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 Shawnee Optical - Lima in Lima. Early diagnosis and treatment can help preserve eye health and prevent vision loss.

I came here from another office because I was not happy at my old eye care center anymore. From the ... moment I walked in the door, I was met with a smile and friendly eager staff ready to help me. Dr. Wagner is knowledgeable, personable, and down to earth. The young man who helped my pick out my frames was very helpful and honest as well, which I appreciated too. I absolutely love my new glasses and for the 1st time in my life, I feel confident wearing glasses.

Excellent Service, all the staff was polite and pleasant. Dr. Wagnor is top notch and extremely prof... essional and caring. Her attention to detail and ensuring that I understood the results of my exam was both refreshing and enlighten. The young man that help me pick out my glasses (standard and safety) was well verse and able to answer all my questions and concerns. His professionalism was also top notch. Shawnee Optical was the only eye exam/care facility that had available appointments within a reasonable amount of time from when I placed it. The extensive eye wear show room is filled with different designs and styles, enough to find exactly what I was looking for. Many thanks to the staff and Doctor that helped me to see better again.
