Continuing Care

Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration is the leading cause of severe, irreversible vision loss in those over the age of 60. It occurs when the small central portion of the retina, known as the macula, deteriorates. The retina is the light-sensing nerve tissue at the back of the eye.

Diabetic Dilation Exam

Diabetes affects your whole body, including your eyes. It increases your risk for eye conditions, such as glaucoma and cataracts. However, the main concern for diabetics (type 1 or type 2) is diabetic retinopathy.

Diabetic retinopathy develops when the blood vessels in your retina become damaged. If there is enough damage, you could lose your vision entirely.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is an eye disease that is often associated with elevated intraocular pressure, in which damage to the eye (optic) nerve can lead to loss of vision and even blindness. Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in the world.
