Detect & Deal with Eye Diseases

Regular eye exams can be your early warning system for many common eye diseases, but if you’re diagnosed with one, you’ll need expert professional care. Your local Total Vision practice can identify the signs of eye disease, provide an accurate diagnosis, and recommend an effective plan to treat or manage the problem.

Why Early Diagnosis Matters

Early diagnosis can significantly reduce the risk of vision loss from many eye diseases. Your Total Vision optometrist has the experience and advanced diagnostic technology to catch the early signs of common eye diseases long before their symptoms become obvious.

Once your eye doctor has diagnosed you with an eye disease, they can recommend treating it and controlling its effects. Our eye doctors have the knowledge and resources to deal with a wide variety of eye diseases and conditions.

Common Eye Diseases

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is a common diabetic complication that damages the blood vessels in your retina. It can cause permanent vision loss, and should be carefully managed.

Common symptoms of diabetic retinopathy include:

  • Floaters
  • Blurred vision
  • Blank or dark spots in your field of vision
  • Poor night vision
  • Seeing colors differently

The macula is the part of your retina responsible for central vision. Over time, the macula can deteriorate and cause your central vision to worsen. Macular degeneration can eventually lead to severe vision problems that prevent you from driving, reading, or recognizing faces.

Macular degeneration typically affects people over 50 and may cause the following symptoms:

  • Visual distortions (such as straight lines appearing bent)
  • Impaired central vision in one or both eyes
  • Difficulty seeing in low-light conditions
  • Printed words appearing more blurry over time
  • Difficulty telling faces apart
  • Obvious blurry or blind spots in your field of vision

Glaucoma is a progressive eye disease that affects the optic nerve. This disease normally results from high pressure inside the eye, although it can have other causes. Glaucoma is the second most common cause of blindness in the world and leads to total blindness when left unmanaged.

Since many kinds of glaucoma are unlikely to show symptoms before permanently impairing your vision, regular eye exams are often the best line of defense against this disease. Using leading-edge diagnostic technology, your Total Vision eye doctor can detect early signs of glaucoma before it affects your vision and can recommend ways to slow it down.

Conjunctivitis is also known as “pink eye” since it often turns the whites of the eye pink or red. Conjunctivitis occurs when the normally transparent membrane that protects and lubricates your eye becomes inflamed.

The most common types of conjunctivitis include:

  • Viral: Viral conjunctivitis is often caused by the same viruses responsible for the common cold and can spread via coughing, sneezing, or hand-to-eye contact. In addition to being highly contagious, viral conjunctivitis can increase your sensitivity to light and make your eyes produce watery discharge.
  • Bacterial: This extremely contagious form of conjunctivitis results from bacterial infections. Bacterial conjunctivitis can cause yellow or green discharge to form in your eyes during sleep, which can make your eyelids stick together once you wake up.
  • Allergic: Exposure to pollen, mold, or other allergens can result in this form of conjunctivitis. Allergic conjunctivitis isn’t contagious, but it can cause unpleasant symptoms like eyes that itch, water, or burn.
  • Chemical: Eye contact with chemicals such as smoke, fumes, or toxic liquids can cause chemical conjunctivitis. Chemical conjunctivitis isn’t contagious, but it’s a potential eye emergency that requires immediate medical attention. Please contact your Total Vision eye doctor if your eyes have made contact with chemicals of any kind.
