Conditions Treated by Our Richboro Optometrist
At Eyecare for You, our Richboro optometrist team provides individualized eye care services that can help you see better. In addition to diagnosing and treating underlying eye health conditions, we also provide services that can optimize your eye health and vision for better performance at work and in sports.
An allergy happens when your immune system launches an excessive response to a substance such as pet dander, pollen, smoke, cosmetics, and certain types of contact lens solutions. An allergic response in the eye can lead to vision-disrupting issues like photophobia, watery discharge, itching, and redness. We help identify underlying allergy triggers and prescribe medications and lifestyle recommendations to ease your symptoms and prevent recurrence.
Most of us know what it's like to have dry, irritated, tired eyes after excessive computer use. Let our Richboro optometrist help you avoid computer vision syndrome with techniques like blue lens coating on your prescription eyeglasses.
Athletes rely on eye-hand coordination, depth perception, and other key vision skills to perform at their best. An eye doctor can give you a competitive edge by screening for undetected vision problems like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism and prescribing sports-safe eyewear.
Eyes get dry when something disrupts the healthy film of tears normally covering the eyes' outer surface. We help you figure out what's causing your dry eye and can provide long-lasting relief from itchiness, redness, and other symptoms.
Glaucoma is a leading type of vision loss and is caused by progressive damage to your optic nerve. The main type of glaucoma is often correlated with increased inner eye pressure and has no symptoms early on, so it's sometimes called the "sneak thief of sight." Our evidence-based glaucoma treatment includes medications, prescription eyewear, and low vision strategies.
Macular degeneration happens when the center of the retina gradually becomes damaged, leading to irreversible central vision loss. Nutritional counseling, prescription eyewear, and medications are all potentially beneficial for slowing disease progression and preserving eyesight.
Diabetic retinopathy is a leading cause of vision loss for people with diabetes. Poorly controlled blood sugar levels can damage the small blood vessels behind the retinas, causing them to leak fluids and scar the retinal tissue. Our Richboro optometrist typically recommends medications, corrective eyewear, diabetes management, peri-operative care, and low vision modifications for patients with diabetic retinopathy.
