Diagnosis & Treatment of Eye Disease
At Erie Optical, we believe that regular eye exams are an important part of our patients' overall health and well-being regimen. Our exams allow Dr. Waldman to monitor your eyes and detect disease and other conditions in their earliest stages. Early diagnosis and treatment can make a significant difference in the effectiveness of treatment and can also help you to retain your vision.
Conditions such as Glaucoma, Cataracts, and Retinal Diseases such as Macular Degeneration, often develop without causing any noticeable symptoms. Regular eye exams let us detect, diagnose, treat, and manage the most common eye conditions and diseases. If you are experiencing a decrease in the quality of your vision, or are overdue for your regular exam, call us today to schedule an appointment.
As we grow older we are more likely to experience some type of eye or vision problem. Many conditions are easily treated when detected in their earliest stages, and we encourage our patients to schedule an appointment if they are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
These symptoms can be a sign of serious conditions that require immediate attention. In addition to glaucoma and cataracts, a retinal disease is another common ailment that affects eyesight as we grow older. Retinal conditions are often undetectable without an exam, and the most common cases are effectively treated when detected in the earliest stages.
If you have a family history or retinal diseases, such as Diabetic Retinopathy, Retinal Tears or Detachment, Macular Degeneration, or Retinitis, we strongly advise that you maintain a habit of regular eye care. After detection and diagnosis, we will begin treatment. Dr. Waldman, your Mentor eye doctor can begin treatment with antibiotics, corrective lenses, or provide surgery when needed for these eye disease conditions.
Vision care requires regular eye exams, and our practice is here to provide the comprehensive and effective treatment that will protect your eyesight for many years to come. Call Erie Optical today at (440) 255-7727 to schedule an appointment with your Mentor eye doctor. We are conveniently located at 8900 Mentor Avenue.
