Diabetes Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness in adults, occurring in 29.1 million individuals. It can occur in one or both of the eyes, and if not treated can result in permanent vision loss. Diabetes symptoms can vary from normal vision to complete vision loss. Often there are no symptoms in the early stages of the disease, nor is there any pain. Blurred vision may occur as the disease progresses. The earlier you receive treatment, the more likely treatment will be effective and vision can be maintained.

What is Macular Degeneration?

Dr. Joseph Myers, OD FAAO

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease associated with aging that gradually reduces central vision, making reading and driving difficult. AMD affects the macula, the part of the eye that gives you 95% of your vision, including color vision. The macula is located in the center of the retina where we get our central and most important vision. With AMD, the disruption of the macular tissues inhibits a sharp image, resulting in a painless, gradual loss of vision.

Can highly recommend Nationwide Vision. Received excellent care and all staff were friendly and professional. Everything was explained clearly to me and felt at ease going in for surgery. Will recommend to friends who are thinking of getting LASIK done to take the plunge.
