We have proudly served the Cypress area for over fifteen years and are committed to providing our patients with exceptional eye health care.
If you feel like there is something in your eye, blink a few times and see if it will come out. Sometimes small particles (like eyelashes, dust, etc.) can feel larger than they are and irritate the eye. However, sometimes foreign bodies can be lodged in the eye tissue. In this instance, you should never try to remove the object. The foreign object could be imbedded in the delicate tissues of the eye, and removal at home could cause serious injury to your eye. Dr. Oevermann uses specialized tools to perform this procedure.
Cataracts occur when the natural lens inside the eye becomes discolored or cloudy, causing blurred or distorted vision. This blurring is the result of a chemical change within the eye, most often occurring after the age of 55. The direct cause of cataracts is not known, although heredity, injury, and/or disease might be factors. Additional factors that may contribute to the development of cataracts include exposure to ultraviolet light, smoking, and certain prescription drugs. Although there is currently no known method to keep cataracts from developing, Dr. Oevermann can diagnose and monitor cataracts, and also prescribe glasses or lenses that may improve your vision.
Many of our patients take hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) as treatment for lupus, rheumatoid arthritis or other systemic conditions. One concern for these patients is retinal toxicity, which is known to occur with such treatment. Interval monitoring is aimed at early detection rather than prevention. Many symptoms or early warnings go unnoticed or are lacking altogether. Some patients, however, may notice a blurred area near the center of their vision. Unfortunately, once this blurred vision is noticed, stoppage of the drug is not likely to improve the vision level.
Inflammation of the eyelids is a condition called Blepharitis. This can be a chronic condition that is difficult to treat. Typically the inflammation occurs on the eyelid margins where the eyelashes grow. Blepharitis is a common condition caused by a malfunction of the oil glands at the base of the eyelashes. Such a malfunction can cause the growth of bacteria, which can then irritate and inflame the eyelids. The conjunctiva is the clear mucous membrane that covers the white part of your eye. The main function of the conjunctiva is to help lubricate the eye by producing mucus and tears.
Children should receive their first eye exam at the age of six months, then again when the child turns three. Subsequent exams should be given before the child starts school, then every two years after that. Based on family history or other indicators, your eye care professional may recommend a more frequent exam schedule. Many eye disorders, including hyperopia (farsightedness), myopia (nearsightedness), and amblyopia (lazy eye) can occur in early childhood, and may affect your child's ability to learn.
