Visual Field testing can help save vision because it is another test used to diagnose or rule out glaucoma and other neurological disorders that affect vision. This simple, but effective service has saved lives by detecting various medical conditions such as strokes, brain tumors, and other neurological defects.
A high-definition digital image of the retinal area helps your eye doctor diagnose and manage eye diseases in the delicate retinal area. Damage to these delicate structures of the retinal area is often the first sign of systemic diseases such as MS, diabetes and more. The retina is the “window to the body” and routine retinal imaging can help your eye doctor monitor the changes in your eye health from year to year. New technology from Optos enables the doctor to see a much wider view of the back of the eye compared to traditional retinal imaging.

A cataract is a clouding of the lens inside the eye. The lens sits just behind the pupil and is responsible for focusing light. As the lens increases in cloudiness, it becomes more difficult to see objects clearly and bright lights can cause glare. The most common form of cataract is that of aging and it is inevitable as we mature. In most cases, cataracts do not cause any harm to the eye and cataract surgery is only done to improve the vision in which glasses no longer can improve the vision. Cataract surgery is more the patients decision than ours, because we usually recomend surgery only when the cataracts are affecting your daily life. There is no harm in delaying surgery if your life is only minimally affected.
