In most cases, flashes and floaters are little more than a benign annoyance. However, a sudden increase or onset of eye flashes could be early warning signs of a more serious problem, like retinal detachment. When floaters become disabling, they can be treated with either a laser or surgery.
Retinal detachment is very serious condition that can threaten your vision, and it should be treated as an emergency. Symptoms include a sudden increase in the number of floaters you observe or a heavy feeling in the eye. Early diagnosis is important to increase your chances of successful treatment.
Occasional dry eyes are normal and can result from seasonal allergies and certain medications. Chronic dry eye, however, can cause serious discomfort and impair your vision. Before recommending treatment for this common condition, your ophthalmologist will first determine the cause of your dryness.
Glaucoma is a progressive condition often characterized by a buildup of pressure within the eye. Left untreated, glaucoma can permanently damage the optic nerve, and even cause blindness. If Dr. Lalin detects abnormal pressure within one or both eyes, he can refer you to a trusted specialist.
These benign growths occur on the white portion of the eye and are usually caused by prolonged exposure to sun, dust, and dry conditions. Although pterygium is not considered a serious health condition, they can cause discomfort. Your ophthalmologist may recommend drops or surgery.
Preserving your vision and maintaining good eye health starts with a focus on prevention and early detection of any problems. Comprehensive eye exams are recommended for people over the age of 60, those with sudden changes in visual acuity, or people who have risk factors for eye disorders.
Cataracts are a buildup of proteins that cloud the clear lens at the front of your eye, eventually causing burred vision, vision loss, and blindness. Dr. Lalin offers all-laser cataract surgery to restore your vision, which makes treatment faster, safer, and more precise than traditional surgery.
