What Our Patients Are Saying...
PRECISE TREATMENTS: MEDICAL MANAGEMENT FOR EYE DISEASE
As we age, the natural lens of our eye or the crystalline lens becomes cloudy, which is also known as a cataract. The fibers of our natural lens lose transparency, which leads to poor vision and low color contrast.
Cataract surgery is the removal of the natural lens of the eye. The old lens is replaced with a new artificial lens called an intraocular lens (IOL) to bring your vision back into focus. Some premium intraocular lenses can correct astigmatism and help patients achieve clarity at near and far distances.
Cataract surgery co-management with our optometrists allows you to learn more about your vision. We can guide you on your journey to help you restore your eyesight to clarity and start seeing colors in their full vivacity. Our team of eye care professionals can advise when your cataract requires surgery as well as visual solutions specific for your visual needs.
Glaucoma is not a single disease. It is actually a group of eye diseases that cause damage to the optic nerve due to an increase in pressure inside the eye, which is called intraocular pressure (IOP). When detected in the early stages, glaucoma can often be controlled, preventing severe vision loss and blindness. However, symptoms of noticeable vision loss often only occur once the disease has progressed. This is why glaucoma is called “the sneak thief of sight”. Unfortunately, once vision is lost from the disease, it usually can’t be restored.
Treatments include medication or surgery that can regulate the IOP and slow down the progression of the disease to prevent further vision loss.
The macula on the retina provides sharp, central vision. The breakdown of the macula is a disease called macular degeneration and can be serious. Untreated macular degeneration is one of the leading causes of blindness in those over 65 years old.
While researchers have not yet discovered a cure for age-related macular degeneration (AMD), there are treatment options which prevent the disease from progressing to blindness, and in some cases, they can even improve vision. It’s important to have an open discussion with your eye doctor about the risks and limitations of AMD treatments.
Diabetic retinopathy is an eye disease that only affects diabetics. It occurs when the fragile vascular network that supplies the retina – the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye that helps us see – begins to swell or leak. During the beginning stages of the disease, there may be no noticeable symptoms, so it’s important to have your eyes checked at least once a year if you have diabetes.
