Diabetic retinopathy occurs when the blood vessels in the back of the eye, change. Sometimes these vessels weaken and leak fluid or cause abnormal vessels to grow on the surface of the retina, which may hemorrhage. It is the leading cause of blindness in the 20-64 year age group, and is one of the most frequent causes of retinal blindness in the world. About 25% of diabetics have some form of diabetic retinopathy, and 5% have severe disease.
Glaucoma is an eye disease in which the optic nerve is damaged due to higher than normal eye pressures. If left untreated it can often cause loss of vision and can eventually lead to blindness. A glaucoma evaluation is the easiest way to detect and prevent this disease. Here at Casa Grande Eye Care, our experienced eye doctors will do an through examination of your eyes to determine if you do have glaucoma. If and when treatment is recommended, your doctor will design the most appropriate treatment option designed specifically for your eyes.
There is a lens in the eye, much like a lens in a camera. This lens focuses images on the back of the eye, the retina. At birth this lens, called the crystalline lens is clear. As we age, it yellows and begins to harden, and begins to cloud. When it becomes cloudy it begins to interfere with the quality of our vision. At this point, it is considered a cataract.
Increased quality of life is the #1 reason our patients have chosen to have LASIK, or Laser Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, with our practice for over 10 years. The choice to have LASIK is a big decision, and should not be made alone.
