Optomap Retinal Imaging
We are proud to announce the addition of Optomap retinal screening technology at our office. We are concerned about retinal problems including macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal holes or detachments and systemic diseases such as diabetes, stroke and high blood pressure. These conditions can lead to serious health problems including partial loss of vision or blindness, and often develop without warning and may progress with no symptoms. Optomap is fast, easy and comfortable. Optomap does not require dilating drops (in most cases), which result in blurred vision and sensitivity to light.
Laser Vision Correction
Most people with
vision correction issues want to know more about LASIK laser eye
surgery and whether it is right for them. Here is a brief
description of the procedure;
A flap is
surgically cut in the cornea and gently folded back. An Excimer
Laser is used to reshape the cornea into a flatter or steeper shape
(this is much like a contact lens corrects vision by forming a new
shape on the cornea). The flap is then put back in place, acting
like a natural bandage. The healing process is quick and the
discomfort level is quite low.
often say that they did not feel anything, and could see well the
very first day. Most people have improved vision in 24-48 hours.
But it must be noted that each person will heal at a different
rate. Vision, although greatly improved immediately after surgery,
often continues to improve for some weeks, even months.
LASIK is not for
everyone. People's eyes are different so even though you may have
had a friend who has had LASIK, it may not be the best course of
treatment for you. If you are interested in laser vision
correction, we will be happy to guide you in picking the right
surgeon, procedure and laser appropriate for you.
After the procedure, we take great care to monitor your eyes and work in conjunction with your surgeon for the best possible results.
co-manages many of the surgical services such as Cataract surgery,
Laser surgery, Refractive surgery and Strabismus surgery. We work

Additionally, we have working relationships established with other specialized eye care doctors to co-manage such things are retinal detachments, retinal tears and hemorrhages.
Eye Infections, Eye Injuries, Dry Eyes
provides emergency services for eye infections and eye
injuries. Please call our office at 325-677-6225 during
office hours, after hours or on weekends. Our staff will work with
you to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. After assessing
the extent of the injury or infection a treatment plan will be
formulated and explained to you. Treatment may include
medications and supportive care. Follow-up visits to monitor your
recovery will be scheduled as needed.
Dry Eyes: Symptoms include scratchy eyes, burning, mild redness and gritty feeling eyes. Oral medications, reading, contact lenses, computer tasks and dry environments may aggravate marginally dry eyes. Dry eyes can be diagnosed by using dyes to observe tear patterns, evaluation of the amount of tears on the front of the eye and from review of your symptoms. Treatment may include artificial tears; eye drops for treating allergies; and/or punctal plugs inserted in the tear drainage canals.
Eye Diseases; Cataracts, Glaucoma, Diabetes
Cataracts: The natural lens in
the eye gradually becomes less clear as we get older. When
opacities develop in the lens and the lens gets too hazy, vision
will be impaired. Our office can diagnose and manage cataract care.
When the cataract affects the vision to the extent that you cannot
read or see distant objects comfortably, we will recommend cataract
surgery. Our office co-manages with cataract specialists that are
proven experts in cataract surgery. Cataract surgery can provide
you with a bright new world of vision.
Glaucoma: Glaucoma gradually
destroys the optic nerve tissue in the back of the eye. The
greatest danger of glaucoma stems from the fact that the disease is
painless and without obvious symptoms until significant damage has
occurred. The most common cause is from pressure being too high
inside the eye, but vascular disease and other diseases can also
cause glaucoma. We monitor for glaucoma during routine eye exam
procedures. Tests include checking the pressure of the eye,
screening for peripheral vision defects and analyzing the
appearance of the optic nerve. If you are diagnosed with glaucoma,
you are typically prescribed medications that lower the eye
pressure. Most forms of glaucoma are successfully treated with eye
drops. Laser treatments and eye surgery are secondary treatments
that offer alternative ways to treat more advanced glaucoma.
Diabetes: Diabetic patients should have a dilated retinal examination each year. Diabetes can often stimulate the growth of new blood vessels in the back of the eye, which may ultimately leak and damage the retina. Laser treatments have proven to slow the progression of retinal eye disease for many patients. If this condition is discovered early, laser treatment can destroy these vessels. If we discover advancing diabetic eye disease that needs further evaluation or treatment, we will refer you for consultation and further testing to a board certified retinal specialist.
