Working together with your optometrist, you can make the best eye care choices for you close to home in University City.

Common conditions our capable optometrists often treat include:

Dry Eyes

Dry eye syndrome is diagnosed when your tears don’t provide adequate lubrication for your eyes, or you do not make enough tears to lubricate your eyes. Symptoms can include uncomfortable dryness, stinging, burning, redness, blurred vision, and more. Without treatment, prolonged dry eyes can lead to eye infections and damage to the surface of the eye. 

While this condition is highly uncomfortable and even painful, it is also very treatable under the care of your Golden Triangle Optometric Center optometrist. Treatment may include the use of artificial tears or minor surgery. 


Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases caused by a high intraocular pressure, or increased pressure in the eye. This high pressure can damage the optic nerve, leading to noticeable vision loss and even blindness. Highlighting the importance of the screenings and tests performed by your optometrist, glaucoma can often not be reversible by the time easily noticeable symptoms occur. 

Prevention is always preferable, and your optometrist will evaluate your risk and help prevent the development of glaucoma with regular screenings. However, if your optometrist diagnoses glaucoma early in its progression during your Golden Triangle Optometric Center eye exam, there are several treatments which can be effective, including medications and surgery.


This progressive eye disorder causes thinning and bulging of the cornea, causing distorted vision and blurriness. Without treatment, keratoconus can progress to a point that many normal daily activities are difficult or impossible. However, your Golden Triangle Optometric Center optometrist can offer a variety of treatments for keratoconus such as specialty contact lenses, corneal inserts, and surgery.

Diabetic Retinopathy

This complication of diabetes causes swelling or leakage in the vascular network of the retina, the delicate blood vessels at the back of the eye essential to your vision. Treatments can be most effective before symptoms are noticeable, so it is important that all people with diabetes see their eye doctor at least once early for screening.

Careful management of your diabetes along with regular attention to your eye care can help reduce your risk of diabetic retinopathy, but a diagnosis is no cause for panice. Your Golden Triangle Optometric Center optometrist can offer several treatments for diabetic retinopathy, including vitrectomy, when your optometrist replaces the inner gel-like substance inside the eye, or laser surgery.
