Eye Health

Vision Screenings

A vision screening is a simple eye test that is used to identify visual impairments and if a comprehensive eye exam is needed to treat eye disorders.


Contact Lenses and Eyeglasses

Glasses and contact lenses are the most common forms of treatment for refractive errors, such as myopia, hyperopia, presbyopia, and astigmatism.


Refractive Error and Surgery

Refractive errors are disorders that occur when the shape of the eye prevents light from focusing properly on the retina, resulting in poor vision.


Eye Infections

Eye infections occur when microscopic organisms, such as bacteria, fungi, and viruses enter the eye or eyelid, resulting in mild to severe irritation.


Eye Allergies

An eye allergy or allergic conjunctivitis is an adverse reaction that occurs when the eye is bothered by an irritating substance or allergen.


Dry Eye and Blepharitis

Dry eye syndrome is often mistaken for blepharitis, as their symptoms are very similar and include redness, itchiness, inflammation, and discharge.



A chalazion is a small lump or swelling that develops within the eyelid as the result of a blocked oil gland and is often confused with a stye.



Anisocoria is an ocular condition that causes the pupils of the eyes to differ in size, resulting in blurred vision, headaches, nausea, and ptosis.



Nystagmus is repetitive, involuntary movement of the eyes from side to side, up and down, or circular motions, resulting in reduced vision.


Systemic Disease

A systemic disease affects many organs or the entire body, resulting in various symptoms that often negatively impact the eyes and overall vision.


Thyroid Eye Disease

Thyroid eye disease or Grave's eye disease is a condition that attacks the thyroid gland, resulting in bulging of the eyes, pain, and blurred vision.
