Pasadena Eye Associates exists to provide quality eye care to our patients at an affordable cost. From a simple eye exam to complex retinal surgery, our goal is to maximize visual function by optimizing eye health. Pasadena Eye Associates is a total eye care center designed to meet all of your family's eye care needs. Services provided by Pasadena Eye Associates include the following:
Comprehensive Eye Exams
Comprehensive eye examinations should be a regular part of every person's healthcare routine. They are an important tool in eye health by detecting and preventing eye diseases and evaluating the overall health of the patient. Some diseases, such as glaucoma, develop gradually without symptoms of pain or vision loss, so patients may not notice that anything is wrong until significant and irreversible damage has been done. Early detection of eye diseases allows for a choice of treatment options and a reduced risk of permanent damage. Our practice tests vision and provides prescriptions for eyeglasses and contact lenses when necessary. We use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to evaluate and maintain your overall eye health. LEARN MORE.
According to The American Optometric Association, infants should have their first comprehensive eye examination at the age of 6 months. Any additional eye examinations should be scheduled according to the child's condition and the recommendations of the physician.
Comprehensive eye exams are essential in the diagnosis and treatment of vision problems, injury and disease. Early detection allows for treatment to begin before the child experiences difficulties in school due to poor vision, or before any permanent damage occurs. LEARN MORE.
Cataract Evaluation and Surgery
Just because one is diagnosed as having cataracts doesn't mean that their removal is an immediate necessity. However, if a cataract is keeping you from doing the things you like or need to do, the only treatment for cataracts is surgical intervention. The latest techniques in microsurgery and technology in intra-ocular lens implants have enabled us to restore eyesight in cataract patients easier and more successfully than ever before. LEARN MORE.
Glaucoma Evaluation and Treatment
Glaucoma is a serious eye disorder where the pressure of the fluid in the eye is so abnormally high that can cause damage or blindness if left untreated. While treatment is often successful with the use of topical eye drops, other options are now available including the use of special lasers and surgery. LEARN MORE.
Retinal Evaluation and Treatment
The retina is a light-sensitive membrane which lines the inner back of the eye. There are many conditions that may either seriously affect the vision or may lead to blindness. The key to preservation of vision lies with the early detection of abnormalities. Diabetics are at a greater risk for retinal disorders and should be evaluated regularly by an eye care professional. LEARN MORE.
Dry eye is a common condition that occurs when the eyes are insufficiently moisturized, leading to itching, redness and pain from dry spots on the surface of the eye. The eyes may become dry and irritated because the tear ducts don't produce enough tears, or because of a chemical imbalance in the tears. LEARN MORE.
We provide evaluation and management of medical diseases such as ocular infections, cataracts, glaucoma and retinal problems. Work-related injuries including chemical burns or irritants are seen on a priority basis.
RESTOR® IOL Lens
AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL is an intraocular lens that provides a full range of vision for patients after cataract surgery. By distributing light on the retina in such a way that images at various distances are clearly perceived, it providing multifocal visual clarity. LEARN MORE.
Laser Vision Correction / LASIK
The newest, most advanced laser corrective eye procedure is LASIK (Laser Assisted in-Situ Keratomileusis) and it is the procedure of choice among refractive surgeons worldwide. This is the preferred method of laser vision correction utilized by the doctors at Pasadena Eye Associates. We offer FREE consultations for the LASIK procedure. LEARN MORE.
WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser
The WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser procedure uses advanced wavefront technology to compensate for the curvature of the cornea and preserve its shape, which effectively reduces side effects such as poor night vision, glare and halos. Each procedure is customized for the refraction and corneal curvature of each patient. LEARN MORE.
The IntraLase method provides a blade-free approach to laser vision correction. IntraLase uses laser energy to create a customized flap based on the shape of the eye, providing the patient with the best possible outcome. LEARN MORE.
Optomap® Retinal Exam
The Optomap® retinal exam is a non-invasive diagnostic procedure that obtains a panoramic view of the retina, located at the back of the eye. With the optomap retinal exam, the doctor is able to see 80 percent of the retina and review the results for early signs of retinal abnormalities. The digital image is available on screen immediately for doctor and patient to review together. LEARN MORE.
As a person grows older, the skin loses some of its elasticity, becoming droopy and creased. Wrinkled and drooping skin which has been obstructing vision may be removed from the upper and lower eyelids under local anesthesia and is usually covered as a medical rather than a cosmetic procedure. LEARN MORE.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a highly purified protein injected into the skin to relax the muscles that cause some kinds of wrinkles. While BOTOX Cosmetic can treat certain medical conditions, such as excessive sweating, it is most commonly used for cosmetic purposes, primarily to reduce wrinkles on the face and neck. LEARN MORE.
JUVÉDERM® XC is a new U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved version of the effective JUVÉDERM dermal filler. Like the original JUVÉDERM, JUVÉDERM XC is a smooth-consistency gel that, when injected, restores volume to the skin, and smooths away moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds. JUVÉDERM XC, however, contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to minimize the mild discomfort sometimes caused by the injections. LEARN MORE
