Conditions Treated by Our Madison Ophthalmologists
An ophthalmologist is a doctor that can offer a variety of eye services, ranging from treatment of eye diseases and routine eye exams to eye surgery. While our practitioners can perform typical services and help patients receive the vision correction they need, our doctors also underwent specialized training for eye surgical procedures. At Eye Group in Madison, we offer various ophthalmology services to keep your eyes comfortable and seeing clearly.
Glaucoma causes vision loss due to damage to the optic nerve. The most common type of glaucoma, open-angle glaucoma, develops gradually. In advanced stages, it can cause tunnel vision or blindness. Our professionals can detect and manage glaucoma before conditions worsen.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a type of vitreoretinal disorder that occurs when the center of the retina (called the macula) gradually degrades. There are two main types of age-related macular degeneration, wet and dry. Wet AMD develops due to the growth of abnormal leaky blood vessels behind the macula. Dry AMD is associated with small yellow deposits on the macula called drusen. AMD can be managed or slowed with services like nutritional modifications and laser therapy.
A cataract is a condition that causes abnormal clouding over the lens inside the eye. This can lead to symptoms like blurry vision and halos around bright lights. Our eye doctors are skilled in cataract removal, which can significantly improve vision.
Refractive errors like astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness happen due to irregularities in the shape of the cornea or eyeball, which changes the way light enters the eye. These common eye conditions are treatable with options like LASIK surgery and prescription eyewear.
Also called lazy eye, amblyopia is a common childhood eye disorder associated with reduced vision in one eye due to abnormal development of the visual processing centers in the brain (rather than a problem with the eye itself). Patching, corrective eyewear, and other techniques can help.
Diabetic Eye Disease
Conditions like diabetic retinopathy and macular edema are common yet preventable types of vision loss in people with diabetes. Our Madison ophthalmologist team can identify early warning signs of diabetic eye disease and implement individualized treatment.
Dry eye syndrome occurs when something interrupts the quality or quantity of protective tear film over your eyes. Artificial tears may not always be enough to help. If you are suffering from dry, itchy, gritty, red, or watery eyes, our ophthalmologists can help by identifying the cause of your dry eye and prescribe personalized treatment.
Keratoconus is a common corneal disorder that happens when the cornea becomes cone-shaped. Interventions like orthokeratology improve the corneal shape and maximize vision.
