Eye Conditions We Treat

We treat the following eye conditions at Saland Vision:

Cataracts
A cataract is a condition where the natural lens of the eye becomes cloudy (usually as a result of aging) due to protein buildup in the eye, which causes blurry or distorted vision. Saland Vision provides a safe and effective surgery to remove the clouded lens and replace it with a clear lens implant, or a premium intraocular lens, to restore clear vision. Our cataract surgery procedure is quick, painless and requires no stitches or injections.

Diabetic Retinopathy
Diabetic retinopathy is a complication that can occur with diabetes. This eye condition is the result of the optic nerve becoming damaged when erratic blood sugar levels cause damage to the retina’s blood vessels. The result is distorted vision, vision loss and even permanent blindness if left untreated. Saland Vision provides surgical options to slow, or even stop, the progression of this disease.

Glaucoma
Glaucoma is an eye disease that occurs when the optic nerve is damaged as a result of fluid buildup in the eye causing high intraocular (eye) pressure. This disease causes gradual, though permanent, vision loss, and results in complete blindness if left untreated. Saland Vision offers effective treatments to slow the progression of this disease and prevent a large amount of vision loss.

Dry Eye
Dry eye (keratoconjunctivitis sicca) is a condition where the tear ducts don’t produce enough, or a high enough quality of, tears to lubricate the eyes. As a result, the eyes are chronically dry, causing eye irritation. We offer a few treatment options, ranging from eye drops to surgery, to help relieve this uncomfortable eye condition.

Chalazion/Stye
A chalazion is a nodule that forms inside the eyelid. A stye is a small, swollen bump that forms on the eyelid when an oil gland becomes infected. Both of these eye conditions are usually benign, though some chalazia and styes can last for several weeks. As a result, many people seek treatment for these uncomfortable and unsightly eye conditions. Our eye experts at Saland Vision offer treatments that range from topical ointments to surgical removal, depending on the severity of the condition.

Macular Degeneration
Macular degeneration, or age-related macular degeneration (AMD), is an eye disease that occurs when the macula (or central portion of the retina) deteriorates, causing loss of vision, typically central vision.
There is no cure for AMD, but we offer treatment options to help slow the rate and amount of vision loss associated with this disease.
