Here are a few areas where our patients from Texas City, League City, and Galveston have come to rely on the care we provide.
General Vision Care for Common Vision Issues
General vision care is the most common reason why people go to see their eye doctor, and when they visit, we make sure that not only their vision prescription is right, but that their eyes are healthy too. Our Comprehensive Eye Exam fully checks for any refractive errors and which includes dilating the eyes. For most people, these exams are recommended every two years, and annually for those with diabetes, hypertension, or glaucoma.
Basic Vision Care in Texas City
Basic vision care involves the identification and treatment of various common refractive errors including
- Myopia - Nearsightedness
- Hyperopia - Farsightedness
- Astigmatism - A type of visual distortion resulting from a refractive error
- Presbyopia - Farsightedness brought on by aging, usually after age 40
In most cases, people with these types of refractive errors are treated by being prescribed prescription eye glasses or contact lenses. If only one condition is found, single vision lenses can usually correct the problem, but some may need bifocal lenses or choose to have additional lenses to address sports and safety issues.
Specialty Optometry Care in Texas City
Some patients need a little extra care because they suffer from eye diseases or conditions, or they have undergone surgery to correct these diseases or their vision limitations.
Specialty Contact Lens Prescriptions and Support
Some patients with multiple conditions or with added eye health issues, such as dry eye, may need specialty contacts in order to keep their vision corrected. At Texas City Eye Consultants, we look closely at what treatment options are needed in order to provide the best eye care service possible.
Pre and Post Op Care
At Texas City Eye Consultants, we don't perform eye surgeries, but we do offer referrals as well as important pre-op and post op care for various eye surgeries including
- LASIK and other refractive surgeries
- Intraocular Lens Replacements
- Strabismus Surgery
Pediatric Eye Care in Texas City
Finding good pediatric eye care in Texas City and nearby cities such as Galveston and League City isn't always easy, but it is important. That's one of the reasons why Texas City Eye Consultants makes things easier by providing pediatric optometry services in the same location where adult services are available. When we check a child's eyes we look for signs of various common childhood eye problems including
- Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)
- Strabismus (Eye Turn Adult and Pediatric)
- Retinopathy of Prematurity
- Congenital Cataracts
In order to assure that eyes are developing as they should, children should see an eye doctor when they are six months old, and have followed up visits when they are three years old and six years old -- even if no eye health or vision issues were found in a previous exam. With the fast development of early childhood, things can potentially change quickly, and at Texas City Eye Consultants we are committed to staying on top of any potential issues in order to help provide the best treatment options possible if they are needed.
