Stay Ahead of Diabetic Retinopathy

We manage diabetic retinopathy, which occurs when diabetes damages the blood vessels in the retina. Our team's use of imaging tools like fundus photography, fluorescein angiography, and optical coherence tomography (OCT) allows us to diagnose and track the disease's progression. Treatment options may include laser therapy to seal leaking blood vessels or anti-VEGF injections to help reduce swelling in the retina.

Treating the Silent Thief: Glaucoma Management

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve, often leading to increased intraocular pressure (IOP). It's often called the "silent thief of sight" because it progresses without noticeable symptoms until there is significant damage.

TotalVision employs optical coherence tomography (OCT) to monitor optic nerve and peripheral vision. The management of glaucoma includes various treatment options, depending on the severity.

Helping You Manage Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a condition that affects central vision. It occurs when the macula, a small but vital part of the retina, deteriorates. We utilize advanced diagnostic tools like fundus photography and optical coherence tomography (OCT) to monitor the progression of the disease. There are two main types of macular degeneration:

  • Dry AMD: This is the most common type, characterized by the gradual breakdown of the macular tissue. While there is no cure, nutritional supplements may help slow its progression.
  • Wet AMD: In this form, abnormal blood vessels develop beneath the macula, leaking blood and fluid. Treatments may include anti-VEGF injections or photodynamic therapy to slow down or stabilize the condition.

Prescribing Topical Drugs for Glaucoma

Topical drugs are often a preferred treatment method for glaucoma management. Our practitioners carefully prescribe and monitor topical eye drops to effectively control intraocular pressure.

Prescribing Oral Medication

While topical eye drops are a standard method of managing glaucoma, there are instances when oral medications become vital parts of the treatment plan. Our optometrists will carefully evaluate your condition, considering the type and severity of glaucoma, your overall health, and any potential side effects.

Helping Keratoconus Patients See Clearly

Keratoconus is a progressive condition that distorts the cornea, leading to blurred vision. TotalVision employs advanced diagnostic tools to diagnose and monitor the condition. Treatment options are tailored to your unique requirements and may include specialty contact lenses to help correct vision.

Prescribing Oral Steroids

For specific ocular conditions, such as uveitis or optic neuritis, our team may prescribe oral steroids as part of your personalized treatment plan.

Cataracts are a common vision impairment where the eye's lens becomes clouded, severely reducing vision quality. We are skilled in co-management cataract surgery to help restore clear vision to our patients. Our approach involves a thorough pre-surgical assessment and a referral to trusted surgeons specializing in cataract removal. Our team provides dedicated follow-up care to monitor recovery and ensure optimal outcomes post-surgery.
