Manage Eye Conditions

Disease Management at Brookside Optometric Group

A broad range of systemic conditions such as lupus, hypertension, diabetes, and more will affect your eyes. The doctors at Brookside Optometric Group can coordinate with your primary physician to document and control the changes to your vision and the health of your eye.

We provide treatment for bacterial and viral conditions that affect the cornea, as well as specific inflammatory diseases that affect the iris.

Glaucoma

Our advanced specialty testing equipment provides accurate diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment of glaucoma, one of the leading causes of blindness for people over 60.

Retinal Testing

Monitoring the retina and retinal nerve for signs of hypertensive or diabetic damage which can affect your vision.

Neurological Conditions

Many progressive neurological conditions will impact vision as they affect the retina and optic nerve. Our doctors can precisely measure and document the progression of these conditions.

Peripheral Vision Changes

Changes to your peripheral vision can go unnoticed for a long time, but can be the first sign of neurological issues. Our doctors test every patient for peripheral vision issues.

Advanced Testing

Our OCT scanner provides precise imaging of the retina and optic nerve, allowing us to detect minute changes that would be invisible to a doctor using traditional methods.

Treatment Options

Drop therapy once or twice a day. Medication to keep pressures low. Doctor can monitor and refer for surgery if necessary.
