Macular Degeneration
  by admin on May 8th, 2018

The macula is located in the central retina and is the part of your eye responsible for crisp straight-ahead vision. In some people this tissue begins to deteriorate over time. This is what is meant by Age Related Macular Degeneration. Early symptoms of macular degeneration include mild blurred and distorted vision. These symptoms can progress to severe loss of vision. Macular Degeneration is generally divided into two classifications- “dry” and “wet”. In the dry form, waste deposits builds up in the macula and causes the tissue to become thin and fail to function properly. At this stage, treatment includes changes in diet and nutritional supplements. In the wet form, new blood vessels grow into the macula and rapidly cause vision loss. In this stage, treatment includes laser or injections to stop this blood vessel growth. In both forms close monitoring with your eye doctor is necessary to reduce the risk of progression to severe vision loss.

Cataracts
  by admin on March 1st, 2018

Cataracts occur when the natural lens inside our eye becomes cloudy. As a result your vision is blurry even when you are wearing your glasses or contacts. Other symptoms of cataracts include trouble with glare, haloes and starbursts, difficulty seeing in dim lighting, and changes in how you see color. Most people will develop some form of cataracts over the course of their life time. With early cataracts treatment usually includes changing glasses prescription if needed and monitoring every year. When cataracts advance to a point that vision is significantly impacted, surgery is performed. When necessary, we refer to a  trusted and experienced cataract surgeon and see you back in our office the next day to make sure things are healing properly. Cataract surgery is very safe and has a low complication rate. While cataracts concern many people, they are in fact very common and easily managed. If you have been told you have cataracts or are concerned you may have cataracts, schedule an appointment with us and our doctors will be happy to discuss this condition with you.
