What our Patients have to say
Ask Our Doctors a Question…
Dr. Furr: Glaucoma is a chronic disease that affects the health of your optic nerves, which are the cables that run from your eyes to your brain. It typically progresses slowly in both eyes and can lead to loss of side vision, or even blindness, if not detected and treated early. Glaucoma is usually associated with increased eye pressure, but you can still have glaucoma with normal eye pressure.
Dr. Colston: Stated simply, dry eye syndrome is a condition in which a person does not have enough quality tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. Not only can this be uncomfortable but tears are necessary for maintaining a healthy front surface of the eye and for providing clear vision.
Dr. Colston: I always ask patients, at any point of the day can you “feel” your eyes? Do they get red? Do they water? Do they feel tired? All of these are classic symptoms of dry eye syndrome. After looking at your eyes and a few simple tests we can determine if the source of these problems is dry eyes, allergies, or an infection.

LASIK surgery is currently the most popular elective procedure in the US, which is why our optometrists offer convenient co-management services to make it easy for you to benefit from this laser refractive surgery
Will removing cataracts improve vision?
Cataracts refer to when the normally clear lens of your eye clouds over. In a nutshell, cataract surgery removes this hazy lens and replaces it with a transparent artificial intraocular lens
