What is Cataracts?
A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s lens which can distort or block light rays from reaching the retina. Cataracts usually develop slowly and cause no pain. However, as a cataract grows larger, it clouds
more of the eye’s lens and significantly impairs vision.AMD
What is AMD?
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is common in individuals 60 years of age and older. Symptoms of AMD include problems with reading small print, spots clouding vision, and visual distortion. While there is no cure for AMD, we specialize in a number of innovative medical strategies that help slow the progression of the disease.
What is Glaucoma?
Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve. Damage to the optic nerve is a result of increased intraocular pressure (IOP). Increased IOP develops when the fluids in the eye improperly drain, build up, and cause subsequent increased IOP. Over time, an increase in IOP damages the optic nerve and may cause vision loss and blindness.
