Flashes and Floaters

In most cases, eye flashes and floaters are little more than a benign annoyance. Experts estimate roughly 70% of Americans regularly experience eye floaters. However, a sudden increase in the number or size of eye floaters, or a sudden onset of eye flashes could be early warning signs of a more serious problem, like retinal detachment. When floaters become visually disruptive or disabling, the floater can be treated with either a laser or surgery.

Retinal Detachment

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, a heavy feeling in the eye, and flashes of light or shadowy images in the outer edges or central field of vision. Early diagnosis is important to increase your chances of successful treatment. 

Dry Eye

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, and then provide medication, surgical solutions, or, if needed, refer you to a trusted specialist.


Glaucoma is a progressive eye 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 of your eyes, he can refer you to a trusted specialist who can provide treatment options including medicated eye drops, laser surgery, or microsurgery.


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 vasoconstrictor eye drops, lubricating eye drops, or even steroid eye drops. Surgical intervention can address chronic discomfort or impaired vision in more advanced cases.

Comprehensive Eye Exams

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, people who have experienced sudden changes in visual acuity, or people who have risk factors for eye disorders, including chronic illnesses like diabetes. 


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. To treat cataracts, Dr. Sean Lalin offers all-laser cataract surgery which consists of extracting your clouded natural lens and replacing it with an intraocular lens (IOL) to restore your vision. Laser technology makes this treatment faster, safer, and more precise than traditional cataract surgery.
