Macular Degeneration

Macular Degeneration is a disease of the eye that affects central vision. With someone who has macular degeneration the central part of the retina, the macula, is affected and over time can lead to loss of vision and visual impairment. This generally occurs in older individuals but can also be hereditary and begin to show signs in younger patients also.


Glaucoma affects the health of the Optic Nerve. The Optic nerve is a direct connection to your eye and your brain. Peripheral vision loss is typically what begins to happen with a person who has glaucoma. There are many different types of Glaucoma, and it is important to monitor for this as it generally is a slow process that individuals don’t recognize problems with until the damage is significantly impacting their vision.


Diabetes impacts the health of our blood vessels which are vitally important for the health and function of our vision. Increase in blood sugar levels from diabetes damages the lining of the blood vessels and can cause them to rupture and bleed. This impacts the health of the tissues around those blood vessels and can impact visual performance and health of the eye.


The lens inside our eye helps us focus on incoming light for us to see clearly. Cataract development causes the lens to become cloudy and therefore increases glare and disrupts visual clarity. There are many factors that are involved with cataract development including but not limited to medication, health conditions, environmental factors, and age.

We evaluate these health conditions and many more during a comprehensive visit and focused check-ups that are enhanced with our diagnostic technology. The Optomap is a widefield panoramic camera we use to document and monitor changes to the health of the eye. Our OCT technology helps us monitor changes to the layers of the retina and optic nerve for disease management. We also utilize virtual reality headsets, enhancing patient comfort, to perform visual fields which helps to monitor the function of our vision.
