Ocular Disease Management & Treatment

Our doctors have years of experience and training in the management of ocular diseases including glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts. Our office is equipped with the latest technology to assist our doctors in caring for our patients’ most complex and challenging conditions. We also offer 24 Hour Emergency care.

OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography):

The OCT is utilized to obtain a detailed image of the eye including the retina. It allows our doctors to observe the distinct layers within the eyes in great detail. It is used in the management of retinal diseases and glaucoma.

Visual Field:

Visual field testing evaluates a patient’s peripheral vision or field of view. It is useful in catching depression in vision that the patient may not be aware of. It is used to monitor conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and can even catch strokes.

Fundus Autoflourescence:

Fundus autofluorescence is a new technology used for fundus examination to better evaluate retinal conditions such as macular degeneration, diabetes, and retinitis pigmentosa. It utilizes laser to take advantage of optics and wavelengths to assess retinal disease.


Lower macular pigment is a leading risk factor for Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), which is the leading cause of severe vision loss in adults over the age of 55. There is now a device called the QuantifEYE that can measure your macular pigment and help determine your risk for macular degeneration.

In addition to the test results, we will assess other risk factors you may have including: age, family history, smoking, excessive sun exposure, light colored eyes, diabetes and hypertension. A baseline measurement is taken and the results are given to our doctors. If you happen to score low to medium (low MPOD increases risk of macular degeneration) our doctors may recommend supplementation to restore depleted levels of lutein and zeaxanthin in your macula. The doctor will be able to determine if your macular pigment has increased during follow-up visits.

Macular degeneration has no cure, but it may be preventable. By the time you notice symptoms, some damage has occurred and is irreversible. This important test may preserve your vision from the effects of macular degeneration.
