Diabetic Eye Disease is the Leading Cause of Blindness

These are our Diagnostic Testings for Early Detections & Treatment
Cataract the most common cause of vision loss in people over age 40 and is also the principal cause of blindness in the world.
We provide pre-surgical evaluations and monitoring of cataracts, referrals for surgical interventions, and post-operative follow up care.
Cataract is the clouding of the eye's natural lens. Types of cataracts include:
Macular Degeneration is the leading cause of vision loss, affecting more than 10 million Americans – more than cataracts and glaucoma combined.
At present, Macular Degeneration is considered an incurable eye disease.
Macular Degeneration is caused by the deterioration of the central portion of the retina, the inside back layer of the eye that records the images we see and sends them via the optic nerve from the eye to the brain. The retina’s central portion, known as the macula, is responsible for focusing central vision in the eye, and it controls our ability to read, drive a car, recognize faces or colors, and see objects in fine detail.
The human retina is made up of layers of cells that line the entire inside of the globe of the eye. The macula is the most sensitive part of the retina, located in the center. The macula is about the size of the head of a straight pin, and contains millions of light-sensing cells that provide sharp, detailed, “straight-ahead” central vision. When light strikes the back of the eye, the cells of the macula and the rest of the retina send electrical signals to the brain through the optic nerve. The brain translates the electrical signals into the images we see. When macula cells are damaged or destroyed, the images received by the brain are distorted.
There are some things you can do to reduce the risk of AMD. Research with large populations around the world has revealed a list of lifestyle factors that can be changed. Other things that contribute to AMD include your family history and age. While you can’t control these risk factors, it’s important to know about them.
