Eye Conditions We Treat
We treat a variety of conditions here at Northern Avenue Eye Care. Eye conditions we treat include astigmatism, dry eye syndrome, giant papillary conjunctivitis (GPC), keratoconus, presbyopia, nearsightedness, farsightedness, and more. Below is more information about these conditions.
Astigmatism is a condition where the front of the eye bulges into the shape of an oval. Blurry vision is the result of astigmatism.
Dry Eye Syndrome
Dry eye syndrome are eyes that become extremely dry, which causes them irritation, redness, burning sensations, and blurry vision.
Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis
GPC is a type of conjunctivitis that occurs when the inner eyelid becomes inflamed.
Keratoconus is an eye condition that is not as common as the others. This condition causes a person’s corneas to bulge out and thin into a conical shape.
Presbyopia is a hardening of the eye’s intraocular lens, which makes it more difficult to focus on objects that are close by. People that are 40 and over commonly develop presbyopia.
Nearsightedness, also known as myopia, is where a person cannot see objects very well from a distance.
Farsightedness, also known as hyperopia, is when it is hard to read and focus on items that are nearby.
How We Treat These Conditions
We treat these eye conditions in a variety of ways, based on how severe the condition is. We offer plenty of eye care services to correct and bring relief to these eye conditions. Patients who like to wear contacts with these conditions can do so with special, hard-to-fit contacts. Corrective lenses and contacts are also available for more common eye conditions, such as farsightedness and nearsightedness.
