Ironically, eye diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and conditions caused by diabetes and high blood pressure usually present with no visual symptoms in the early stages. Overtime, though, they can cause permanent damage to our eyes. A comprehensive eye examination checks the internal and external health of your eyes, checks for disease and does a refractive visual analysis to see if a change to your prescription is necessary. For children, a regular eye exam can help determine if the eyes are developing properly. If there is a problem that goes untreated it can lead to learning disorders and vision loss. Protect yourself and your family by making regular preventative eye exams, an important part of your routine health care!

At Price Eye Care, we specialize in the treatment and management of blepharitis.
Blepharitis is an inflammation of the eyelids. It is a common ocular surface disease and often the underlying cause of dry eye. Redness, swelling, styes, cysts, and flaky crusts at the eyelid margin characterize it. Symptoms include scratchy, swollen, tender, and irritated eyes. Blepharitis can be caused by various bacteria and be chronic or acute in presentation. People with skin conditions such as rosacea, acne, and eczema are more prone to have blepharitis flare ups.
Dr. Price Kowaleski will diagnose the specific type and level of blepharitis during an eye exam. Treatment options are abundant and include over the counter remedies, prescription eye drops, and ointments. The newest treatment is called BlephEx™. Blepharitis, in some cases, requires ongoing treatment along with eyelid hygiene to maintain eye comfort and appearance.
Price Eye Care offers BlephEx™ which is the first and only clinician treatment for blepharitis. Over 30% of all patients suffer from some type of blepharitis symptoms. BlephEx™ is a new, in-office procedure that allows Dr. Price Kowaleski to take an active role in treating blepharitis, as well as reducing meibomian gland dysfunction and inflammatory eye disease. BlephEx™ reduces scurf and bacterial debris, the main causes of inflammatory lid disease, and improves the overall health of the eyelid. The BlephEx™ treatment is well tolerated and only takes a few minutes to perform.
