Eye Disease Diagnosis & Management

There are a variety of eye diseases that can damage your eyes and vision.  Ranging from mild to severe, these diseases can—in some cases—progressively get worse over time. An eye disease treatment or management plan 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 exams are the best way to diagnose an eye problem and catch it before it progresses or worsens. Our comprehensive eye exams in New Haven County include a series of 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.   

During the initial tests, if our doctor suspects a specific eye disease, they may do additional tests to confirm their findings. Our doctor may also ask about your health history and family health history to determine your risk of developing eye diseases in the future. 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. 

If you’re diagnosed with an eye disease, our optometrists in Milford will discuss your treatment options with you and develop a treatment plan 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 at-home remedies you can try or if more advanced treatments like surgery are 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.
