Know Your Risk Factors
No one is completely immune to eye disease, but certain factors can increase your risk of developing eye disease. These factors include:
- High blood pressure
- Long-term sun exposure
- Smoking or alcohol abuse
- Previous eye injuries or surgeries
Regardless of who you are, we use state-of-the-art technology to diagnose and treat eye diseases at the source.
We use optical coherence tomography (OCT) with filters to take cross-section pictures of your retina. This is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take the pictures. We also perform fundus photography with filters to see the inner structures of your eye.
This kind of advanced technology helps us catch signs of disease early and begin treatment before your vision is heavily impacted.
What We Watch For
Many eye diseases and conditions can develop without noticeable symptoms.
Subtle changes to your vision can be a sign of an eye issue that could have started many years earlier. The best way to detect and prevent eye disease is by scheduling and attending regular eye exams.
The earlier a disease is detected, the more effective treatment can be.
Glaucoma is sometimes called the silent thief of sight. It may not be apparent that you have glaucoma until you notice changes in your vision. Glaucoma is often associated with high pressure inside the eye which can lead to progressive loss of your peripheral or side vision if left untreated.
At Collingwood Optometry and Cwood Eyecare, we provide screening for glaucoma management and monitoring. Management and diagnosis are done through a multitude of tools, including pressure testing, visual field analysis, gonioscopy, and OCT.
A cataract develops in the lens of your eye. This lens is naturally clear, but cataracts cause it to become foggy which can impact the quality of your vision.
Fortunately, cataracts are very treatable. We use a variety of diagnostic tools to help identify early signs of cataracts and can monitor them, we will then refer you to an ophthalmologist for surgery.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease that affects a person’s central vision. It is a disease that can cause severe vision loss if untreated. Learn more about how we diagnose and treat AMD.
During a comprehensive eye examination, we look for signs and symptoms of many eye diseases and conditions, such as eye infections and diabetes.
