Conditions Treated and Eye Care from an Optometrist on Our Optometry Team
It can be essential to care for your eyes to maintain optimal health. An optometrist is a healthcare professional that specializes in eye care and vision health. An optometrist on our optometry team can diagnose, treat, and manage various eye conditions and recommend solutions to protect and enhance vision.
Here at Karns Vision in Knoxville, TN, our optometrists have knowledge and experience in treating a variety of eye conditions.
Cataracts occur when the clear lens of the eye becomes cloudy, causing blurred vision and increasing the glare from bright lights. An eye doctor on our team can diagnose and help treat cataracts.
Diabetic retinopathy is a condition that damages the blood vessels in the retina, causing vision loss. An eye doctor on our team can diagnose and manage diabetic retinopathy through regular check-ups, monitoring blood sugar, and providing proper care to prevent progression.
Dry eye is a chronic condition where the eyes don't produce enough tears or have poor-quality tears, causing discomfort, itching, and redness. An optometrist on our optometry team can diagnose and treat dry eye with various treatments, including eye drops.
Glaucoma occurs when there's an increase in eye pressure, which can damage the optic nerve and cause vision loss. We can diagnose and manage glaucoma, such as prescribing medication.
Myopia, Hyperopia, and Other Refractive Errors
Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a condition in which an individual can see objects that are closer but has difficulty with objects that are farther away. Our optometrists can diagnose this condition through an eye exam and prescribe corrective eyewear, such as glasses or contact lenses, to improve vision.
Hyperopia, also known as farsightedness, is the opposite of myopia. It is a condition in which an individual can see objects that are farther away more clearly than those that are closer. Our optometrists can prescribe corrective lenses to improve vision.
We can also help treat other refractive errors, including presbyopia and astigmatism.
Computer Vision Treatment
With the rise of technology, many people work on computers for long hours, leading to eye strain, blurred vision, and headaches. Our optometrists can suggest ways to alleviate these symptoms, such as taking frequent breaks from the computer and using specialized computer eyewear.
Amblyopia, Strabismus, Eye Infections, Pink Eye, Macular Degeneration and More
We can help treat many other different conditions. We can help treat amblyopia, which is lazy eye, and we can also help treat strabismus, which is crossed eyes. We can treat eye infections, including symptoms such as pink eye. We can also help diagnose macular degeneration and help you to get treatment for it.
