Whether you’re seeking personalized care for dry eye or myopia, our team is happy to help. Before visiting us, take a look at some conditions we treat below:

Dry Eye

Dry eye is a condition that occurs when the eyes don’t produce enough tears or the tears evaporate too quickly. Symptoms can include irritation, burning, stinging, scratchiness, and light sensitivity. Treatment depends on the cause of the condition and may include artificial tears, prescription medications, and lifestyle modifications.


Cataracts are a clouding of the lens of the eye, which lead to blurry vision, glare, and difficulty seeing at night. While cataracts are a natural part of aging, they can also be caused by injury, certain medications, or medical conditions. The most effective treatment for cataracts is surgery, which removes the clouded lens and replaces it with an artificial lens.


Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve. Not only that, but this damage can also lead to permanent vision loss if left untreated. There is no cure for glaucoma, but early detection and treatment can help prevent vision loss. Regular eye exams are crucial for early detection.

Refractive Errors

Refractive errors are common vision problems that affect how the eye focuses light. These refractive errors include the following:

•           Myopia (nearsightedness): Individuals with myopia have difficulty seeing objects that are far away clearly.

•           Hyperopia (farsightedness): Those who have hyperopia have difficulty seeing near objects clearly.

•           Astigmatism: Those with astigmatism experience blurry vision at all distances due to an irregularly shaped cornea.

Refractive errors can be corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses, or refractive surgery such as LASIK, or PRK.

Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a leading cause of vision loss in older adults. It damages the macula, which is the central part of the retina responsible for sharp central vision. Early detection and treatment can help slow the progression of AMD.

Computer Vision Syndrome

Computer vision syndrome is characterized by eye discomfort and vision problems associated with prolonged computer use. Symptoms can include eye strain, headaches, blurry vision, and neck and shoulder pain. Taking regular breaks from screens, adjusting screen brightness, and maintaining proper posture can all help alleviate symptoms.
