Cataract Diagnosis and Treatment in VA
Cataracts are a natural clouding of the lens of the eye that happens to everyone over time. Almost all patients will undergo cataract surgery at some point due to advancements in the safety and precision of the surgery, which can restore excellent vision after the cataract has been removed. Early cataracts can be watched until they start to impact your life and function. The ophthalmologists at Dominion Eye Care perform hundreds of cataract surgeries a year and are very experienced at counseling you regarding the status of your cataract and whether it is time for you to consider having the cataract removed.
Glaucoma Treatment in VA
Glaucoma is an eye disease that causes damage to the eye based on an increased amount of pressure within the eye. The pressure causes damage to the optic nerve and the result can be a loss of peripheral and then central vision. It can also be painful. Dominion Eye Care Ophthalmologists in VA can diagnose glaucoma during an eye exam and offer solutions to alleviate the pressure and pain.
Treatments in VA for Patients Suffering with Diabetic Retinopathy
Diabetic eye exams are recommended yearly. Screening and detection of diabetic eye disease, also known as diabetic retinopathy, is a medical condition in which diabetes can damage blood vessels in the eye, which in turn may cause retinal damage. It is one of the leading causes of blindness in the US.
Macular Degeneration Patients in VA Call on Dominion Eye Care
Dominion Eye Care, serving patients in Manassas, Warrenton, and surrounding areas, has been diagnosing patients with macular degeneration for years. Macular degeneration, also known as age-related macular degeneration (ARMD or AMD), typically affects older adults and seniors. It is most common in people over the age of 50. Macular degeneration often accounts for blurred or no central vision in the eye. This can make it hard to recognize faces, drive or read. The physicians at Dominion Eye Care are trained to diagnose and detect AMD.
Virginia Patients Suffering from Corneal Disease
The cornea is the eye’s clear outermost layer. It protects and covers the eye and plays a huge role in focusing vision. Several factors can affect the cornea, such as eye injuries, scratches/abrasions, allergies, dystrophies, keratitis, and dry eye syndrome. These issues can account for pain in the eye, sensitivity to light, reduced and blurry vision, redness and inflammation in the eye, headache, nausea, and fatigue. The ophthalmologists at Dominion Eye Care can identify and provide solutions to treat corneal issues before they become a risk to your vision.
Dry Eye Disease Treatment at Dominion Eye Care
Dry Eye Syndrome (DES) is the condition of having dry eyes and can have a direct effect on the cornea. Your cornea is dependent upon tears to lubricate the surface of the eye. Without tears, the eye is vulnerable to scratches, tiny abrasions and possibly even infections. In some case it can change cells on the surface and cause the cornea to harden. Dominion Eye Care can provide solutions to treat your dry eyes, from artificial tears to prevent tear evaporation, medications, and steroid eye drops. The physicians may also perform punctal occlusion or plugs, as well as Prokera or amniotic membrane grafts for patients with severe dry eye disease.
