Eye Disease Treatment Offered by Your Optometrist in Mesa and Scottsdale

Retina Fundus PhotosCaring for our eyes is something many of us overlook. It’s important to remember, however, that our eyes need to be cared for just like every other organ in our bodies.  The passionate and caring professionals at Riviera Opticare Inc. provide an unparalleled standard of care in treating whatever eye disease you may have.

Common Types of Eye Disease

There are many different types of eye disease, but some of the most common are:

                • Macular Degeneration

                • Glaucoma

                • Diabetic Retinopathy

                •Dry Eye Syndrome

An eye doctor in Scottsdale or an eye doctor in Mesa from Riviera Opticare can diagnose and help treat all of these conditions. 

Age-Related Macular Degeneration or AMD

This is a disease where the macula, the central portion of the retina, deteriorates over time, leading to partial vision loss or even blindness.  The leading cause of this deterioration is age, but smoking, high blood pressure, obesity, and genes also all contribute to determining whether or not someone develops this condition.

Although no cure yet exists for any variation of AMD, your doctor can work with you by creating a lifestyle plan to both cut down on the risk factors for the disease and help prevent its progression.  The three key things everyone can do to prevent the onset of AMD are eating a healthy diet, engaging in routine exercise, and wearing sunglasses to filter out harmful light.

Glaucoma

The eye is filled with fluid.  Our bodies constantly produce, replace, and drain these fluids to keep the eyes healthy and functional, but sometimes things go wrong. An increase of pressure within the eye, caused by either an overproduction of fluid or faulty drainage may cause damage to the optic nerve over time.  This is what causes glaucoma.

Glaucoma can be treated in a number of ways, from eye drops and pills, to laser and traditional surgery. Ask your optometrist which treatment suits you best.

Diabetes Related Eye Disease

Diabetes is a terrible disease and those who suffer from it almost invariably develop complications with their eyes. Diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema (DME), cataracts, and glaucoma are all risks for diabetes sufferers.

Vision loss is often permanent, whether it stems from diabetes or not.  That is why routine eye examinations are one of the most important preventative measures to be taken in proper eye care.

  • My Internal Medicine Doctor recommended Dr. Susan Reckell for my eye care. After a very extensive first eye exam with the doctor, I spent time with the eye care specialist who did not rush me and helped me choose a great pair of glasses within my budget. Highly recommend.
