Eye Disease Management at Oxford Optometry
If you worry about a hidden or obvious eye disease possibly doing permanent damage to your vision, you need to entrust your primary eye care needs to Oxford Optometry. Any optometrist on our Woodstock team can help you with conditions such as:
Dry eye is a chronic condition in which your eyes lack the necessary tear film to protect themselves against irritation, disease, and dehydration. Your optometrist can discover the root cause of your problem and prescribe treatments ranging from lifestyle changes to eye drops.
Computer vision is digital eye strain caused or aggravated by blue light from monitors, unhealthy room lighting, refractive errors and punishing work habits. We can provide the right mix of corrective lenses, ergonomic suggestions and lifestyle advice to help you conquer this condition.
If part of your visual field suddenly "goes dark," you may have suffered a retinal detachment. Retinal tissue that pulls away from the eyeball must be corrected promptly to prevent blindness. We can diagnose this condition and refer you for emergency eye surgery.
Glaucoma is usually caused by high fluid pressure inside the eyes. The pressure damages the optic nerves, causing permanent vision loss. We routinely test for glaucoma, prescribing medications to normalize your eye pressure and prevent further harm.
When proteins in the eye's lens clump together, the resulting visual barrier is called a cataract. Cataracts cause blurry vision, halos around bright lights, loss of contrast and color sensitivity, poor night vision and even blindness. We can monitor your condition, compensate with corrective lenses, and refer you for surgery if necessary.
When part of the retina known as the macula experiences irreversible deterioration, you may lose your central eyesight. We can provide nutritional support, lifestyle advice, and (if necessary) medications to help control macular degeneration.
Lazy eye is a vision processing problem in which the brain "prefers" one eye's input over that of the other, impairing depth perception. We can provide vision therapy and other treatments to relieve this condition.
Uncontrolled diabetes can damage the blood vessels of the eyes, causing a sight-threatening disease called diabetic retinopathy. We can alert you to this condition in time for you to get your diabetes under control.
Keratoconus is a cone-shaped abnormality in corneal curvature due to thin, weak or damaged corneal tissue. We can correct the vision problem caused by keratoconus with specialized contacts such as scleral lenses.
