Keeping an Eye on Your Ocular Health

Eye exams are for more than just visual acuity. Regular eye exams allow your optometrist to establish a baseline for your eye health and check for changes at every appointment. 

Preventative healthcare is important for your whole body—and vision care plays a big role. Many eye diseases can lead to vision loss if allowed to progress, and many begin without any noticeable symptoms.

At Eagle Vision, we want to see you regularly. It is important to identify any early signs of eye diseases so that we can treat them before they become worse

If you require surgery or other special treatment, rest assured that we have a network of trusted specialists and will promptly provide you with a referral.

Ocular Allergy Treatment

Allergies can lead to itchy and uncomfortable eyes in the short-term. However, long-term allergies can cause problems with scratches or ulcers.

Most people treat their allergies with over-the-counter medications like antihistamines. Eye drops can help to keep your eyes lubricated and reduce itchiness, decreasing your chances of scratching your eyes and harming them.

However, if over-the-counter medications are not helping or your allergies are getting worse and leading to pain, redness, and discharge, you really need to be seen by an optometrist. We are here for you if you are having allergies and are struggling with red and itchy eyes. We will go through all of your options until we find what works best for you.

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases characterized by damage to the optic nerve. Generally, this damage is caused by high intraocular pressure (IOP). 

There are 2 main types of glaucoma:

  • Open-Angle Glaucoma: When the eye’s drainage channels become blocked, IOP increases, damaging the optic nerve.
  • Angle-Closure Glaucoma: When the space between the iris and cornea narrows, fluid becomes trapped inside the eye, creating a rise in IOP. Angle-closure glaucoma can be acute or chronic. An acute occurrence is a medical emergency.

Secondary glaucoma and normal-tension glaucoma also cause damage to the optic nerve. Secondary glaucoma generally results from raised IOP due to trauma, while normal-tension glaucoma sees the optic nerve damaged while IOP remains normal. 

Glaucoma Risk Factors & Symptoms

Glaucoma risk factors may include:

  • Genetics
  • Eye trauma
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Age (over 60)
  • High blood pressure
  • Corticosteroid use
  • Extreme refractive errors

While glaucoma often progresses—like many eye diseases—without symptoms, here are a few signs that may indicate something is wrong:

  • Blind spots
  • Loss of peripheral vision
  • Tunnel vision
  • Blurry vision
  • Halos around lights


When the clear lens in your eye hardens and becomes opaque, this is the formation of a cataract. Generally, cataracts are part of the normal aging process. Vision loss can often be corrected by using glasses or contact lenses, but if cataracts progress, surgery may be needed. 

Symptoms of Cataracts

Symptoms of cataracts can include:

  • Blurry vision
  • Poor night vision
  • Halos around lights
  • Muted color vision
  • Light sensitivity

Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) can lead to central vision loss through damage to the macula. 

Central vision is responsible for close-up tasks like reading and writing, as well as driving and recognizing faces, so AMD can pose a serious risk to your daily activities.

Symptoms of AMD

Symptoms of AMD might include:

  • Straight lines that begin to appear wavy
  • Blurry central vision that cannot be rectified with corrective lenses

We recommend MacuHealth supplements for those who are at risk for developing AMD as well as and that we recommend MacuHealth Plus+ for those who have already been diagnosed with AMD.

These products are available for sale in our office.
