Dry Eye

Sometimes more tears are a good thing.

Dry eye is an eye condition where the quality or quantity of your tears isn’t sufficient to keep your eye properly moisturized. It may be a dysfunction of the tear film, the ducts that produce tears, or the glands that create oil that lubricates the eyes. It can be brought on by a variety of factors, including age, gender, the medications you’re taking, and your environment.

Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness for people over the age of 60.

Glaucoma is a condition caused by increased fluid build-up in the front of your eye. As the build-up of fluid increases the pressure in your eye, it damages the optic nerve, which diminishes your vision, worsening over time. Glaucoma is thought to be caused by age-related, lifestyle, and genetic factors.

Seeing halos? Early stage cataracts can be managed.

In the early stages of cataracts, they can be managed with new glasses with a stronger prescription, brighter lighting in dim settings, anti-glare sunglasses to eliminate halos and glare, or even magnifying reading glasses to help improve clarity when text is small.

If these do not help, surgery becomes the only option. At Carrot LASIK & Eye Center, our surgeons are able to customize a cataract surgery for the desired outcomes of each individual patient.

Macular Degeneration

Seeing blurry, dark spots, or do straight lines appear wavy?

Macular degeneration is an eye condition that can lead to significant central, though not peripheral, vision loss for its sufferers. It is often known as age-related macular degeneration, as the condition is very rare in individuals under the age of 55. Like many eye conditions, vision loss is progressive, although early diagnosis and treatment can halt the loss of vision in many people.


Diabetes can lead to vision loss or blindness.

Diabetes can lead to swelling in the macula, which is called diabetic macular edema. Over time, this disease can destroy the sharp vision in this part of the eye, leading to partial vision loss or blindness. Macular edema usually develops in people who already have other signs of diabetic retinopathy.
