Eye Disease Management at Maine Optometry
At Maine Optometry, we believe in providing complete eye care for our patients. If you’re concerned about your eyes or are dealing with an eye disease, you don’t need to worry — our experienced team has you covered and can get your vision back on track.
The leading cause of vision loss for older adults, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), is an eye disease where aging damages the eye’s macula, a crucial structure in your eye that helps transmit the images you see to your brain. Damage from AMD is irreparable, but if detected early we can slow its progression — making regular eye exams a critical part of monitoring your eye health.
Glaucoma is the term for a group of conditions that cause damage to the optic nerve due to abnormally high intraocular pressure (IOP) in your eyes. This damage is irreversible, making glaucoma the leading cause of blindness for people over the age of 60, but the disease is manageable if detected early enough with regular eye exams and our advanced technology.
A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s natural lens, which usually happens due to the body’s natural aging process. Cataracts will gradually diminish your vision, but our team can help you manage them with corrective measures until cataract surgery is required.
Dry eye is a common, yet correctable condition where your eyes feel dried out and irritated, usually due to either not producing enough tears, or having tears that are of low quality. Our team can identify the root source of your dry eye disease and tailor a treatment plan to your specific needs.
Digital Eye Strain
We use computers and digital screens now more than ever, which means increased exposure to strain-inducing blue light. Our team has ways to manage this stress and provide you with comfortable vision, with options including blue light blocking lenses.
