If you’ve been diagnosed with eye conditions or vision problems, you probably understand the value of going for regular eye care exams to protect your vision and overall eye health. Regular eye exams at a reputable and state-of-the-art optometric center in Bonita allows you to address vision problems at the earliest stage to prevent them from worsening.

Once you receive a diagnosis from the optometrist, we work with you to curate the ideal treatment plan according to your specific goals, preferences, and lifestyle. As a part of the Total Vision network providing exceptional eye care, Bonita Point Family Optometry offers the most advanced diagnostic and treatment solutions in the region. Please continue reading to learn more about common eye problems.

Refractive Errors

Refractive errors are vision problems that occur when your eye doesn’t bend light correctly to focus on the retina. It happens due to irregularities in the shape of the cornea, i.e., the lens of the eye. Refractive errors are responsible for most cases of blurry vision, including hyperopia (farsightedness), myopia (nearsightedness), astigmatism (generally blurry and distorted vision), or presbyopia (age-related farsightedness).

Most refractive errors can be treated with contact lenses or glasses, though you’ll need to go for annual exams to keep your prescription updated. If you don’t want to wear contact lenses and glasses, you can also consider Lasik surgery to reshape the cornea and restore 20/20 vision. If you’re considering Lasik surgery, please schedule a Lasik consultation with an optometrist in Bonita.

Strabismus/ Crossed Eyes

Strabismus is a condition wherein your eyes have trouble coordinating. The eye that’s focused on an object may alternate, making it seem like you’re looking in two directions at the same time. It’s usually diagnosed in childhood, and it can be treated with eye exercises, vision therapy, patches, specialized glasses, or surgery (in the worst cases). 

Amblyopia/ Lazy Eyes

Amblyopia is a condition wherein your brain only receives input from one eye. If allowed to continue, the weaker eye may continue weakening until you suffer from complete loss of vision from one eye. It’s usually diagnosed in childhood, and it has similar treatments as strabismus, consisting of eye patches, vision therapy, exercises, specialized glasses, and possibly surgery.

Cataracts

Cataracts are cloudy formations on the lenses of the eyes, causing blurry and cloudy vision. Cataracts are progressive — if left untreated, they continue expanding and eventually cause complete blindness. Cataracts are one of the leading causes of blindness in older individuals, even though they’re extremely treatable.

If diagnosed early, your eye doctor can treat cataracts with specialized glasses and eye drops. However, if allowed to persist, your eye doctor may need to resort to aggressive surgical methods to remove cataracts. If your vision seems hazy or cloudy and the colors seem duller than usual, you should immediately contact your optometrist.

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is an eye disease wherein the blood vessels in the back of the eye are damaged, leading to loss of vision or possible blindness. As the name suggests, this eye condition is common amongst diabetic individuals. If you’re diagnosed with diabetic retinopathy, your optometrist in Bonita may recommend a treatment plan consisting of laser surgery, medications, or vitrectomy surgery.
