Medical Eye Exams

Medical Eye Exams

Many systemic conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, and thyroid issues can show signs in our eyes. It is important to be screened for signs of these diseases and the doctor may need to dilate your eyes to fully evaluate these conditions. Our office has technology including visual field testing, fundus photography, optical coherence tomography (OCT), and topography to help evaluate your eyes.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve, which is the connection between our eyes to our brain. Glaucoma is typically characterized by high eye pressure. The doctor will check your eye pressure at the comprehensive eye exam, but may recommend additional testing including peripheral vision testing and retinal photography.

Cataracts

Cataracts are caused by the clouding of the lens in the back of the eye. Cataracts can lead to many symptoms including blurred vision, night time vision issues, and glare.

Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)

The macula is the central portion of the retina and is involved in our central vision.
