Macular Degeneration Monitoring
Macular degeneration refers to age-related damage of the retina. There are two forms of macular degeneration: dry and wet. Wet macular degeneration can be treated with medication or laser techniques to improve vision and prevent further damage. Although dry macular degeneration cannot be cured, active monitoring and vitamin therapy can slow or minimize visual degradation.
Management of Glaucoma
Glaucoma causes high pressure inside the eye, damaging the optic nerve and resulting in vision loss. Regular ophthalmological exams can catch glaucoma in its early stages, leading to treatment to prevent loss of eyesight. Dr. Hornfeld offers glaucoma treatment options including eyedrops, and traditional or laser surgery.
