Protect Your Eyes Against Disease

Many people experience eye problems at some point in their lives. While some eye conditions are temporary and can go away on their own, several eye conditions need to be treated by an optometrist. 

If you’re experiencing vision issues, our team at Compass Eye Care can help diagnose and treat eye conditions and get your eye health and vision back on track.

How We Diagnose Eye Diseases at Compass Eye Care 

At Compass Eye Care, we take your eye health seriously. To ensure your eye health and vision are always the best they can be, we use the latest technology to provide our patients the care they need.

Digital retina screening is a progressive technology that takes high-resolution digital photographs of your retina. This helps us accurately diagnose and document many diseases.

OCT, or optical coherence tomography, is a high-resolution scanner that gives us the ability to see potential problems earlier than a standard exam would allow. A series of scans enable us to see beyond traditional equipment or the human eye can detect.

The Zeiss Clarus Retinal Exam is designed for the early detection of diseases that can affect not only eye health, but overall health as well. The system provides an ultra-wide field view of the retina, which is often one of the first places to show signs of hypertension, diabetes, cancer, glaucoma, retinal detachment, and other conditions.

Common Eye Diseases & Conditions 

Eye diseases can develop from a variety of factors. If you’re older, smoke, or have other health conditions, you may be at a higher risk of developing eye disease. The following eye conditions are some of the most common conditions we treat. 

Macular degeneration occurs when there is damage to the macula in your eye caused by aging. This eye disease affects your central vision, sometimes making it difficult to read or drive. AMD can be treated using medication or laser therapy.

A cataract occurs when the clear lens of your eye becomes clouded. When this happens, it can cause vision loss that progresses over time. If you have a cataract, your optometrist may update your prescription as necessary, but sometimes, cataract surgery is needed to repair vision.

Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that cause vision loss, typically as a result of increased pressure inside of the eye. When the pressure increases inside your eye, it can damage the ocular nerve, which sends image signals to your brain.

Glaucoma is usually treated using medications or laser eye surgery. 

Keratoconus is a condition that causes your cornea to bulge outward, causing blurred vision. Keratoconus is typically treated with glasses or contacts, but in some cases your optometrist may recommend laser eye surgery.
