Is your vision at risk?
There's only one way to find out.
Age related diseases like Glaucoma and Macular Degeneration (AMD) can cause permanent vision loss and seriously impair your quality of life unless they are caught early and treated effectively.
Our practice features a unique and powerful eye scanning system called SPECTRALIS (with OCT technology) that can help detect these potentially debilitating diseases in their earliest stages - and help monitor treatment effectiveness.
An eye examination is the only way to catch these conditions early - so call for an appointment today.
The cornea is responsible for 2/3 of the focusing of light into our eyes. The shape of the cornea (topography) is of critical importance in determining the quality of vision. Photokeratoscopy is a computerized procedure that is completely painless and carried out in seconds. It is a non-invasive test that maps out the curvature of the surface of your eyes with great precision. This provides us with valuable information about your corneal health as well as valuable measurements that assist in fitting specialty contact lenses, both soft and rigid gas permeable.
VISUAL FIELD TESTING (PERIMETRY)
An important factor in assessing your overall ocular health status is measuring the sensitivity of your side vision. Abnormalities in your visual field can be traced back to anywhere along the visual pathway, starting at the optic nerve, running the course of your brain and ending in the visual cortex where your brain processes the image that the eyes produce. Many neurological pathologies can present with a defect (or blind spot) in your peripheral vision. Diseases like stroke, diabetes, hypertension, trauma, and even brain tumors can be factors in side vision loss. Eye diseases such as Glaucoma can also produce specific types of visual field defects or loss of side vision light sensitivity.
BLEPHARITIS TREATMENT CENTER
Blepharitis is a common, chronic inflammation of the eyelid margins that can lead to other serious conditions such as Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), Dry Eye Syndrome, Styes (Chalazia) and difficulty wearing contact lenses successfully.
Dr. Pittaras is passionate about helping her patients combat this problem. Traditional treatments are rarely effective in this condition. Microblepharoexfoliation (MBE) is a new technique for removing the biofilm that accumulates on the eyelid margin. It is an in-office procedure performed by the doctor using a patented instrument called BlephEx (BlephEx LLC), a handheld device that rotates a surgical sponge soaked in an eyelid cleaning solution.
