Eye Conditions and Treatments
We believe that an educated patient is more likely to make informed decisions, so we try to make helpful information available to allow you to learn more about the many common eye conditions and their treatments. Do you believe you may be suffering from one of the conditions listed on this page? Do you have concerns about your ocular health? Feel free to contact us to schedule a consultation.
OCTOptical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina, the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye. With OCT, each of the retina’s distinctive layers can be seen, allowing your optometrist to map and measure their thickness. These measurements help with early detection, diagnosis and treatment guidance for retinal diseases and conditions, including age-related macular degeneration and diabetic eye disease, among others. In addition, OCT is often used to evaluate disorders of the optic nerve. The optic nerve is made up of many nerve fibers and sends signals from your retina to your brain, where these signals are interpreted as the images you see. The OCT exam is helpful in determining changes to the fibers of the optic nerve, such as those caused by glaucoma.
DRPDigital Retinal Photography (DRP) is a cutting-edge technology which enables eye doctors to discern even the most subtle changes in your retina. This technology helps optometrists with the early detection of eye disease and in monitoring the progression of a disease and when or if to consider a referral to a sub-specialist.
