Do not hesitate to book an appointment at Pacific Eye Clinic in Southport. We serve clients from all over the Gold Coast and surrounding areas.
Strabismus Muscle Disorder
This disorder often causes the eyes to point in different directions and is especially common in young children. Pacific Eye Clinic provides vision therapy, eye muscle surgery, eyeglasses and prism glasses to correct strabismus before it becomes a bigger issue.
If caught early, the condition can usually be rectified, with vision returning to normal.
Lacrimal Sac Infections
Also known as Dacryocystitis, this refers to an infection of the tear duct or lacrimal sac and is known to cause pain, swelling and a gooey discharge. You may also notice a fever accompanied by a constantly watering eye.
Whether your condition is acute or chronic, we provide diagnostic examinations and treatment, usually in the form of eye drops and antibiotics.
Because eyelids are exposed to sunlight and other environmental factors, they are susceptible to cancer like any other part of the body. Tumours, both benign and malignant, are known to occur on the eyelid, with several common types being nevus, papilloma, cysts, basal cell carcinoma and sebaceous gland carcinoma.
Often, as these tumours grow, they will affect your eyesight and do harm to the eye in general. If you suspect you are suffering from an eyelid tumour, we will examine the area, take a biopsy and provide treatment, including surgery if needed. The sooner an issue like this is seen to, the better.
Nasolacrimal Duct Blockage
Otherwise known as a blocked tear duct, Nasolacrimal Duct Blockages cause your eye to become water, irritated and sometimes infected. Most common in newborns, this issue is often correctable but should be seen to promptly if the following symptoms are shown:
Blocked tear ducts are very treatable. Pacific Eye Clinic will provide a comprehensive examination of your eye, tailoring a treatment plan to suit your needs.
Pterygium & corneal disease treatment
Pterygium is a benign growth of tissue over the cornea from the white of the eye (conjunctiva) which can lead to irritation and vision loss of not treated.
Treatment is the surgical removal of the pterygium followed by an autoconjunctival graft performed under anaesthesia in the operating theatre. Dr Wei has over 25 years experience in treating pterygia and has a recurrence rate of less 1%.
Keratoconus & UV crosslinking treatment
Keratoconus is a degenerative condition of the cornea usually starting in teenage years resulting in warpage of the cornea due to weak collagen fibers and causing progressively worse vision and distortion.
The condition is diagnosed with specialized topography machines and treatment has been simplified to an effective 10 minute exposure to concentrated UV light (UV crosslinking). Dr Wei has been performing this procedure for 15 years.
