Ocular disease isn’t just a nuisance. Depending on which one it is, and how advanced it has become, the results can be vision loss, optic nerve damage, hemorrhaging of the blood vessels in your eyes, or complete blindness. Our eye specialist in Mamaroneck, Dr. Chris DiGiorgio, is dedicated to your eye health, and it’s why our office offers ocular disease assessment among our other valuable eye care services.
When we refer to ocular disease, we’re focusing on the most common ones, which are glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. Although each of these eye diseases is very different, they all share two essential aspects that are important to know about: first, they develop and progress through their early stages without any noticeable symptoms. And second, they cannot be cured. Don’t be alarmed, though. Our eye specialist in Mamaroneck, with prompt diagnosis, can develop a plan of treatment and management that will lead to the best possible outcome. It is highly recommended that you come in for an ocular disease assessment once per year, therefore ensuring that these conditions can be detected before they are able to result in serious consequences that are not reversible. Our office utilizes advanced equipment for diagnostic purposes, so you can be confident that your results will be accurate. Treatments can range from the simple, such as a prescription for special eyeglasses or contact lenses; to surgical solutions. There is, of course, a great deal of space between those extremes, and as part of the assessment, our eye specialist in Mamaroneck will discuss with you what is the most appropriate way to address the disease, and your options, if any.
Please reach out to our office so that we can schedule an appointment for you to come in for an annual ocular disease assessment. There’s no good reason to risk the safety of your eyes or the chance of losing vision permanently.
