Spring Valley Optometry

Your eyes can get infections from bacteria, fungi or viruses and eye infections can occur in different parts of the eye and can affect just one eye or both. At our Spring Valley Optometry office, Glenn Roter, OD offers expert treatment of eye infections using the most advanced instruments such as the Reichert digital vision chart which ensures an accurate eye exam. One common eye infection is Conjunctivitis, also known as pinkeye. Children frequently get it and it is highly contagious. Another common infection is a Stye, a bump on the eyelid that happens when bacteria from your skin gets into the hair follicle of an eyelash. Symptoms of some eye infections may include redness, swelling, itching, discharge, pain, or problems with vision. Treatment depends on the cause of the infection but the contagious nature of these infections must be taken seriously, especially with children playing and at school.

Contact lens wearers are at risk of encountering parasites that invade the eye and cause a serious sight-threatening infection called Acanthamoeba keratitis. This is why our Spring Valley Optometrist, Dr. Roter,  educates their contact lens wearing patients to be aware and observe and practice certain safety tips, such as avoiding swimming while wearing contacts. If you do wear contact lenses when swimming or relaxing in a hot tub, make sure you remove and disinfect your lenses immediately afterward.

Fortunately, most common bacterial eye infections clear up with prompt treatment such as prescription antibiotic eye drops, ointments, and compresses. Many common viral eye infections resolve on their own but in cases of severe viral eye infections, an antiviral eye drop may be prescribed. Some viral eye infections will require careful administration of steroid eye drops, at our Spring Valley optometry practice by Dr. Roter, to reduce related inflammation. You can prevent eye infections by washing your hands before touching your eyes or eyelids and before handling contact lenses.

Depending on the underlying cause of your eye infection, Dr. Roter whose optometry practice is within Walmart Vision Center located in Spring Valley may also prescribe antibiotics or antiviral medications that are taken orally. If your symptoms change or worsen, contact Dr. Roter immediately.

The acclaimed staff of Walmart Vision Center are equipped and trained to provide comprehensive vision assessments and eye health evaluations to patients of all ages, including infants and seniors. Our team of licensed Spring Valley family optometrists are certified in the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of sight-stealing eye diseases that afflict young children, such as amblyopia and strabismus, and older generations, like glaucoma and cataracts. During a comprehensive eye exam with Dr. Glenn Roter, various tests are performed to ensure that if an eye disorder or disease is present, it is detected at the earliest possible stage.

Specific ocular instruments with high magnification are used to evaluate the external and internal structures of your eye, including your retina. Often before you experience any symptoms, our eye doctors can find evidence of diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. Additionally, eye diseases, such as cataract, glaucoma, and macular degeneration are easily detected during this thorough examination of your ocular health. One such test that aids in the diagnosis of glaucoma is the measuring of your intraocular pressure with a non-contact tonometer. This machine gently blows a puff of air toward the eye and determines your eye pressure by the amount of air that rebounds off the eyeball. In general, your intraocular pressure is a good indicator of the overall health of your eye, which makes this a very important test.

Apart from diagnosing eye diseases and disorders, eye examinations with Dr. Glenn Roter at Walmart Vision Center are focused on determining the state of your vision. From visual field screening to objective refractive error measurement, our eye exams test how well you see, how well your eyes work together, and how well your eyes can focus. To solve these vision-related issues, your Spring Valley eye doctor will determine the appropriate optical prescription, which you can fill directly in Walmart Vision Center.

Though the procedures and tests performed in every comprehensive eye exam are similar for both adults and children, your eye exam is tailored to you and your vision. Your eyesight and eye health is unique and are treated as such by the Spring Valley eye doctors at Walmart Vision Center. The process of examining your visual acuity and overall eye health is governed by your medical history, family eye care history, and a host of other vital information about your health. A number of factors, from allergies to medications, can contribute to current or potential vision problems. Dr. Glenn Roter asks questions about your medical history to better understand your lifestyle and what visual problems you are likely to experience. This basis of knowledge can help point your eye exam in the right direction, allowing for the potential of earlier diagnosis and more successful treatments of many common eye diseases, infections, and conditions.
