Persistent dryness, scratchiness, red eyes, and a burning sensation are common symptoms of dry eye syndrome. It is caused by a chronic lack of sufficient lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye. However, if your dry eye symptoms are daily and painful you may have severe dry eye. At this point, there may be damage to the ocular surface and must be rejuvenated.

The office of James Deavers, OD, PA is pleased to offer our patients a new treatment for severe dry eye that heals the surface of your eye and returns it to a normal, healthy state with 29483 contact lenses for dry eyes.

PROKERA, for example, is similar to a contact lens and is made of amniotic tissue, which is known for its natural therapeutic actions and heals your eye faster with less pain, scarring, and inflammation. The amniotic tissue used in our 29384 contact lenses for dry eyes is provided by a tissue bank regulated by the FDA and has passed numerous quality control tests making it safe and effective. Clinical studies have shown PROKERA reduces the sign and symptoms of dry eye, and helps soothe pain, heal the eye, and improve vision. PROKERA is a simple procedure and is easily inserted and removed in our office. Once removed your cornea is rejuvenated so you can see and feel better. In a recent patient survey, 93% of patients with dry eye said they felt better after treatment with PROKERA.

So if you have dry, red, itchy eyes and traditional methods such as eye drops and articifcal tears have been unsuccessful in treating your dry eye syndrome, then 29483 contact lenses for dry eyes from Dr. Deavers may be the solution you’ve been looking for.

Astigmatism Treatment in Dorchester

Astigmatism Treatment in Dorchester

All refractive problems have their root in an improper curvature of your cornea, and so it is with astigmatism. It can cause blurry or wavy vision close up, far away, and at intermediate distances. Fortunately, just as with nearsightedness and farsightedness, eyeglasses or contacts can simply and effectively correct astigmatism. If you experience signs such as headaches, fatigue, eyestrain, and blurry vision, it’s possible that you have astigmatism. To get a definite diagnosis, just call us to schedule an eye exam with Dr. Deavers. Our astigmatism treatment in Dorchester will have you seeing more clearly again, without any of the symptoms associated with astigmatism.

There are various reasons why you may develop astigmatism. Typically, your eye will shaped more like a football than a basketball, as it would be for those without astigmatism. So when light enters your eye, it is refracted more one way than the other. This means you’re focusing on only part of objects instead of the entire object. For some, this condition is inherited, but it can also come about due to working to close to a computer, for example, pressure on your eyelids or cornea, or even improper posture. Regardless of the origin, it is comforting to know that our astigmatism treatment in Dorchester is the best answer.

We recommend a complete eye exam for all of our valued patients once per year. This is because most everyone has some degree of astigmatism. It’s only worth addressing when it begins to cause problems. Your eyes do change from year to year, so even if astigmatism was never an issue before, this may be the time when you could benefit from corrective lenses. And if you already wear eyeglasses or contacts, you may need a more updated prescription to give you the best vision possible. And why settle for anything less? If you’re interested in a more permanent solution, you may want to consider laser surgery. As part of our astigmatism treatment in Dorchester, we will do a pre-screening and co-management for this very successful procedure and answer any questions you may have regarding it. Call us today and arrange your exam.
