The most common ocular diseases include glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. At ClearLight Eyecare, we use the latest technology in the industry to accurately diagnose and prevent a variety of common ocular diseases. Since many eye conditions develop gradually over time, we recommend regular eye exams for early detection and treatment.
A condition that damages the optic nerve (nerve that connects the eye to the brain) usually caused by high eye pressures.
Vision loss starts from the periphery and occurs slowly. We use cutting edge equipment to scan the health of the optic nerve and assess your peripheral vision. If detected early, glaucoma can be successfully managed and controlled.
Occurs when the lens in the eye becomes cloudy and opaque which results in blurry or dim vision.
Cataracts can impact your daily activities such as reading, driving, or even watching your favourite show. The condition progresses slowly but can typically be managed with prescription glasses in the early stages. However, for more advanced cases, we will refer you to our local ophthalmologists for a cataract consultation.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD):
An eye condition that damages the macula which is responsible for our central vision.
As we age, the macula starts to wear down, which can affect our ability to see fine detail and lead to severe vision problems. This condition can be diagnosed with our state-of-the-art equipment, and we can start managing it earlier to prevent vision loss.
A condition where signs of uncontrolled diabetes are detected in the eye, such as bleeding and swelling in the retina.
Diabetes can cause long-term visual impairment if left untreated. At ClearLight Eyecare, we encourage individuals with diabetes to have regular comprehensive eye exams to make sure their eyes and overall health remains robust.
