Surgical Services

Cataracts

A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that affects vision. The lens lies behind the iris and the pupi and works much like a camera lens, focusing light onto the retina at the back of the eye where an image is recorded. Read More

Eyelid Surgery

The upper and lower eyelids help protect the eye in numerous ways. When you blink, your eyelids spread moisture over your eyes. Blinking also helps move dirt or other particles off the surface of the eye. Read More

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a group of common eye conditions that result in damage to the optic nerve.The causes vary, but glaucoma is most commonly associated with higher than normal pressure within the eye or a ?normal? pressure that is too high for the health of an individual?s optic nerve. Read More

Laser Surgery

We offer a number of different laser procedures including the treatment of secondary cataract, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and retinal tears. Read More

Lens Implants

During cataract surgery we replace the cloudy lens of the eye with an artificial lens implant, restoring your eye?s inherent potential for vision. This technology, called an intraocular lens implant (IOL) has been successfully used for over thirty years. Read More

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy affects blood vessels in the light-sensitive tissue called the retina that lines the back of the eye. It is the most common cause of vision loss among people with diabetes? Read More

Dry Eye

Dry eye is one of the most common complaints seen in eye doctors? offices today. Tears are necessary for overall eye health and clear vision. They also help protect the eye from bacterial and other types of infections. Read More

Eye Injury and Urgent Care

We provide evaluation and management of all eye injuries including corneal abrasions, foreign bodies, lacerations, hyphema and bleeding or bruising. In addition, we are pleased to provide urgent care for a variety of conditions including eye pain, eye infections, corneal ulcers, uveitis, flashes & floaters, vision loss and ocular migraines. Read More

Floaters

Floaters refer to a variety of visual abnormalities, often seen as little ?cobwebs? or specks that appear to move or float about in your field of vision. Floaters occur when the vitreous, a gel-like substance that fills most of the eye slowly shrinks. Read More

Macular Degeneration

The macula is the most sensitive part of the retina and is made up of millions of light-sensing cells that provide sharp, central vision. Macular degeneration (also called AMD for age-related macular degeneration) is a common chronic eye disease and a leading cause of vision loss among people over the age of 50. Read More

Optical Services

Eye Exams

Periodic eye examinations are an important part of preventative health care. Many serious eye and vision problems have no obvious signs or symptoms in the early stages. Read More

Eye Glasses

Glasses are used to correct refractive errors and also restore the focusing ability lost with age. Siskiyou Eye Center takes pride in our service, selection and quality. Read More

Contacts

Contact lenses are a great alternative to glasses for correcting many vision problems. Prior to getting contact lenses, a comprehensive eye exam will determine the prescription that gives you the best distance and near vision. Read More

Astigmatism

The cornea of a normal eye is round like a basketball. All light passing through the eye is refracted – or bent – equally, resulting in a clear image. Read More

Farsightedness

Farsightedness (hyperopia) is a common type of vision problem where distant objects are generally seen more clearly than objects that are near. Farsightedness occurs when the shape of the eye prevents incoming light from focusing on the retina. Read More

Nearsightedness

Nearsightedness (myopia) is a common type of vision problem where nearby objects are seen clearly, but distant objects appear blurry. Nearsightedness occurs when the shape of the eye prevents incoming light from focusing on the retina. Read More

Presbyopia

Presbyopia is a normal part of the aging process and typically starts in your 40s. Until we reach our 40s, the lens of the eye is soft and flexible, allowing the eye to focus on distant and near objects seamlessly and without effort. Read More
