Common Eye Conditions Our Optometrist Treats in Killeen and Salado, TX
Do you have symptoms of a vision condition or eye condition? At First Eye Care, we know how important it is to get an accurate diagnosis – and a prompt, thorough treatment plan – for any condition that affects your eyes. Because your vision and eye health are so important to our optometry team, we offer personalized treatments for a wide variety of eye conditions, from the rare to the incredibly common. But first, we start with a comprehensive eye exam and interview to figure out exactly what’s wrong.
Eye Conditions Treated By Our Eye Care Team
Here are some of the most common conditions that our team diagnoses and treats at First Eye Care in Killeen and Salado:
Degenerative Eye Conditions - Macular degeneration and glaucoma are two common but devastating eye conditions that can cause vision loss without a prompt treatment plan.
Diabetic Retinopathy - One of the earliest signs of diabetes (and also one of the most life-changing complications), this eye condition causes vision loss as the blood vessels grow due to undiagnosed or untreated diabetes.
Nearsightedness and Farsightedness - We offer prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses to treat these common refractive conditions, and we also recommend regular vision exams to keep track of your unique refractive error.
Pink Eye (Conjunctivitis) - Our optometry team has plenty of experience with this common eye infection, which affects the lens and eyelid. We will help you manage your symptoms and avoid spreading the infection as we treat it.
Dry Eye - Everything from genetics to habitual computer use can contribute to dry eye syndrome, a condition that causes itching, pain, and irritation because the eyes cannot lubricate themselves properly.
Allergies - If your eye irritation is caused by allergic reactions, our optometry team can help narrow down the source of your symptoms and manage the immediate symptoms as we work toward long-term relief.
Keratoconus - This progressive eye disease causes a cone-shaped bulge to form on the cornea, distorting vision and making it difficult for traditional lenses to do their job. Our eye care team can help correct this distortion.
Cataracts - Often related to age, cataracts are cloud-like formations that gradually affect vision. Our optometry team can help you explore your options for cataract management or removal.
Developmental Disorders - We offer eye exercises and eye care for amblyopia and other developmental eye conditions, which may affect vision from childhood through adulthood.
