Vision Conditions Treated at Our Eye Health Center

Our team of professionals has years of experience working with eyes of all ages and a range of different conditions. We work hard to make even the most complex vision issues easy to understand — when it comes to your eye health, we’ll never leave you in the dark!

Myopia

Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a common vision condition caused by a misshapen eye that doesn’t allow light to properly focus on the retina. Patients with myopia experience blurry vision when viewing objects at a distance. We can detect myopia early and offer a variety of methods, including standard corrective eyewear and Ortho-k lenses, to correct the underlying issue.


Myopia

Hyperopia

Also known as farsightedness, hyperopia is the opposite of myopia, where patients see objects farther away more clearly than those up close. With hyperopia, light is focused incorrectly because the cornea isn’t curving enough. If you’re affected by hyperopia, we have a huge eyewear selection to choose from to help correct your vision.


Hyperopia

Presbyopia

A condition common with age, presbyopia is the gradual loss of the eye’s ability to see clearly at close distances. This occurs due to the eye’s lens becoming more rigid as we get older. We can correct your vision using eyeglasses, readers, and other corrective eyewear.


Presbyopia

Spots & Floaters

Small, cloudy particles can appear in a person’s line of sight as the eye’s vitreous fluid deteriorates over time. Most spots are not harmful, but they can sometimes limit vision or indicate a more serious issue like a torn or detached retina — which we can quickly diagnose and start managing.


Floaters

Crossed Eyes

Crossed eyes, also known as strabismus, is when nerve or muscle dysfunction causes misalignment of the eyes. Strabismus usually develops during childhood, which is why bringing your child in for pediatric eye exams on an annual basis is critical.


Crossed eyes

Lazy Eye

When your brain starts ignoring or deprioritizing vision from one of your eyes, it’s called amblyopia, or lazy eye. Amblyopia typically develops before the age of six, and treatment is most effective when the condition is identified and addressed while the eyes are still developing.


Lazy Eye

Eye Coordination

Eye coordination is the ability for your eyes to stay aligned and work together. This is a skill that needs to be developed, usually at a young age, and helps with everyday tasks including reading and driving. Our eye doctors can help develop a plan for getting your eye coordination back on track.


Eye Coordination

Color Deficiency

Often called “color blindness”, color deficiency is when the eyes are unable to distinguish between certain colors. This condition is usually inherited, occurs more often in males, and can go unnoticed without being tested.

Eye Diseases We Diagnose at Our Family Eye Health Offices

Your vision is incredibly important, and we understand that it can be scary to discuss eye diseases. That’s why we go the extra mile to remove all the fear from the equation at our eye health centers.

We make our diagnoses and explanations clear, so patients can easily navigate what is happening with their eyes and understand how we approach each condition. Our experience and advanced technology mean that we can detect potentially severe eye conditions before they cause real damage to your vision and overall eye health.

Cataracts

Cataracts

A cataract is an extremely common condition in which the eye’s natural lens begins to cloud, which impairs vision and can eventually cause blindness. The only way to truly correct the vision is by replacing the cataracts with artificial new lenses through surgery, though eyewear can help in early stages.


Glaucoma

Glaucoma

The name for a group of conditions that affect the eye’s optic nerve, glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in the U.S. Caused by increased pressure in the eye, glaucoma can cause vision loss as it progresses. We offer management and can connect you to dedicated professionals in the area.


Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is a serious diabetes complication that can threaten vision when the blood vessels near the retina are irregular. The damaged vessels can lead to cloudy or blurred vision, but this condition can be managed effectively if identified early.


Macular Degeneration

Macular Degeneration

The leading cause of severe vision loss in adults over the age of 50, macular degeneration affects a part of your inner eye called the macula, and can cause you to lose your central vision. It has two types, which can both cause blurry, distorted vision and eventually lead to blindness if not treated.


Conjunctivitis

Conjunctivitis

Also known as pink eye, conjunctivitis has three main types: allergic, infectious, and chemical. Symptoms — and the approach to treatment — vary with the causes of a specific case, but usually include itching, redness, and sometimes runny discharge. We personalize treatment to the specific cause.


Dry Eye

Dry Eye

Dry eye disease is a common but uncomfortable condition marked by a dysfunction in tear production that leads to dry, itchy, irritated, and bloodshot eyes. At Li & Liao, our treatments address its root causes and provide lasting relief.


Ocular Hypertension

Ocular Hypertension

Ocular hypertension is a condition when the pressure in the eyes is above the normal range without any detectable change in vision. While there’s no cure, we can monitor the condition and take steps necessary to decrease the risk of damage.


Anterior Uveitis

Anterior Uveitis

An inflammation of the uvea, the middle layer of the eye, anterior uveitis can result from eye trauma or health issues such as rheumatoid arthritis. This leads to red and sore eyes, blurred vision, and increased light sensitivity, and responds to specialized treatment.


Retinitis Pigmentosa

Retinitis Pigmentosa

Retinitis Pigmentosa is a group of inherited diseases that impact the back of the eye, specifically rods and cones in the retina that are light-sensitive. The first sign of this condition is typically difficulty seeing at night, followed by a slow loss of peripheral (side) vision. The best defense is early prevention.


Blepharitis

Blepharitis

Blepharitis is an inflammation of the eyelids, sometimes marked a dandruff-like substance on the eyelashes. Often a component of dry eye, the symptoms of blepharitis include an itchy or burning sensation, increased tearing, and red, swollen eyelids. There are treatments for any of its causes.


Keratoconus

Keratoconus

The cornea becomes thin and bulges out into a cone shape, leading to blurry, distorted vision, sensitivity to light and glare, and greater risk of eye injury. Severe cases may need surgery, but keratoconus can usually be adjusted for with the help of corrective eyewear.


Iritis

Iritis

Iritis is when the iris (the colored part of the eye) becomes swollen and inflamed. It usually develops suddenly, and symptoms include red eyes, discomfort, light sensitivity, and some vision impairment, and it can lead to more severe issues. Specialty treatment can help bring it under control.

“I’ve been coming here to Dr. Li and Dr. Liao for almost 20 years with zero bad experiences for contacts and glasses. Wouldn’t trust any place else. I like that you can make appointment online in a zip. Everyone is friendly and knowledgeable and they take the time to make sure everything is right by being transparent by showing you your retinal images, explaining whats going on to the detail scientifically with your vision so you understand. I like having the retinal imaging done that doesn’t require eye drops and takes a few seconds, pretty cool tech. Huge glasses selection on major brands. They have social distancing, air filter, and uv disinfection for trying on glasses which I thought was pretty cool. All the assistants super friendly as well so overall positive atmosphere and highly recommended.”
