Imagine getting better vision while you sleep. That's the idea of Orthokeratology (Ortho-K for short). As an alternative to LASIK surgery, Ortho-K gently reshapes your cornea while you sleep so you can enjoy your active day without glasses, regular contacts, or the need for surgery. The American Glaucoma Society states that there are at least 3 million Americans who suffer from glaucoma and it is the leading cause of worldwide preventable blindness. Kirkwood Eye Center has invested in the most advanced equipment available to accurately diagnose and manage this treatable disease.
At Kirkwood Eye Center we are here to help with ALL of your emergency eye needs. We encourage all of our current and future patients to begin at our office for all emergency eye care as we are uniquely equipped as eye doctors to accurately and quickly diagnose, treat, and triage your condition. Baylor ER currently has no optometrist or ophthalmologist on call. If you begin there, you will typically be triaged to an optometrist/ophthalmologist group in Hurst. So if you are in need of emergency eye care, why not start with the physicians who specialize in the eyes?
Blepharitis is one of the more common ocular disorders we see on a day-in-and-day-out basis at Kirkwood Eye Center. While we diagnose it daily, a majority of the time when we mention to a patient that they are suffering from this condition, they commonly tell us they have never heard that before. We have found it to be one of the most under-diagnosed ocular conditions. Blepharitis are tiny collarettes of bacterial excretion (staphylococcus) that sit on the eyelid margin. Left untreated, this can progress and lead to chalazions (styes), corneal ulcers, and meibomian gland atrophy and lid loss.
Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness in the United States population in people under the age of 60. The prevalence of diabetes is approximately 29 million or 9.3% of the U.S. and most concerning, around 8 million of those are undiagnosed. According to the American Diabetic Association, as of 2012 there are 86 million Americans who are classified as pre-diabetics. Pre-diabetes means your glucose levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be classified as diabetes. Without treatment, pre-diabetics are likely to progress onto diabetes within 10 years.
Kirkwood Eye Center isn't just here to help you see better-we can help you look better, too! Most women desire longer, thicker eyelashes, and many have turned to eyelash extensions. While eyelash extensions look great, they are expensive to maintain and often result in further thinning of lashes over time due to traction alopecia (loss of lashes due to the pulling and weight of the extensions on the natural lash). We have also treated many patients with allergic reactions or irrigation from the adhesive use to apply the extensions.
Enjoy clear vision during the day without the hassle and inconvenience of glasses, soft contacts, or the risks of surgery. Ortho-K has been proven both safe and effective by the FDA and multiplestudies. Stop worrying about whether your eyes or your child's eyes will get worse, and control their myopia. Ortho-K provides patients and parents with the results they want. Myopia control, corneal reshaping, orthokeratology, Ortho-K, and corneal refractive therapy are all names for the same non-surgical treatment aimed at clear vision without glasses or daytime contacts while controlling myopic degeneration.
At Kirkwood Eye Center, we strive to provide comprehensive, exceptional eye care for the whole family. The doctors at Kirkwood Eye Center recommend annual medical eye examinations to not only help you see as clearly as possible but, more importantly, to maintain the health of your eyes and your vision for years to come. Some eye diseases cause symptoms that alert you that something is wrong- symptoms such as blurred vision, eye pain, red eyes, floaters, or flashing lights. Unfortunately, there are also serious, vision-threatening problems that have no warning signs.
At Kirkwood Eye Center, our goal is to provide parents the support they need to maximize their child's visual development. Eye exams for children are incredibly important, and we're here to help you along the way! Routine exams allow us to catch vision problems early on, preventing possible vision loss in the future.
