Common Eye Diseases & Conditions

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a common eye disease that generally develops because of rising intraocular pressure (IOP). As your IOP levels rise, it places pressure on your optic nerve, which can lead to serious vision loss if not detected and treated early.

There are 3 common types of glaucoma; open-angle, closed-angle, and normal-tension. Open-angle can develop slowly over time, while closed-angle rapidly raises your IOP levels. Normal-tension glaucoma occurs without raising your IOP but can be detected during an eye exam.

For more information on glaucoma, be sure to check out our Glaucoma page!

 

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) are 2 different diseases that specifically target your macula, a part of your retina responsible for your central vision. As the disease progresses, it can affect your ability to read, drive, or even recognize faces.

For more information on AMD, please visit our Macular Degeneration page!

Diabetic retinopathy occurs when high glucose levels in your blood damage the blood vessels behind your retina, causing your retina to develop delicate vessels to help get the blood it needs. However, these vessels can break and leak fluids into your retina, causing vision loss.

For more information about diseases related to diabetes, please visit our Diabetic Eye Exams page!

Cataracts are a common eye condition occurring when the clear, crystalline lens of your eye grows more rigid and opaque, leading to a foggy, milky appearance that could affect your vision.

Please visit our Cataracts page today for more information!

Detecting Eye Diseases

Retinal Imaging

Retinal imaging is the latest technology in eye care and can monitor your eyes for a range of different diseases and conditions. This non-invasive technology captures photos of your retina and optic nerve so our optometrists can look for signs of damage caused by glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachments, and more.

Visual field testing can help us detect diseases that could affect your overall field of vision. Many diseases, like glaucoma, macular degeneration, stroke, and brain tumors can affect your central or peripheral visual field, which can lead to permanent vision loss. Our eye clinic uses the state-of-art Medmont M700 Automated Perimeter to assess and diagnose your visual field.

Goldmann applanation tonometry is often considered the gold standard when it comes to assessing your intraocular pressure. These tonometers lightly press a probe against your eye’s surface, measuring your eye’s resistance to determine your IOP levels.

Unlike Goldmann applanation tonometry, non-contact tonometers measure your IOP levels by puffing a little bit of air onto your eye’s surface. This puff helps determine your IOP levels by also measuring your eye’s resistance.

Adult & Senior Eye Exams

More than 80% of a child’s learning is based on their vision. Make sure your child is reaching their full potential at school. Eye exams provide so much more than just a lens prescription; they’re vital in detecting and treating vision problems that could affect your child for the rest of their lives. Many eye diseases and conditions can develop during your child’s early years, threatening their vision.

 

Children's Eye Exams

Many eye diseases can develop for years without showing symptoms. Early detection is important as these conditions can damage your vision permanently if they progress far enough. Book an eye exam today to help diagnose and manage any early eye disease you or your family may have.
