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 Envision EyeCare - West in Northwest El Paso. Early diagnosis and treatment can help preserve eye health and prevent vision loss.

I’d like to thank Practice Manager Monica & Assistant Manager Mark. For helping me select the perf... ect set of Tom Ford sunglasses! As soon as I walked in, I was greeted by Mark. He was professional , friendly and was eager to answer any questions I had. Practice Manager Monica assisted me in selecting my frames. I must have tried on the entire stock! But she was patient, professional, and explained the lenses and coatings in detail. Thank you both for the five star experience!

Went in today for the first time, since my last eye doctor retired. Boy! What a great experience!!... ! The staff was courteous, knowledgeable, and extremely kind! I didn't even have to wait that long to be seen. I would say at best within 5 minutes of completing my new patient papers. The doctor was extremely sweet, knowledgeable, and kind as well!!

I had my appointment late in the afternoon (4:20). I arrived early and since it was almost empty i ... went in almost right after i finished all my paperwork. The ladies that did the first part of the appointment were professional and courteous. And Dr. FAULKNER, was very nice, I've never had an eye exam where i felt the Dr. Was really paying attention and listening to my concerns. He was thorough and he explained everything. I had good experiences since i called to make the appointment.

In eleven years of patronage of Envision Eyecare I have never had a negative experience, diagnosis o... r correction. Service has always been of the highest quality. My only negative experience was with Tricare for Life who changed their payment policy that increased my out of pocket expenses.

Everyone is so friendly! Dr. Faulkner is thorough and does an excellent job with examinations. The r... est of his staff is great too. They really treat you like a patient here, rather than just a number. Mariah is so patient and friendly. She enthusiastically helped us for over 45 minutes while we indecisively picked out our new glasses.
