Another commonly treated problem in our practice is the removal of foreign bodies from the cornea or conjunctiva. If you have a foreign body call right away and we will remove it and get you feeling better right away. One piece of advice is to call sooner rather than later as most foreign bodies do not resolve or come out on their own. The longer you wait the more rust will have to be removed along with the metal. The eye becomes inflamed readily to rust alone.
Medical Eye Exams
There are many eye diseases that can be without symptoms until the advanced stages such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. We also treat eye diseases which cause significant discomfort such as dry eye syndrome and allergic conjunctivitis. We use state of the art equipment such as a Humphrey visual field analyzer and Optovue iCam retinal camera to diagnose and monitor eye diseases. A thorough ocular health assessment is included in every comprehensive examination.
Red Eye/Foreign Body/Medical Eye Exam
There are various causes of red eyes. Most are inflammatory in nature but there are also a lot of allergic, viral, and bacterial red eyes as well. Each different type of red eye requires a different treatment and we are very experienced at treating red eyes.
