Our patients find it comforting to have compassionate, concerned physicians who take a genuine interest in their eye health and provide valuable advice.
In addition to comprehensive eye exams for patients over age 5, we specialize in these conditions:
- Cataracts: Cataracts are a clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye which, over time, can lead to blurred vision and problems with reading, watching television, or working on your computer. Cataracts can occur at any age, but are a very common part of the natural aging process. Cataracts can be treated with surgery.
- Glaucoma: Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve, often related to elevated intra-ocular pressure. If not treated, glaucoma can damage the optic nerve and lead to blindness. Even people with normal eye pressure can develop glaucoma. When detected and treated at an early stage, glaucoma can be controlled, so make an appointment with your Elmquist Eye Group to discuss the treatment options.
- Diabetic Retinopathy: Every diabetic is at risk for developing diabetic retinopathy, but not all of them develop it. It is caused by changes in the blood vessels of the retina and may cause blurred vision and occasionally leads to blindness. Patients with significant diabetic retinopathy can avoid substantial vision loss if they are treated in time.
- Macular Degeneration: Often called Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), this disorder affects your central vision and is the leading cause of vision impairment in people aged 65 years and older. A comprehensive annual exam can help us detect the early signs of AMD and treat it, if necessary.
