Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery

Glaucoma is a serious eye condition, and at Westlake Eye Specialists, we understand the importance of early diagnosis and treatment. That’s why we offer advanced minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) options.

Glaucoma is a condition that damages the optic nerve, often due to increased pressure in the eye. If left untreated, glaucoma can lead to permanent vision loss. 

MIGS is an advanced treatment method that involves creating a tiny opening in the eye to allow excess fluid to drain, reducing pressure and preventing further damage to the optic nerve. Our experienced ophthalmologists use state-of-the-art MIGS techniques and technology to provide our patients with the most advanced glaucoma treatment options. 

Our team will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets your individual needs and goals. At Westlake Eye Specialists, we’re committed to providing our patients with the highest level of care and advanced treatment options. 

If you have been diagnosed with glaucoma, or are experiencing symptoms such as blurred vision or eye pain, don’t hesitate to contact us today to schedule your consultation and learn more about our advanced MIGS treatment options.

Dry Eye Treatment

Dry eye is a common eye condition that can cause discomfort, irritation, and vision problems. At Westlake Eye Specialists, we provide personalized and compassionate care to each patient who seeks treatment for dry eye.

We conduct a comprehensive eye exam to determine the underlying cause of the condition, such as evaluating tear production, tear quality, and eye health. Based on the exam results, we develop a customized treatment plan that suits the patient’s unique needs. 

Our treatments may include prescription eye drops to reduce inflammation, increase tear production, and improve tear quality. We may also insert tiny plugs into the tear ducts to conserve tears on the eye surface and prevent them from draining too quickly.

In addition, we offer LipiFlow, an innovative treatment that uses heat and pressure to unclog meibomian glands in the eyelids and improve the quality of tears. Another advanced treatment method available at Westlake Eye Specialists is IPL. 

IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light therapy, is a non-invasive treatment that targets the root cause of dry eye by reducing inflammation and stimulating the meibomian glands to produce healthy oils. 

At Westlake Eye Specialists, we strive to provide the highest level of care possible by utilizing the latest dry eye treatment technology and exploring new ways to improve your experience. Whether the symptoms are mild or severe, we are dedicated to finding solutions to help alleviate discomfort and restore eye health.
