What is glaucoma and do I have it?

Unfortunately, glaucoma has no symptoms. It can be caused by increased pressure in the eyes and undiscovered, may cause blindness. It is generally discovered during a routine eye exam and treated with prescription eye drops.

Should I go to an urgent care clinic if I get pink eye?

Eye doctors are the ideal professionals to determine what treatment is best for you as urgent care clinics may not have a microscope to examine if there is a foreign body (like a splinter) in your eye.

Pink eye can be caused by allergies, viruses, or bacteria and we recommend visiting your eye doctor for care.

Can diabetes cause blindness?

In certain age groups, diabetes is the number one cause of blindness as it can cause a “bleed” in the back of your eye causing permanent vision loss.
