Managing Eye Disease

We believe that diagnosing eye disease early is essential to providing treatment solutions that will help our patients overcome eye disease. Our comprehensive eye exams can help detect eye disease early and begin early treatment. 

Our approach to cataracts, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration ensures that our patients are informed throughout the treatment process. Eye disease can be stressful to manage, and we’re on your side to help make the diagnosis and treatment as efficient and comfortable as possible.

Exploring Eye Disease

Eye disease can come in a variety of forms. At McCauley Celin Eyecare Associates, we put our patients first when diagnosing and treating eye disease.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that damage your optic nerve. Glaucoma is especially damaging as your optic nerve carries the information your retina receives to your brain and provides vision.

The damage from glaucoma is usually caused by an abnormally high pressure in your eye. While this disease can occur at any age, it’s usually more common in older adults and is one of the leading causes of blindness for people over 60.

Some common signs and symptoms of glaucoma include:

  • Severe eye pain
  • Redness in your eye
  • Sudden vision disturbance
  • Blurred vision

To test for glaucoma, our team utilizes the Goldmann applanation tonometry test. Before your test, your eye doctor will use numbing eye drops. Your eye doctor will then place a slit lamp in front of you and proceed to flatten your cornea slightly to determine the pressure in your eye.

Our experienced team will carefully measure your eye pressure and get the proper pressure reading to begin treatment.

A cataract is a dense, cloudy area that can form in the normally clear lens of your eye. A cataract begins forming when proteins in your eye form clumps that may prevent the lens from sending clear images to your retina.

The appearance of a cataract can make it harder for you to perform daily activities such as reading or driving a vehicle.

Common signs and symptoms of cataracts include:

  • Blurry vision
  • Difficulty seeing at night
  • Double vision
  • An increased sensitivity to glare

Cataracts may develop slowly, and you may not notice the vision loss until they are at an advanced stage. Regular eye exams can help monitor vision concerns and assist with early detection. There are a few underlying causes of cataracts to be aware of, such as:

  • Smoking
  • Ultraviolet radiation
  • Diseases like diabetes
  • Previous eye trauma

Cataracts can progressively worsen and eventually affect your ability to perform daily activities such as reading or driving safely. When this occurs, cataract surgery is the only option to remove them.

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a progressive age-related condition that affects your central vision when natural aging causes damage to your macula. Untreated macular degeneration blurs your vision and is one of the leading causes of blindness in people over 55.

There are 2 main types of macular degeneration:

  • Dry AMD is the most common form of the disease and develops in 3 stages, early, intermediate, and late. Dry AMD progresses over several years, and while there is no cure, prevention methods such as monitoring your smoking habits and a healthy diet can help manage the disease.
  • Wet AMD is the less common form of the disease but is more severe. Wet AMD symptoms appear quickly and worsen rapidly, and occurs when abnormal blood vessels grow in the back of your eyes and damage your macula. Like dry AMD, monitoring your diet and smoking habits can help manage the disease.
