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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Eyelid Reconstruction
- Retina Related Problems - Injections and laser treatments for retinal problems such as macular degeneration, diabetes, retinal tears, and retinal detachments.
