Eye Disease Management

Utilizing cutting edge technology, your eye doctors at Altig Optical are diagnosing and managing, with greater precision, diseases like Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration and Cataracts. Earlier and more precise diagnosis means earlier treatment and better outcomes. We are taking an aggressive approach to diseases that previously had few treatment options. Great advances have been made in the treatment of these diseases.

Dry Eye Treatment

Dry eye syndrome (DES or dry eye) is a chronic lack of sufficient lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye. Its consequences range from minor irritation to the inability to wear contact lenses and an increased risk of corneal inflammation and eye infections. Persistent dryness, scratchiness and a burning sensation on your eyes are common symptoms of dry eye syndrome.

Surgery Co-Management

The doctors at Altig Optical Eye Care Clinic have extensive experience in the pre-operative evaluation and post-operative care of LASIK and other vision correction procedures. LASIK is currently the most popular vision-correcting or "refractive" surgery available. But there are other options as well. We will help you find the ideal solution for your problem and partner with the best surgeon to perform your procedure.

Zeiss DriveSafe Lenses

DriveSafe lenses are a special coating that enhances your everyday vision using an anti-reflective coating. Your vision with DriveSafe will be sharper, crisper and clearer – not only for driving!

The bottom line about DriveSafe lenses is they have the best lens treatments in the world. Generally, most lens treatments have a warranty where if you scratch them they will replace them once per year. However the DriveSafe lenses have a premium treatment, and the warranty includes multiple replacements over a two-year period.
