Burgett Kresovsky Eye Care offers the latest technology for diagnosis, treatment, and prevention for a wide array of eye conditions. We treat adults and children for a multitude of ophthalmic conditions, performing basic and advanced medical and surgical eye care. Our doctors use the latest technology to treat your eye care needs, including same-day, in office laser procedures and no-shot, no-stitch small incision cataract surgery.
Cataract Surgery: As the lens inside your eye ages, vision can become blurry and result in difficulty reading, driving and watching television. The lens can be replaced with an artificial lens (called an intraocular lens, or IOL). Our physicians will work to select a lens customized for your eye to restore optimal, clear vision.
Eyelid Surgery: Eyelid drooping or excess eyelid skin can affect the vision. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) can be performed on your eyelids to improve your quality of life. It is often performed to remove excess skin covering the natural fold of the upper eyelids or loose skin hanging down from the upper eyelids over the eyelashes.
When the eyelids turn in or out, they can irritate the eye as well in a condition called entropion or ectropion. This condition can be corrected with surgical intervention to restore proper orientation of the lid.
Diabetic Eye Care: Diabetes can harm your eyes by causing damage to the small blood vessels in your retina, which is the light sensing part of the eye. This diabetic retinopathy can cause silent damage without symptoms early in the course of disease. Diabetes also increases your risk of glaucoma, cataracts, and other eye problems. With regular eye exams, our doctors can identify problems early, in order to prevent them from worsening.
Pediatric Eye Care: Our doctors treat a variety of pediatric eye conditions such as amblyopia (lazy eye), blocked tear ducts, and strabismus (turning in or out of the eyes). Occasionally, correction with glasses can help many of the common pediatric eye problems.
Glaucoma: Glaucoma is a progressive eye disease that damages the optic nerve, which connects the eye to the brain. Glaucoma results in peripheral (or side) vision loss and can ultimately result in tunnel vision. Glaucoma can be treated, but has no cure. The damage to the optic nerve from glaucoma cannot be reversed. However, lowering the pressure in the eye can help to prevent further damage to the optic nerve, thus preventing vision loss. Our doctors use state-of-the-art optic disc imaging to monitor the optic nerve over time to assess progression of the disease.
Dry Eyes: Your eyes need tears for comfort, clear vision, and to stay healthy. Dry eyes occur when your eyes do not produce enough tears, or cannot maintain a healthy tear film. There are many things that can cause dry eyes, such as certain diseases, medication, and aging. Our doctors have many techniques to treat dry eye effectively to improve vision and quality of life.
Macular Degeneration: Age-related macular degeneration is damage to the macula, which is the central portion of the retina. Macular degeneration affects the central vision, which results if difficulty seeing fine detail and can make activities of daily living difficult. Vision may initially be blurred or straight lines may appear curved. Our doctors can suggest certain therapeutic strategies to slow progression or improve vision.
