Conditions Treated by Our Eye Doctor in North and West Vancouver
Our eye doctor in North and West Vancouver first diagnoses most conditions and diseases of the eyes during patients' annual comprehensive eye exams. While some eye conditions and diseases present symptoms right away, many, such as glaucoma, do not cause noticeable symptoms until the condition has progressed beyond effective treatment. For this reason, we recommend patients schedule at least one annual eye exam in order maintain an up to date corrective lens prescription and to ensure the early diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases and conditions which could permanently damage eyesight.
Diagnosis and Treatment with Our Optometrist in West Vancouver and North Vancouver
At Hollyburn Eye Clinic's two locations, our optometrist in West Vancouver and North Vancouver are trained, experienced, and equipped to detect, diagnose, and treat a wide range of eye diseases and conditions. Most eye conditions and disease, including glaucoma, lazy eye, crossed eyes, and double vision, are best treated during early stages of progression. Eye problems commonly detected in patients include:
• Eye Strain
• Night Blindness
• Lazy Eye, Crossed Eyes, and Double Vision
• Visual Acuity Problems (Myopia, Hyperopia, Astigmatism, and Presbyopia)
• Dry Eyes
• Macular Degeneration and Diabetic Retinopathy
Our optometrists diagnose and detect eye conditions such as these with a series of routine eye exams, tests, inspection of internal eye structures, and evaluation of various eye functions which take place during a patient's comprehensive eye exam. These conditions have a range of varied treatment and therapeutic options for relieving symptoms and slowing their progression. Some of these treatments include topical agents, vision therapy, lifestyle and nutritional adjustments, corrective lenses, antibiotics, eye drops, and eye surgery. Depending on your diagnosis and medical history, our optometrists will work with you to determine the best course of treatment to preserve your eye health and vision.
Surgical Treatment with an Ophthalmologist
Depending on your eye condition, eye disease, or visual acuity problems, surgical treatment with an ophthalmologist might be the best course of treatment. Our optometrists at Hollyburn Eye Clinic perform surgical evaluations, pre-operative preparation, and post-operative care to our patients while working closely with highly recommended Vancouver eye surgeons. If you require eye surgery to treat an eye condition or interested in correcting your visual acuity with surgery, our optometrists will happily speak with you about and guide you through the process.
