Dry eye disease is very common and often misdiagnosed, as it shares numerous symptoms with several other eye conditions: itchy and burning eyes, blurry vision, and light sensitivity, to name a few. Our physicians are experts at diagnosing dry eye disease and addressing its underlying causes to ease symptoms and help patients find relief from dry eye.
Laser eye surgeries, like LASIK, offer freedom from glasses and contact lenses by correcting the refractive error causing poor vision, using a laser to gently reshape the cornea to an optimal curve. When you come to us for a laser surgery consultation, we’ll perform a series of tests to determine if you’re a candidate, then refer you to a trusted local surgeon for your procedure.
Neurological disorders are conditions that affect the nervous system and can impact the relationship between the eyes and the brain. They can result from congenital conditions, some of which can worsen over time, as well as from accidents and trauma. Our physicians have a full scope of ways to detect and address neurological conditions that cause vision issues.
Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a refractive error that tends to worsen with age and is becoming increasingly common among children. At OPMT, we offer several research-based methods to help control the progression of nearsightedness in children, leading to lower prescriptions as adults and reducing their risk for conditions associated with severe myopia in the future.
Vision issues can stem from a variety of sources, including neurological disorders, congenital conditions, and accidents. Luckily, vision therapy can help. Like physical therapy for the eyes, vision therapy consists of visits with our experienced physicians as well as at-home exercises designed to improve communication between the eyes and the brain.
Low vision refers to vision issues that cannot be improved using corrective eyewear like glasses or contacts, and this can have a significant impact on a person’s daily life. Low vision can stem from conditions like glaucoma, AMD, cataracts, and more. Our eye doctors offer a variety of treatments for low vision, including vision therapy and eye disease management.
