Koch Eye Associates provides comprehensive eye exams and cutting-edge diagnostics to manage and treat a full range of common visual impairments.

Myopia (also known as nearsightedness) is a visual impairment that causes difficulty for people in seeing things that are far away from the eyes.

Farsightedness (hyperopia) refers to the inability to clearly see things that are very close to the eyes while still being able to see far away.

Presbyopia is the age-related loss of near vision. It is very common and occurs naturally in most men and women beginning around the age of 40.

Amblyopia, or lazy eye, is usually defined as poor vision in one eye that causes that eye to wander or causes the eyes to not work together properly.

Astigmatism is very common and is caused when either the cornea or lens has an irregular shape, preventing light from hitting the retina properly.

At Koch Eye Associates, our experienced team of specialists treats a multitude of common eye infections, including styes, pink eye, and blepharitis.

Dry eye syndrome is characterized by chronic dryness, itchiness, and severe discomfort resulting from eyes that cannot properly self-lubricate.

Seasonal allergies affect millions of individuals, causing redness, swelling, itching, burning, and watering of the eyes and eyelids during flare-ups.

Low vision is a very common condition that includes any significant vision impairment that is unresponsive to any method of correction or improvement.

Prescription glasses and contact lenses are the most common solutions for patients with vision impairments due to myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.

Refractive surgery addresses common refractive vision errors using advanced laser vision correction technology to change the shape of the cornea.

LASIK is a very commonly performed refractive correction procedure in which the cornea is reshaped via laser technology to improve or correct vision.

PRK

In photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), the outer corneal layer is removed and the inner tissue is reshaped. The outer layer grows back within days.

Glaucoma is damage to the optic nerve that can lead to vision loss. It is caused by increased pressure on the eye, usually from excess fluid buildup.

Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) refers to many types of treatment utilizing microscopic tools and lasers to control or manage glaucoma.

The Ahmed tube shunt is a surgical implant that drains excess fluid from the eye in order to decrease internal eye pressure in glaucoma patients.

A glaucoma trabeculectomy is the creation of a tiny hole in the eye wall, covered by a very thin flap, that allows excess fluid to drain from the eye.

Cataracts, or the age-related clouding of the eye lenses, typically develop after the age of 40 and are treated with glasses or surgical techniques.

In laser cataract surgery, extremely precise digital and laser technologies are used to make the incisions before removing and replacing the cataract.

In traditional cataract surgery, a blade is used to incise the cornea, and the cataract (cloudy lens) is removed and replaced with an artificial lens.

IOLs, or intraocular lenses, are available in many versions and are used as the artificial replacement lenses for cataract removal surgery patients.

In a YAG laser capsulotomy, a tiny hole is created in the back of the capsule that holds the eye lens to clear clouded vision after cataracts surgery.

CustomFlex irises are designed to help patients suffering from aniridia or iris trauma and are the first U.S. FDA-approved iris prostheses (2018).

Flashes and floaters, caused by age-related thickening and shrinking of the vitreous fluid, can look like flashes of light and tiny black "squiggles."

Retinal tears and detachments are usually due to the age-related shrinkage of the eye's vitreous fluid. Floaters and flashes are common symptoms.

Diabetic retinopathy occurs when long-term high blood sugar causes damage to the retinal blood vessels of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetic patients.

Macular degeneration is extremely common and refers to the deterioration of the central part of the retina, which causes damage to central vision.

Anti-VEGF retinal injections are effective treatments for certain retinal conditions caused by the abnormal growth of blood vessels behind the retina.

AREDS and AREDS2 are vision vitamin supplements that have been shown to delay the advancement of age-related macular degeneration to later stages.

Retinal laser surgery is used to seal up retinal damage or leaking blood vessels caused by conditions like tears and age-related macular degeneration.

A vitrectomy is a very delicate surgery that includes the removal of the vitreous eye fluid in order to have better access to any retinal damage.

The Koch Eye Associates team is experienced in the treatment of multiple corneal diseases and disorders and offers many advanced treatment options.

Keratoconus, a progressive corneal disease, causes the shape of the cornea to become oblong instead of round, creating refractive errors in vision.

Koch Eye Associates has many experienced specialty lens experts who guide our keratoconus patients to the best contact lens options for their vision.
