Glaucoma – Silence thief of sight

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that lead to progressive damage of the optic nerve. As the optic nerve is key to the transmission of information from the eye to the brain, glaucoma can result in a gradual, irreversible loss of vision, and eventually blindness.

Are you at risk?
Anyone can develop glaucoma, but certain risk factors can put you at higher risk, such as:

  • Having increased IOP
  • Being over the age of 40
  • Race, especially Hispanic and African-American descent
  • Family history – primary open-angle glaucoma is hereditary
  • Certain medical conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure
  • Current or previous eye injuries
  • Steroid use

Unfortunately, glaucoma is a disease that continues to remain under-diagnosed. During your routine exam at Visio Eyecare, our doctor will access the health of your optic nerve and check your eye pressure. If diagnosed, our doctor is certified to treat glaucoma therapeutically.

Cataract Evaluataion and Co-management for Surgery:

A cataract is a clouding of the lens inside your eye typically caused by the natural aging process, secondary to exposure to UV light. However, cataracts can also be caused by certain medications, health conditions, or trauma. If you are experiencing:

  • Increased glare at night
  • Change in your perception of colors
  • Difficulty reading or watching TV that glasses don’t help
  • Gradual decrease in visual clarity

those are symptoms of cataract. Our doctor at Visio Eyecare will evaluate for the level of your cataract and work closely with the ophthalmologist to co-manage for your surgical care.


Diabetic/Hypertensive Comprehensive Eye Exam

Diabetic Retinopathy is the most common diabetic eye disease and a leading cause of blindness in American adults. Hypertensive Retinopathy is an eye disease that is caused by high blood pressure. They are both related to changes in the blood vessels of the retina. At first, you may not notice changes to your vision, but over time, diabetic and hypertensive retinopathy can get worse and cause vision loss. VISIO EYECARE works closely with your primary care physician to help monitoring your systemic health and its ocular manifestation.

A Comprehensive Dilated Eye Exam should be done at least once a year for Diabetic patients.
