Lasik Surgery MontanaNovember is Diabetic Eye Disease month. Vision is our passion here at The Eye Clinic—especially preventing vision loss. One of the complications of diabetes is diabetic retinopathy. Retinopathy is a disease of the retina that can lead to poor vision and even blindness. Since most of the time, there are no symptoms of retinopathy until it begins to affect your vision, the best way to prevent vision loss is to have a complete eye exam every year. Both Dr. LaGreca and Dr. Erpenbach work closely with primary care physicians to ensure our diabetic patients are monitored carefully. For more information on diabetic retinopathy, symptoms, and treatments, please check our website.

Eye Lasik Center MontanaWith cooler weather comes drier air in our homes due to our heaters. If you suffer from seasonal allergies or dry eyes, contact our doctors to find out which drops will work best for you. This is more than just a comfort issue. The risk of infection increases when the tear film is deficient. Please tell our doctors if you are experiencing itchy or burning or watering eyes. They will prescribe a treatment program that will not only make you more comfortable, but healthier too.
