Medical Eye Treatments in Issaquah

At Issaquah Optometric Center, we treat a variety of eye disorders and diseases. Whether your condition is simple or complex, our goal is to help you achieve and maintain healthy eyes and optimal vision. Prior to treatment, Dr. Chang will perform a comprehensive eye exam so he can provide an accurate diagnosis and design a personalized plan that leads to exceptional outcomes. Here’s a brief overview of several of the many conditions we treat.

Foreign Bodies

A foreign body in the eye can lead to redness, itchiness, infection, pain, and even long-term vision problems. You can trust our optometry professionals to safely and effectively remove a foreign body from your eye. Whether it’s dirt, insects, metal shavings, plastic particles, or anything else stuck in your eye, we carefully extract it while ensuring you stay comfortable throughout the entire procedure.

Diabetic Eye Care

Diabetes can harm your eyes and cause diabetic retinopathy, which damages the small blood vessels in your retina or back part of your eye. It also puts you at greater risk for cataracts, glaucoma, and other eye impairments. In addition, diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in the U.S. We help patients with diabetes protect their eyes through careful examination of their retina, complete with digital imaging to detect problems before they become serious enough to affect their eyesight. Afterwards a report will be written that we send to their primary care physician.

Flashes of Light and Floaters

If you notice flashes of light or floaters in your vision, it’s essential that you seek treatment. Oftentimes, these symptoms are part of the normal aging process that occurs within the eye. Occasionally, however, they can be a sign of a serious condition impairing the retina, such as retinal detachments. Our optometry professionals diagnose and treat retinal conditions and know the best retina specialists in the area for referrals needed.

Eye Care for Patients Who Take Hydroxychloroquine

If you take hydroxychloroquine for conditions like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, you are at an increased risk for bull’s eye retinopathy. It causes a ring-shaped or dartboard damage around the macula. We offer comprehensive eye exams to help you prevent bull’s eye retinopathy and maintain healthy eyes.

Other Conditions

In addition, we treat a variety of other eye diseases and disorders including:

  • Cataracts: If you have cataracts, we can evaluate your condition to determine if you’re a candidate for cataract and refractive surgery like LASIK.
  • Amblyopia: We offer pediatric eye exams to children with amblyopia to check for strabismus or vision issues that may lead to permanent vision damage.
  • Uveitis: Our team diagnoses and treats uveitis, which is inflammation of the eye as a result of conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, and Bechet’s disease.
  • Red Eyes: We offer the diagnosis and management of red or bloodshot eyes, which occur when blood vessels in the sclera, the white part of the eyes, swell or expand due to inflammation or irritation from allergies, bacterial, or viral infections.
