Our EyeMDs screen for glaucoma during comprehensive eye exams. Patients at risk for developing glaucoma undergo additional testing including further evaluation and analysis of their intraocular pressure along with OCT™ nerve fiber layer analysis and optic nerve evaluations. Our EyeMDs manage our patients who have glaucoma, providing state-of-the-art treatment options including daily eye drops, peripheral iridotomy and SLT™ (laser treatments), and offer MIGS (micro-stent glaucoma surgery) when appropriate.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Our EyeMDs check for macular degeneration during comprehensive eye exams. Patients at risk of macular degeneration may undergo more frequent macular exams, as well as specialized OCT™ retina analysis when needed. We also help patients manage AREDS vitamin supplementation according to the latest research. We co-manage our macular degeneration patients with our retina colleagues when needed.
Patients with diabetes need a comprehensive eye exam including a dilated exam once a year. Our EyeMDs monitor our diabetic patients closely for diabetic changes that might adversely affect vision and might require more frequent dilated eye exams. We work closely with our retina colleagues when necessary.
Cataracts are a clouding of the lens inside the eye which typically cause a gradual blurring of vision. Vision changes from cataracts might not be noticeable until a patient attempts to read the small print on an eye chart during an exam! Our EyeMDs screen for the development of cataracts during comprehensive eye exams and advise patients on when it is appropriate to undergo cataract surgery. When cataract surgery is indicated, we perform state-of-the-art cataract surgery using the latest technology and intraocular lenses, offering toric and multifocal intraocular lens options to patients when appropriate.
A comprehensive eye exam also includes evaluation of your eyelids. Our EyeMDs carefully assess the health of your eyelids to screen for dry-eye related issues, allergies, benign lumps and bumps, skin cancers, and droopy eyelids. We perform lid surgeries including removal of skin lesions, as well as surgeries for droopy eyelids and eyebrows including blepharoplasty, ptosis surgery, ectropion repair, entropion repair and brow lifts.
