Methods to Treat Corneal Disease

The cornea is the clear, dome shaped layer on the outermost surface of your eye. It is responsible for focusing 85% of the light that passes through your eye. If you are suffering from keratoconus, a condition that causes the cornea to become misshapen, our eye doctor can help. At the office of Optical Outlets, we use state-of-the-art technology and advanced methods to treat corneal disease, improving your eye health and vision.

Keratoconus occurs in around 1 in 2000 people, and generally first strikes in the late teens and early twenties. Symptoms may include difficulty seeing at night, eye strain and headaches, excessive rubbing of the eyes, glare and light sensitivity. In patients suffering from keratoconus, the cornea, which is typically curved, begins to thin and adopt a conical shape. To diagnose this condition, our eye doctor will perform a clinical examination to measure the curvature of your cornea and identify physical signs that are consistent with the diagnosis. Detecting this condition early on allows for the most straightforward and effective course of treatment. In its initial stages, keratoconus may be treated with customized soft contact lenses or prescription glasses. To treat keratoconus, your eye doctor may recommend rigid gas permeable contact lenses, which are carefully fitted and prescribed to improve your vision as the condition progresses. Advanced stages of this condition may require surgical intervention to correct the shape of the cornea and improve your vision. As skilled and compassionate providers of care, we’ll guide you on the best treatment options for managing and dealing with this condition and make appropriate referrals as indicated. We provide attentive care and the personalized attention that you deserve to help you protect the health of your eyes and enjoy optimal visual function.

At the office of Optical Outlets, we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our office and the many services that we provide, give us a call today.

Treating Eye Allergies

Do your eyes itch and water every spring when the flowers bloom? Or perhaps your eyes are red and puffy year round, and you aren’t quite sure why. In many cases, allergic conjunctivitis, also known as eye allergies, are to blame. At the office of Optical Outlets we’ll evaluate your symptoms and perform a comprehensive examination to accurately diagnose eye allergies and recommend an effective course of care. Our experienced team of eye care professionals will guide you ways to reduce exposure to allergens, and recommend eye drops or medications to help manage your symptoms, if indicated.

Eye allergies, like all allergic reactions, occurs when the immune system overreacts to the presence of a common environmental substance, thereby releasing histamine and other chemicals into the bloodstream. Season allergic conjunctivitis is the most common type of eye allergy, and is caused by outdoor allergens like pollen, weeds and grass. If you have a seasonal eye allergy, it a good idea whenever possible to avoid situations that trigger your symptoms, like walking by a freshly mowed lawn. Also, it can help to wear glasses or sunglasses that protect your eyes from coming into contact with allergens. If your eye allergies occur year round, you may have perennial allergic conjunctivitis, which is typically caused by household allergens that are present daily, such as pet dander, dust, mold and smoke. Because eye allergies often exhibit symptoms that are similar to other eye conditions, our eye doctor will perform a comprehensive examination to rule out other causes. As part of your exam, we may also examine your eye with a specialized scope that checks for the presence of certain cells indicative that are indicative of an allergic reaction. Treating eye allergies depends on the type of allergy and its severity. In many cases, prescription eye drops and medications can alleviate your symptoms. In some causes immunotherapy shots may be recommended to manage allergic reactions.
