Glaucoma Evaluation & Treatment
Glaucoma is an eye disease that results from high eye pressure. At Southwest Eyecare, we offer several types of glaucoma treatments. Upon visiting with one of our eye doctors, we’ll discuss your options with you to help determine which type of treatment is right for you and your situation, whether it be through eye drops, medication, or glaucoma surgery. If you need an examination to determine if you have glaucoma, or are considering glaucoma surgery, trust none other than the experts at Southwest Eyecare!
Cornea and External Disease
Determining if a patient has any corneal condition is typically part of every eye examination. If a corneal condition is confirmed, determining the best type of treatment is the next step. Some conditions can be treated with eye drops or medication but other conditions may require laser procedures such as Phototherapeutic Keratectomy (PTK), Corneal Surgery, or Corneal Transplantation (full-thickness or partial thickness).
Advanced Medical Dry Eye Treatment
Treatment for advanced dry eye syndrome can include artificial tears, prescription eye drops, LipiFlow®, which focuses on opening and clearing blocked glands, or a simple office procedure called Punctal Plug Occlusion during which temporary or permanent silicone plugs can be inserted in the lacrimal (tear) drainage ducts in your eyelids to keep tears on your eye from draining away as quickly.
Oculoplastic surgery, or ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery is a specialized area of ophthalmology focused on the health of the eyelids, orbit (eye socket), and the tear system.

Both type 1 and type 2 diabetics are at risk of developing diabetic retinopathy, which is caused by damage to the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye, or the retina. Treatment of diabetic retinopathy depends on the stage of the condition. It is important to diagnose this condition early as early stages do not require immediate treatment. contact Southwest Eye Care today for a diabetic eye evaluation!
