Diagnosis and Treatment of Systemic Eye Diseases

Our doctors are trained to identify risk factors associated with chronic disease and to co-manage previously diagnosed medical conditions with other medical professionals. By viewing the different tissues and layers of the eye, our doctors are able to see early warning signs of many serious chronic diseases such as diabetes, high cholesterol, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, tumors and Crohn’s disease. Our doctors are equipped to document these risk factors and make referrals to other medical providers to increase the overall health of each patient.
