Our Mansfield eye specialist practice at Heritage Eye Care is dedicated to bringing the residents of Arlington eye care that not only strives to help them achieve the best vision possible but also to ensure the continued health of their eyes by diagnosing and managing treatment for serious eye diseases. Our doctors use state-of-the-art ocular diagnostic equipment to complete a comprehensive examination of each patient’s eyes that includes a refractory exam to measure visual acuity and prescribe any necessary vision corrections, as well as a dilated exam where our doctor will be able to see deep into the eye’s structures to check for abnormalities and diseases.
If our Mansfield eye specialist does diagnose serious diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration or cataracts our practice will help manage the disease and treatment working with the patient’s ophthalmologist to monitor progress. These eye diseases are extremely debilitating and can cause vision loss but don’t exhibit any symptoms until vision has been affected, which is why an annual examination by our doctors is so important. Cataracts are slow developing clouding of the usually clear lens of the eye. The condition usually starts with the central part of the eye and makes it difficult to see at night or on a rainy day or beyond the glare of oncoming headlights. Surgery will replace the clouded lens with an artificial one. Our eye care practice will monitor the cataracts growth until it is ready to be taken out and adjust your vision correction prescriptions as needed before and after surgery.
Refractory surgery done through the aid of lasers is a type of eye surgery that has gained a great deal of popularity lately. LASIK is the most common laser vision correction procedure although there are other laser procedures that ophthalmologists use to correct myopia (nearsightedness) by reshaping the cornea. While our doctors don’t perform the actual LASIK procedure our Mansfield eye specialist will measure your vision acuity and conduct tests to see if a patient is a candidate for the laser surgery. Our practice works with your surgeon to monitor your progress as well as develop any intermediate or long-term vision corrections needed after the surgery. Call us for a consultation regarding cataract or LASIK procedures and let us be your long-term eye care partner.
