Dr. Barrera is a therapeutically certified optometrist. That means he is specially trained to treat eye infections and allergies. That red eye may be an infection or maybe it's just an irritation caused by allergies to pets. Dr. Barrera can determine whether you should stay home or if you can go back to school or work. Sometimes when working in the yard, shop, or while on the job, metal, sawdust or anything else can get into the eye. With our specialized equipment we can see just about anything in the eye and are experts at removing metal, rust, sawdust, and anything that can get into your eye. We can then prescribe the right medication to heal you as fast as possible.
