Management of Ocular Diseases
Coffman Vision Clinic makes it a policy to ensure that all staff members are up-to-date on the latest technology and techniques to make your visit as comfortable and effective as possible. As optometric technology changes, it is even more important to select an eye doctor who has all the right optometry qualifications and follows the latest developments in eye care.
Utilizing cutting edge technology we are diagnosing and managing, with greater precision, diseases like Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration and Cataracts. Earlier and more precise diagnosis means earlier treatment and better outcomes. We are taking an aggressive approach to diseases that previously had few treatment options. Great advances have been made in the treatment of these diseases.
Cataract Surgery Co-Management
Cataracts, one of the most common causes of blindness, develop when the lens of the eye, located behind the iris and pupil, becomes opaque or cloudy. A cataract can result in loss of vision as it prevents light from passing into your eye and focusing on the retina.

Glaucoma is a genetic disease know as “The Thief of Sight”, because in the beginning there are usually no vision symptoms such as pain or blurred vision.Nevertheless, it’s a major cause of blindness worldwide.Elevated eye pressure is not always present, and the only reliable way to detect the disease is to examine the optic nerve.
Macular degeneration is an eye disease that affects the portion of the eye responsible for processing fine detail and providing sharp central vision (called the macula). It’s also a genetic disease that may respond to changes in diet and lifestyle.
Diabetic Retinopathy Treatment
There’s no separating diabetes and vision. If you have diabetes, then you should understand vision problems that increase in likelihood as a result of the disease.
