Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

Eye Disease Management Includes:

  • Comprehensive eye exam

    Comprehensive eye exams are critical in catching sight-robbing eye diseases that typically don’t show early symptoms.

  • Diagnostic screening

    Certain changes in your eyes can indicate eye conditions. Our optometrists can diagnose the disease and determine the cause of these changes.

  • Treatments and surgeries

    We provide a wide range of treatments, including prescription eye drops and other medication. If needed, we'll refer you to the right specialist for eye surgery.

  • After care and follow-up

    We provide follow-up exams and after-care treatments to help you manage your symptoms and safeguard your vision.


What Are the 4 Most Common Eye Diseases?

  • Diabetic Retinopathy

    If you have diabetes, you should be aware of the risk of diabetic retinopathy. Elevated blood sugar can cause blood vessels in the eye to become inflamed or swell. In the early stages, you may not notice symptoms, but advanced diabetic retinopathy can cause blurred vision or eye inflammation.

    Diabetic retinopathy treatment includes:

    • Prescription medication
    • Laser surgeries
    • Anti-VEGF and steroid injections
    • Vitrectomy
  • Glaucoma

    Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness and often doesn’t show early symptoms. High pressure inside the eye causes glaucoma, and the purpose of glaucoma management is to reduce intraocular pressure.

    Glaucoma treatments include:

    • Prescription eye drops or medications
    • Laser procedures
    • Filtration surgery
    • Drainage tubes
    • Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS)
  • Cataracts

    Cataracts are cloudy formations on the eye lens. They can make your vision blurry and distorted. To restore normal vision, an optometrist will recommend cataract surgery, which involves replacing the cloudy lens with an artificial intraocular lens.

  • Macular Degeneration

    Macular degeneration, or AMD, occurs when the macula or the central part of the retina deteriorates. This results in blurred and distorted vision.

    There are two types of AMD: Dry AMD and Wet AMD.

    Although there isn’t a treatment for dry AMD, lifestyle changes and specific supplements can help prevent further vision deterioration.

    Wet AMD treatments include:

    • Photodynamic therapy
    • Anti-VEGF injections
    • Laser photocoagulation

Distorted or Blurred Vision? Have a family history of serious eye diseases?

Schedule an eye exam at Foothills Vision and Eye Care in The Landings. Early diagnosis and treatment can help preserve eye health and prevent vision loss.

Friendly, helpful, and attentive staff. I appreciated that all of my questions were answered with de... tails and felt I had comprehensive care from both Dr. Skrdla and Jonathan, one of the opticians. I have dry eye and with my previous Kaiser insurance, really struggled to find a provider that knew what they were doing and what products to recommend. It was clear to me that Dr. Skrdla is very knowledgeable about treatments and options for this.

Dr. Skrdla is the best! I've moved or gone to other optometrists and always come back. The team of o... phthalmologists are equally as wonderful, giving me a ton of their valuable time to find the perfect pairs, even helping me customize some lenses on a pair of frames I had. Now they just might be my favorite. Couldn't be happier. Thank you Foothills Eye Care! Still same quality of care since Spex days with an even greater assortment of frames to choose from.

I will never go anywhere else besides here for my eye care! I've had a wonderful experience every ti... me I've come here. The staff is attentive, kind, and so good at their jobs. Dr. Haugen is very thorough and kind, and he will answer any question you have. In fact, everyone is great at answering questions and explaining things to you! Visiting the eye doctor can be a stressful event because my eyesight is pretty bad, and it can be disheartening when my vision gets worse. However, Foothills Vision & Eye Care makes it a completely anxiety-free event, and I know I am receiving the best care possible here!

The staff and Dr Skrdla are so helpful, friendly, and excellent at what they do.
