The Right Tech for the Job
The key to managing an eye health problem is detecting it as early as possible. And sometimes, the key to early detection is using comprehensive diagnostic technologies during an eye exam.
Some of the most common technologies we use include retinal imaging devices like optical coherence tomography and fundus photography, but we may use other techniques like tonometry and corneal topography to get a complete look into your eye health.

Common Eye Diseases & Conditions
The risk of developing an eye disease is different for everyone, and not every eye disease affects people the same way.
However, the best way to detect an eye disease is to have regular eye exams. If you have a higher risk of developing an eye disease, we may recommend more frequent eye exams so we can monitor your eye health and detect changes should they occur.
If you have an eye disease, we can personalize a strategy based on the disease in question, your eye health, and your lifestyle to help manage the issue and preserve your sight.
Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that affect the optic nerve. The optic nerve is responsible for sending information from your eyes to your brain. Glaucoma damages the optic nerve, leading to permanent vision loss.
Most types of glaucoma generally occur when your eye’s internal pressure (intraocular pressure or IOP) is too high, but some types of glaucoma can develop even when your IOP is within normal range.

Diabetic Eye Diseases
Diabetes can increase the risk of several eye diseases, including glaucoma and cataracts. However, the most common diabetes-related eye diseases include diabetic retinopathy and diabetic macular edema.
Please visit our Diabetic Eye Exams page to learn more about these diseases and how they can affect your eyes.
Cataracts are a common eye condition many people can develop as they grow older, and it may lead to blindness if it isn’t corrected.
Cataracts develop when proteins in your eye’s lens start to break down and clump together, causing the eyes to become more rigid and go foggy, obstructing your vision.
