Q: What happens at a dry eye exam?
A: To diagnose dry eye disease, the eye doctor can use a biomicroscope to examine whether there are plugged oil glands in the lid or any dry patches on the cornea present. A yellow stain called fluorescein can help us see how quickly the tears evaporate. We also look for eyelid issues like blepharitis (inflamed crusty lids) or Demodex mites which can worsen dry eye symptoms.
When you have LASIK eye surgery at TLC Laser Eye Centers, TLC Affiliated doctors of optometry will play an important role in your LASIK care team.
Dr. Maria Della Porta chooses to be associated with TLC because of the TLC because of its strong track record of safety, experience, and patient satisfaction.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in adults. When caught early, vision loss can be prevented. Did you know age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is more common than glaucoma? Get tested to detect AMD early, before it takes its toll on your vision.
People with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) often do not know they have the disease during its early stages. They may dismiss early warning signs, like trouble seeing at night, as part of the normal aging process. Ignoring these symptoms only delays diagnosis, which can lead to more vision loss.
We are offering a new test that helps us diagnose AMD at a very early stage and monitor disease progression. If you are experiencing problems seeing at night, or it is becoming increasing difficult to read in dim light, talk to us about scheduling an AdaptDx [adapt-dee-ex] Pro test.
If you experience loss of vision, double vision, swelling, infection or any eye emergency, contact us immediately for guidance. We’ll help you with the best treatment to prevent complications and promote long-lasting clear eyesight.
