Routine Eye Care and Eye Exams in Monroe
Receiving routine eye care is important for your health. Some ocular impairments do not exhibit any early symptoms, so a regular check with your optometrist will keep your eyes happy and healthy. Early detection through dilation is an important step in treating any changes to the eye that you might not notice on your own. We also welcome children to our practice and suggest that they begin seeing an optometrist regularly once they turn six years of age. Need new glasses or contacts? Our Monroe LA office has you covered! Our Optical Center offers an extensive selection of designer frames, lenses and accessories to give you the look you desire.
Blade-Free LASIK in Monroe
Laser vision correction is a safe, quick, and effective way to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Blade-free LASIK is the most effective technique for reshaping corneas and will allow patients to see clearly shortly after the procedure. Many patients are able to see better than 20/20 after receiving LASIK treatment from our team in Monroe. Not sure if LASIK is for you? Schedule a free LASIK consultation where one of our experienced Ophthalmologists will consult on whether you are a qualified candidate for LASIK in Monroe LA.
Glaucoma Treatment in Monroe
When the optic nerve in an eye becomes damaged (usually due to intraocular pressure), that patient can eventually become blind if no treatment is sought. Often presenting with no symptoms in early stages, glaucoma can be difficult to treat without early detection. There are different types of glaucoma. Contact our office if you’re noticing loss in peripheral vision or rainbows around lights.
Retina Surgery in Monroe
The retina is a thin layer of tissue in the back of your eye that processes light and color. Did you know that it is considered an extension of the brain? Since the retina sends signals to the brain so that we can understand what we’re seeing, it’s crucial to our eyesight. If fully damaged, a retina cannot be repaired without surgery, but it can be treated if caught early. Symptoms of retinal detachment or other issues include an onset of flashes and floaters in your vision. Retina treatment is especially recommended for patients in Monroe that suffer from Diabetes, as Diabetic Retinopathy is one of the most common eye diseases among diabetics. If you think you may have damage to your retina or are experiencing issues with your vision, schedule an appointment with our Monroe eye doctor’s office today.
