See Life with Healthy Sight
Clarity and comfort are important, but do you know how healthy your eyes are?
It can be difficult to tell. Your eyes are an intricate web of complex systems, and these systems may not present symptoms of issues as they’re developing.Request Appointment
The Importance of Eye Exams
Everyone’s needs are unique. That’s why we recommend regular eye exams to catch any potential concerns before they affect your vision.
Certain eye diseases and conditions can develop without showing any symptoms. But don’t worry! Our technology-driven eye exams can detect these issues early on.
Common Eye Diseases & Conditions
We can help address these issues with a few different strategies. However, in certain cases, we may refer you to a specialist to help develop a treatment or management plan.
Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that can affect the optic nerve. It’s often associated with high internal eye pressure (intraocular pressure or IOP) but can also develop when the pressure is within normal limits.
The most common types of glaucoma include:
- Open-angle glaucoma
- Closed-angle glaucoma
- Normal-tension glaucoma
Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a common eye disease typically affecting adults age 55 and over.
It affects the macula, a part of your retina responsible for providing the central vision you use for reading, driving, and recognizing faces.
Diabetic retinopathy is a common eye disease for those who live with diabetes. It occurs when sugar in your bloodstream causes the blood vessels in your retina to bulge, break, and leak fluid. As a result, you may experience permanent vision loss.
Learn more about diabetes and how it can affect your vision on our Diabetic Eye Exams page.
Cataracts are common in older adults—an issue that can cause the natural lens in the eye to become cloudy and opaque, affecting how light enters your retina. As a result, it can blur your vision and may even lead to blindness.
How We Detect Eye Problems
We take a tech-focused approach to detecting eye diseases and conditions. If we discover a potential concern, we can develop a personalized strategy to help preserve your vision.
The Optos Optomap is a high-resolution imaging technology that allows us to capture a high-resolution, posterior view of your retina in a single image.
This technology can detect signs of eye disease, such as macular degeneration, retinal detachments, and diabetic eye disease, allowing us to monitor and treat potential issues before they become serious problems.
Optical Coherence Tomography
Tonometry is a technique we use to measure your eye’s internal pressure and detect signs of glaucoma or IOP levels.
iCare tonometry uses a similar technique but is handheld, giving us more mobility to measure your IOP.
Anterior Segment Photography
Anterior segment photography is a technique we use to capture images of the front of your eye. This includes the cornea, iris, and lens.
These images enable us to diagnose a variety of conditions, including cataracts, glaucoma, and iris abnormalities.
Meibography is a technique used to evaluate the health of your meibomian glands, which produce oils that keep the tear film from evaporating.
Meibography uses a specialized device to capture images of the meibomian glands and evaluate their health. With this technique, we can detect signs of meibomian gland dysfunction, a common cause of dry eye.
Visual Field Analysis
A visual field analyzer is a tool we use to determine if an eye disease has affected how much peripheral vision you have.
This technology is a fantastic way to help detect signs of glaucoma.
