Eye Conditions

Find out more about the eye
Blepharitis/MGD refers to low-grade inflammation of the eyelids and obstruction of the oil glands of the eyelid (Meibomian Gland Dysfunction), often in association with dandruff-like scaling of the skin at the base of the eyelashes.

This condition is a very common cause of chronic low- grade eye redness and discomfort. Blepharitis/MGD can lead to a variety of symptoms and can contribute to dryness of the eyes.



Cataracts cause progressive, painless loss of vision.  The lens clouds naturally as we age, so people over the age of 65 usually see a gradual reduction of vision.  No one is exactly sure what causes cataracts.

Learn More
In younger people, they can result from an injury, certain medications or illnesses such as diabetes.  Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light may also play a role in the formation of cataracts.  Studies have also shown that cigarette smokers have a higher risk of developing cataracts than non-smokers.



Dry eye disease is a condition that at it’s simplest causes only mild, occasional discomfort but at it’s most severe can even lead to blindness. It is a term used for when your eyes are insufficiently moisturized, either because they do not

produce enough tears or because the tears have an improper chemical composition. Most patients with dry eye disease fall somewhere in the middle of these two extremes leading to impaired quality of life.



Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States.  It is the name given to a group of diseases that cause a characteristic type of damage to the optic nerve.

Learn More
The risk of glaucoma increases with age, diabetes, nearsightedness and a family history of the disease. It is often associated with high pressure within the eye. The most common type of glaucoma, chronic open-angle glaucoma, causes a slow, “silent” loss of vision.




Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in Americans under the age of 55.  Prevention or early detection and treatment are vital to preserving sight.  All diabetics should have yearly dilated eye exams to detect any retinopathy.

With the latest in high-resolution digital imaging and laser technology, we provide state-of-the art diagnostic and treatment options.  Combining routine eye care with steady blood sugar levels and a healthy diet, patients can reduce their risk of complications and permanent vision loss.


Macular degeneration, a disease that affects the center of the retina called the macula, is the leading cause of blindness in adults over the age of 55. It involves a weakening of the retinal tissues that cause gradual vision loss and may develop as a result of genetics, age, diet, smoking and sun exposure.

Patients with this condition may experience distorted or blurry vision, a loss of color vision or a dark area in the center of vision. The resulting degeneration can lead to severe central (not peripheral vision) vision loss.
