Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration is the leading cause of vision loss in America. It involves the breakdown of the central part of the retina. While there is no known procedural or surgical cure, vision loss can be slowed with treatment.

Floaters & Flashes

Floaters and flashes are fairly common among adults. Signs include the sudden onset of dark spots, spider webs, or wavy lines in your field of vision. It is important to get a diagnosis as soon as possible, as they could indicate a retinal tear or retinal detachment in the eye.

Macular Edema

Macular edema happens when fluid leaks out of the blood vessels in the central retina (the macula), and can lead to vision loss. By far the most common symptom of macular edema is blurring of your central vision.

Retinal Vein Occlusion

As the name implies, retinal vein occlusion happens when the veins of the retina experience a blockage. This can happen due to high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and people with diabetes are at a heightened risk.

Ocular Trauma

Ocular Trauma is the general term that ophthalmologists use for any kind of event that causes injury to the eye, such as falls, car accidents, chemical injuries, being struck by debris. It happens quickly and is usually traumatic.

Retinal Detachment/Tear

Retinal detachment is an urgent situation where a part of the retina pulls away from its normal position. It’s important to treat this condition as soon as possible – failure to do so can result in permanent vision loss.

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic Retinopathy (diabetic eye disease) is the leading cause of blindness among the ages of 20-64 in the United States. It occurs when high blood sugars damage the blood vessels of the retina. The disease may be present for years before any symptoms occur, so regular evaluation and testing are important.

Macular Holes

A macular hole is a small break in the center of the macula and can be caused by forces pulling on the retina. Macular holes cause blurry vision in the center of your eye, but this can often go unnoticed if it’s only present in one eye.

Macular Pucker

When scar tissue forms in the central retina, a macular pucker can develop. Like most macular issues, symptoms can include a blurring of the central vision. The loss of vision can progress slowly and unnoticed if only in one eye.

Dislocated Intraocular Lens

A dislocated intraocular lens can happen to both natural lenses and lens implants. The lens moves from it’s normal position backwards towards the retina, resulting in blurry vision and possibly double vision with one eye closed.
