Preventative eyecare is critically important for all ages, and our eye doctor and his team can perform eye health, eye function and vision evaluations on a regular schedule. These easy, painless evaluations give us a chance to detect serious issues such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and other problems as early in their development as possible -- which means you can get the treatment you need in time to protect your eyesight.
Our eye doctor can also help you with other eye issues that interfere with your health and comfort. Dry eyes, for instance, can cause irritation, redness and vision problems while making the eye more vulnerable to infections and damage. Our Lake Norman eye doctor can provide the necessary treatment, lifestyle counseling and other eyecare to help you get your dry eyes under control. We can also treat conjunctivitis and other common discomforts.
Regular vision testing lets us identify and correct refractive errors that cause eye strain and impair your ability to read, write, drive and generally enjoy life. Our Huntersville optometrist can determine your exact corrective lens prescription and provide you with stylish glasses to correct astigmatism, myopia, hyperopia and presbyopia. Our eye doctor can also provide the necessary additional testing to fit you for contact lenses. Modern multifocal contact lenses can correct presbyopia just as bifocal ormultifocal eyeglasses do.
One of the most exciting advances in contact lens technology, Ortho-K, enables many people to enjoy crisp, clear daytime vision without wearing any corrective lenses. Ortho-K contact lenses are designed to be worn at night, during sleep. These special lenses gently and temporarily re-contour your corneas, permitting you to wake up to terrific vision that can last for days at a time.
If you're interested in long-lasting, lens-free vision correction such as LASIK laser eye surgery, or you need another kind of eye surgery such as cataract removal, you can rely on the Lakeside Eye Associates optometry team for essential backup and support. We will counsel and educate you on your condition and your surgical options, do all the preliminary testing and measurement and refer you to a skilled eye surgeon for the procedure. We will then follow up by monitoring your post-operative condition through periodic eye evaluations and vision testing.
