If you have diabetes or diabetes runs in the family it is very important to have an eye exam.Early signs of diabetes can be detected during your eye exam so treatment can begin to prevent future loss of your vision.

Eye Floaters are tiny spots or flecks that can be seen drifting in your line of vision. It is very important to immediately come in for an exam if you see floaters since this can be a sign of a retinal detachment.

A retinal detachment or tear can led to loss of vision if not properly treated.

Age related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in the people who are 65 years or older.Macular degeneration is caused by the degeneration of the central area of the retina or macula,responsible for focusing central vision in the eye andimportant for reading, watching TV and driving a car. Although there is no cure for macular degeneration, there are treatments that can slow the progress of this disease.

If you have any of the symptoms described above please call our office and make an appointment with Dr. Dave Greenman for early treatment to prevent vision loss.
