Conditions Treated

Memphis Eye & Cataract Associates Treat Eye Conditions

Good vision and good eye health are essential for your quality of life. Several problems can interfere with vision, making it difficult to do tasks and enjoy activities. Some conditions can even threaten your ability to see. We care for many eye conditions at Memphis Eye & Cataract Associates in Memphis, TN.

Refractive Errors

You may have difficulty seeing items up close. Refractive errors result from irregularities of the cornea, which bend light to reflect images seen. In addition, astigmatism may cause images to look blurry. Our Ophthalmologists can improve your eyesight with appropriate vision correction methods.

Cataracts

Cataracts are a disorder of the eye's lens that becomes cloudy due to aging tissues and exposure to ultraviolet light. It is a progressive condition that worsens over time and can cause vision loss. Surgery to remove the lens and replace it with an artificial lens is the standard treatment for cataracts.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is an eye disease that often occurs with aging. It causes blank spots on the periphery of your vision. Most people use eye drops to slow the progression of the disease. However, the client may require surgery for a stint in the back of the eye for more severe cases.

Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration is a condition that occurs in a wet and dry form. Symptoms include blurriness and dark spots in the central field of vision. Macular degeneration can become worse and lead to vision loss. Treatment for dryness of the eye consists of vitamin supplementation. If your condition is considered wet, your eye is treated with light therapy, eye drops, and surgery.

Diabetic Retinopathy

Individuals with diabetes must be cautious with their eyes. High glucose levels in the bloodstream can damage the fragile blood vessels in the eyes, which can lead to vision loss. Your eye doctor will monitor the condition of your eyes during your regular visits to determine if problems with the blood vessels have developed that require treatment.
