Medical Eye Care



Medical Eye Care from Goodman Eye Center

The surgeons at the Goodman Eye Center are Board Certified Ophthalmologists, trained to treat a wide range of eye diseases and disorders. Through years of extensive training and experience, our doctors are prepared to offer you the most advanced care for your eye care needs. Some of the areas of treatment include:



Glaucoma Management


Glaucoma is an eye disease which, left unchecked, damages the optic nerve.  Glaucoma can be unnoticed for years because there are typically no noticeable symptoms.  Because of the asymptomatic nature of Glaucoma, it is the second leading cause of blindness in America.

Macular Degeneration


Macular Degeneration is an age related disease that negatively impacts the retina. The macula, or the center of vision in the retina is damaged as the disease progresses.

Once vision is lost from macular degeneration, it can't be restored, but there are several treatment options that may slow the disease.

Diabetic Eye Care


Diabetes can affect many organs of the body and the eyes are no exception.  The most common effect diabetes has on the eyes is a condition known as diabetic retinopathy.  Almost half of the people who have diabetes have some form of diabetic retinopathy.

Ptosis & Blepharoplasty


Ptosis is a condition in which the eyelid droops. It is caused by a weakness or separation of muscles deep within the eyelid. Ptosis does not involve excess skin or tissue in the eyelid (a condition called dermatochalasis). It is usually a result of aging, but some people develop ptosis after eye surgery or an injury, and some children are born with the condition.

Chalazion

Chalazia ("small pimples" in Greek) are cysts, or fluid-filled sacs, on the edge of the eyelid. Small glands in the eyelids called meibomian glands normally secrete a thick, fatty fluid called sebum into the hair follicles of the eyelashes. When these glands become chronically inflamed, chalazia - also called meibomian cysts - form.

At Goodman Eye Center we usually treats chalazia by prescribing antibiotic eye drops and warm compresses.  We may also drain a firm cyst by pressing on it to release the sebum trapped inside or treat it surgically if necessary.
