LASIK

Laser assisted in situ keratomileusis, commonly referred to as LASIK, is a corrective alternative to glasses or contact lenses. Like glasses or contact lenses, LASIK is a method for treating refractive conditions including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. At 2020 Vision Associates Optometry, our doctors provide pre- and post-operative exams for LASIK and other eye procedures.  We partner with NVISION Laser Centers who provide top tier laser surgery.

Glaucoma Medical Management

Currently, glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the United States.

Glaucoma refers to a group of conditions that compromise the optic nerve, which is the nerve responsible for transmitting visual information from the eye to the brain.

Glaucoma usually is related to a high level of pressure inside the eye and corresponding peripheral vision loss. If caught early, the progression can be slowed down or stopped to preserve vision.

At every comprehensive exam, we run screening tests including visual fields and testing of eye pressure. We also check the condition of the optic nerve for any risk of glaucoma. If you are a suspect, we will recommend a baseline glaucoma evaluation.

All of our doctors at 20/20 Vision Associates are Glaucoma Certified and committed to timely diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma.

We use the latest technology for our glaucoma evaluations, including an ultrasound scan of the optic nerve. Below is a photo of one of the machines used, called Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT).


Keratoconus/Specialty Medically-Necessary Contact Lens Fitting

Keratoconus is when the cornea (the clear part of the eye) thins and bulge out, typically in a cone like manner. This creates irregular astigmatism, which defocuses the light creating considerable blur to the person.

What causes keratoconus?

There appears to be a genetic component in patients with keratoconus; 1/10 of have a family member with the condition.

Management

In the beginning keratoconus patients can be corrected through traditional refractive error methods such as glasses and/or contacts. Gas permeable (rigid lenses) can help the patient obtain the best vision by correcting irregular astigmatism.  Scleral lenses may be utilized to improve outcomes.

Surgery / Cross linking

FDA recently approved of a procedure called corneal crosslinking which uses UV light and medication to stiffen and strengthen the cornea. In advanced stages of keratoconus patient undergo corneal transplant, which replaces the entirety of the thin cornea with a donor cornea.

At 20/20 Vision, we have the technology to diagnose keratoconus and help obtain optimal vision with specialty contact lenses. We first obtain a map of the front of the patient’s eye, called topography:








We able to fit specialty contact lenses extremely accurately with an HD cornea OCT ultrasound:

In the early stage, keratoconus symptoms can include:

  • mild blurring of vision
  • slightly distorted vision, where straight lines look bent or wavy
  • increased sensitivity to light and glare
  • eye redness or swelling

In later stages, keratoconus symptoms often include:

  • more blurry and distorted vision
  • increased nearsightedness or astigmatism (when your eye cannot focus as well as it should). As a result, you may need new eyeglass prescriptions often.
  • not being able to wear contact lenses. They may no longer fit properly and they are uncomfortable.
