Exploring Eye Disease
At Danville Optometric Group, we want to help our patients not only be prepared to manage eye disease but also understand some of the different forms of eye disease. Being informed about the different types of eye disease can help our patients notice some of the early signs of developing eye disease. Our state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment is used to detect and manage various ocular diseases and conditions.
Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that cause progressive damage to the optic nerve. The optic nerve plays a vital role in our vision and carries the information the retina receives to your brain, providing you with vision.
Some common signs and symptoms of glaucoma can include:
- Blurred vision
- Patchy blind spots in peripheral or central vision
- Eye redness
- Halos around lights
- Severe headaches
For more information on glaucoma, including our diagnostic methods, please visit our glaucoma eye exams page.
Cataracts naturally develop when the normally clear lens of the eye becomes clouded. Cataracts begin forming when proteins in the eye form clumps that prevent the lens from sending clear images to the retina.
Common signs and symptoms of cataracts may include:
- Fading or yellowing of colors
- Increasing difficulty driving at night
- Sensitivity to light and glare
- Clouded, blurred, or dim vision
When cataracts start affecting your daily life and prevent you from going about your daily activities—surgery is the only option to remove them.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
There are 2 main types of AMD to look out for:
- Dry AMD is the more common form of the disease and occurs in early, intermediate, and late stages. Dry AMD more commonly progresses slowly over time.
- Wet AMD is the less common form of the disease and is known as the later-stage form of AMD. Wet AMD causes faster and more severe vision loss and occurs when abnormal blood vessels grow in the back of the eye and damage the macula.
Early detection and lifestyle choices such as a healthier diet or increased physical activity can help lower the risk or slow the development of AMD. Our team will conduct a thorough examination of your eyes and work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan.
Other Medical Conditions
Medical conditions like diabetes and hypertension can be detected during an eye exam. The eyes can hold early signs of these conditions, making it easier to diagnose during an eye exam.
Along with eye diseases, we will look for signs of other medical conditions during your eye exam to provide you with the most comprehensive picture of your health possible.
