Pterygium Excisions

A Pterygium is a triangle shaped tissue growth in the eye, located in the thin membrane that covers the white area of your eye. While relatively common, the best method of prevention is to protect your eyes from ultraviolet light. It may also be referred to as Surfer’s Eye. During your eye exam, our doctors will determine if surgery is needed for removal.

Diabetic Eye Exams

The eyes are the only place in the body that a doctor can evaluate the blood vessels without cutting.

With diabetes, it is important to be evaluated by an eye doctor yearly to ensure the retinal blood vessels are healthy and no diabetic retinopathy is present. With diabetic retinopathy, the walls of the blood vessels lose their integrity and leak into the retina. In most cases, if the blood vessels in the eyes are compromised, the rest of the body is experiencing the same damage.

Contact lenses

Contact Lenses

Whether you’ve worn contacts in the past, currently wear contacts, or would like to be fit in contacts for the first time:

Dr. Heck provides a full-service contact lens clinic. After a thorough eye examination, Dr. Heck will determine the best type of contact lens for your needs. This is dependent on your occupation, avocation, refractive error, and personal goals. An evaluation of the surface of the eye is required to determine the best lens for each patient. Contact lenses come in the soft or rigid gas permeable form.

Soft contact lenses are most common and come in prescriptions able to correct for astigmatism, high refractive error, and presbyopia.

Rigid gas permeable lenses can be used to correct vision in patients with irregular corneas from cornea transplant surgery, keratoconus, corneal dystrophy, or trauma. They can also be used to relieve symptoms of dry eye.

Ask about a contact lens fitting when making your next appointment.
