Our ophthalmologists are experts in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of eye disease and vision problems. Our most common ophthalmology services include diabetic eye care, surgery to replace cataracts, and treatments for patients whose vision has been impaired by glaucoma.
Cataracts – the clouding of the lens of the eye – is a very common condition, especially among older adults. Same-day surgery to replace a cataract is a safe and effective procedure. Our ophthalmologists may also be able to correct your nearsightedness or farsightedness at the same time.
Glaucoma, a leading cause of preventable blindness, is especially prevalent among African Americans and Latinos. Early detection and treatment of glaucoma are critical – especially since many have no symptoms. Treatments we can provide include medicated eyedrops and in-office laser surgery.
Diabetic Eye Care
Diabetes can damage your nerves and blood vessels, including those in your eyes. It’s why diabetes is the No. 1 cause of vision loss in adults under the age of 65. The ophthalmologists at Scott Eye Care are experienced at working with patients with diabetes to help preserve their vision in the long term.
Chronic dry eye is an extremely common condition, especially for those who are middle-aged or older. The good news is there are many treatments available for dry eyes. Ask our ophthalmologists about the numerous ways to restore lubrication to your eyes – and which method may be right for you.
