Adult Eye Examinations
Most of us take our eyesight for granted until something goes wrong. One of the keys to preserving eyesight is routine preventive care. Having routine periodic eye examinations and seeing an ophthalmologist whenever there is a noticeable change in vision are important steps in preserving sight. Most eye problems can be treated successfully if they are diagnosed early.
Pediatric Eye Care
Eye problems in children may be hard to determine because children assume their vision is normal and usually don’t complain when problems are present. The best way to ensure that a child develops normal, healthy vision is through routine, professional eye examinations starting shortly after birth, then again at six months of age, before entering school (age four or five) and yearly throughout the school years. The pediatric eye examination evaluates a range of visual skills including close-up and distance visual acuity, eye tracking and fixation skills, the ability to use the eyes together, depth perception and color vision. Since many vision problems begin at an early age, it is important that they are detected and that children receive proper eye care. Most eye problems can be treated successfully if they are diagnosed early. If left untreated, many problems will worsen and prevent a child from developing good vision.
Conjunctivitis, eye infections, may be caused by a viral or bacterial infection. It can also occur due to an allergic reaction to irritants in the air like pollen and smoke, chlorine in swimming pools, and ingredients in cosmetics or other products that come in contact with the eyes.
People with conjunctivitis may experience the following symptoms:
- A gritty feeling in one or both eyes
- Itching or burning sensation in one or both eyes
- Excessive tearing
- Discharge coming from one or both eyes
- Swollen eyelids
- Pink discoloration to the whites of one or both eyes
- Increased sensitivity to light
The appropriate treatment depends on the cause of the infection.
From the occasional eyelash that wanders uninvited into the eye to the high-speed missile impact from an ejected metal shard, one may find oneself with something in the eye (medically referred to as a foreign body). Depending on what it is and how the injury happened, the foreign body may pierce the eye and cause serious injury or it may simply go away with no long-term problem. Our doctors will examine and remove any foreign material that may be in or embedded in the eye.
