Glaucoma Treatment Solutions
Our eye doctors in Battle Creek are trained to look for signs of glaucoma and other eye problems during your general eye exam. If we detect any abnormalities, we’ll suggest an additional exam to map out your visual acuity, affected areas, and intraocular pressure. Following diagnosis, we’ll work to eliminate the eye pressure that’s worsening your vision through eye drops. Depending on the amount of drainage needed, this process may require facilitation through a laser or traditional surgery. The only way to confirm whether or not you have glaucoma is to schedule a routine eye exam or glaucoma assessment with our staff of optometrists and ophthalmologists in Battle Creek, MI. Give our staff a call by phone at (877) 852-8463 to schedule an appointment and discuss the negative consequences of glaucoma
Types of Glaucoma
Glaucoma may sound like a complicated medical issue, but rest assured, there’s no need to worry. The expert ophthalmologists and optometrists at our office in Battle Creek, MI can handle all types of glaucoma. As glaucoma can lead to blindness, we encourage you to come to see us as soon as you suspect it’s something you may be experiencing.
Open-angle glaucoma often manifests as peripheral vision loss. Eventually, it advances into a condition called tunnel vision. As the most highly seen form of glaucoma, the slow build of internal pressure stems from a partially blocked trabecular meshwork. Because of how long it takes, you might not realize you’re losing eyesight for quite some time.
If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms, you may have angle-closure glaucoma:
- Nausea or sickness
- Eye irritation
- Light halos
If your drainage angle gets blocked from a bulging iris, then your eye pressure will increase because of fluid build-up. Angle-closure glaucoma can occur suddenly. If this is the case with you, call our staff of optometrists and ophthalmologists in Battle Creek, MI by phone at (877) 852-8463. Our team will diagnose angle-closure glaucoma and create a vision care solution that meets your needs.
Normal-tension glaucoma can be tough to diagnose initially. That’s because, even though your eye pressure reads as normal, your optic nerve is still impaired. Whether due to sensitivity or blood flow impairment, you must get regular testing done with our team of eye doctors in Battle Creek so that we can look out for any damage to your optic nerve.
Can you believe the color in your eyes could be the reason your vision is declining? Small portions of iris pigment can get clogged in your eye drainage channels and stop fluid from circulating properly. Some levels of exertion, such as jogging, can cause these granules to collect on the trabecular meshwork and spike the amount of pressure within your eye. Our team of ophthalmologists and optometrists offer treatment options for pigmentary glaucoma in Battle Creek, MI. To determine whether or not you have glaucoma, our eye doctors will measure the pressure in your eyes and analyze a variety of other variables.

Macular Hole Surgery
The macula within your retina gives the eye clarity when looking at small details. When a hole starts to form from overstretching, it can alter and blur your centrally focused eyesight. Visit our optometrists and ophthalmologists in Battle Creek to learn more about vitrectomy surgery. During this procedure, we replace the fluid pulling on your macula so your retina can fully heal. Although recovery involves laying face-down for one to seven days, you’ll be beyond satisfied with your restored vision afterward. Contact us online or over the phone at (877) 852-8463 so we can assess your macular health.
Keratoconus Surgery & Eye Care Services
As you get older, your cornea may start to thin out. Should this progress too far, you could suffer from an eye bulge that brings about keratoconus. This could mean that you’ll need corneal transplant surgery down the line to revive your vision. With an experienced team of eye doctors like ours in Battle Creek, you’ll have a wide variety of treatment choices nearby. We could strengthen your prescription lenses early on, and switch you to specially-made, rigid, gas-permeable contact lenses if it should advance. If your keratoconus is far along, we’ll carefully explain what occurs in a corneal transplant or cross-linking procedure so you know exactly what to expect. Share your goals or concerns with us today!
Diabetic Retinopathy Treatments
Diabetic retinopathy, along with other retina conditions, is best treated early on. As it gets later in its stages, diabetic retinopathy will need to be diagnosed by an eye doctor and treated with a laser to seal and halt blood vessel growth. This should stop your problem from worsening, and reverse the effects. This is because our optometrists and ophthalmologists are adept at using this procedure to reduce retina swelling. Put your best foot forward for disease prevention and eye care. Book your next eye exam with our eye doctors in Battle Creek by filling out our appointment form or calling (877) 852-8463.
