Here at Vision Quest Eye Care Centers, we aim to provide the most comprehensive care possible. This means that, in addition to preventative eye and vision exams that can reveal a great many eye conditions, we can also offer primary treatment for many of these conditions. Here are just some of the common conditions treated by our optometrists in Milford and Dover.
Pollen, chemical irritants, pet dander and other allergens can cause allergic conjunctivitis and possible corneal injury. We can identify your particular eye allergies and recommend the right set of remedies to help you obtain relief.
Dry eye is characterized by eye redness, itching, light sensitivity and eye fatigue. We can analyze your tear production and tear film to determine whether you need eye drops, lifestyle/work habit changes, or treatment of a contributing eye condition.
When poor fluid drainage causes pressure to rise inside the eye, the resulting optic nerve damage is called glaucoma. Our eye doctors can test for this condition and prescribe medication to better regulate fluid pressure.
Cataracts may take years to start affecting your vision, but eventually they can cause blurring, reduced night or color vision, and even blindness. We can monitor your cataracts, prescribe corrective lenses and other compensations, and co-manage surgical cataract removal if need be.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD), which becomes evident in your senior years, can drastically reduce your central vision by destroying the part of the retina known as the macula. We can prescribe dietary changes, protective eyeglass filters, and even injectable medications to help you curb progressive vision loss.
Diabetic retinopathy is a side effect of high blood sugar's destructive effects on blood vessels, damaging the retina's blood supply, causing abnormal blood vessel formation, and possibly causing blindness. We can alert you to this condition and recommend treatment options as you work with your doctor to get your diabetes controlled.
Flying debris, chemical spills, direct impacts, and other threats can cause an eye injury requiring immediate attention. We can evaluate your injury and provide soothing care to help your eye heal.
