Flashes & Floaters
Age-related changes are a common cause of the worrisome flashes and floaters that many of our patients experience. Changes in intraocular pressure and retinal shadows are the main causes for this phenomenon. The presence of these symptoms may be nothing to worry about or they may indicate that there may be an issue with the integrity of your retina. Contact us for a diagnostic exam if you are experiencing flashes or floaters.
Glaucoma tends to be caused by an increase in the production of the aqueous fluid of the eye or inadequate drainage. Glaucoma can lead to blindness if left untreated. Safe and effective treatment options for glaucoma are available at the Center for Vision.
When the cells of the retina become damaged, macular degeneration can occur and result in central vision blindness. Treatment options exist when the condition is diagnosed early.
Cataracts & Diabetic Retinopathy
Cataracts cloud the lens of the eye to the point of decreasing vision significantly if left untreated. Cataract surgery is available to remove the clouded lens and replace it with a new acrylic lens to restore sharper, clearer vision almost immediately.
The leading cause of blindness for adults is diabetic retinopathy. Approximately 90% of diabetics are expected to experience this condition during their lifetime. The disease causes abnormalities to occur within the blood vessels that provide nourishment to the retina. These weakened vessels may leak and fail to provide adequate nourishment to the retina. Early detection and treatment are critical. It is absolutely vital that every diabetic patient receives a comprehensive annual eye exam.
Regular examinations are critical to protecting and maintaining your eye health. Please see your eye care professional for an examination at least once a year.
