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 Malbar Vision - Orchard in South-West Omaha. Early diagnosis and treatment can help preserve eye health and prevent vision loss.

Malbar Vision Center is AMAZING!!! I have been going there for over 30 years and this year had to s... ee a new doctor since the one I had always seen is now retired. I was nervous to have someone new 'messing' with my eyes. However, Dr. Brian Cain made me quickly at ease and reassured me that it would all go well. I picked up my new glasses just this week and I can't believe how PERFECT he got the prescription for my progressive glasses! Thank you Malbar and here's to 30 more years!

I came here on the recommendation of a friend. The staff was friendly and helpful. The Dr was profes... sional, knowledgeable, and funny. He explained everything, answered all my questions, gave me my options, and off I went. I'm happy to finally have a eye doctor I can trust. **Update the original doctor the above is in reference to has now retired. There are two doctors here now that work different days, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting them both. They are both incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. There’s been some other staff changes as well but everything is still amazing 🥰
