Eye Condition Treatment

Happy Parents with Child, do they need eye condition treatment?

Eye problems can range from mild to severe; some are chronic, while others may resolve on their own, never to appear again. The articles below will give you a basic understanding of some of these problems and their implications. The cardinal rule is if your eyes don’t look good, feel good or see well, you should visit your doctor.

The following is a short list of common eye conditions we treat, such as astigmatism, dry eye syndrome and presbyopia. For information about cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy please see Eye Disease Management. A more comprehensive list of eye conditions can be found in our Eye Health Library.

Please book an appointment with Dr. Colette Whiting and Dr. Sandra Gillis-Kennedy or if you have any concerns.

  • Commonly called "lazy eye", amblyopia can be treated successfully if detected early enough in childhood.
  • Red, swollen eyelids and crusty debris at the base of your eyelashes are signs you may have blepharitis.
  • Dry eye syndrome (DES) is a chronic condition that develops when your eyes do not produce and maintain enough tears to keep the eye’s surface lubricated.
  • Are you bothered by red, itchy eyes? You may have allergies.
  • Also called nearsightedness, myopia is a very common vision problem, affecting up to one-third of the U.S. population.
