Improve Your Everyday Life with Our Comprehensive Treatment for Eye Conditions

Just as patients schedule routine check-ups for their bodies and teeth, the same should be done for the eyes. At Broberg Eye Care, we have a personable staff that strives to provide the same quality of care that we would want for our own families. The comprehensive eye care services available at our Austin practice include routine eye exams, diagnosis of eye problems, and advanced vision treatments.


Cataracts 

Cataracts cause vision to become cloudy, resulting in blurred vision, difficulty seeing at night, and light sensitivity. Cataracts can be treated with prescription glasses but will likely require cataract surgery at some point.

Glaucoma 

Glaucoma is a group of conditions that cause optic nerve damage and may eventually result in loss of vision. Eye drop medications may be able to reduce pressure on the optic nerves. However, when this is ineffective, selective laser trabeculoplasty may be recommended.

Blepharitis 

Symptoms of blepharitis include swelling of the eyelid, sensitivity to light, a burning sensation, and crusty or scaly skin at the base of the eyelashes. This condition may be caused by allergies, a blockage of oil glands on the eyelid, or an excessive growth of bacteria. While there is no cure for this condition, it can be treated and controlled through proper hygienic care of the eyelid and surrounding tissue.

Diabetic Retinopathy 

Patients with diabetes are likely to suffer from diabetic retinopathy, or damage to the blood vessels at the back of the eye. In its earliest stages, this condition can be managed through control of a patient’s blood sugar. However, as the condition progresses, we can offer more aggressive treatment.

Macular Holes

A macular hole occurs when the nerve cells of the macula pull away from the back of the eye. This can affect vision, making it difficult to focus on fine detail. It can also cause vision to become foggy. We can identify macular holes for our patients and refer them for surgical treatment.

Dry Eyes 

While there are a number of possible causes of dry eyes, the source of the condition is a lack of adequate production of tears. Chronic dry eyes can be diagnosed by our doctors so that an appropriate treatment can be determined. While mild cases of dry eyes may be treated with over-the-counter artificial tears, some patients may require prescription drops to help stimulate tear production.

Retinal Detachment 

Retinal detachment is a serious condition in which the retina pulls away from the blood vessels, leaving the retina without a source of oxygen or nutrients. If left untreated, this condition can lead to blindness. While we do not offer surgical treatment for retinal detachment at our practice, we do diagnose the condition and refer our patients for appropriate treatment.

Keratoconus 

Keratoconus is a bulging of the cornea that can cause blurred vision or sensitivity to light. This is a slowly progressive disease that can be identified by our doctors so that appropriate surgical treatment can be referred to a specialist.

Flashes and Floaters 

Flashes and floaters affect the vision and make it appear as though there are small specks floating through the air, or strange flashes of light. While flashes and floaters can just be a normal sign of aging, it can also be the result of a tear in the retina, or retinal detachment. Any flashes or floaters should be taken seriously, and reported to our doctors so we can provide an eye exam.

Pterygium

A pterygium is a growth on the white of the eye. In most cases, a pterygium does not cause a problem. However, if they grow large enough, they can interfere with vision and may require surgical removal. Learn more about pterygium removal surgery on our non-laser vision correction page.

Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration is a gradual condition that involves loss of vision in the center of the visual field. We perform exams to determine if macular degeneration is present, and to determine what stage of development it has reached. This allows us to recommend an effective treatment.

Presbyopia

As the eye ages, the lens may begin to harden, making it increasingly difficult for a patient to focus on objects that are close-up. This condition is known as presbyopia. The most common forms of treatment include the use of corrective lenses, or monovision treatment.

Conjunctivitis

More commonly known as “pink eye,” conjunctivitis is redness and swelling that develops most commonly as a result of a virus or bacterial infection. Viral cases of conjunctivitis should resolve on their own within 7 to 10 days, and those caused by bacteria can be treated by our doctors with antibiotics, and should clear up the condition in 2 to 3 days.

Corneal Diseases

The cornea is the clear film that covers the center of the front surface of the eye. This allows light to pass into the eye, and plays a major role in focusing incoming light. Symptoms such as blurry vision, light sensitivity, or pain may be signs of corneal disease. We can diagnose corneal disease and offer appropriate treatment, including surgery when necessary.

Eyelid Disorders

Eyelids protect the cornea and aid in the distribution of tears. Therefore, they play a very important role in maintaining eye health. The health of the eyelid can be compromised by infection, inflammation, structural damage, or the presence of benign tumors. When eyelid disorders occur, we offer treatment so that the health of the eyelid is restored, fostering proper function.

Learn More About Eyelid Disorders

Monovision

Monovision treatment involves the use of a contact lens on one eye that allows a patient to focus on close objects. It can also involve the use of a contact lens on the other eye that corrects distance vision. It can take a while to adjust to monovision treatment, but those who do are often quite happy with the results.

Learn More About Monovision

Pinguecula

A pinguecula is a small growth that can form on the conjunctiva, or the lining on the inside of the eyelids. This yellowish patch or bump is the result of a protein, fat, or calcium deposit, and is similar to a callus on the skin. Many cases do not need treatment, but if the condition becomes inflamed, eye drops may be used. In severe cases, surgical removal may become necessary.

Corneal Transplants

A corneal transplant may become necessary to treat severe cases of keratoconus, Fuchs' corneal dystrophy, and several other conditions that damage the cornea. The doctors at Broberg Eye Care can recommend this surgery if necessary after an in-depth examination of your eyes at our clinic.

Learn More About Corneal Transplants

Fuchs' Corneal Dystrophy

Fuchs' corneal dystrophy is caused when the innermost layer of cells in the cornea (the endothelium) degenerates. The endothelium maintains good vision by pumping out excess fluid in the cornea. Fuchs' corneal dystrophy can cause a decline in vision due to corneal swelling and clouding. We can identify this eye disease after a comprehensive examination and recommend the appropriate treatment option.

Eye Trauma

Your eyes are sensitive organs, and are susceptible to a variety of injuries and trauma. It is important to see an ophthalmologist as soon as any eye trauma occurs, as some injuries may require immediate surgery. The experienced doctors at Broberg Eye Care can treat different cases of eye trauma and safeguard the health of your eyes.

Double Vision

As the name suggests, when a person sees a double image instead of only one, it is referred to as double vision or diplopia. Double vision can be caused due to numerous factors, and the treatment is tailored accordingly.

Lazy Eye

Amblyopia or a lazy eye syndrome is associated with decreased vision in one or both eyes. Amblyopia can develop due to several causes, more often in children, including refractive errors, misalignment (strabismus), or cataract.
