Early Detection Is Key

Many eye diseases progress without symptoms, making early detection crucial for preventing vision loss. Our team is always on the lookout for innovative technologies to enhance our diagnostic and treatment capabilities.

Our comprehensive eye exams, using technology like optomap and OCT imaging, allow us to identify potential issues in their earliest stages.

Conditions We Diagnose & Manage

Early detection and education play an important role in what we do at Precision Eye Care. Eye diseases and other conditions can affect your eye health and vision in a number of different ways. 

Everyone’s eyes are unique, and so are the potential risks for different conditions. By discussing some common eye issues together, we can see if any early signs might apply to you and why regular eye exams are important for catching problems early.

Our team is always happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have about the different forms of eye disease or conditions you may be dealing with.

Cataracts develop when the normally clear lens of the eye becomes clouded, causing blurry vision, faded or yellowed colours, and difficulty seeing at night.

Cataracts begin when proteins in your eye clump together, partially blocking light from reaching your retina, the thin layer of tissue that lines the back of your eye. Cataracts often occur due to natural age-related changes in the eyes.

If cataracts progress to a later stage and prevent you from going about your daily activities, such as reading or driving, we may recommend cataract surgery. Our clinic offers pre-cataract surgery evaluations and post-op care to support you.

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a progressive disease that damages your macula and affects your central vision. This damage can make daily activities like reading and driving much more difficult.

There are 2 common types of AMD:

    • Dry AMD is the more common form of the disease and occurs when the macula thins with age.

    • Wet AMD is less common and can cause faster and more severe vision loss. Wet AMD occurs when abnormal blood vessels grow in the back of the eye and damage the macula.

We use OCT and visual field testing to detect and manage AMD.

Flashes and floaters happen when the vitreous gel, the jelly-like substance that fills your eye, breaks down and casts tiny shadows on your retina.

While occasional flashes and floaters are common, suddenly seeing a lot at once can sometimes indicate a retinal tear. We can assess these symptoms and recommend the appropriate course of action.

If you experience a significant increase in flashes and floaters, especially accompanied by a curtain-like shadow in your vision, seek medical attention immediately.

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve. The optic nerve sends visual information from your eyes to your brain, so any damage can lead to vision loss and blindness.

There are different types of glaucoma, but most of them develop without noticeable symptoms and can lead to permanent vision loss if not caught and managed. High intraocular pressure (IOP) is a significant risk factor for glaucoma, so we can measure it during every routine eye exam.

Diabetes increases the risk of eye diseases like glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy.

Diabetic retinopathy damages the retinal blood vessels and is the primary cause of vision loss for those with diabetes.

Signs and symptoms of diabetic retinopathy include:

    • Blurry vision

    • Black spots or holes in your vision

    • A loss of central vision

    • Difficulty seeing at night

We use OCT to assist with the early detection of diabetic eye issues.

Keratoconus affects the shape of the cornea, leading to distorted vision. We can diagnose keratoconus and recommend appropriate management strategies, including specialty contact lenses.
