Diabetic Eye Care

Diabetes is the third leading cause of blindness in the U.S. If you’re diabetic, you probably already know that diabetes and eye and vision damage go hand in hand. Diabetic retinopathy damages blood vessels in the retina and it can lead to diabetic macular edema. Without a well functioning retina, eyesight becomes blurry and progressively worsens. Approximately 24,000 diabetics go blind each year. With the right diabetic eye care, it doesn’t have to happen to you. Ninety percent of diabetes-related blindness can be avoided. All it takes are regular eye exams and preventative diabetic eye care at Northland Eye Specialists.

Glaucoma Treatment

Glaucoma results from too much pressure in the eye, which damages your retina and optic nerve. There are few symptoms at the onset, yet glaucoma can cause blindness in three to 15 years. The earlier we diagnose and begin a course of treatment, the better chance we have of slowing or stopping vision loss. Northland Eye Specialists has an arsenal of medical and surgical treatment options including eye drops, prescription drugs, laser surgery and traditional surgery to treat glaucoma.

Macular Degeneration Treatment

Macular degeneration is the leading cause of legal blindness in patients over 65. It affects the part of the retina responsible for central vision, so even though peripheral vision is clear, your center vision is impaired. Northland Eye Specialists weighs many factors before deciding on your course of macular degeneration treatment: the type (wet or dry), the stage of the disease, its progression rate and your lifestyle. Treatment options include laser surgery, photodynamic therapy, vision aids, diet changes and nutritional supplements or a combination of several. Our ultimate goal is to help you stay independent and living a normal routine.
