How Are Common Eye Conditions Treated?
Eye diseases and conditions can produce a variety of bothersome symptoms and impact your ability to see clearly, in some instances. Any concerns or abnormalities involving the eye should be evaluated promptly to help preserve your ocular health. Some of the most common eye conditions treated at Texas State Optical Bandera include:
Blepharitis: Inflammation of the eyelids that leads to red, swollen, itchy eyes.
Chalazion: Small cysts on the eyelids that can be treated with massage and warm compresses.
Conjunctivitis: Frequently referred to as "pink eye," conjunctivitis is the inflammation of the conjunctiva or thin, clear membranes covering your eye and lining your eyelids. It is often treated with antihistamines (allergic conjunctivitis) or antibiotic eye drops (bacterial conjunctivitis).
Red eye: Often a symptom of an underlying condition, red eye is where blood vessels in your eye expand due to irritation or infection.
Stye: A painful, infected bump that often develops as a result of an infected eyelid follicle. Styes tend to resolve on their own or with the use of warm compresses. For more resistant cases, our eye physicians may recommend antibiotic treatments or surgery to drain the stye.
Eye allergies: Often the result of environmental factors, eye allergies commonly mimic symptoms of more concerning eye conditions so it’s critical to visit an eye expert for a proper diagnosis. Eye allergy treatment may include prescription or over-the-counter eye drops, oral antihistamines, and allergy shots.
Texas State Optical Bandera Reviews
This office is absolutely amazing. I am giving them a five star rating. I had some difficulty navigating between my medical benefit and my vision benefit and they were able to explain in simple terms which one would work the best financially.it worked out great. Everybody in the office is so kind and professional, and I just had an overall great experience I use to hate going to the eye doctor, and that is no longer the case.
Friendly staff, knowledgeable and very helpful.
