Many people are affected by different problems with their eyes. Our optometrist is experienced and qualified to provide adequate eye treatment services. At EliteVision Eyecare Maywood, NJ, we can provide professional eye services in the following areas.
Our eye doctor can measure the pressure inside your eyes to establish if you have this eye condition. We may also conduct other tests to examine the optic nerve for any damage that may have been caused by increased pressure. If we detect any changes, we can prescribe the necessary medication to help lower the stress and prevent further damage. Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness, and it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible once it has been diagnosed.
Cataracts are a clouding of the eye's natural lens and usually occurs as people age. They typically develop slowly; in most cases, they don't cause problems at first. However, as they progress, they tend to cause blurred vision and make it difficult to see clearly. If left untreated, they can eventually lead to blindness. Surgery is a good way to remove cataracts. Our optometrist can help your find an experienced surgeon to perform the procedure using the latest technology to help ensure you regain your normal vision.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
AMD is a common eye condition that usually affects older adults. It causes damage to the macula, which is the part of the eye responsible for central vision. There are two types of macular degeneration: dry AMD and wet AMD. Dry AMD develops slowly, and it is the most common type. Wet AMD, on the other hand, progresses rapidly and can lead to blindness if it is not treated early. Our eye doctor can conduct tests to diagnose AMD and prescribe the necessary treatment to help slow its progression.
A dry eye might sound like a minor problem, but it can be pretty debilitating. It occurs when the eyes don't produce enough tears or when the tears evaporate too quickly. This condition can cause a lot of discomforts and make it difficult to carry out everyday activities such as reading and driving. Our experienced optometrist will carry out tests to diagnose dry eye and prescribe the necessary treatment to help relieve the symptoms.
If you have trouble seeing at a distance or up close, you might have a vision disorder such as farsightedness or nearsightedness. We can prescibe eyeglasses and other types of eye wear to correct vision disorders and help you to see normally.
