Ocular Disease
Eyecare Associates has acquired the latest in Cirrus Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) technology. The Cirrus OCT is a high definition retinal scanning instrument which is becoming the industry standard for retinal disease diagnosis, management and treatment. It is useful in managing glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.



Ocular disease includes: optic nerve disorders, including glaucoma; retinal disorders - problems with the nerve layer at the back of the eye; macular degeneration - a disease that destroys sharp, central vision; and Diabetic eye problems.

Glaucoma: Glaucoma is the term applied to a group of eye diseases that gradually result in loss of vision by permanently damaging the optic nerve, the nerve that transmits visual images to the brain. The leading cause of irreversible blindness, glaucoma often produces no symptoms until it is too late and vision loss has begun. https://nei.nih.gov/health/glaucoma/glaucoma_facts

Macular Degeneration: Macular degeneration is the leading cause of severe, irreversible vision loss in people over age 60. It occurs when the small central portion of the retina, known as the macula, deteriorates. The retina is the light-sensing nerve tissue at the back of the eye. https://nei.nih.gov/health/maculardegen/armd_facts

Diabetic eye disease is a group of eye conditions that can affect people with diabetes:

Diabetic Retinopathy affects blood vessels in the light-sensitive tissue called the retina that lines the back of the eye. It is the most common cause of vision loss among people with diabetes and the leading cause of vision impairment and blindness among working-age adults.

Diabetic Macular Edema (DME) is a consequence of diabetic retinopathy; DME is swelling in an area of the retina called the macula.

All forms of diabetic eye disease have the potential to cause severe vision loss and blindness.
