Many eye diseases can develop without any symptoms and routine eye examinations are important for detecting problems before they become a long-term condition. We use the latest diagnostic equipment to screen for eye diseases such as cataracts, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy.
Our eyes are also a window to our overall health. Eye examinations can reveal many underlying health conditions. Your retina (located in the back of your eye) is the only place where blood vessels can be seen directly. This means that in addition to eye conditions, signs of other diseases such as stroke, heart disease, hypertension and diabetes can also be seen in the retina. There is also a well-know connection between inflammatory diseases and inflammation in the eye. Inflammatory diseases such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Thyroid/Grave’s Disease, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and lupus can have eye manifestations.
