Conditions Treated by Our Ophthalmologist at Lavenburg Medical Group
The treatment of eye health problems has become extremely specialized. If you need retinal surgery for a detached retina, for example, your retina specialist will send you a different ophthalmologist if you also have cataracts. If you have glaucoma and also macular degeneration, you will need to see two different doctors in two different eye specialties. Everyone with eye health problems needs someone to coordinate the specialists and make sure no eye condition goes untreated. That's where Lavenburg Medical Group at the Delmar Surgical and Cosmetic Treatment Center in Elkton, Newark, and Wilmington comes in.
For Eye Health Problems, Lavenburg Medical Group Is Your Primary Care Provider
Eyeglasses are still the most common treatment option for common vision problems, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and many cases of astigmatism. Our doctors of optometry at Lavenburg Medical Group can prescribe glasses to give you the best possible vision and also provide you with a broad selection of stylish frames.
Contacts give their wearers more complete vision correction. They also do a better job of compensating for astigmatism. It's even possible to correct some eye health problems with orthokeratology, a series of contact lenses worn at night to reshape the cornea to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, presbyopia, and some cases of astigmatism.
Your doctor of optometry in Lavenburg Medical Group can also provide you with blue-light blocking glasses to lessen digital eyestrain after working on your computer. We also provide glasses that help you see better for sports and outdoor activities.
For Other Eye Health Problems, Lavenburg Medical Group Is Your Eye Care Coordinator
Some eye health conditions are corrected by eye surgery, performed by an ophthalmologist. The ophthalmologists who do these surgeries tend to be extremely specialized, especially when retinal surgery is involved.
If you are diabetic, for example, the doctor who performs your cataract surgery may send you to a second specialist to make sure you do not have bleeding in your retina before you undergo cataract surgery.
If you have LASIK surgery, you will need follow-up exams. We work with your LASIK provider before and after your procedure to make sure you get exactly the care you need.
Lavenburg Medical Group keeps track of all your eye health issues. We can provide your ophthalmologists with the information they need to give you the treatment you need now, without waiting for weeks or even months to get referrals to other specialists.
We can also detect important eye health problems while they are still treatable during an eye exam.
