Ocular Disease Management

Dr. Van Wyngaarden’s office is up-to-date on the latest technology and techniques for diagnosing and managing ocular disease as effectively as possible.

As optometric technology changes, it is even more important to select an eye doctor who has all the right optometry qualifications and follows the latest developments in eye care.

Utilizing cutting edge technology such as Digital Retinal Imaging and OCT (Ocular coherence tomography) we are diagnosing and managing, with greater precision, diseases like Glaucoma, Macular degeneration and Cataracts. Earlier and more precise diagnosis means earlier treatment and better outcomes. Great advances have been made in the treatment of these diseases.

 

 

  • Cataracts are a common cause of vision loss after age 55. Learn more about recognizing cataract symptoms, protecting your eyes and understanding cataract surgery.
  • Cataracts are so incredibly common that, by age 80, more than half of the population will either have cataracts currently or have had one removed.
  • Glaucoma is a condition that causes damage to your eye's optic nerve and gets worse over time, so nipping it in the bud will always be better for the person being tested.
  • The macula is the portion of the retina which provides sharp, central vision, and is involved in processing the fine details of the image. The breakdown of the macula is a disease called macular degeneration.
  • Diabetes and vision go hand in hand. If you have diabetes, you need to know that having this systemic disease puts you at greater risk for developing vision problems.
