A yearly eye exam can also diagnose a number of other conditions a doctor of optometry treats. Examples include cataracts, astigmatism, and dry eye.
Treatment Options from Our Eye Doctors
Treatment of an eye disease begins with a vision exam. Our eye doctors perform both routine and comprehensive exams. A routine exam includes a discussion of your medical history and any symptoms you might be experiencing vision, eye function testing, and an eye health evaluation.
Patients who have an eye disease, or show signs or symptoms of an eye disease, receive a comprehensive exam. To evaluate your eyes, our optometrists use state-of-the-art tools that take precise measurements. They look for signs of eye disease and other disorders that can damage your vision without the right treatment. One helpful new technology we use for detecting eye disease is digital retinal photography. If eye disease is detected, our optometrist will recommend proper testing and treatment.
Our treatment for glaucoma includes medication in drop form.
AMD treatment includes injectable drugs and other options to slow progression of the disease.
Our eye doctors carefully monitor patients for any signs of diabetic eye disease and recommend that they seek medical treatment for their diabetes.
