General Eye Care

Your eyesight continually changes as you grow older. At Victoria Eye Center, our team relies on regular eye exams to identify potential problem areas with your eyesight and provide the treatment necessary to preserve your vision for as long as possible. Even if your vision doesn’t “feel” any different it’s still important to see an eye care professional regularly to protect the overall health of your vision.


General Eye Care

The amount of people who have been treated at Victoria Eye Center since 1995 may seem astounding. While Victoria Eye Center doctors have performed 10,000 refractive and 25,000 cataract procedures over the years, we tend not to focus on the quantity of patients but rather our quality of care.

Healthy adults should have regular eye exams every 1-2 years so any underlying vision changes can be detected and closely monitored. Of course, if you already have a vision condition, more frequent exams will be necessary. During our eye exams, we will measure your eye pressure, check your visual acuity, look for signs of eye disease and prescribe eyeglass prescriptions if necessary. These exams may also indicate the possibility of other underlying health issues such as high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer or other medical conditions.
Itchy, watery, gritty-feeling, light-sensitive eyes are more than just a nuisance; living with these conditions can actually damage the tissues of your eyes and affect your vision. If you are one of the 10 million Americans with these symptoms, you may have dry eye. Over-the-counter eye drops will only provide temporary relief. The first step toward lasting comfort is to identify the root cause of your symptoms so we can recommend an effective treatment. Depending on your type of dry eye, we may recommend LipiFlow®, NanoTears® or another treatment.
Diabetes can damage the blood vessels in your retina (the back of your eye). Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics should have regular eye exams to monitor your eye health so conditions such as Diabetic Retinopathy can be diagnosed as early as possible (often there are no symptoms). Without treatment, your vision can become blurry or permanently lost. We offer diagnostic tests and various treatment options to help preserve your vision.
The retina is a layer of tissue located at the back of your eye. The prime function of the retina is to collect light entering your eye, convert that light into electrical impulses and deliver it to the brain via the optic nerve for visual recognition. If there is damage or disease in the retina, your vision will be impacted. Conditions such as Macular Degeneration and a detached or torn retina may have varying symptoms such as a dark shadow on your vision, spots or lines in your vision, straight lines that appear wavy and vision loss. If you are experiencing any vision changes like these, contact us to schedule an eye exam right away.
The cornea is the eye’s outermost tissue that allows light to enter the eye and protects your eye from environmental material and ultraviolet light. If the cornea becomes damaged, the smoothness and clarity may be lost. Any presence of swelling, scars or other irregularities of the cornea may cause light entering your eyes to become scattered and distorted. The result is blurry vision. We provide treatments to improve the corneal surface and shape including pterygium removal, keratoconus treatment, corneal transplants, laser vision correction and more.
