Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

Eye Disease Management Includes:

  • Comprehensive eye exam

    Comprehensive eye exams are critical in catching sight-robbing eye diseases that typically don’t show early symptoms.

  • Diagnostic screening

    Certain changes in your eyes can indicate eye conditions. Our optometrists can diagnose the disease and determine the cause of these changes.

  • Treatments and surgeries

    We provide a wide range of treatments, including prescription eye drops and other medication. If needed, we'll refer you to the right specialist for eye surgery.

  • After care and follow-up

    We provide follow-up exams and after-care treatments to help you manage your symptoms and safeguard your vision.


What Are the 4 Most Common Eye Diseases?

  • Diabetic Retinopathy

    If you have diabetes, you should be aware of the risk of diabetic retinopathy. Elevated blood sugar can cause blood vessels in the eye to become inflamed or swell. In the early stages, you may not notice symptoms, but advanced diabetic retinopathy can cause blurred vision or eye inflammation.

    Diabetic retinopathy treatment includes:

    • Prescription medication
    • Laser surgeries
    • Anti-VEGF and steroid injections
    • Vitrectomy
  • Glaucoma

    Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness and often doesn’t show early symptoms. High pressure inside the eye causes glaucoma, and the purpose of glaucoma management is to reduce intraocular pressure.

    Glaucoma treatments include:

    • Prescription eye drops or medications
    • Laser procedures
    • Filtration surgery
    • Drainage tubes
    • Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS)
  • Cataracts

    Cataracts are cloudy formations on the eye lens. They can make your vision blurry and distorted. To restore normal vision, an optometrist will recommend cataract surgery, which involves replacing the cloudy lens with an artificial intraocular lens.

  • Macular Degeneration

    Macular degeneration, or AMD, occurs when the macula or the central part of the retina deteriorates. This results in blurred and distorted vision.

    There are two types of AMD: Dry AMD and Wet AMD.

    Although there isn’t a treatment for dry AMD, lifestyle changes and specific supplements can help prevent further vision deterioration.

    Wet AMD treatments include:

    • Photodynamic therapy
    • Anti-VEGF injections
    • Laser photocoagulation

Distorted or Blurred Vision? Have a family history of serious eye diseases?

Dr. Sharma went the "extra mile" to print a document that I needed to take with me to the DMV. I was... very thankful to her for doing that.🙏🏾 Although I was disappointed to learn that Dr. Z is no longer practicing and Memorial Eye Center took over Eye Trends, my overall experience was great! I am glad I can still come to the same "location" for quality eye care. I look forward to my next visit 👀

When I had to find a new Optometrist, I chose Dr. Meeks and I am so fortunate that I chose her. Dr. ... Meeks is very knowledgeable. I have Multiple Sclerosis and Dr. Meeks spent time checking the inside and back parts of my eyes, such as my corneas and retinas. I feel so confident and well taken care of with Dr. Meeks. Dr. Meeks is very personable and kind. I would recommend Dr. Meeks to everyone I know.

I came to this location solely for an eye exam with Dr. Mimi Duong as she is the best! She's attenti... ve, personable, and incredibly efficient at her job. She didn't make me feel like she was rushing through my exam as most optometrists do in my prior experience. Also, Brittany who worked me up with my preliminary exams is awesome! She's easy to talk to and also great at her job. I will absolutely be back for these two professionals! I technically don't need glasses because I have 20/20 vision, but I'll gladly get another eye exam with Dr. Mimi anytime.

Dr. S was super nice, patient, and thorough in her exam. Made it easy for my nervous 7 year old to ... be brave. The girls that helped with picking out glasses and then getting them adjusted were so nice about everything and quick. Made the whole process easy.
