DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT OF EYE DISEASES IN PONTE VEDRA

According to the Glaucoma Research Foundation, more than 60 million people worldwide suffer from glaucoma. More interestingly, more than half of the people affected by glaucoma do not even know that they have the disease! Since glaucoma has no symptoms and causes no pain, many people don't realize that they have glaucoma until they begin to experience vision loss. Without proper treatment, glaucoma can eventually cause blindness.
 

Our glaucoma specialist in Ponte Vedra is proud to offer the most advanced glaucoma detection technology available, the GDxVCC. This device detects structural changes in the retinal nerve fiber layer of the eye, which is where early signs of glaucomatous structural damage appear.

The following risk factors may put you at a greater risk for developing glaucoma:
 
Family history. If you have a family history of glaucoma, you may be at a higher risk for the disease.
Age. Once you turn 40, you may be at higher risk of developing glaucoma. For certain ethnic groups, such as African-Americans, the risk of developing glaucoma is much higher and occurs at a younger age than that of other ethnic groups.
Medical Conditions. Diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease may put you at a higher risk for developing glaucoma.

DIAGNOSING CATARACTS IN PONTE VEDRA

The natural lens in your eye slowly becomes less clear as you age. When protein in the eye lens builds up, vision will become impaired. Light is prevented from passing clearly through the lens, causing some loss of vision.

At St. John's Eye Associates, we can diagnose and manage your cataract treatment at our Ponte Vedra location.  When cataracts affect your vision to the extent that you cannot read or see distant objects comfortably, we recommend cataract surgery. Our office is proud to co-manage with cataract specialists that are proven experts in their field. 

DIABETIC EYE CARE IN PONTE VEDRA

Even if your doctor checks your eyes during your diabetes treatment, you should have a diabetic eye exam every year. Diabetes often stimulates the growth of new blood vessels in the back of the eye, which ultimately leak and damage the retina. This is called diabetic retinopathy. If this condition is discovered early, laser treatment can destroy these extra blood vessels. Therefore, eye care for diabetics is extremely important. At our office, we have the latest instruments used to detect changes in the back of the eye. Contact us to schedule your diabetic eye exam today!
