Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

Eye Disease Management Includes:

  • Comprehensive eye exam

    Comprehensive eye exams are critical in catching sight-robbing eye diseases that typically don’t show early symptoms.

  • Diagnostic screening

    Certain changes in your eyes can indicate eye conditions. Our optometrists can diagnose the disease and determine the cause of these changes.

  • Treatments and surgeries

    We provide a wide range of treatments, including prescription eye drops and other medication. If needed, we'll refer you to the right specialist for eye surgery.

  • After care and follow-up

    We provide follow-up exams and after-care treatments to help you manage your symptoms and safeguard your vision.


What Are the 4 Most Common Eye Diseases?

  • Diabetic Retinopathy

    If you have diabetes, you should be aware of the risk of diabetic retinopathy. Elevated blood sugar can cause blood vessels in the eye to become inflamed or swell. In the early stages, you may not notice symptoms, but advanced diabetic retinopathy can cause blurred vision or eye inflammation.

    Diabetic retinopathy treatment includes:

    • Prescription medication
    • Laser surgeries
    • Anti-VEGF and steroid injections
    • Vitrectomy
  • Glaucoma

    Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness and often doesn’t show early symptoms. High pressure inside the eye causes glaucoma, and the purpose of glaucoma management is to reduce intraocular pressure.

    Glaucoma treatments include:

    • Prescription eye drops or medications
    • Laser procedures
    • Filtration surgery
    • Drainage tubes
    • Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS)
  • Cataracts

    Cataracts are cloudy formations on the eye lens. They can make your vision blurry and distorted. To restore normal vision, an optometrist will recommend cataract surgery, which involves replacing the cloudy lens with an artificial intraocular lens.

  • Macular Degeneration

    Macular degeneration, or AMD, occurs when the macula or the central part of the retina deteriorates. This results in blurred and distorted vision.

    There are two types of AMD: Dry AMD and Wet AMD.

    Although there isn’t a treatment for dry AMD, lifestyle changes and specific supplements can help prevent further vision deterioration.

    Wet AMD treatments include:

    • Photodynamic therapy
    • Anti-VEGF injections
    • Laser photocoagulation

Distorted or Blurred Vision? Have a family history of serious eye diseases?

Schedule an eye exam at Omni Vision - Westloop in Far West Side. Early diagnosis and treatment can help preserve eye health and prevent vision loss.

I went in to look for eye glasses. Lynette, who stated she worked at the other store normally, was e... xtremely professional, friendly. I had the best experience compare to all the other eye glass place in and out of town. I like to sleep on decisions like this because I do not have insurance . It will cost close to $1,000 for my prescription so I like take my time. But, if I decide to purchase my glasses there, I hope she will be available. Although the rest of the staff was awesome too.

The Doctor and staff were awesome I couldn't have ask for better service. The only thing I wish they... had was a larger selection of eye wear to choose from. But it's not a deal breaker.

The experience me and my mom had was more that expected. The front staff Macy was very knowledgeable... about our insurance and the coverage we had. My mom wasn’t sure but she took care of our insurance needs. The cool thing about it was the photos we took of our eyes. Everyone was involved with our whole visit. The manager talked to us and made sure that we were happy with everything from check in to checkout she even opened the door for us when we left!!! We are anxious to get our glasses
- Sep. 05, 2022
Staff is friendly and welcoming. Short wait times. Looks can be deceiving, seems like only a few o... ptions for glasses however there are many options in easily accessible display drawers. Staff went above and beyond to make sure I picked glasses I loved. Dr was great! He was friendly and explained everything while doing it. Answered all my questions. Gave me options to ensure I made best decision.
