How Optique Optometrists Treat a Variety of Eye Conditions

When you have an eye condition, the last thing you want to do is wait around for treatment. That’s why Optique Optometrists treat a variety of conditions with both urgency and care. We know that every patient is different, so we work hard to provide each patient with the best possible experience.

Optique optometrists are experts in the field of eye care and they treat a variety of conditions that can affect your vision.

Here’s a list of some of the most common conditions are treated by optometrists :

  • Refractive Errors:

If you have astigmatism, nearsightedness, farsightedness, or presbyopia (age-related farsightedness), then you may need eyeglasses or contact lenses to help you see more clearly. We will measure your prescription based on how well you see each eye individually at distance and near—not both together!

  • Eye Trauma:

Accidents happen! If yours happens to involve your eyes, we want to make sure it gets taken care of right away so that the damage doesn’t worsen over time. The qualified optometrist in Roodepoort will assess any damage done and either refer you out for further treatment or provide it themselves depending on what resources are available in your area.

Cataracts

A cataract is a clouding of the lens inside your eye that makes it difficult to see clearly. It can occur naturally as you age or develop due to injury or disease. A cataract is a clouding of the lens inside your eye that prevents light from focusing clearly on the retina. Cataracts often develop as you age, but you can also get them from injury or dehydration.

Cataracts can be treated through surgery or medications that help remove the cloudy lens and replace it with an artificial one. Choosing the right eye lenses for your eyes is now much more convenient.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is an eye condition that causes damage to your optic nerve and vision loss over time if left untreated. It’s caused by increased pressure in your eye due to fluid build-up behind the retina inside your eyeball.

These optometrists know several types of glaucoma including open-angle glaucoma (normal tension), closed-angle glaucoma (high pressure), pigmentary glaucoma (normal pressure), acute angle closure glaucoma.
