Don’t Let Eye Disease Put Your Vision at Risk

Eye disease can develop at any age, but your risk increases with time, making eye exams important as you grow older. The tests we complete during your eye exam help us identify problems in their earlier stages, protecting your eyes from unnecessary damage. 

Visit our practice in Brooklyn, and we can help diagnose and treat eye disease as early as possible. We’re here for your vision needs, providing personalized treatments.

Common Eye Diseases

Many eye diseases can develop symptom-free, placing your vision at risk without you knowing. You might not notice these diseases on your own, but our diagnostic technology can help. We can identify signs of eye-related problems, protecting your eye health and vision. 

Regular eye exams are vital for your eye health and vision. We test for eye disease during every exam, taking a comprehensive look at your eyes to prevent further damage to your vision. An early diagnosis can help reduce the risk of vision loss, allowing us to provide treatment sooner. 

Some common eye diseases include age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease affecting your macula, the part of your eye responsible for the vision right in front of you. As this disease progresses, the macula gradually loses the cells responsible for central vision, making it harder to see. There are 2 forms of AMD: dry and wet, and each requires different treatments to protect your sight.

A cataract occurs when the eye’s lens becomes cloudy and hazy, making everyday vision difficult. The most common cause of this condition is age, occurring as proteins and fibers in the eye break down and clump together with time.

As this condition worsens, it can be difficult to read or drive. Many patients receive cataract surgery to improve their vision.

Diabetic retinopathy is a significant issue for patients with diabetes, occurring when damaged blood vessels in the retina swell and leak fluid and blood. This disease can cause scarring in the eye, further bleeding, or other complications as it progresses.

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve, an essential part of the eye necessary for your vision. This disease can lead to permanent vision loss, making an early diagnosis crucial for protecting your sight.

There are several types of glaucoma, including:

How We Manage Eye Disease

After diagnosing eye disease, our team will work to create a personalized treatment plan to help preserve and protect your vision. While we can’t return damaged vision, we can help your remaining vision to function at its best. 

We created your treatment plan based on your lifestyle, medical history, and vision needs. Your treatment is unique to you, and we can adjust it as needed. Many diseases require long-term treatment, and we’re here to provide it.

Don’t Delay When It Comes to Your Eye Health

Your vision is precious, but eye disease can place it at risk. Don’t assume your eye health is fine just because you can see well.
