Let’s take a look at some of the eye conditions treated and identified at Caroline Robison Optometry.
A Quick Look at Eye Conditions Examined and Treated
A regular check-up with an eye doctor and a vision exam is a wise idea, especially for children and the elderly. By closely examining you or your loved one’s eyes, we can detect problems, potentially treating them before they become serious.
Eye infections are serious and common during childhood, including pink eye. An eye infection may require medication, such as antibiotics, or it could damage the eye. Astigmatism and other issues may cause a lazy eye, which can lead to problems, especially for your child. The correct eye exercises and treatment may prevent or address a lazy eye.
Myopia, or nearsightedness, is extremely common, among children and teens. With myopia, you can see things up close but not far away. Increased use of digital screens may be causing more people to develop myopia. On the other hand, some children and adults will suffer from hyperopia. They can see things far away, but not up close. Your child may struggle in school due to hyperopia, such as being unable to read words in books, for example.
If you or your child is struggling with myopia or hyperopia, glasses or contacts may be needed. We offer professional glasses and contact lens fittings for patients both young and old.
Glaucoma, or optic nerve damage, is a serious issue and is most common among the elderly. However, children too can suffer from glaucoma. Our pediatric eye doctor will examine the eyes to check for damage.
As you can see, there are many vision issues and eye conditions that can affect you and your loved ones. Regular eye examinations are an essential tool to help us detect and address various eye conditions.
