Conditions

Myopia (Nearsightedness)

Nearsighted individuals have problems seeing far into the distance and usually wear glasses or contact lenses. The nearsighted eye is usually longer than a normal eye, and its cornea may also be steeper. Therefore, when light passes through the cornea and lens, it is focused in front of the retina and causes distant images to appear blurred. NeoVision offers several refractive surgery solutions to correct nearly all levels of nearsightedness. + Get Started

Hyperopia (Farsightedness)

Farsighted individuals typically develop problems reading up close. The farsighted eye is usually slightly shorter than a normal eye and may have a flatter cornea. Thus, the light of distant objects focuses behind the retina unless the natural lens can fully compensate. Close up objects require even greater focusing power to be seen clearly and therefore, blur more easily. LASIK surgery, Refractive Lens Exchange and contact lenses are a few of the options available to correct farsightedness.   + Get Started

Astigmatism

Astigmatism is caused by asymmetric steepening of the cornea or natural lens which causes light to be focused unevenly. To individuals with uncorrected astigmatism, objects may look blurry or shadowed. Astigmatism is a common condition that can accompany many forms of refractive error. Astigmatism can be corrected with glasses, contact lenses, corneal relaxing incisions, laser vision correction or special implant lenses.   + Get Started

Presbyopia

Presbyopia is a condition that typically arises in middle aged adults. In children and young adults, the lens inside the eye can easily focus on distant and near objects. With age, the lens loses its ability to focus. Although presbyopia is not completely understood, it is thought that the lens and its supporting structures lose the ability to make the lens longer during close vision effort. Presbyopia can be dealt with in a number of ways. At NeoVision, we offer monovision and multifocal contact lenses, monovision laser vision correction, and new presbyopia correcting implant lenses.    + Get Started

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a common eye disease in older patients in which the optic nerve of the eye is damaged, resulting in vision loss. The progressive loss of optic nerve tissue causes loss of vision. The peripheral vision is usually affected at first. Then as the disease progresses, central vision or even total blindness may occur. Early glaucoma surgery normally involve eye drops that help to lower the eye pressure. Doctor Gipson also uses the SLT Laser to treat glaucoma.  + Get Started

Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration is an age-related disease in which the macula (center part of the retina) deteriorates over time. Macular degeneration does not cause blindness, but greatly affects your central vision. Currently, there aren’t any effective treatments for macular degeneration, but there are methods to help slow its progression over time. If you are over the age of 50 and have noticed that your central vision does not seem as strong as it used to be, call NeoVision to schedule an appointment.    + Get Started

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy occurs when blood vessels in the retina are damaged. At first, diabetic retinopathy may not show any symptoms, but over time it can lead to blindness. Diabetic retinopathy is prevalent in patients who have Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes. It is important to monitor your blood sugar levels to help make sure that you are doing everything in your power to prevent diabetic retinopathy. Currently, there is no cure for diabetic retinopathy, but laser treatments can help delay the onset of the disease. Dr. Gipson will monitor the changes in your retina to make sure you are provided with the right treatment.   + Get Started

Retinal Detachment

Retinal detachment occurs when the retina becomes detached from the choriod. The choriod is a thin blood vessel that provides oxygen and nutrients to the retina. Vision can be permanently lost if it is not quickly reattached. Surgery is the only treatment for a retinal detachment. There are numerous surgical options depending on the size and type of detachment. + Get Started
