Eye Disease Management in Omaha

Our Practice

Protecting Your Vision

The doctors at Heartland Eye Consultants believe 3 key factors influence the successful treatment of ocular disease. The quality time spent with the patient, the experience and talent of the doctors, and the use of advanced technology to diagnose and manage the condition.

When you visit our team, you’re sure to feel comfortable in our care. Contact us if you are experiencing vision problems, and we’ll be happy to answer all your questions.

We’re Here for You

As a specialty eye and vision center, we know the importance of high-quality care. Our optometrists cover a wide range of specialties to suit your unique needs. We’re dedicated to finding a solution that works best for you by taking the time to listen, understand, and then explain our personalized care plan. 

Common ocular diseases we treat include:

Cataracts

A cataract is the clouding of the eye’s natural lens. Your eye’s lens is mostly made of water and protein. As we age, some of the proteins may clump together and start to cloud the lens. Over time, it may grow larger and make it difficult to see clearly.

Symptoms of Cataracts

If you notice the following sign or symptoms, please don’t hesitate to contact us:

  • Glare and halos around light
  • Faded colors
  • Frequent changes in glasses or contact lens prescription
  • Double or smearing of vision in one eye

The risk of cataracts can increase due to the following factors:

  • Aging
  • Family history of cataracts
  • Medical conditions such as diabetes
  • Smoking
  • Experiencing an eye injury
  • Damage from UV rays

Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a degenerative retinal disease that causes a progressive loss of central vision. The retinal degeneration in AMD occurs in the area of the eye called the macula, responsible for the detailed vision of objects in front of you.

Risk factors for AMD include:

  • High blood pressure
  • Caucasian background
  • Family history of AMD
  • Over the age of 55
  • Smoking

Dry macular degeneration is usually the earlier and/or milder form of the condition, where cellular waste products (called drusen) build up in the macula.

Wet macular degeneration is the more advanced and severe form of the condition, where fluid (water or blood) leaks out of the vessels in the macula and causes dramatic vision loss.

Vision Therapy

Vision therapy is an effective, non-surgical, doctor-supervised treatment that retrains the brain and eyes to work together more efficiently. Rather than compensate for vision problems, vision therapy aims to treat and correct the visual system itself. Discover how we can help you or your child overcome vision problems and build a greater sense of confidence.
