Comprehensive Ophthalmology Services
Stillwater Eyecare provides patients with medical and surgical treatment for eye disorders and diseases. We are committed to providing you advanced ophthalmology services so you can stay close to home for your care.
- Advanced Retinal Imaging - We have the most advanced and comprehensive retinal imaging in Payne County as well as the only retina specialist between the Tulsa and Oklahoma City metro areas. We offer such imaging modalities as OCT (optical coherence tomography), OCT angiography, fluorescein angiography, retinal and orbital ultrasonography, retinal fundus photography, and fundus autofluorescence.
- Cataract Surgery - When the natural lens in your eye becomes cloudy, it becomes a cataract. If it gets cloudy enough, it can affect your vision. Much like it can be difficult to see through a dirty windshield, it can be difficult to see through a cloudy cataract. The only way to fix a cataract is to have cataract surgery. Dr. Stephen Martin and Dr. Matthew Flood both perform outpatient cataract surgery. We use state of the art equipment and the most advanced techniques. This allows you to get the best result and the best vision after surgery. We are proud to provide cataract surgery right here in Stillwater with the outstanding team at the SMC Surgery Center.
- Astigmatism Correcting Lens
- Astigmatism Correcting Lens
- Gas Bubble for Retinal Detachments - A retinal detachment can occur when a tear or hole develops in the retina. This allows fluid to get behind the retina, which causes the retina to detach like wallpaper. While some patients require repair in the operating room, Dr. Flood offers in-office gas bubble procedures to push the retina back into place, potentially allowing you to avoid a trip to the operating room.
- Intravitreal Injections - An intravitreal injection is an injection of medication into the vitreous (clear gel that fills the back part of the eye) to improve vision and prevent vision loss from diseases of the retina. Dr. Flood is the 1st ophthalmologist in Stillwater offering these treatments. Intravitreal injections are used most commonly to treat conditions such as:
- Wet Macular Degeneration
- Diabetic Eye Disease (diabetic retinopathy/diabetic macular edema)
- Retinal Vein Occlusions (central and branch retinal vein occlusion)
- Macular Edema
- Laser Treatment for Torn Retina - As we age, the clear gel that fills the back of the eye will separate from the retina. This is a normal age-related change. When this occurs, some people may experience flashing lights or floaters. Some of these people can experience a tear in the retina, which increases the risk of a retinal detachment and vision loss. If you suddenly develop flashes and floaters, you should have a dilated eye exam to rule out a tear or hole in the retina. At Stillwater Eyecare we can treat retinal tears using a laser to make small micro burns around the torn retina to wall it off and reduce the risk of a retinal detachment.
- Laser Treatments for Diabetes - Patients with diabetes can develop diabetes of the retina (diabetic retinopathy), which can involve the growth of abnormal blood vessels. This can lead to large bleeds in the eye, retinal detachments, and potentially blindness. Dr. Flood is the only person in Stillwater to offer preventative laser treatments for this condition.
- Micro-invasive Glaucoma Surgery - New micro-invasive techniques developed within the last 5-10 years can lower eye pressure with much less risk than previous surgical procedures.
- Droopy eyelids - As we age, the skin around our eyes can change. In some people, this can result in a droopy appearance that can obstruct vision. We offer surgical treatments to repair droopy or sagging eyelids to restore vision.
