye health problems or vision conditions that might arise. Drs. Michael and Carol Orwasky can assist you in addressing any vision issues that might arise so you and your family members can continue to enjoy ideal vision and eye health. The following are just a small sampling of the vision conditions they can help diagnose, manage and treat:
Glaucoma is a group of disorders that cause progressive damage to the eye’s optic nerve. Excess pressure buildup in the eye is the main culprit for this issue. The pressure causes a loss of nerve tissue in the eye that leads to vision loss. Glaucoma could culminate in blindness without treatment.
Astigmatism is characterized by an irregularly shaped cornea, or front covering area of the eye, that causes blurry vision. It can also affect the curve of the eye’s lens. This condition can be managed once it is diagnosed, and custom contact lenses are available.
Cataracts are a clouding of the lens within the eye that affects the ability to see. They are primarily found in the aging population but can also be found in infants and in some who have sustained an eye injury. Cataracts can cause cloudy and blurry vision as well as issues with glare.
Amblyopia, or lazy eye, is caused by a lack of development in the muscles and tissues of one eye. In most cases, a corrective prescription cannot offset the reduced vision that’s caused by a lazy eye. Early detection is key to successful treatment.
Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a vision condition that causes objects in the distance to be blurry. However, close up objects can be seen clearly.
Macular degeneration refers to an eye condition that affects the central part of the retina at the back of the eye. Since the retina is the part of the eye that takes in light from the world outside, this results in a loss of vision in the central portion of the eye.
