Common Conditions Found During Eye Exams

Century Eye Care provides a variety of eye care services. Our Hawthorne and Gardena clinics are dedicated to helping patients maintain their vision and eye health for years to come. Whether you need a routine eye exam or professional eye surgery, our team is here for you. Here are some of the common conditions we diagnose during eye exams.

Refractive Errors

Refractive errors, like hyperopia and myopia, require glasses or contact lenses. If you are nearsighted or farsighted, we will help you find the right prescription for your glasses or contact lenses. We also offer assistance for refractive errors like astigmatism. Glasses and contact lenses are both great options for treating refractive errors. Our team will help you find the right glasses for your face shape and preferred style. We can also determine whether or not you are a good candidate for LASIK during a routine exam.

Dry Eye

Dry eye is a condition associated with red, itchy eyes. The eyes do not produce the tears necessary to moisten the eyes. Treatment for dry eyes may require prescription eye drops and time away from screens. You may also need to wear special contact lenses or change some aspects of your routine.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a condition caused by pressure building in the eye. Without treatment, glaucoma can lead to permanent vision loss. Our ophthalmologist can diagnose glaucoma in its early stages before symptoms set in during an eye exam. In some cases, surgery may be the only option to relieve the pressure building in your eyes.

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is often associated with diabetes. Symptoms include blurry vision, vision loss, and eye floaters. Often, the best treatment for this condition is to manage your diabetes and ensure that you are not allowing your blood sugar to get too high.

Cataracts

Cataracts is a condition that causes the gradual clouding of the eye’s lens. Our eye doctor can diagnose and monitor cataracts during routine exams.
