Eyecare Services Offered by a Lafayette, CA, Optometrist
Lamorinda Optometry, serving Lafayette, CA, and the nearby region, would like you to know that we're here to help you see clearly. We'd like to share with you some of the treatments we provide and stress that these all branch from a routine eye exam.
Eye Tracking Problems
Eye tracking problems occur when your eyes won't track an object. It can interfere with your ability to read as quickly as the average person. In kids, it can make learning to read in general a difficult feat.
Sometimes, both eyes struggle to work together to track an object, or the eyes will move too rapidly. Through therapy, like eye tracking exercises and possibly wearing a patch, we can assist.
Dry eye occurs when your eyes are dry, which most often happens as a person ages. However, certain medications and health conditions can lead to it. It's sometimes a side effect of LASIK eye surgery.
Fortunately, eye drops, medications, and specialized hydrating contacts can manage this problem effectively.
Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a vision deficit affecting distance vision. It's most common in children and may continue to worsen until a person is between the ages of 20 and 40.
Depending on the severity of the condition, it can interfere with your ability to enjoy sites that require you to see far away. It can also make driving difficult and unsafe for you without vision correction.
For myopia, our optometrist will perform an eye exam to determine if you have it and the extent of it. Then, as part of your myopia treatment, we'll recommend either contacts, glasses, or both to correct it.
As briefly noted above, we offer specialized contacts with high fluid concentrations if you have dry eye to ensure comfort. If you need myopia control and have astigmatism or a size of eye that's uncommon, our practitioner can prescribe and fill the prescription for hard-to-fit contacts.
If you have a severe vision deficit or would like to not wear contacts throughout the day, we can offer you myopia management through Ortho-K. This is a specialized type of contact you wear while you sleep and remove throughout the day. It shapes your eye so you have vision correction throughout the day. For Ortho-K, you'll need to undergo a fitting process unlike that of a standard fitting, seeing as how the size of the contacts is especially imperative for this treatment.
