Ocular Disease Diagnosis and Treatment
Crystal Vision Clinic provides medical care for ocular infections and inflammations such as keratitis (corneal inflammation), conjunctivitis (pink eye), uveitis (internal eye inflammation), as well as dry eye syndrome and eyelid conditions. Foreign body removal from the affected structures of the eye is also provided. If surgery is indicated for any condition, the patient will be referred to the appropriate surgeon.
Glaucoma and macular degeneration are common eye diseases often treated and managed at Crystal Vision Clinic. Each patient is screened appropriately for the existence of these conditions. Utilizing an OCT scan, our doctors are provided with color-coded, cross-sectional images of the retina. These detailed images are revolutionizing early detection and treatment of eye conditions such as wet and dry age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal detachment and diabetic retinopathy.
Evidence has shown that those patients with diabetes and hypertension are at a higher risk for developing glaucoma. Proper screening with both the Optomap® system and OCT scan will ensure the most comprehensive eye care for the patient.
Eye care is a vital component of care in patients with cardiovascular, neurological, autoimmune and many other systemic diseases. Diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), hypercholesterolemia (high cholesterol), and thyroid dysfunction are all conditions that may cause problems in the eyes and affect vision. Our office works closely with other hospital health care providers and clinics to provide dilated eye exams. We also will communicate with your other health care providers when necessary.
