A cataract is the clouding of the natural lens in the eye. Most cataracts develop with natural aging. They can also develop from injury to the eye. Some infants are born with cataracts, referred to as congenital cataracts.
If your eye exam reveals the onset of cataracts, Dr. Mack will review with you the various choices most appropriate for your type of cataracts. Only the highest quality lenses are used to replace the natural, cloudy lens.
Thorough eye exams will screen for all forms of glaucoma. This disease normally has few or no symptoms until some vision is permanently lost. If caught early, glaucoma is treatable through medication, laser management, and if needed, surgery.
Glaucoma is a disease characterized by elevated pressure in the eye. If you have a family history of glaucoma or diabetes, then you are at a higher risk of developing glaucoma. A thorough eye exam every one to two years can catch this disease before irreversible damage to vision occurs.
Routine, thorough eye exams will screen for the development of age-related macular degeneration. If you are diagnosed with this condition, Dr. Mack will perform regular evaluations using photographic and/or ultrasound progression analysis. He will also review the treatment options available to you, which may include vitamin supplements and injection therapies.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a common eye condition caused by deterioration of the macula, a small area near the center of your retina. The macula is responsible for sharp, central vision and is necessary for viewing objects straight ahead of us. Risk factors for the development of AMD are age, smoking, race and family history.
The most common diabetic eye disease is caused by changes in the blood vessels of the retina. Many in the early stages of this condition may not notice changes in their vision. If you have diabetes, it is important that you have a thorough eye exam every year to monitor the health of your retina.
Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of preventable blindness in American adults. Early detection is crucial to managing this condition properly.
Dry eyes is a condition that affects many people of all ages. Dr. Mack will evaluate the condition to determine the cause of your dry eyes and help you manage the condition with appropriate treatment.
