Eye Disease Management and Treatment
Our advanced diagnostics allow us to detect eye conditions and diseases in their early stages so we can implement timely interventions and preserve eye and visual health.
Common Eye Conditions in Mesa
Hyperopia, commonly known as farsightedness, is a refractive error that’s caused by the eye being shorter than normal or the lens being too concave, leading to distant objects being clear while close-up objects are blurry. Prescription eyeglasses, contact lenses, and LASIK surgery (depending on your eligibility) can correct hyperopia.
Astigmatism is a hard-to-fit eye condition that occurs because of an irregularly shaped cornea, leading to blurred or distorted vision at all distances. Glasses and toric contact lenses are common ways of correcting it. LASIK may also be an option.
Presbyopia is an age-related condition that affects most adults over 40, making it challenging to read fine print or perform close-up tasks. This condition is easily corrected using progressive, bifocal, and multifocal glasses or contacts.
Myopia, or nearsightedness, happens when the eye becomes too elongated or when the cornea is too curved, leading to light focusing incorrectly on the retina. This results in distant objects appearing blurry. Eyeglasses and contact lenses can effectively correct nearsightedness.
Dry eye syndrome is a chronic eye condition that’s triggered by insufficient tear production or poor tear quality, leading to discomfort, redness, and blurry vision. Our personalized treatment plans manage dry eye symptoms and restore comfort in the long term.

Eye Disease Management in Mesa, Arizona
Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve and lead to progressive vision loss if left untreated. Open-angle glaucoma and angle-closure glaucoma are the two main types of glaucoma. Open-angle glaucoma is the most common form and develops gradually over time, often without noticeable symptoms in the early stages. Angle-closure glaucoma, on the other hand, is less common but can cause sudden and severe symptoms such as eye pain, blurred vision, and halos around lights.
Our eye doctor uses advanced diagnostic techniques to detect glaucoma in its earliest stages, allowing for timely intervention and treatment.
Cataracts are a common age-related condition that causes clouding of the natural lens of the eye, leading to blurry vision and other visual disturbances. Cataract surgery, where the natural lens is replaced with an artificial one, can correct this condition.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
Macular degeneration is a progressive eye disease that affects the macula, the central part of the retina responsible for sharp vision. Wet and dry macular degeneration are the two main forms of this condition. Dry AMD is more common and progresses slowly, causing gradual central vision loss, whereas wet AMD is less common but can cause rapid and severe vision loss due to abnormal blood vessel growth in the macula. Treatments include monitoring, anti-VEGF injections, or photodynamic therapy.
Diabetic Eye Care
Diabetes can have a significant impact on your eye health, leading to conditions such as diabetic retinopathy and diabetic macular edema. Our diabetic eye care includes monitoring and management of complications associated with diabetes.
