Types of Diseases

Below are some of the common eye conditions we treat at Total Vision and what our optometrists do to treat such conditions.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is caused by high intraocular pressure, or pressure inside the eye. Your eye doctor can catch and treat glaucoma early with regular eye exams, waiting until symptoms such as vision loss emerge can mean permanent damage to your sight. Your best defense against glaucoma is maintaining a regular eye care regimen by scheduling a comprehensive eye exam every 1-2 years.

Once diagnosed with this progressive eye disease, your optometrist may prescribe eye drops, laser treatments, or surgery to slow or stop the disease.

Age-related Macular Degeneration

This age related eye disease is most common in patients over 60. Over time, the central portion of the retina called the “macula” is damaged by blood leaking from damaged vessels or the breakdown of light-sensitive cells. 

Although there is no cure for macular degeneration, some medications and injections can slow the progression of the disease and allow you to maintain your sight for longer. If diagnosed, your optometrist will guide you toward the best possible management and treatments for you.

Cataracts

Cataracts are a cloudy lens on the eye that often develops with age. Although they are not painful, cataracts can inhibit your sight and cause blurred vision. 

Depending on the progression of your cataracts, your optometrist may prescribe glasses or magnifying glasses, or can recommend surgery.

Retinal Detachment

Retinal detachment is often painless, but can cause serious vision problems. Regular comprehensive eye exams can help ensure that any retinal damage is caught and treated by your optometrist before it becomes a full detachment. Symptoms of retinal detachment include floaters, the appearance of what look like flashing lights, or a “curtain” drawing over part of your visual field. 

Under the care of your qualified optometrist, retinal detachment may be treated with laser eye surgery. If you are at high risk for retinal detachment because of extreme nearsightedness, your Total Vision optometrist will discuss behaviors that can help mitigate the likelihood of a future retinal detachment. 

Pink Eye (Conjunctivitis)

One of the most common eye diseases, pink eye can be caused by viral or bacterial infections or by irritants such as chemicals or pollutants. Depending on the type of infection, your doctor may prescribe eye drops or ointments to speed healing.

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is a complication of diabetes that affects blood vessels on the retina in the back of the eye. Ideally, this condition will be avoided with careful diabetes and eye care maintenance. If diagnosed, your optometrist may recommend laser eye surgery to treat the problem and maintain your sight. 

Corneal Ulcer

A corneal ulcer is a painful ulcer on the lens of the eye that causes redness, irritation, sensitivity to light, and blurred vision. Improper contact lens care can cause a corneal ulcer. Treatments for a corneal ulcer include pain medication and antibiotics.

Lazy Eye (Amblyopia)

Usually diagnosed in childhood, amblyopia is diagnosed when the eyes do not work properly together or there is a problem of communication between one eye and the brain. Without treatment, it can result in permanent vision loss. Your optometrist may recommend eye patches, glasses, eye exercises, surgery, or some combination of these to treat amblyopia. When treated early, this condition is usually completely correctable. With Total Vision, you can achieve almost perfect vision and get the best in eye care Rancho Bernardo has to provide.
