Here at Melrose Eyecare Center, we are dedicated to assisting patients in the diagnosis and treatment of ocular disease.
We are proud to provide diagnosis, treatment, and management of diseases that affect the eye and visual system. Our doctors are board certified to diagnose and treat many eye diseases.
Dry Eye Syndrome: Affecting almost 10 million Americans, dry eye syndrome can be caused by a lack of tears or, in some cases, poor quality tears. Dry eyes are typically a lifelong problem. You can treat the symptoms, but there is no cure for the cause of the disease.
Glaucoma: Glaucoma is a very common eye disorder affecting millions. It is typically caused by too much pressure inside the eye, which can lead to gradual loss of peripheral vision.
Macular Degeneration: Macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in Americans over the age of 65. The macula allows us to see the fine detail of what is directly in front of us. When this begins to deteriorate, it can lead to loss of central vision.
Diabetic Retinopathy: High blood sugar can damage the blood vessel walls. As a result, the blood vessels begin to leak fluid or bleed, causing the retina to swell and form deposits known as exudates. Vision can be lost if those spots are not watched and treated. Here at our office, we carefully examine the back of your eyes to manage this.
Cataract: Cataracts are a cloudiness that occurs in the lens of the eye. We can diagnose and provide treatment options for patients so that they can get their vision crisper and clearer.
Our doctors have extensively studied eye diseases, their effects on the eyes, and their diagnosis and treatment. We use state-of-the-art equipment and the latest technology to treat a wide variety of eye diseases.
