At IECC, we pride ourselves on our ability to diagnose and treat a wide variety of optical medical conditions. From Cataracts to Macular Degeneration, our Optomitrists have you covered.
Glaucoma is a condition that changes the density of the optic nerve fibers. It can be detected through dilation drops, visual field testing, and OCT.
+ Diabetes and Hypertension
Diabetes and high blood pressure can result in changes to the back of the eye, causing a change in patient's prescription. Our doctors will examine by dilation then forward the exam results to your primary care/co-managing doctor.
Cataracts are the clouding of the crystalline lens inside the eye and are a normal maturation of the internal lens. Symptoms are blurred or dimmed vision, halos and glare that become worse at night, or needing additional bright light when reading.
+ Macular Degeneration
Macular Degeneration happens when central vision is distorted and blurred. Our doctors will use diagnostic dilation drops as well as OCT for proper evaluation. Patients can help prevent Macular Degeneration by using UV Sunglasses, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and not smoking.
+ Retinal Detachment
Retinal Detachment is a break or tear of the retina, the structure that lines the back of the eye. If you experience symptoms such as flashes of light, new floaters, sudden loss of or changes in vision, book an appointment right away, as these symptoms may indicate Retinal Detachment.
+ Pink Eye, Eye Infections & Eye Allergies
Pink Eye and other eye infections cause inflammation of the clear tissue that covers the eye. Common symptoms include discharge that persists throughout the day, discomfort, irritation, burning, itching, redness, and tearing.
+ Dry Eye
Dry Eye is the disruption of a single or multiple components of the front tear layer of the eye. Tearing, burning, redness, and fluctuating vision are common symptoms of Dry Eye. Dryness could be secondary to underlying systemic medical conditions such as Sjogrens Syndrome, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Keratoconus is the progressive thinning and steeping of the cornea. Symptoms include blurry or distorted vision, double vision, glare, halos, persistent eye rubbing and itching. Our doctors will determine if you are a good candidate for specialty vision correction or surgical referral.
+ Post LASIK / POST-PRK / Post-RK
LASIK/ PRK (and in years past, Radial Keratectomy (RK)) are surgical procedures performed to correct your prescription and eliminate the need for full time glasses or contact lens wear. Even after surgery, the eyes need to be examined to ensure maintenance of ocular health and stability. We offer this for patients, which includes a letter sent to your surgeon with examination findings of each annual visit.
