about us

Symptom Checker

Blurred Vision

Blurred vision refers to a lack of sharpness of vision resulting in the inability to see fine detail. Blurred vision may result from abnormalities such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, presbyopia, or astigmatism that can be improved with corrective lenses (eyeglasses) or it may signal the presence of eye disease.

Symptom Checker

Dry Eyes

Dry eye occurs when the eyes produce too few tears or the tears evaporate too fast. The condition can affect one or both eyes. Lifestyle changes can help, but in severe cases, a person may need medication or treatment.

Symptom Checker

Eyelid Issues

A drooping eyelid is also called ptosis or blepharoptosis. In this condition, the border of the upper eyelid falls to a lower position than normal. In severe cases, the drooping eyelid can cover all or part of the pupil and interfere with vision.

Symptom Checker

Night Driving Problems

As we grow older, our night vision worsens. We have fewer rods (light-sensitive cells in our eyes that distinguish between light and dark) to detect objects in low light and our eyes' lenses become stiffer and cloudier. Other conditions such as astigmatism can also make it difficult to see at night, affecting peripheral vision and depth perception and worsening glare.

Symptom Checker

Halos

Halos are bright circles that surround a light source, like headlights. Glare is light that enters your eye and interferes with your vision. Halos often show up when you're in a dim or dark place. Glare is more likely in the daytime. They're a normal response to bright lights, but deeper problems can also bring them on.

Symptom Checker

Astigmatism

Astigmatism is a common type of refractive error. It means that some part of your eye (either the cornea or lens) is more curved than it should be. This altered eye shape makes your vision blurry. Most cases of astigmatism can be treated with corrective lenses like eyeglasses or contact lenses.

Symptom Checker

Distance Vision Problems

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a very common vision disorder that is usually diagnosed before age 20. Myopia affects your distance vision. You can see objects that are near well, but have trouble viewing objects that are far, such as grocery store aisle markers or road signs.

Symptom Checker

Trouble Reading

Inability to see objects clearly from a close distance can be the result of a few conditions. A common vision condition that causes blurry vision up close is called hyperopia, or farsightedness. Farsightedness is typically the result of a flat cornea or short eyeball, which causes light to focus indirectly on the retina.

Cataract Surgery

Our practice offers a variety of treatment options for cataracts, including cataract surgery, multifocal intraocular lenses, YAG capsulotomy, and more to patients throughout the Minneapolis area. Cataract removal is considered one of the most popular and highly successful surgical procedures. During the surgery, the clouded lens is removed from the eye and replaced with an intraocular lens implant. If you’re ready to see clearly again, give us a call. We are happy to answer any questions you may have surrounding cataract treatment options.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma causes optic nerve damage, most often from high pressure caused by poor drainage of a fluid (aqueous humor), which supplies nutrients to the cornea and lens. The most common form is “acute angle glaucoma,” which accounts for 90% of cases. While glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness, it is fortunately both highly preventable and treatable. Since early detection is key, it is important to schedule an annual, fully-dilated eye exam with your ophthalmologist in order to catch early warning signs of the disease. Don’t wait - visit one of our Minneapolis area locations and start your glaucoma prevention today.

Cosmetic / Oculoplastics

Ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery is a specialized area of ophthalmology that deals with the management of disorders of the eyelids, lacrimal (tear) system, the orbit (the bone cavity surrounding the eye), and the adjacent face. Minnesota Eye Consultants is proud to offer a wide range of oculofacial cosmetic services, including lower eyelid blepharoplasty, BOTOX®, collagen injections (HA fillers), endoscopic forehead lift, and more.
