Gradual blurring of vision, which progresses slowly over several months or years, always accompanies developing cataracts. Cataracts often cause glare in bright light or around lights at night, and colors begin to fade. Cataracts usually develop in both eyes, although one cataract is often worse than the other.

Dry Eye is most often a result of the eyes’ natural aging process. Most people’s eyes tend to become drier as they age; however, the degree of dryness varies, and some people have more problems than others. If untreated, Dry Eye can be more than just irritating or uncomfortable. Excessive dry eye can damage eye tissue and possibly scar the cornea, the transparent front covering of the eye, impairing vision. Contact lens wear may be more difficult due to the possibility of increased irritation and a greater chance of eye infection. Request an appointment with us today!Learn More

Blepharoplasty, also known as an eye lift, is a procedure to correct the sagging or drooping of the eyelids and the removal of excess fat, skin and muscle. As we age, it is common to see a difference in the eye area: more laxity, bags below and above the eye; sometimes so much that the upper lid seems to disappear underneath the extra fatty area under the brow bone. Even with good skincare and eye care, wrinkles, puffiness and drooping eyelids will catch up to you. Genetic factors and body chemistry can cause these aging effects in younger people. Blepharoplasty can give a more youthful appearance to an otherwise older, more tired looking, face. Learn more about Blepharoplasty!Learn More
