Conditions Treated

We treat a range of common mild and severe eye diseases. Whether you have been diagnosed with a condition or are experiencing symptoms, our team is happy to help. We provide treatment for eye diseases, such as the following:


While damage from glaucoma cannot be reversed, however, early detection can slow down the progression. The sooner the disease is detected, the quicker you can receive treatment and enjoy clearer vision. Effective treatments for glaucoma include the following:

    • Prescription eye drops
    • Oral medication
    • Surgery
    • Laser therapy

Dry Eye

Dry eye is characterized by stinging, burning, mucus, light sensitivity, and red eyes.  This condition develops when the tear ducts cannot provide adequate lubrication to the eyes. Our eye doctors can discuss your symptoms with you and create a treatment plan that will help reduce the discomfort. 


Keratoconus is a condition that affects the cornea, which is the dome-shaped structure at the front of your eye. Keratoconus causes this structure to become thinner over time, resulting in distorted or blurred vision. It is treated with corneal cross-linking and surgery.

Eye Allergies

Eye allergies are common and can be merely irritating or nearly debilitating. These are typically treated with medications or nasal sprays, however, our optometrists can assess your condition and recommend a suitable method that will ease your symptoms.
