Looking at More than Just Your Vision

Maintaining long-term eye health requires more than just managing vision. Detecting eye diseases during their early stages and getting treatment to help manage symptoms and prevent progression is essential for keeping your eyes healthy. Our goal is to take a deep look at your eyes to detect and treat eye diseases before they threaten your vision.

Common Eye Diseases

There are many conditions that can affect your eyes. Here’s a brief overview of some of the eye diseases we can help you manage:

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)

AMD is a condition that affects the central part of the retina and can lead to vision loss. It’s most common in people over the age of 50, and factors such as smoking, family history, and poor diet can increase your risk of developing AMD. Early detection is crucial for managing AMD. Treatment options include supplements, injections, and laser therapy.

Cataracts are a common condition that affects the lens of the eye, causing cloudiness and decreased vision. As cataracts progress, they can impact daily activities such as reading and driving. We can diagnose cataracts during a comprehensive eye exam and help you determine your needs for corrective surgery.

Glaucoma refers to a group of eye conditions that damage the optic nerve. It is often caused by increased pressure within the eye and is a leading cause of vision loss. Early detection is crucial for managing glaucoma. Treatment options include medications, laser therapy, and other forms of surgery.

Conjunctivitis, also known as pink eye, is an inflammation of the conjunctiva. It can be caused by bacteria, viruses, allergies, or irritants. Symptoms can include redness, eye irritation, and discharge. Treatment depends on the cause and can include eye drops, ointments, or oral medication.

Flashes and floaters are common visual disturbances that can be caused by changes in the vitreous humor, a gel-like substance in the eye. Flashes can appear as brief flickers of light, while floaters can appear as spots or lines in your field of vision. While often harmless, sudden onset or an increase in flashes and floaters can be a sign of a more serious condition, such as a retinal tear or detachment, and should be evaluated by an optometrist.
