Eye Care

At CGH Medical Center, we understand that good vision is priceless. And we know that preserving your vision means getting the eye care you need—by skilled professionals that you can trust.

When you choose CGH Medical Center as your Sterling eye care provider, you'll work with optometrists and ophthalmologists who listen to your concerns and offer you robust solutions that work. Together, we'll protect your sight—no matter what challenges lie ahead.

Routine eye care appointments and vision tests

Good eye health begins with routine care. During an eye care visit, your ophthalmologist can look for signs of disease and illness, and if those are found, you can begin treatment right away.

Our team is adept at performing comprehensive eye exams, and we have trusted pediatric vision doctors available to work with children.

Our eye clinic also offers prescriptions for both contact lenses and glasses should your vision test indicate that your eyes need correcting.

Eye care conditions we treat

Our physicians, surgeons and vision care specialists have years of experience in treating eye conditions such as:

  • Allergic eye muscle twitching.
  • Amblyopia.
  • Cataracts.
  • Diabetic retinopathy.
  • Dry eye.
  • Floaters and flashes.
  • Glaucoma.
  • Macular degeneration.
  • Optic nerve disorders.

Knowing permanent eyesight damage and even blindness are a real concern, we use innovative technologies and treatments to treat eye diseases and vision issues as soon as possible and help you see the possibilities in life. For example, we can perform GDx testing to diagnose glaucoma.

Eye surgery options

Our ophthalmologists can perform a variety of eye surgeries, including:

  • Cataract surgery.
  • Ectropion repair (eyelid rolls out)
  • Entropion repair (eyelid rolls in)
  • Eye injury treatment.
  • Functional blepharoplasty (excess upper eyelid skin)
  • Optic nerve disease treatment.
  • Wedge resection eyelid (eyelid cancer removal)

Your doctor will explain your options carefully and will be there with you as you recover to answer your questions and help boost your healing.
