Management of Ocular Diseases

Eye doctors and staff at Wink Eyecare Boutique are committed to providing our patients with the best diagnosis, prevention and treatment of eye diseases that cause vision loss, such as diabetic eye disease, glaucoma and macular degeneration. Earlier and more precise diagnosis leads to better outcomes. That’s why our Potomac Eye Care Clinic makes it a policy to ensure that all staff members are up-to-date on the latest technology and techniques, such as the iWellness Exam, to make your visit as comfortable and effective as possible. As optometric technology changes, it is even more important to select an eye doctor who has all the right optometry qualifications and follows the latest developments in eye care.

Great advances have been made in the treatment of these eye diseases

  • Diabetes is a leading cause of blindness and vision loss in the United States. People with diabetes are at a higher risk of glaucoma and cataracts, but diabetic retinopathy is arguably the chief concern when it comes to eye health.
  • Cataracts are a common cause of vision loss after age 55. Learn more about recognizing cataracts symptoms, protecting your eyes and understanding cataract surgery.
  • Glaucoma testing involves measuring internal eye pressure and a detailed scan of the retina for signs of disease.
  • The macula is the portion of the retina which provides sharp, central vision, and is involved in processing the fine details of the image. The breakdown of the macula is a disease called macular degeneration.
  • Anyone who was diagnosed with type 1 or type 2 diabetes requires an additional test for their eye exam.
  • Diabetes and vision go hand in hand. If you have diabetes, you need to know that having this systemic disease puts you at greater risk for developing vision problems.
