We are specialists in five types of degenerative eye conditions, including Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), Diabetic Retinopathy, Retinal Tear and Retinal Detachment, Retinal Vein Occlusion (RVO) and Macular, and, Macular Pucker.
Essentially most macular degenerations, regardless of type, result in a blurring of the vision or even no vision at all in the center of the eye. While typically appearing in older people, it may happen occasionally to younger folks. A good diet and eliminating smoking may improve the condition. Most people, however, seem to benefit from medical treatment. And in fact, it usually takes medical diagnoses consisting of a complete eye exam to confirm a macular condition.
As specialists in macular conditions you can be assured you will receive a complete eye exam that will tell you, and us, exactly what state your eyes are in. It’s how we begin working with you. You’ll leave our offices knowing exactly what your facing and your treatment options.
