Common Eye Problems Near Selah and Treatment at Yakima Vision Center

Eye diseases can seemingly strike out of nowhere, affecting you significantly. One day, your vision seems fine, and then the next; you may barely be able to see out of one or both eyes. What’s happened?

That is sometimes the nature of eye diseases, especially the ones that are asymptomatic. That means you can go about your life without any pain, discomfort, or other symptoms until your vision is almost gone for good. Before it gets to that point, Selah residents should consider visiting Yakima Vision Center.

Vision Afflictions Near Selah, WA

You’re the only one who can prioritize your vision care. If you haven’t already, you should set up an appointment for a vision exam with one of the optometrists here at Yakima Vision Center, such as Dr. Ward or Dr. Farmer.

Your optometrist may find eye diseases (which we’ll discuss more in-depth momentarily) as well as conditions that don’t target the eyes but do impact your health. These include high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes.

Which Eye Diseases Should Selah, WA Residents Seek Treatment For?

Selah residents can count on the staff at Yakima Vision Center to care for their eyes. If you have the following eye diseases, it’s important to seek treatment immediately:

  • Diabetic retinopathy: Only those who already have diabetes can develop diabetic retinopathy. By mismanaging your blood sugar levels or letting them fluctuate too much, the blood vessels in the retinas develop excessive pressure. You may notice symptoms such as lack of color vision, darker areas in the corners of your eyes, blurred vision, and floaters. If not treated, you could lose your vision.
  • Glaucoma: Another condition that robs vision is glaucoma. There are two types of the condition: closed-angle and open-angle glaucoma. With closed angle-glaucoma, you will have vision issues accompanied by nausea and intense pain in the eyes. Medical treatment is necessary. Open-angle glaucoma appears progressively, and patients are often asymptomatic.  

Other Eye Conditions

Here are some other vision conditions that our optometrists treat:

  • Strabismus
  • Eye allergies
  • Amblyopia
  • Conjunctivitis or pink eye
  • Computer vision syndrome
  • Dry eye

While these conditions are a lot less serious than diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma, they are still painful. With red, itchy, irritated eyes, it’s best to see Dr. Ward or Dr. Farmer right away for treatment. Don’t put off your vision health for another day!
