Glaucoma: Glaucoma is a condition in which a higher than normal level of pressure is present on the inside of the eyes. This condition has few, or more commonly, no symptoms. Called ocular hypertension, this conditions impacts 2.2 million people in the US. It is one of the most common causes for blindness. Your San Antonio eye doctor will monitor this condition with you by taking ongoing pressure measurements and working with your medical doctor to control pressures.

There are several forms of macular degeneration. Here, a deterioration of the macula, or a portion of the retina that controls visual acuity, occurs. You may notice a change in your ability to read, recognize faces or drive with this condition.
Diabetic Retinopathy: Diabetic retinopathy occurs when damage to the blood vessels in the eye occurs as a result of having diabetes. This condition is monitored every year in those who have been diagnosed with diabetes. We’ll work with your medical doctor to treat this condition.
Dry Eye: Dry eye is a type of chronic condition in which the eyes do not produce any or enough quality tears, leading to itchy, scratchy eyes. This condition can be resolved with medications or other minimally invasive treatments.
Cataracts: Cataracts are a thin, milky film that develops on the outside lens of the eye. Individuals with this condition often develop limited or fuzzy vision. Our goal is to monitor the condition through eye exams and treat it by removing the cataracts.
