Eye Diseases & Conditions We Treat in Lumberton & Benson
Do you suffer from vision loss, eye pain, redness, or any other symptom that affects your eye health? At EyeWorks, our optometrists treat a wide variety of eye injuries, conditions, and diseases, and we’re eager to get started on your treatment too. Whether you have a sudden eye injury or a chronic eye condition that’s already progressing, our eye doctors in Lumberton and Benson will customize an eye care and treatment plan that works for you. Here are some of the most common eye diseases and conditions that we treat here at EyeWorks:
Glaucoma is a common but potentially blinding eye condition, characterized by increased pressure in the eyes due to fluid buildup. Regular eye exams from an optometrist are crucial to detect pressure changes early and treat glaucoma before further complications.
Do you have a blurry vision because of an irregularly shaped cornea? Our eye doctors offer prescription eyewear, including specialty contacts, to help correct vision without complications for patients with this common vision condition.
Dry Eye Syndrome
Lack of lubrication will leave your eyes dry, itchy, and red, causing constant discomfort and vision problems. Dry eyes have many causes from dysfunctional tear ducts to overuse of a computer screen, and your treatment will depend on the cause of your dry eyes.
Diabetic retinopathy is a gradual complication of diabetes, and it happens when high blood sugar levels damage the blood vessels in your retina. Whether or not you have noticeable symptoms like blurred vision, our eye doctors will work to stop the progression of diabetic retinopathy before it causes complete vision loss.
This common, age-related condition affects millions of people, and in its later stages can cause complete vision loss too. Our optometrists help patients reduce risks before diagnosis and reduce the progression of the disease after it’s been detected.
The most common cause of vision loss, cataracts cause the lenses of your eyes to grow cloudy and opaque. Cataract removal is now a simple procedure that can restore vision, but our eye doctors also work to prevent cataracts and stop them from getting bigger.
Eye infections after an injury or disease complication can be incredibly painful, and they may also lead to additional vision and health problems. It’s important to see our eye doctors right away if you suspect an ocular infection.
Whether your cornea is scratched, your iris inflamed, or you fell and bruised your eye, make an appointment with an eye doctor to help manage your pain and promote healing after an ocular injury.
