Advantage Eyecare Treats Many Eye & Vision Conditions
Your optometrist not only provides corrective lenses that help you see more clearly for everyday tasks. We also treat a number of common eye conditions that occur. Our extensive training allows us to provide prompt, professional care, so you can enjoy good vision at every stage of life. At Advantage Eyecare in North Richland Hills, TX, we offer care for many common vision and eye problems.
Conjunctivitis, often called “pink eye," is commonly a bacterial infection that causes itching, irritation, redness, and oozing of the eyes. We can provide antibiotic medications to eliminate this infection and advice on soothing inflamed eye tissue.
Foreign Body Removal
A cinder or other foreign body in your eye can be irritating and painful. We can carefully remove the object and provide medications, if needed.
Itching, red, watery eyes can be a part of your seasonal allergies. We can provide medications that help to control seasonal eye allergies.
Glaucoma is progressive eye condition that often involves an increase in eye pressure that can gradually damage the optic nerve. During your regular eye exams, we will test for eye pressure and help monitor your eyes for damage from this condition.
Aging can cause deposits and leakage of fluid in the macula. This condition can cause progressive loss of vision unless carefully monitored and treated. We can help detect early signs of macular degeneration, to preserve your vision.
Cataracts generally affect individuals over the age of 60. Cataracts form when the lens of the eye becomes clouded, causing blurred vision, problems with color perception, and "haloes" around lights. We can help monitor cataracts and can recommend surgery when they interfere with everyday life.
Diabetic Eye Care
Diabetes is a condition that involves insufficient production of insulin to remove glucose from the body. High glucose levels in the bloodstream can damage the delicate blood vessels in the eyes and may result in retinal detachment. We will carefully monitor the health of your eyes to detect problems.
