DILATED EYE EXAM
Instillation of eye drops to dilate the pupils for examination of the optic nerve, macula and peripheral retina
Dilated examinations are used in the evaluation of new onset floaters, glaucoma, retinal tears/ detachment and other retinal diseases. It is especially important for patients with high myopia or diabetes and for those on certain high risk medications to receive an annual dilated exam.
VISION LOSS EVALUATION
Evaluation of loss or change in vision resulting from various ocular or systemic conditions
Causes of sudden changes in vision include but are not limited to retinal detachments, retinal artery or vein occlusions, hemorrhages, acute glaucoma and trauma.
Measurement of intraocular pressure, examination of optic nerves, gonioscopy and visual field testing for the screening, evaluation and/or treatment of glaucoma
This is important to screen all patients for glaucoma since visual loss becomes apparent only late in the disease process. Early detection and treatment of glaucoma is critical to preserving vision.
Dilated retinal exam to detect diabetic retinopathy
All diabetic patients require yearly retinal exams as early changes are asymptomatic. Early detection and treatment can help prevent further visual loss.
MACULAR DEGENERATION EVALUATION
Exam for dry or wet macular degeneration
Macular degeneration is the leading cause of visual impairment in the elderly in the U.S. Early detection of wet macular degeneration helps preserve vision by early intervention with anti-angiogenic injections.
PEDIATRIC EYE SCREENING
Examination to check eye alignment and to verify the need for eyeglasses in nonverbal children
Early detection of visual problems in children is important to prevent permanent visual loss from amblyopia.
ACUTE EYE CARE
Treatment of eye infection, corneal abrasion and ocular trauma and removal of foreign body as needed
DRY EYE TREATMENT
Evaluation and treatment of the various sources of dry eyes
An individualized approach is taken in the treatment of dry eyes including topical therapy, punctal occlusion, supplementation and prescription medication as needed.
Removal of cataracts with intraocular lens implantation
Our practice uses the most advanced technology for intraocular lens measurements. Cataract surgeries are performed utilizing a small incision, no-stitch phacoemulsification technique with the option of additional laser treatment. We are certified in the implantation of the newer generation multifocal lenses. Secondary cataracts are treated with in office YAG laser therapy.
Evaluation and excision/ biopsy of eyelid lesions
Suspicious eyelid lesions are removed and biopsied. Chalazia are incised and drained as needed.
Evaluation and removal of pterygia and other growths
Sutureless pterygium removal can be done with the application of amniodry graft membranes.
