Management of Ocular Diseases

Our Eye Care Clinic makes it a policy to ensure that all staff members are up-to-date on the latest technology and techniques to make your visit as comfortable and effective as possible. As optometric technology changes, it is even more important to select an eye doctor who has all the right optometry qualifications and follows the latest developments in eye care.

Utilizing cutting edge technology, we are diagnosing and managing, with greater precision, diseases like Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration and Cataracts. Earlier and more precise diagnosis means earlier treatment and better outcomes. We are taking an aggressive approach to diseases that previously had few treatment options. Great advances have been made in the treatment of these diseases.

Our Doctors Answer:

Why do I need to scan my retinas/back of my eye?

The scan, or photograph, shows exactly what the inside of your eyes looks like.  For healthy people with healthy eyes, it documents the fact that your eyes are healthy and normal.  For eyes that are not healthy, I can show you just what the problem is and be able to monitor for changes over time.

Why is my vision going bad once I turned 50?

Each birthday we get, our eyes lose a little bit of ability to focus up close.  Starting in the early 40's we notice that we can't see as well up close as we did before.  It also takes our eyes a little longer to look from one thing to another than it did before.

Do vitamins help prevent eye disease? Are there specific foods I should try to eat?

Some vitamins and antioxidants to help reduce your risk of developing certain eye diseases and promote good health overall.  Higher dietary intake levels of lutein and zeaxanthin have shown to be beneficial as well as foods that contain vitamins C, E, B6, B12 and D3 (among others).  

  • Cataracts are a common cause of vision loss after age 55. Learn more about recognizing cataracts symptoms, protecting your eyes and understanding cataract surgery.
  • Glaucoma is a condition that causes damage to your eye's optic nerve and gets worse over time, so nipping it in the bud will always be better for the person being tested.
  • The macula is the portion of the retina which provides sharp, central vision, and is involved in processing the fine details of the image. The breakdown of the macula is a disease called macular degeneration.
  • Diabetes and vision go hand in hand. If you have diabetes, you need to know that having this systemic disease puts you at greater risk for developing vision problems.
