Same-day appointments for eye emergencies
Cataract Surgery. Dr. Wilson has worked hard to stay at the forefront of cataract surgery technology. This outpatient, same-day surgery usually takes about a half an hour and most patients go home within 5 or 10 minutes after the procedure.
Pediatric Ophthalmology. Dr. Wilson has a special interest in pediatric ophthalmology and is experienced in both the medical and surgical treatment of lazy eyes and surgery to correct blocked tear ducts.
- Eye muscle surgery. Eye muscle surgery can help straighten eyes that turn out or cross. This is often done on children, but can be used to help patients at any age. If children develop a lazy eye or crossed or turned out eyes, it is best to treat them as early as possible to avoid longterm problems.
- Diabetic eye care. Patients with diabetes are at risk of developing damage to the blood vessels in the back of the eye. This condition, called diabetic retinopathy, can cause leakage or bleeding in the eye and is a major cause of loss of vision. Often, there will be no symptoms for the patient to notice until it is too late. Fortunately, diabetic retinopathy can be treated if diagnosed in a timely manner. For this reason, patients with diabetes should have a complete eye exam at least once a year. Dr. Wilson is experienced in the treatment of diabetic retinopathy, with both lasers and intraocular injections.
- Glaucoma. Glaucoma is a common condition which normally affects those over 50, but can occur at any age. When a patient has glaucoma, the pressure inside the eye becomes too high and it can push on the nerve in the back of the eye. If undiagnosed, glaucoma can lead to permanent nerve damage and even blindness. There are no symptoms until it is too late, but it can be easily diagnosed with an eye exam.
- Macular Degeneration. Macular degeneration is a very common condition that usually affects patients over the age of 65. It causes the part of the nerve tissue responsible for central vision (the macula) to slowly lose it's abillity to work well. Some patients experience a sudden loss of vision due to bleeding or leakage (termed wet macular degeneration). This can lead to a total loss of central vision and the inability to read or drive. Medication injected into the eye can halt the progression of vision loss and even recover some vision in patients with wet macular degeneration. Dr. Wilson frequently uses this medication to treat his patients in a short office procedure.
- Eyelid surgery. The effects of time or gravity can cause a variety of eyelid abnormalities which can affect the function and comfort of the eye. Dr. Wilson is experienced in surgery to correct most eyelid abnormalities.
Emergencies. If you experience a sudden change in your vision, severe pain or redness, an injury or a sudden onset of floaters or flashing lights, you should be seen urgently. Please let our secretary know of these symptoms and we can see you that day.
