Glaucoma Treatment

Glaucoma is a degenerative condition that affects the optic nerve. As pressure builds in the eyes, vision loss — starting with peripheral vision — is likely to occur and get progressively worse. Access Eye has multiple tests to check for glaucoma, as well a variety of treatments (non-invasive and surgical) to relieve optical pressure and preserve vision.

Retina Disease Treatment

The retina is a thin layer at the back of the eye that passes information from the optic nerve to the brain. Given its critical role in sight, diseases that affect the retina can lead to blindness if left untreated. Access Eye works closely with area retinal specialists who have an in-depth knowledge of diagnosing and treating serious conditions like diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and retinal tears.

Allergy Testing

Patients who are unsure why they have red, itchy eyes may find answers through allergy testing. A simple skin scratching test measures your body’s reaction to several common allergens found in Virginia. Within 20 minutes, patients learn which allergens they can blame (or not blame) for their red eyes, thereby making a treatment plan much easier.

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Upper blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that rejuvenates the eyes. With age, the upper eyelids can start to droop, creating a hooding effect over the eyeball. Eyelid surgery strengthens the eyelid muscle and removes some of the excess skin and fat that weighs down the eyelid so that it can open more fully again. In addition to making the face look younger, it can also help to expand the field of vision.

Dry Eye Treatment

Patients who want relief from the itchy, burning sensation that accompanies chronic dry eye should seek treatment. The experts at Access Eye can help diagnose the root cause of dry eye and recommend the appropriate treatment to ensure that the eye gets the proper lubrication it needs to avoid irritation. Potential treatments include artificial tears, prescription medication and lacrimal plugs.


At our practice, we’re proud to offer OptiLight by Lumenis to our patients, specially designed to help you find relief from dry eye disease.

ELLEX Eye Floaters Treatment

Floaters are visual disturbances that “float” into the field of vision. While occasional floaters are not problematic, when they show up regularly, patients may consider laser floater treatment. ELLEX laser vitreolysis vaporizes the strands that cause floaters, which are then reabsorbed by the eye. There is no downtime associated with this minimally invasive procedure.
