Scleral Lenses (RGP Lenses) for Keratoconus, Corneal Scars, High Astigmatism/Refractive Errors

iSeeU Optometry is proud to offer scleral lenses for our patients. Scleral contact lenses are often used for people who are unable to use traditional contact lenses. There are plenty of eye conditions where traditional lenses simply won’t work.

Scleral lenses get their name because they cover the whole eye instead of just a portion of the cornea. They rest on the sclera (the white part of your eye). Since they are much larger than traditional lenses, they are more stable on eyes and don’t get dislodged easily.

Scleral lenses are also more comfortable—once you put them in! For this reason, they can also be used on sensitive eyes or irregularly shaped corneas. Scleral lenses can also be used by people who suffer from dry eyes.

Scleral lenses can be more expensive than traditional lenses because they are custom-made to fit your eyes. It takes special tools and imaging devices to measure your eyes and order your lenses. Vision insurance can help with these extra costs, and we will be happy to discuss payments at your visit.

If you have any questions about scleral lenses or if you want to set up an appointment to try them, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (760) 341-6324.

Cataracts Palm Desert, CA

Cataract Co-management

Cataracts cause a clouding of the lens in the eye, making your vision appear to be foggy. Cataracts are the most common cause of vision loss in people over 40 and are the leading cause of blindness in the world.

Your eyes are meant to naturally adjust to normal light changes, adjust focus, and allow us to see both near and far. Your lens is primarily made up of water and proteins. The proper arrangement of these proteins is what contributes to normal vision. Some of these proteins clump together forming a clouding of the lens.

LASIK Co-Management Palm Desert, CA

LASIK Co-Management

LASIK stands for laser in-situ keratomileusis and is a popular surgery to correct vision problems. LASIK can help people who are nearsighted or farsighted, as well those who have astigmatism.

LASIK works by reshaping the cornea with a laser, which allows light to be correctly focused onto the retina. A laser is used to create a small flap in the cornea, which is peeled back so another laser can reshape the cornea. The flap is then placed back and the surgery is complete.

Dry Eye Treatment Palm Desert, CA

Dry Eye Treatment

iSeeU Optometry is proud to offer dry eye treatment for our patients. Ocular Surface Disease, also known as dry eye, can occur from certain medications, naturally by aging, or as a symptom arising from systemic diseases such as Sjogren’s syndrome, Rheumatoid arthritis, or Lupus. If you have a minor case of dry eye, you may be experiencing irritation, excessive tearing, fluctuating vision, and/or a burning sensation in your eyes. Excessive dry eyes, or dry eye symptoms that go untreated, have the potential to damage eye tissue, scar your corneas, and impair your vision.

Computer Vision Palm Desert, CA

Computer Vision

Computer Vision is a relatively new term within the optometry field and refers to eye problems associated with the prolonged use of computers and electronics that utilize a digital screen. Although it can be temporary, there are times when computer vision can strain the eyes to a degree that permanently affects your vision as well. An existing eye condition can worsen as the eyes try to focus and adjust to a computer screen, and precautions should be taken if you spend long hours in front of a computer screen.

If you have been experiencing blurry vision, dry eyes, eye strain, headaches, neck or back pain, try adjusting the lighting, posture, and the distance in front of your computer screen. If computer vision symptoms persist, call us to request an appointment, we will perform a full evaluation.

Retinal Photo – Dilation Exam

Here at iSeeU Optometry, we are proud to offer retinal photography for our patients.

Digital retinal photography allows us to take pictures of the back of your eye so that we can look for any problems. We can use these photographs to not only find the reason for your worsening vision, but also to diagnose high blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol, and even brain tumors.

It is really important to use digital retinal photography because many problems that can lead to blindness start without showing any symptoms. If a problem affects your vision just a little, you may not even realize it’s a problem until it is too late.

Digital retinal photography is also the only way to diagnose certain diseases like macular degeneration, glaucoma, and retinal tears. The sooner we are able to diagnose them, the easier they will be to treat and the less likely it is that you will become blind.

Digital retinal photography uses a digital camera to take a picture of the back of your eyes. We can keep it in your file to examine both now and later if we need to track changes in your eyes through time.

Our retinal photography is crucial to being able to predict and prepare for common issues that come with age.

If you have any questions about retinal photography, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (760) 341-6324.

Digital Retina Imaging Palm Desert, CA

Digital Retina Imaging

Using a digital camera system, our optometrists at iSeeU Optometry can clearly see and examine your retina, located at the back of your eye. This examination is critical to monitoring the health of your eye as well as to the early detection of many medical problems. The pictures generated through retinal imaging help us identify problems with your vision and can also help diagnose other medical conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol, or even brain tumors.

Digital retinal imaging is important because, often, vision or eye problems can develop with no clear symptoms. Subtle changes in your vision can be hard to detect and diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, or retinal tears may only be visible through these images. Even in healthy eyes, retinal imaging is important as it allows us to track changes in your eyes over time so we can better predict and prepare for common issues that affect eyes as they age.

Keratoconus Palm Desert, CA

Keratoconus

Keratoconus is a non-inflammatory disorder that affects the cornea. The cornea becomes thinned and steepened, resulting in distorted vision, sensitivity to light, and decreased vision. Symptoms typically manifest in a person’s younger years, usually the late teens or 20’s.

Keratoconus can affect a person’s ability to read or drive, which can be a major obstacle for people. Luckily, this is a condition that can be diagnosed through a routine eye exam, which underscores the importance of scheduling regular eye exams for you and your children.
