Diabetic Related Eye Disease Treatment
We understand the impact of diabetes on eye health. With approximately 30.4 million Americans living with diabetes, it is crucial to address the eye diseases associated with this condition.
It’s crucial to identify if you suffer from any of the following symptoms, as they might be indicators of a dry eye condition:
- Dryness, Grittiness or Scratchiness: A continuous feeling of something in your eye or a lack of moisture.
- Soreness or Irritation: An unending sensation of discomfort or redness.
- Burning or Watering: An ironic mix where the eyes burn and, in response, might produce an excessive amount of tears.
- Eye Fatigue: A frequent tiredness in the eyes, even when you’ve had enough rest.
Our doctors have been extensively trained and have years of experience diagnosing and treating Glaucoma.
Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness for people over 60 years old. However, blindness from glaucoma can often be prevented with early treatment. Glaucoma is a disease that damages your eye’s optic nerve. It usually occurs due to elevated pressure in the eye which then damages the optic nerve.
Living with Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD) can be challenging. Macular Degeneration is a medical condition that affects older adults and causes a loss of central vision due to damage to the retina.

Retinal Vascular Diseases
Retinal Vascular Diseases encompass a spectrum of conditions affecting the blood vessels and circulation within the retina. Recognizing the uniqueness of each patient’s condition, our commitment is to deliver an in-depth understanding, diagnosis, and tailored treatments.
Retinal detachment is a separation of the light-sensitive membrane in the back of the eye (the retina) from its supporting layers.
The retina is the clear tissue in the back of the eye that helps you see the images that are focused on it by the cornea and the lens. The most common type of retinal detachments are often due to a tear or hole in the retina. Eye fluids may leak through this opening. This causes the retina to separate from the underlying tissues, much like a bubble under wallpaper. This is most often caused by a condition called posterior vitreous detachment. However, it may also be caused by trauma and very bad nearsightedness. A family history of retinal detachment also increases your risk.
Another type of retinal detachment is called tractional detachment (TRD). This is seen in people who have uncontrolled diabetes, previous retinal surgery, or have chronic inflammation.
When the retina becomes detached, bleeding from area blood vessels may cloud the inside of the eye, which is normally filled with vitreous fluid. Central vision becomes severely affected if the macula, the part of the retina responsible for fine vision, becomes detached.
We encounter patients with retinal detachments often. If you are concerned that you may be suffering from this condition, you are certainly not alone. We are proficient at treating retinal detachments and are confident we can help you reach a desired outcome.
