Eye Disease Diagnosis & Management in North York


Safeguard Your Vision

Many forms of eye disease do not exhibit any symptoms in their early stages, so you may not even realize something is wrong until permanent damage has been done to your vision.

Your best defence against eye disease is to book regular eye exams.

Common Types of Eye Diseases

Age-related macular degeneration is an eye disease that can affect people of all ages but generally develops in patients 50 years of age or older. There are two types of AMD: Dry AMD and wet AMD.

Dry AMD occurs when the macula, located near the center of your retina, starts to thin and break down, compromising your central vision. Wet AMD occurs when blood vessels form underneath and in your macula, leaking blood and fluids that can damage your central vision.

Glaucoma is a collection of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve. Most of the time it is caused by raised intraocular pressure, but can develop even when your eye’s internal pressure is within the normal range. The two most common forms are as open-angle and angle-closure glaucoma.

  • Open-angle glaucoma occurs when the drainage canal between iris and cornea becomes clogged or partially blocked, slowly increasing your eye’s intraocular pressure, damaging the optic nerve, and causing vision loss.
  • Angle-closure glaucoma occurs when the angle between the iris and cornea closes completely, blocking fluids from leaving the eye. This type of glaucoma is considered a medical emergency because of how fast it can permanently damage your vision.

“Pink eye”, medically known as conjunctivitis, is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, the thin membrane covering the whites over your eye. Conjunctivitis can be caused by a virus, bacteria, or allergies.

Cataracts are the clouding of the lenses of your eye as you grow older. It is treatable but can cause vision loss if left to develop over time.

Protect Your Vision

Eye diseases can cause permanent vision loss without treatment from an eye care professional. Depending on the symptoms and your personal health requirements, your optometrist can recommend to you the best options to treat or manage your disease.
