Top-Tier Treatment for Itchy, Red, Dry Eyes
San Antonio and Castroville residents who battle eye problems do not have to go without professional help and assistance. At Medina Eye Care, we offer various effective treatment options that can not only eliminate uncomfortable symptoms but also address the root of your eye problems so you can enjoy great eyesight both now and in the future.
What to Expect from our Optometrist
We ask all clients coming in for their first appointment to bring as much information about their condition as possible. If you have any health conditions that may be contributing to the problem, let us know as this would determine which treatment options would be best for you. Your eye doctor also needs to know your health history to determine if a chronic condition such as diabetes, lupus, or arthritis may be causing your condition. If your work, free-time activities and overall lifestyle is affecting your eyes and/or being affected by your eye problems, tell us about it so you can create a personalized treatment plan that will suit your needs and budget.
While our eye doctors have the specialized training and tools needed for surgical procedures, we always start with non-invasive treatment options. In many cases, moisturizing eye drops combined with a few lifestyle changes can solve your dry eye problems. Our optometrist may also recommend that you improve your diet as a lack of vitamin A and/or Omega 3 oils in your diet can cause or contribute to dry eye problems. Other recommended treatment options may include eyelid scrubs, protective eyewear, and intense pulsed light therapy combined with eye massages. Your doctor may also prescribe medication to bring relief and remedy the problem.
If surgery is required to fix the root cause of the problem, your eye doctor will discuss your options to help you make a well-informed decision. Surgical procedures include plugging the tear ducts, so your tears do not escape your eyelids too soon or having plastic surgery on your eyelids. The latter procedure is not offered at our San Antonio and Castroville offices, but we can recommend a surgeon who can do the needed work.
