Macular Degeneration Santa Barbara
read moreMacular Degeneration is a deterioration or breakdown of the macula. The macula is a small area in the retina at the back of the eye that allows you to see fine details clearly and perform activities such as reading and driving. When the macula doesn't function correctly, your central vision can be affected by blurriness, dark areas or distortion. Macular Degeneration affects your ability to see near and far, and can make some activities-like threading a needle or reading difficult or impossible.
Glaucoma Santa Barbara
read moreGlaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve, which is part of the eye that carries the images we see to the brain. The optic nerve is made up of many nerve fibers, like an electric cable containing numerous wires. When pressure inside the eye increases, damage to the optic nerve fibers may occur, causing blind spots to develop. These blind spots usually go undetected until the optic nerve is significantly damaged. If the entire nerve is destroyed, blindness results. Early detection and treatment are the keys to preventing optic nerve damage and blindness from glaucoma.
