Focusing on Early Detection & Treatment

Eye exams aren’t just about updating your prescription, they can also assist us in the early detection of eye diseases. Detecting eye diseases in their early stages can improve the effectiveness of treatment and help prevent long-term vision problems.

Our goal is to help you maintain clear and healthy vision through timely eye exams and treatment plans based on your needs.

Understanding the Different Forms of Eye Disease

We understand that navigating and understanding eye diseases can be a daunting task. At Advanced EyeCare of Central Florida, we’re here to support you every step of the way. 

Our team will take the time to explain your diagnosis in detail and answer any questions you may have. We understand that each patient is unique, and that’s why we develop personalized treatment plans tailored to your specific needs.

Our office has multiple retinal screening devices, allowing us to capture detailed images of the retina to provide digital views of the back of the eye. Our non-dilated screening photos enable us to get a peek without shining bright lights in your eyes. This allows us to see what areas may need additional special testing in the future.

Glaucoma Management

Glaucoma is a group of eye disorders that cause damage to the optic nerve, which is responsible for sending visual information to your brain. Damage to the optic nerve can lead to vision loss and blindness if not detected and treated early.

The 2 most common forms of glaucoma can cause damage to the eyes due to high intraocular pressure, which is pressure within the eye.

Along with regular eye exams, we use retinal imaging to monitor your vision and accurately diagnose and manage glaucoma.

Cataracts develop when the normally clear lens of the eye becomes clouded. Cataracts begin forming when proteins in the eye form clumps that prevent the lens from sending clear images to the retina, the thin layer of tissue that lines the back of the eye.

Common symptoms of cataracts can include:

  • Blurry vision
  • Difficulty seeing at night
  • Seeing dim or yellowed colors

If cataracts progress to a later stage and prevent you from going about your daily activities, such as reading or driving, cataract surgery is the best and only option to remove them.

Diabetes can increase the risk of developing eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy, which is the primary vision loss concern for patients with diabetes. Some symptoms of diabetic retinopathy can include:

  • Blurry vision
  • A loss of central vision
  • Difficulty seeing at night

We use OCT to diagnose and manage diabetic eye disease.

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) affects the macula, which is responsible for sharp central vision, and is a leading cause of vision loss in older adults. Symptoms can vary depending on the type of AMD you have but may include:

  • Blind spots
  • Blurry or distorted vision
  • Difficulty seeing colors

Risk factors for AMD include age, family history, and smoking. We use OCT to help us diagnose and plan treatment for AMD.

Optical Coherence Tomography

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a diagnostic tool that uses light waves to take high-resolution images of the retina, optic nerve, and other structures inside your eye. 

These detailed images can help us diagnose and manage a variety of eye conditions, including glaucoma, AMD, and diabetic retinopathy. OCT is a noninvasive procedure that takes only a few minutes to complete.

Putting Your Eye Health First

Our team aims to provide comprehensive care for the different forms of eye disease. We combine patient education, years of experience, and diagnostic technology to manage a wide range of eye conditions and issues.
