The optometric team at Pack and Bianes Vision Care Optometry has one primary objective — protecting and preserving your vision and optimal eye health. While most eye conditions are treatable, detecting and diagnosing them at an early stage is crucial. As your eye conditions worsen, they become increasingly difficult to treat. As a part of the Total Vision network of optometric clinics, our exceptional optometrists use cutting-edge theologies to identify and treat eye conditions at their nascent stage. We take a proactive approach to eye care Terra Nova clients need — instead of waiting for symptoms to develop, we provide routine eye examinations to help you prevent eye conditions altogether.

Common Eye Conditions

Below are some of the common eye conditions we treat at Terra Nova and what our optometrists do to treat such conditions.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is an eye condition that occurs because of high intraocular pressure, i.e., high pressure within the eyes. If left untreated, glaucoma may eventually destroy the optic nerve responsible for vision. While glaucoma is most common in older patients over 60, it can also occur because of high blood pressure, diabetes, nearsightedness, and other risk factors. Pack and Bianes Vision Care Optometry provides regular glaucoma screenings to identify its early signs at a nascent stage and treat it with a combination of medications, laser treatments, or surgeries.

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is a side-effect or complication associated with type-1 or type-2 diabetes. It occurs when blood and fluids leak into the back of the eye due to damage to the retinal blood vessels. By the time you start noticing diabetic retinopathy symptoms, such as blurry vision, fluctuating vision, spots or dark strings in your vision, etc., it may already be quite advanced. As such, individuals with diabetes must go for regular eye exams to identify the disease at the earliest stage possible, when it can be treated with lasers, injections, or vitrectomy surgery.

Keratoconus

Keratoconus is a vision problem that causes a progressive thinning of the cornea, leading to blurry vision, nearsightedness, light sensitivity, irregular astigmatism, and double vision. If detected at an early stage, our optometrists can correct the problem with glasses or contact lenses. However, keratoconus is a dangerous chronic condition — if allowed to progress unchecked, you may eventually need aggressive intervention in the form of corneal transplant surgery. As such, you should go for regular eye exams to detect and treat keratoconus at the earliest stage possible.

Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry eye syndrome is a condition that causes chronically dry eyes. It happens when your eyes don’t produce enough tears, or you’re incapable of keeping them lubricated with a layer of tears. Dry eye syndrome may also lead to bacterial infections and surface inflammation in the corneas. Some of the early signs of dry eye syndrome are burning, redness, pain, watery tearing, stringy mucus secretion, and blurry vision. Your optometrist in Terra Nova identifies the root cause of your dry eye syndrome to curate the ideal treatment plan, which may include artificial tears or minor surgery.

Retinal Detachment

Retinal detachment is a dangerous eye condition wherein the retina, a thin tissue at the back of the eye, moves away from its normal position. Consequently, the retina is detached from the blood vessels that facilitate blood and oxygen circulation to your eyes. Without blood and oxygen circulation, you may eventually suffer from permanent loss of vision. As such, retinal detachment is an emergency situation necessitating immediate optometric attention. The moment you notice signs of retinal detachment, such as flashes of light or floaters in your vision, you must immediately contact our optometrists in Terra Nova.
