Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

Eye Disease Management Includes:

  • Comprehensive eye exam

    Comprehensive eye exams are critical in catching sight-robbing eye diseases that typically don’t show early symptoms.

  • Diagnostic screening

    Certain changes in your eyes can indicate eye conditions. Our optometrists can diagnose the disease and determine the cause of these changes.

  • Treatments and surgeries

    We provide a wide range of treatments, including prescription eye drops and other medication. If needed, we'll refer you to the right specialist for eye surgery.

  • After care and follow-up

    We provide follow-up exams and after-care treatments to help you manage your symptoms and safeguard your vision.


What Are the 4 Most Common Eye Diseases?

  • Diabetic Retinopathy

    If you have diabetes, you should be aware of the risk of diabetic retinopathy. Elevated blood sugar can cause blood vessels in the eye to become inflamed or swell. In the early stages, you may not notice symptoms, but advanced diabetic retinopathy can cause blurred vision or eye inflammation.

    Diabetic retinopathy treatment includes:

    • Prescription medication
    • Laser surgeries
    • Anti-VEGF and steroid injections
    • Vitrectomy
  • Glaucoma

    Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness and often doesn’t show early symptoms. High pressure inside the eye causes glaucoma, and the purpose of glaucoma management is to reduce intraocular pressure.

    Glaucoma treatments include:

    • Prescription eye drops or medications
    • Laser procedures
    • Filtration surgery
    • Drainage tubes
    • Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS)
  • Cataracts

    Cataracts are cloudy formations on the eye lens. They can make your vision blurry and distorted. To restore normal vision, an optometrist will recommend cataract surgery, which involves replacing the cloudy lens with an artificial intraocular lens.

  • Macular Degeneration

    Macular degeneration, or AMD, occurs when the macula or the central part of the retina deteriorates. This results in blurred and distorted vision.

    There are two types of AMD: Dry AMD and Wet AMD.

    Although there isn’t a treatment for dry AMD, lifestyle changes and specific supplements can help prevent further vision deterioration.

    Wet AMD treatments include:

    • Photodynamic therapy
    • Anti-VEGF injections
    • Laser photocoagulation

Distorted or Blurred Vision? Have a family history of serious eye diseases?

Schedule an eye exam at Memorial Eye Center - Heights Blvd in Northside. Early diagnosis and treatment can help preserve eye health and prevent vision loss.

Amazing experience from booking my appointment with an ease and being able to communicate my needs t... o reschedule my appointment was also a breeze. The staffs here are super accommodating and helpful in answering all of my questions as I had a lapse of time in getting my eye exam.

Choosing the frames and fitting my glasses was also a breeze with the front of office staffs as well. Thank you all for an amazing experience!

Love my experience with this place. My appointment was a blessing ,I had a previous eyecare company ... that I dealt with and there is no comparison. Everyone was nice and professional. They actually had an ophthalmologist on site to help me . Walter helped me with all that I needed and was a very good person. He let me try on several pairs to see what I liked and what I was comfortable with . He even straightened the glasses I already had to keep them from falling . Love this place !

I’ve been a long time patient of this location, the new doctor is fantastic. She’s very attentiv... e, knowledgeable, and has great bedside manner. She caught a chronic problem that the previous doctor never even mentioned to me and after my appointment she casually asked what my job was and after I told her she pulled me back into the exam room to give me more specific information about the risk of high impact job activities that could affect my eye health. She really cares about the health of your eyes.
