Eye Conditions


Many eye and systemic conditions can be diagnosed by the doctors of Aspire Health Solutions. Here we highlight a few common eye conditions that are routinely found in nursing home facilities. If you or a loved one has been recently diagnosed with an eye related issue by our doctors or others outside our practice and you have questions please feel free to contact our office. We are here to help and are always happy to answer any questions you may have now or in the future.


Cataracts

A cloudy or opaque area in the normally clear lens of the eye. Cataracts can effect your vision, but can be fixed with a simple out-patient surgery. The doctors at Aspire Health Solutions work closely with local in network surgeons and will coordinate your care before and after surgery.


Macular Degeneration

An eye disease affecting the macula, the center of the light sensitive retina at the back of the eye, causing loss of central vision. Our doctors can show you the health of your retina with our state-of-the-art fundus cameras. We can monitor your macula for any early signs of the disease. To protect from this devastating condition, it is highly advised to NOT SMOKE, wear UV protection, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, and to have annual eye health exams.

Myopia ("Nearsightedness")

A vision condition in which you can see close objects clearly, but objects farther away are blurred. In some cases the eye is "longer" than normal leading to myopia. Myopia in young patients can increase with excessive texting and computer use. Myopia can be corrected with glasses and/or contact lenses and for individuals interested in not wearing glasses or contacts we can advise you on surgical options to correct your vision.

Hyperopia ("Farsightedness")

A vision condition in which distant objects are usually seen clearly, but close objects do not come into proper focus. Hyperopia can be corrected with glasses or contact lenses.

Presbyopia ("Maturing Eyes")

A vision condition in which distant objects are usually seen clearly, but close objects do not come into proper focus. Hyperopia can be corrected with glasses or contact lenses.

Floaters

The shadowy images that are seen moving in your field of vision caused by particles floating in the fluid that fills the inside of the eye. Optometrists can detect floaters in a routine eye exam.

Diabetic Eye Disease

Our clinical offices pride themselves on using digital retinal photography to capture images of this sight threatening disease. Diabetes is one of the main causes of vision loss in the United States. Eye exams sometimes reveal this disease prior to you having other symptoms such as increased thirst and hunger and increased frequency of urination. Our digital retinal cameras reveal small hemorrhages resembling “red dots”. With our advanced technology we can monitor the progression of the disease process.
