The Common Eye Diseases Seen at Erie Optical

At Erie Optical, there are a number of common eye diseases that we see on a regular basis. Some of them include:

Cataracts: Over time, people may develop something called cataracts. Cataracts appear as dense, opaque obstructions that cover the lenses of the eyes. As a result, people may start to complain of cloudy vision. Cataracts are ultimately only removable through surgery. This can provide someone with an almost instant improvement in his or her vision, but is often as last resort, as cataracts can be present in a person's eyes for years before they become a problem.

GlaucomaGlaucoma is a serious eye disease that we see on a regular basis. With Glaucoma, patients suffer from damage to their optic nerve, often caused by a change in ocular pressure within the eye. If this damage to the optic nerve is not addressed quickly, it could rob someone of their vision. For this reason, at Erie Optical, we check ocular pressures at preventative visits.

Macular DegenerationOver time, people's eyes deteriorate. This is why many people refer to macular degeneration as a disease of aging. In this eye disease, the center of the visual field is the part that suffers. This part of vision is powered by the macula. When the macula starts to degenerate, people have problems with their central vision. While there is no cure for macular degeneration, there are many steps our team can supply you with to slow down the progression of the disease.

Diabetic RetinopathyPerhaps no condition is rising more rapidly in frequency than diabetic retinopathy. With this disease, high glucose levels damage the nerves and blood vessels that supply the eyes. As a result, people start to have trouble seeing. This condition is managed best by both an eye doctor and a trained endocrinologist.

Dry Eye SyndromeThis condition can be very frustrating for someone to deal with. Those who have dry eye often feel like there is sand in their eyes at all times. We can prescribe eye drops and oral medications that can help someone manage these symptoms.

  • ""I have been going to Erie Optical for 3 years now. My sister referred me to Dr. Waldman after her great experience with him and the office. We had a previous eye doctor and the experience was not good and they charged so much. So when I went to Erie Optical I was so pleased with the office and Dr. Waldman's expertise and thoroughness. I ended up referring my parents and grandmother to Erie Optical too. I will never going anywhere else!!!""
