At Wichita Optometry, we believe that your eye health plays a vital role in your quality of life. As such, we treat a wide range of vision issues and eye diseases, including those listed below.
Whether you are nearsighted or farsighted, or you live with astigmatism, you are not seeing to your fullest potential. This can affect everything from how well someone does in school to simply enjoying the beauty around them. Our team diagnoses such refractive errors and helps you choose the best eyewear for your needs and lifestyle.
Glaucoma is a name used for several eye diseases that impact the optic nerve and potentially cause complete vision loss. Our optometrists specialize in preventative measures and treatment methods that can help slow the progression of these diseases.
Macular degeneration is one of the top causes of low vision or vision loss in older adults. Our team can detect the signs of this condition and recommend the best course of action, which might include anything from low vision devices to laser surgery.
Everyone experiences red eyes from time to time – usually due to being tired or having eye allergies. However, some issues, such as infections and injuries, can cause chronic red eyes. Regardless of the cause or severity, our team can diagnose the underlying issue and determine the best course of treatment.
Much like red eyes, most people experience dry eyes at some point. This can often be due to environmental factors, seasonal eye allergies, and even not blinking enough when staring at a digital screen. However, for some people, it’s a chronic condition that occurs because the individual’s eyes either don’t produce enough tears or don’t produce quality tears. When this is the case, we have several treatment methods to help.
Cataracts are one of several eye issues that can cause blurry vision, low vision, and even a complete loss of vision. Through regular comprehensive eye exams, we can continually screen for cataracts, recommend preventative measures and surgery when necessary, and provide post-op care.
Computer Vision Syndrome
Computer vision syndrome is a set of symptoms that people typically experience due to being in front of a computer or other device for hours at a time. This includes complaints ranging from neck and shoulder pain to blurry vision, headaches, and eyestrain. Sadly, this syndrome affects millions, as digital devices are so commonplace.
The good news is that there are many steps that can help you avoid these symptoms – and our team can help you put them in place. In addition to recommending things you can do each day, we’ll ensure that no vision issues – such as a refractive error – are contributing, as well.
