Common Eye Conditions and Treatment in Overland, Missouri

Eye problems can range from mild to severe; some are chronic, while others may resolve on their own, never to appear again. The cardinal rule is if your eyes don't look good, feel good or see well, you should visit your optometrist.

The following is a short list of common eye conditions we treat, such as astigmatism, dry eye syndrome and presbyopia. For information about cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy please see Eye Disease Management. A more comprehensive list of eye conditions can be found in our Eye Health Library.

For any questions or concerns, please book an appointment with our eye doctor.
