Glaucoma is a disease that damages the optic nerve and causes permanent vision loss. In most cases, the damage is very slow and gradual; so slow, that patients usually don’t realize their vision is changing until they’ve lost a lot of their sight.
Since glaucoma doesn’t typically create any noticeable symptoms, the best way to catch the disease early is through regular eye exams.
The macula is the small area of the retina responsible for your central vision. It’s the part of the eye that helps you read text messages and recognize faces. Age-related macular degeneration is a disease that damages the macula, either through a build-up of scar tissue or small yellowish deposits called drusen.
Vision loss from AMD is permanent, which makes early detection super important. Your optometrist can check your retinal health and look for any signs of macular degeneration as part of your regular eye exam.
The average healthy eye has a round cornea with a pretty uniform curvature and thickness. Keratoconus is a condition where the cornea starts thinning and bulging outwards; taking on more and more of a cone shape.
Keratoconus changes the way the light enters your eye, warping and altering how you see. It can make your vision blurry even with glasses and also make it difficult to wear contact lenses comfortably.
To be fair, cataracts aren’t a disease; they’re a condition that develops naturally in everyone as they age. Having said that, cataracts are the world’s number one cause of blindness, particularly in underdeveloped countries.
Your eyes’ natural lenses get cloudy as time goes on, making it harder to see colors and details. In most cases, you’ll be prescribed stronger lenses to help you see better. But eventually, you may need to have your natural lenses surgically replaced with artificial ones, restoring clarity and color.
When your eyes don’t produce enough tears or enough high-quality tears, it’s called dry eye or dry eye disease. Without enough moisture and lubrication, your eyes can become irritated, and maybe even vulnerable to injuries.
We can use advanced diagnostic tools to identify the source of your dry eyes and find the most effective course of treatment for you.
