Eye Disease Diagnosis & Management

There are a variety of eye diseases that can cause your eyes or vision harm. Ranging from mild to severe, these diseases can—in some cases—progressively get worse over time. Putting an eye disease treatment or management plan in place can help, but early diagnosis is key. Because some symptoms may go unnoticed in the early stages of eye disease, it is important to regularly get your eyes checked. 

Diagnosis of Eye Diseases   

Regular comprehensive eye examinations are the best way to diagnose an eye problem and catch it before it progresses or worsens. Our comprehensive exams include a series of different tests that analyze your overall eye health. They also identify a variety of eye diseases including glaucoma, dry eye, diabetic retinopathy, conjunctivitis, age-related macular degeneration, and more.   

Upon initial testing, if your doctor suspects a specific eye disease, they may do additional tests to confirm their findings. Your doctor may also discuss your health history and family health history with you at your exam to determine your risk of developing eye disease at a later date. In some cases, an eye disease can be progressive so early diagnosis can go a long way. At Lighthouse Vision, we diagnose eye diseases of all kinds and offer eye disease care in Milford, Connecticut to help you continue to live your best, most high-quality life.  

Eye Disease Treatment & Management Services   

Eye diseases and their treatment can vary depending on the specific condition and level of severity. Some eye conditions have viable treatment options and may be short-lived. Other conditions may be permanent and require a different management plan over time. Most require some type of ongoing eye disease care, but it may vary from simple remedies to more involved treatment depending on the condition. 

Our optometrists in Milford will discuss your treatment options with you if you are diagnosed with an eye disease and put a plan in place that works for your unique needs. They may also have you set up a follow-up appointment to monitor your eye disease and alter your treatment plan if circumstances require it. Your doctor will let you know if there are eye disease remedies you can try at home or if something like surgery is required.  

No matter the disease, early intervention is often best when it comes to these conditions. Early detection can play a big role in significantly slowing down the progression of the disease. Because some symptoms may go unnoticed in the early stages of eye disease, it is important to regularly get your eyes checked by a qualified optometrist. 

 At Lighthouse Vision in Milford, we are here to help you with all your eye care needs, including eye disease diagnosis and management, so that you can live your healthiest life.
