Your child may be nearsighted (myopia), farsighted (hyperopia) or have astigmatism. It is important that children who need glasses, wear them full time when they are young to develop good vision in each eye and three-dimensional vision. If your child cannot identify alphabet letters because of age or development, here is a link to pictures that can be reviewed at home before the vision test at the eye doctor. Visit our optical shop to learn more about our selection of pediatric frames. Amblyopia or "lazy eye" - Amblyopia occurs when the vision is reduced in one eye, causing it to be weaker than the other.
Our findings will be discussed with you after the exam, including any treatment options or therapeutic advice that may benefit you. Please arrive with any questions or concerns regarding your eye health, and be sure to discuss them with your provider during your exam. Nearsighted individuals typically have problems seeing well at a distance and are forced to wear glasses or contact lenses. The nearsighted eye is usually longer than a normal eye, and its cornea may also be steeper. Therefore, when light passes through the cornea and lens, it is focused in front of the retina.
The retina is the sensory tissue that lines the back wall of the eye. It can be described as the wallpaper of the back of your eye. A retinal detachment occurs when the retina is separated from the inside of your eye and can no longer transmit images properly through the optic nerve to the brain. If the center of the retina, the macula, is involved in the detachment, the vision is extremely blurred. If the macula is not involved in the area of detachment, there may be some loss of peripheral vision corresponding to the part of the retina that is detached.
Flashes and floaters are visual phenomena associated with changes occurring in the back compartment of the eye. Floaters are small dark shapes that appear in your field of vision. Often times they look like squiggly lines, specks or cobwebs that move with eye movement. They are most apparent against light background colors or in well-lit areas. Flashing lights can be described as thunderbolts, a spark or an arc of light occurring in the periphery of vision. Floaters occur when the vitreous, the jelly in the back of the eye, degenerates or shrinks.
Let us help you look your best. Our office specializes in non-surgical techniques, including BOTOX and filler, and surgical procedures, including eyelid surgery and brow lifts, to help enhance your natural appearance and make you look younger. BOTOX can prevent the formation of lines and wrinkles and take years off your appearance, while the filler is commonly used to enhance other aspects of the face, such as cheeks and lips and improve the appearance of deeper folds. Eyelid surgery and brow lifts can also drastically mitigate signs of aging and enhance your appearance.
Please consult with an ophthalmologist regarding glaucoma treatment options. Your Raleigh ophthalmologist will be able to diagnose the type of glaucoma and the actual severity of the Intraocular Pressure (IOP). Treatment options will drastically vary from patient to patient. If you experience any of these symptoms, you should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist as soon as possible. Any sudden, severe eye pain or loss of vision should prompt an immediate visit to your ophthalmologist. Regular eye exams are the only way to find glaucoma before it causes severe vision loss.
