At Brinegar Eye Care, we are here to take good care of the eyes of the people of Bloomington, IN. We treat a variety of conditions, including keratoconus, macular degeneration, dry eyes, and more.
Keratoconus is a condition that affects the cornea, causing it to become irregularly shaped. This can lead to blurry vision and other problems. Keratoconus might start in childhood or adolescence, but it can also start later in life.
Our team at Brinegar Eye Care can diagnose and treat keratoconus, using our treatment options to help manage your symptoms. These may include specialized contact lenses to help you manage your condition.
Macular degeneration is a condition that affects the macula, the part of the eye responsible for central vision. This can lead to problems with seeing objects clearly or recognizing faces. Macular degeneration is often age-related, but it can also occur due to other factors such as diabetes or smoking.
There is currently no cure for macular degeneration, but there are treatments available that can help improve vision. These treatments may include medications, vitamins, and surgery. Our optometrist will work with you to create a treatment plan that is best suited to your needs.
Dry eyes are a condition that occurs when the eyes don't produce enough tears, or when the tears evaporate too quickly. This can lead to a variety of problems such as eye irritation, blurred vision, and pain. Dry eyes can be caused by a variety of factors, such as aging, hormonal changes, environmental factors, and certain medications.
What Other Conditions Do We Treat?
We treat a wide variety of conditions at Brinegar Eye Care, including:
- Conjunctivitis (pink eye), red eye, dry eyes and abrasions
- Foreign body in eyes
- Ocular hypertension treatment
- Refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia, presbyopia, and the like.
Why Get a Routine Eye Exam?
Eye exams can detect eye diseases that you might not have been able to discover otherwise, at least not until it has already progressed. One example is glaucoma. This eye disease can cause permanent damage to your eyes before you have an opportunity to do anything. This is because by the time you notice the symptoms, irreversible damage has already been done. An eye exam, however, can detect glaucoma before the symptoms present themselves to you, therefore allowing you to catch and treat the condition before it is too late.
