What Does Ophthalmology Cover?
Ophthalmology is a field of medicine that deals with the health of the human eye, including its anatomy and any diseases that may affect it. Ophthalmology handles all aspects of eyecare, including medical diagnosis and treatment, to help improve or maintain one’s eyesight. At The Eye Care P.C., our ophthalmologists are medically trained and licensed doctors who specialize in performing advanced eye diagnostics, treatment, and surgery.
What Do Ophthalmology Services Involve?
Also called lens replacement surgery, this procedure aims to remove the natural lens of the eye that has become cloudy or damaged, and replace it with a new and clear artificial lens.
Comprehensive Eye Exams
In contrast to routine eye exams, comprehensive eye examinations aim to observe all facets of the eye and visual function. During a comprehensive eye exam, we will be able to check for refractive eye errors and screen your eyes for any potential diseases in their early stages.
Also known as corneal grafting, it is a surgical operation that removes your damaged cornea and replaces it with new and healthy corneal tissue from a donor.
Diabetic Eye Care
People with diabetes may be at risk for unique eye diseases, such as macular edema, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and cataracts. We specialize in diabetic eye care, which includes a full diabetic eye exam that aims to diagnose and treat these conditions.
Dry Eye Treatment
Individuals with serious dry eye conditions may benefit from certain interventions such as advanced eye medications, punctal plugs, or specialty contact lenses that help to retain eye moisture.
Glaucoma develops when pressure builds in the eye and damages the optic nerve. When left undiagnosed, glaucoma is a serious condition that can cause permanent damage to one’s vision. If you are over the age of 60, you may be more at risk for developing glaucoma, and it is imperative to have your eyes regularly screened for any early signs of the disease.
Iritis occurs when your iris (the colored portion of the eye around the pupil) experiences inflammation. It may be caused by several factors, such as trauma to the eye, an infection, or as a result of other diseases.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) happens when there is damage or deterioration to your macula, causing your central vision to be blurred or permanently damaged. It is typically characterized by a blurred, distorted, gray, or blind spot in the center of your vision. At this stage, it may be possible to explore vision rehabilitation treatments.
Uveitis is another form of eye inflammation associated with your immune system. It can develop as a result of an autoimmune disease, injury, or infection, and it mainly affects the middle part of your eye, called the uvea.
