Ocular Disease Eye Care North

Ocular diseas management

Our doctor is a medical optometrist licensed to treat and manage diseases of the eye such as Glaucoma and Macular Degeneration. When the retina is viewed with standard examination techniques, only the surface of the retina is seen. Our office offers optical coherence tomography (OCT) technology that allows viewing of the individual layers of the retina and measurement of retinal thickness. This allows the doctor to diagnose ocular pathology beneath the retina's surface. This is especially useful for conditions such as Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma, Retinal Vascular Occlusions, Diabetes, and Macular Holes. The testing is non-invasive and painless. In many cases, this technology may be covered by medical insurance such as Medicare.
