Dry Eye Therapy

Dry eye disease is a progressive condition that affects your eyes’ moisture, leaving them feeling dry, irritated, and gritty. Dry eye disease commonly occurs when the tear film is unbalanced, causing tears to evaporate too quickly or not provide adequate moisture to the eyes’ surface.

Causes of dry eyes include:

  • Normal ageing process
  • Hormonal changes
  • Environmental conditions, like wind or dry climates
  • Eyelid problems, like entropion
  • Medications, like antihistamines
  • Underlying health problems
  • UV exposure
  • Irritants, like smoke

Laser Eye Surgery Consultation

If you currently need corrective eyewear, you may have thought about a day where you could rely less on glasses or contact lenses. Laser eye surgery may be the best option to give you that clear vision without the help of corrective eyewear.

At Alcona Eye Care Centre, we can give you the information you need to make an educated decision on whether refractive surgery is the best option for you. We also provide thorough pre and post-operative care to ensure you are prepared for the procedure and have the tools you need to recover.

Our staff are highly educated to ensure you choose the procedure that’s best for your eyes and lifestyle. Common laser eye surgeries we provide pre and post-operative care for include:

Eye Disease Diagnosis & Management

The goal of our comprehensive eye exams is to assess the health of your eyes and detect early signs of eye disease. Many common eye diseases do not show obvious symptoms and will not be detected without a detailed examination, so visiting us regularly is important for protecting your vision.

Common Eye Diseases & Conditions

Glaucoma

Glaucoma refers to a group of eye diseases that affect and deteriorate the optic nerve. Often, elevated intraocular pressure is the cause of optic nerve damage and results in irreversible damage and even blindness.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration, or AMD, is a degenerative condition that damages the macula (the central portion of the retina). AMD often occurs due to ageing, but has also been linked to obesity, high blood pressure, smoking, and having a family history of the condition.

Digital Eye Strain

We live in a world full of digital devices designed to make our lives easier. But are you aware of the effect these devices can have on our eyes and brain?

Working long hours at a computer or focusing on something close to your face can cause all kinds of uncomfortable symptoms, including headaches, back pain, difficulty focusing, and fatigue. However, it is entirely preventable with the right usage habits and corrective eyewear, if necessary.

The best ways to prevent digital eye strain include:

  • Adjusting your workspace, so screens are an arm’s length from your eyes
  • Adjusting your screen’s brightness and contrast to match your surroundings
  • Adjusting screens to avoid glare or reflections
  • Sitting with your back straight and your feet flat on the ground
  • Remembering to blink!
  • Using the 20-20-20 rule (every 20 minutes, take 20 seconds to focus on something 20 feet away)
  • Attending regular eye exams
