We diagnose and treat the following issues with relatively frequency at our clinic:

  • Glaucoma: progressive vision loss due to optic nerve damage, often due to increased inner eye pressure
  • Age-related macular degeneration: loss of fine detail vision due to macula breakdown (the macula is the center of your retina)
  • Dry eye syndrome: eyes that feel dry, itchy, or have clear watery discharge due to a lack of normal tear film (which protects the eyes); often caused by autoimmune disorders, eye allergy, dry air, or wind
  • Pink eye: conjunctivitis (infection of the conjunctiva, which is a membrane covering the outer eye and inner eyelid) is often caused by bacteria or viruses; red or pink eyes that are itchy and watery is the main symptom
  • Blepharitis: eyelid inflammation, generally caused by inflammation of oil glands in the skin near the eyelashes; can present with flaky residue and redness, itchiness, swelling, and discharge
  • Keratoconus: blurry vision caused by abnormal shape of the cornea; this typically develops in late teens to early adulthood
  • Refractive errors: close and/or faraway objects appear blurry due to abnormalities in the way light enters the eye; generally due to a short or long eyeball or an abnormal curve of the corneas or lenses
  • Amblyopia: lazy eye happens when the neural connection between the eye and the brain is underdeveloped; this is a common childhood eye disorder
  • Cataracts: blurry vision caused by clouding of the lens inside your eye (people may see "halos" around bright lights) 
  • Diabetic retinopathy: progressive blindness in people with diabetes due to blood vessel damage behind the retinas (caused by high blood sugar)

How Our Ophthalmologists Diagnose and Treat Eye Diseases

The above list isn't all-inclusive, so we encourage you to see our Weston and Hialeah ophthalmologists with any concerns about your eye health. We help our patients by:

  • Providing accurate diagnoses using exams, vision tests, lab tests, and personal/family history
  • Offering customized treatment to manage symptoms, control disease progression, and improve eyesight
