Comprehensive Cataract Co-Management

We provide comprehensive co-management services for cataracts, a condition characterized by clouding of the eye's natural lens. Our approach includes pre-surgical assessments to determine the necessity of cataract surgery and post-operative care for recovery and positive vision outcomes.

Guarding Vision Against Diabetes

Diabetic retinopathy, a complication of diabetes, can lead to vision impairment if not managed properly. Our clinic uses advanced imaging technology to monitor changes in the retina and provide guidance on managing this condition effectively, preventing further vision loss, and maintaining overall eye health.

Personalized Glaucoma Treatments

Glaucoma, known as the "silent thief of sight," is a group of eye conditions that can cause irreversible vision loss due to damage to the optic nerve. We use state-of-the-art diagnostic tools to monitor eye pressure and nerve health, providing personalized treatment plans that may include medications, laser treatment, or surgical options to preserve vision.

Prescribing Topical Drugs for Glaucoma

When treating glaucoma, prescribing the right topical drugs is crucial for managing intraocular pressure and preventing optic nerve damage. Our optometrists offer a thorough evaluation process to determine the most effective medication regimen for each individual case.

Macular Degeneration Management

Macular degeneration is a leading cause of vision loss, particularly among older adults, affecting the macula, the central part of the retina. We provide comprehensive management for macular degeneration, focusing on lifestyle modifications, nutritional supplementation, and monitoring for changes in vision.

Prescribing Oral Steroids

We use oral steroids in appropriate cases, like severe eye inflammation. We also carefully monitor our patients to ensure the efficacy and safety of the treatment, managing any potential side effects and adjusting the regimen as necessary.

Slowing Keratoconus Progression

Keratoconus is a progressive eye disease where the cornea thins and begins to bulge into a cone-like shape, distorting vision. Our treatment options for keratoconus include specialty contact lenses and co-management of corneal cross-linking procedures, helping patients maintain the best possible vision and slowing disease progression.
