Treatment of Eye Disease

Cataract

Dr. Peter will be able to see a cataract while doing an eye health examination. Treatments for cataracts include eyeglasses, magnifying lenses or surgery. Cataract surgery is a highly efficient method of treatment where the cloudy lens is removed and replaced with an artifical one. Dr. Peter will personally discuss the patient's options, risks and new possibilities that come with cataract surgery.

Age related Macular Degeneration

Age related macular degeneration is a progressively developing condition, destroying the macula and causing central vision loss. There are 2 types of AMD: Wet and dry macular degeneration.
Options to treat wet AMD are: laser surgery, ocular injections and photodynamic therapy. Wet AMD can be treated with high dose formulations of zinc and antioxidants. They may help to slow down the development of the condition and possibly prevent  AMD from progressing. Dr. Peter will choose an individualized approach to monitor and help patients manage the condition in their everyday life.

Glaucoma

Even though glaucoma cannot be reversed, there are options to control the disease and prevent further development of the condition. By lowering the eye pressure, vision loss and nerve damage can be prevented. Very common treatment options are eye drops, laser or surgery. Dr. Peter will assess and discuss the treatment options with the patient and make recommendations for the best approach to improve the patient's life style and vision.
