As the name suggests, macular degeneration (or age-related macular degeneration) typically affects the older population (over 60 years) and is currently the most common cause of blindness in this age group. Risks of developing the disease may include age, genetics, smoking, diet and diabetes, however you aren't always aware you have the disease. It is therefore important to have regular eye examinations and seek specialist advice at the first signs of the disease. Treatment will be determined by the type of macular degeneration the patient has developed.
Diabetic retinopathy can damage your eyes even before you notice changes in your vision. Damaging your peripheral and central retina (the macula). During the early stages of the disease, the blood vessels of the retina can either become blocked (causing blood supply shortage) or leak and hemorrhage (releasing blood and fluid into the vitreous (clear jelly in the eye)). Both of these progressions can drastically reduce vision and damage the retina. In the United States diabetes affects approximately 9.4% of our population or close to 30.3 million people with diabetes, with the disease being one of the most common causes of reduced vision.
A cataract is clouding of the eye's natural lens, which contributestoblurred, hazy and foggy vision. Located behind the iris and pupil; cataracts develop slowly as a natural process of aging. As you cataracts progress you may consider cataract surgery as a means to regain your lost visual clarity. Modern surgical techniques and custom selected intraocular lenses (IOL) provide patients various options to suit their needs. These advancements in technology allow many of our patients to be glasses free following cataract removal.
Glaucoma is a complex disease in which damage to the optic nerve leads to progressive, irreversible vision loss. Intraocular pressure within the eye is often associated with glaucoma as a symptom or warning sign for your doctor to do further testing. Glaucoma typically affects those aged over 40, but can occur at any age. If Glaucoma progresses, permanent vision loss can occur - however early detection can prevent or reduce such vision loss in most patients. EyeCare Associates of South Tulsa employs the latest techniques and equipment to detect and treat glaucoma at any stage.
Dr. Williams will conduct a series of evaluations that include an examination of the Meibomian Glands to determine the likely cause of your Dry Eye symptoms. Even though Dry Eye is usually a chronic condition, there are several treatment options your doctor can prescribe. There are roughly 30 million people in the United States and over 300 million worldwide who have been diagnosed with dry eye. Most have learned to live with eye discomfort and have become dependent on drops or other treatment methods that only offer temporary relief.
Sight isn't everyone's strong point - but it is our dominant sense. The freedom to participate in our daily activities can be disrupted if we're forced to wear glasses or contact lenses. Visual freedom is possible thanks to medical advancements, and laser vision correction is a gentle and effective way to meet your lifestyle needs. Today, most vision disorders can be effectively treated with modern laser vision correction methods. If you are over the age of 18, not pregnant, suffer from short-sightedness, long-sightedness and/or astigmatism, and your prescription has been stable for the past 12 months, then laser eye surgery may be right for you.
