DIABETIC EYE CARE

Diabetic retinopathy visionDiabetic retinopathy may be present without any symptoms.

Early detection is the best protection against vision loss.

People with diabetes should schedule eye exams by an ophthalmologist at least once a year.  More frequent medical eye exams may be necessary once diabetic retinopathy has been diagnosed.

With careful monitoring, the ophthalmologist can begin treatment before their sight is affected.  The argon laser and operative surgery are highly effective treatments for the diabetic patient.

GLAUCOMA

Glaucoma earned the nickname "silent thief of sight" because the most common type of glaucoma, known as open angle glaucoma, has no pain or symptoms at its onset.

Glaucoma is caused by the build-up of fluid inside the front of the eye. This fluid causes abnormal pressure inside the eye and can damage the optic nerve in the back of the eye. This damage is permanent.

It is very important to have regular eye exams to catch this "silent thief of sight" before too much damage is done. Glaucoma can be treated with medication and, in some cases, intraocular surgery.

The Eye Clinic is proud to offer patients the latest technology in detecting glaucoma and retinal diseases with the Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT). The OCT is an established medical imaging technique used to provide high resolution, three-dimensional images of the optic nerve and retina.  The OCT is used to detect glaucoma and retinal diseases in the earliest stage.  It is also used to track the progress of the patients being treated for glaucoma or retinal diseases.

LASER PROCEDURES

Eye Clinic doctors use lasers instead of traditional surgery to treat and correct certain eye conditions. We perform laser treatments of glaucoma and other conditions at a rate of about 1,200 a year.

The YAG Laser:
The YAG laser is used to open a clouded membrane after cataract surgery. While a laser cannot remove the actual cataract, it is quite effective in restoring vision without pain and without hospitalization.

The Argon Laser:
The Argon laser treats glaucoma by helping to open closed drainage canals in the eye. It also can be used to treat certain retinal conditions such as retinal tears and retinal disease caused by diabetes.

PEDIATRIC EYE CARE
Strabismus is a visual defect in which the eyes are misaligned and point in different directions. One eye may look straight ahead, while the other eye turns inward, outward, upward or downward.

You may always notice the misalignment or it may come and go. The turned eye may straighten at times and the straight eye may turn.

Strabismus is a common condition among children. About 4% of all children in the United States have strabismus. It can also occur later in life.

Strabismus may cause reduced vision, or amblyopia, in the weaker eye.
