Our Comprehensive Eyecare Services Treat a Wide Variety of Eye Conditions
You don’t have to live with adult strabismus forever.
Affecting more than 3 million people in the U.S. each year, adult strabismus occurs when the eyes don’t look exactly in the same direction at the same times. Adult strabismus (also called misaligned eyes or crossed eyes) can develop in both adulthood and childhood. Strabismus that develops in adulthood can be caused by certain conditions like thyroid eye disease, stroke or tumors. Our team of skilled eye specialists can help you understand your condition and how it may have originated, and work with you to develop a treatment plan catered to your needs.
Stop glaucoma in its tracks and save your vision.
Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the world, affecting the vision of close to 3 million Americans. Glaucoma is a general term describing a group of various eye conditions that take your eyesight due to damage to the optic nerve.
The optic nerve serves as the main communicator between the eye and the brain. Certain factors, including increased pressure within the eye, can damage the optic nerve and result in vision impairment and even blindness. Because glaucoma often doesn’t exhibit any symptoms other than slow vision loss, it’s crucial to see a specialist who can detect the disease and save your vision.
Our proactive approach gets your relief from uveitis and ocular inflammatory disease.
Uveitis is an inflammation of the uvea — the middle layer of the eye that’s comprised of the iris, choroid and ciliary body. Warning signs like eye redness, pain and blurred vision affecting one or both of the eyes often come on suddenly and worsen quickly. Uveitis can be caused by a number of factors, including eye injury, infection, and inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The ophthalmologists at Medical Center Ophthalmology Associates are specially trained to diagnose and effectively treat ocular inflammatory diseases and they can help you, too.
