Detecting Eye Diseases Early

Early detection is an essential part of treating and managing eye diseases. Regular eye exams give us the best chance of diagnosing diseases early. Many eye diseases have no symptoms in the early stages, so by the time you notice a change in your vision, the damage can’t be undone.

Eye Diseases We Look For

We use a variety of methods to test for any irregularities in your ocular health. This allows us to detect eye diseases like cataracts, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration so we can treat and manage them early on.

Cataracts become an increasing concern as people age. It’s also a concern if you’ve had an eye injury or spend a lot of time in the sun. Signs of cataracts include blurry vision, muted colors, double vision, light sensitivity, and difficulty seeing at night. Once cataracts progress they need to be treated with surgery, but in the early stages, cataracts can be managed with a changes in glasses or magnifiers.

Glaucoma is a progressive disease of the optic nerve which is usually caused by an increase in eye pressure. The increased pressure, known as ocular hypertension, damages your optic nerve over time. Without diagnosis and treatment, glaucoma can irreversibly damage your vision.

When it’s caught early, glaucoma can be treated with eye drops and/or surgery. We can diagnose glaucoma during an eye exam using methods like Goldmann intraocular pressure measuring and visual field testing. These tests allow us to detect signs of glaucoma such as high pressure and peripheral vision loss.

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a deterioration of the central vision. The macula is located in the center of the retina and it’s responsible for visual acuity and color vision. As the disease progresses, you may notice a loss of the ability to see fine details. This often presents as the inability to recognize faces or to drive safely.

AMD is the leading cause of blindness in older Americans. There are 2 types of AMD known as dry AMD and wet AMD. Dry AMD is more common but is generally less severe. Dry AMD can progress to wet AMD, which is more serious and causes significant vision loss. An eye exam is the best way to detect AMD early.
