Dry Eye Disease

The symptoms of dry eye can be irritating and disruptive, especially when you have tried numerous remedies without success.

Dry eyes are typically evaporative in nature, and most affected people do not have eyes that “feel” dry. Instead, they experience more subtle symptoms such as hazy, cloudy, or blurry vision, which they might not necessarily associate with dry eyes. We can diagnose the cause of your dry eyes and provide an effective treatment plan for your specific case.

Diabetes increases your risk of developing diabetic retinopathy, the leading cause of blindness in American adults. If you have diabetes, it’s vital that you undergo annual diabetic eye exams and talk to your eye doctor about lifestyle choices that can help control diabetic complications.

Without regular visits and monitoring, diabetic retinopathy can result in permanent blindness. Diabetes also increases your risk of other eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration.

Age-related macular degeneration is a leading cause of blindness around the world. Detecting this condition early is essential for preventing significant vision loss. Through digital retinal imaging and comprehensive testing, we can detect this condition and work to preserve your vision.

Age-related changes can eventually cause your lenses to become cloudy, leading to the development of cataracts. Medical Optometry America eye doctors offer the necessary expertise and services to detect and manage cataract development in its early stages.

If cataract development is more advanced, MOA doctors can help determine when you should adjust your prescription and when you may want to consider surgery.

Glaucoma often develops without any noticeable symptoms. In most cases it causes slow, progressive, painless damage to your optic nerve, impairing your peripheral vision and eventually leading to blindness. Thorough testing can detect glaucoma early and give you an opportunity to protect your vision by managing its effects.
