Whether you are in your golden years or you’re just embarking on life after college, ocular diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and cataracts can occur at any time in your life. It’s true, though, that these conditions are most often associated with the aging process. However, regular eye exams by the eye doctors at Berlin Family Eyecareensures that any issues are detected quickly.
If you have glaucoma, macular degeneration or cataracts, the effective management of these conditions is a crucial aspect in protecting the health of your eyes — now and long into the future. There isn’t a cookie cutter approach for the management of these common ocular diseases. Instead, the doctors at Berlin Family Eyecare develop a treatment plan based on your individual needs, the health of your eyes, your lifestyle, family history and other important aspects.
While there are a number of different ways to manage these conditions from medications to surgery, the right approach is determined by the recommendations of your eye doctor. Sometimes this means that you’ll simply have regular eye exams during which the progression of the disease is checked. In other cases, further interventions designed to slow the disease or address its side effects might be necessary. It’s important to follow your doctor’s recommendations, keep your appointments and promptly inform the staff of any changes to your vision.
