We believe in preventive health. Having yearly eye exams can help prevent future complications and improve your day-to-day vision. We understand life is busy, with that in mind we try and make eye appointments easy and hassle-free for you. Our optical department is open every Saturday with an Optometrist on site to help you and your needs.
Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in the world. Glaucoma has been named the “silent thief of the night,” because there is no pain or symptoms until the disease is advanced enough to be making an impact on your vision. There is currently no cure, but it can be controlled, if detected early. Treatment includes eye drops and laser treatment to lower eye pressure, as well as surgery in advanced cases.
As we age, so do our eyes. The lens of our eye can gradually become cloudy, which can cause obstruction and can at times scatter light as it enters the eye, resulting in blurred vision that glasses cannot improve. Often these changes begin in your early forties and fifties, but do not become noticeable until you become sixty or older.
Here at Northwest Eye Surgeons we offer AcrySof ReSTOR, Toric and the new Multifocal Toric.
A major cause of vision loss in Americans is diabetic retinopathy. It is the leading cause of new cases blindness in adults from 20-74 years of age. During the first two decades of disease, almost all patients with Type I diabetes have retinopathy, and greater than 60% of patients with Type II diabetes have retinopathy.
The goal of treatment is to maintain current levels of vision, but in some cases may improve vision. Early in the disease, patients may be symptom-free which underscores the importance of annual exams.
Northwest Eye Surgeons also provides high quality skin care products and treatments. We are pleased to offer Juvederm (a smooth gel filler that softens deep folds and reduce wrinkles in the faces of patients), Botox (a FDA approved treatment for glabellar or frown lines of the upper face for men and women between the ages of 18 and 65 and for the treatment of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)), and the eyelid treatment of Blepharoplasty (which is an eyelid lift that can provide a more youthful appearance).
