When it comes to making sure your eyes are healthy, it is important to regularly have them examined by a trained optic professional who can look for a number of different conditions that you may not know you are suffering from. Unfortunately, many problems affecting the eyes arrive without any major or noticeable symptoms. As such, the best way to prevent them from doing serious damage to your eyesight is to constantly monitor the health of your eyes. Glaucoma is one such condition. At EyeCare Associates of San Bernardino, our Rialto optometrist will make sure to check your eyes for signs of glaucoma and provide you with the information you need to make sure this disease does not interfere with your life.

According to the May Clinic, glaucoma is actually not a single disease. The term refers to a number of different conditions, but the effect that they all have is the same. They caused optic nerve damage, which could eventually lead to permanent loss of sight. Generally, glaucoma is caused by high pressure inside the eyes, although this is not always the case. The condition comes in two major forms: primary open-angle glaucoma and acute angle closure glaucoma. Symptoms typically associated with primary open-angle glaucoma generally involve loss of peripheral vision. Symptoms related to acute open-angle glaucoma include, but are not limited to, eye pain, nausea and vomiting, and blurred vision. However, when both forms of the condition begin to develop, it is entirely possible that they will present no clear symptoms. That is why it is important to regularly have your eyes examined by your Rialto optometrist at EyeCare Associates of San Bernardino, where we will monitor your eyes closely for signs of glaucoma.

Although there is no cure for glaucoma, it can be managed, often with eye drops designed to reduce the pressure inside of the eye. There are other methods available, all of which our Rialto optometrist will be more than happy to discuss with you at EyeCare Associates of San Bernardino. Our team, led by Mike Morton, OD, knows that glaucoma can seem like a frightening diagnosis. We will address your concerns so that you can understand that, when working with skilled eye care professionals, you will be entirely able to manage this condition.

At EyeCare Associates of San Bernadino, our Rialto eye care specialists are dedicated to providing high quality eye care to patients of all ages. Our pediatric eye care caters to a number of eye conditions that are common in children. We would like our patients to be informed about these conditions so that they can recognize symptoms in their own children, and bring them in to EyeCare Associates of San Bernadino for treatment as soon as a condition is noticed.

One of the most typical eye problems that we see in children is amblyopia, or lazy eye. Amblyopia in general refers to a visual impairment in one eye that can result from a refractive error, a pediatric cataract, or misalignment of the eyes. There are many different symptoms that indicate that your child might have amblyopia, such as frequent squinting in one eye, double vision, bumping into objects, or visually seeing a difference in the alignment of your child’s eyes. If you notice any of these symptoms, it is important that you bring your child in for testing right away, because the sooner amblyopia is detected, the better chance your child has at making a full recovery using treatments such as wearing glasses, using eye drops, or sometimes surgery.

Another condition that is common in children is strabismus, which is commonly referred to as crossed eyes. Strabismus in general refers to eyes that are not aligned with each other properly. Strabismus can be present at birth, or it may develop over time. Symptoms that are common to strabismus include squinting, constant tilting of the head, double vision, or the appearance of the eyes being crossed or misaligned. If you notice any of these symptoms in your child, an eye examination from our Rialto eye care experts can confirm a diagnosis and begin treatment.

Contact lenses are a wonderful alternative to wearing prescription eyeglasses because they do not obstruct your vision in any way, and they do not cover up your face in any way either. They are relatively easy to maintain and come in a variety of brands and options. There are two main types of contact lenses that we provide at EyeCare Associates of San Bernadino, and our Rialto eye doctor will help you pick the ones that are best for you. The main separation is between soft contact lenses and hard contact lenses, also known as gas permeable contact lenses. Most patients elect to use soft contact lenses because of their comfort and ease of wear.

At EyeCare Associates of San Bernadino, we have all types and brands of soft contact lenses. We have soft contact lenses that you can wear overnight, that are for daily wear, that are disposable, that are for extended wear, and even color changing soft contact lenses that those without a prescription can use as well. Hard contact lenses are different from soft contact lenses because they provide sharper vision, but are not as comfortable to wear. Hard contact lenses are typically only used for patients with severe or very advanced refractive errors that are not sufficiently accommodated by soft contact lenses. If you’re not sure which type of contact lens would be best for your eye care needs, simply stop in and speak with our Rialto eye doctor.

If you are interested in switching to contact lenses from prescription eyeglasses, you should come in for an examination and consultation with our Rialto eye doctor at EyeCare Associates of San Bernadino. To learn more about the products and services that we offer our customers, we invite you to browse through our website and to get in touch with us if you have any specific questions or concerns. You can contact our Rialto eye doctor and the rest of our friendly, helpful staff here either by calling the office and speaking to someone directly, or by sending us a message using the Contact Us form located on our practice’s website. We hope to see you soon for all of your contact lens and any other of your optical needs at EyeCare Associates of San Bernadino.
