Welcome to Wichita Optometry
Healthy eyes are essential for maintaining good vision and preventing both common and uncommon eye diseases. When the need arises to see an eye doctor, the first question new patients often ask is, “Where is there an eye doctor near me?”
Life can only be seen through clear eyes. At Wichita Optometry in Wichita, KS, we offer patients several alternatives to enhance their vision. While some patients are fond of eyeglasses, others prefer contacts.
How Can Optometry Care Help Improve My Vision?
Optometrists provide essential eye care solutions to patients with and without vision problems. We are the first line of defense against eye diseases. Our expertise allows us to examine, diagnose, treat, and manage an array of disorders of the eyes. It is through our intervention that many diseases are caught and treated in their early stages of development. One of the worst scenarios is not seeing an optometrist and dismissing what seems like unimportant or minor symptoms. Even the slightest irritation is cause enough to seek the opinion of a skilled optometrist.
The types of symptoms that patients should be concerned about are the ones that affect their vision. We treat:
- Dry eyes: At Wichita Optometry we specialize in treating dry eyes and their symptoms. Dry eyes include watery, red eyes that feel scratchy and uncomfortable. Dry eyes are caused by several factors, including age, illness, eye strain, allergies, diabetes, insufficient tear production, or hormonal changes.
- Cataracts: Cataracts make your vision cloudy and usually develop slowly over time. Cataract symptoms include blurry vision, which can get worse.
- Eye allergies: Depending on what season your eyes are exposed to, your eyes might turn red, look tired, or have discharge. This is normal for allergies. However, some allergies might not be so simple.
- Glaucoma: Glaucoma is an eye disease that affects vision and optic nerves. Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness, particularly in people over 60 years of age.
