Early diagnosis and treatment are the best prevention against the harmful effects of glaucoma. Glaucoma refers to a group of ocular diseases that damage the optic nerve of your eye, destroying sharp vision. At Risk Optometric Associates, PA, we will test your eyes during our comprehensive eye exams, by using a tonometer to check for increased eye pressure. Treatment generally involves eye drops, laser surgery, conventional surgery or a combination of all of these methods. Glaucoma may be symptomless, which is why it is critical to have complete eye evaluations done regularly after age 40. Left untreated, glaucoma can lead to vision loss.
Cataracts cause a clouding of the lens of your eyeball, which blocks clear images from appearing on your retina. Depending upon the severity of your condition, blurred vision will range from mild to extreme. Fortunately, cataract surgery has a very high success rate at restoring functional vision. During the procedure, your clouded natural lens will be removed and replaced with a synthetic, transparent lens. Our eye doctors, at clinics in Fort Bragg, Fayetteville, Hendersonville, Hope Mills, Aberdeen, Raeford and Jacksonville, NC, will treat and manage your cataracts so that you enjoy crystal-clear eyesight once again.
Early detection of macular degeneration is critical for slowing the progression of this disease that presently has no cure. This eye disease affects your central vision and damages your ability to process fine detail. Treatment depends upon the type of macular degeneration that we diagnose, and it ranges from prescribing a mix of medications to injecting drugs directly into the eye to laser surgery. If you are diagnosed with macular degeneration, our eye doctors at Risk Optometric Associates, PA, will meet with you to discuss the most appropriate, helpful options to preserve your vision.
