Diagnosis & Treatment for Glaucoma and Macular Degeneration
Healthy eyes are the basis for crisp, clear, and comfortable vision – and our Akron eye doctor is dedicated to helping you keep your eyes as healthy as possible, for as long as possible. Dr. Ty Miller will inspect your eyes thoroughly during your comprehensive eye exam, performed in the convenience of our Chapel Hill Mall office, located inside LensCrafters.
If you are diagnosed with an eye disease, such as glaucoma and macular degeneration, Dr. Miller will monitor your condition closely to ensure that your treatment is as effective as can be. We equip our eye care clinic with state-of-the-art technology to ensure precise diagnoses and advanced treatments.
Regular Eye Exams for Managing Eye Disease
At the beginning, many common eye diseases, including macular degeneration, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma, do not typically present symptoms. Therefore, many of our Akron patients do not notice a problem until the ocular disease has progressed to a late stage – when vision damage has already occurred.
With routine eye exams, we aim to catch the signs of an eye disease way before you do! This enables early treatment, which has a much better prognosis. Using tools such as retinal cameras, digital imagery, and diagnostics like the OCT scan, our eye doctor will be able to spot the start of eye disease. Contact our office to book your eye exam, we look forward to helping you enjoy lasting, quality vision.
Treatment for Eye Disease
After you receive an accurate diagnosis in our Akron clinic, our compassionate optometrist will explain your ocular condition and answer any concerns you may have. We believe that open communication between eye doctor and patient is necessary for optimum care, and together we will determine the most appropriate treatment for your eyes – that fits your lifestyle and needs.

Macular Degeneration Treatment
In this disease, the macula – center part of your eye – deteriorates, leaving you incapable of seeing the middle of an image clearly. Fine details are impossible to see. At present, macular degeneration has no cure, yet an early diagnosis can slow the progression of this disease significantly. The type of treatment that we will recommend depends largely upon the type of macular degeneration you have. Possible treatment options include injections into your eye, medication, and laser surgery. Dr. Miller will discuss these treatments with you to design the best plan for monitoring and managing your condition.
Glaucoma Testing and Treatment
Glaucoma describes a category of eye diseases that can damage your optic nerve and destroy your clear vision. Typically, there are no symptoms at the beginning. Yet, we will be able to identify the warning signs for glaucoma during a regular eye exam. With a quick and painless screening procedure, our Akron optometrist will use a tonometer to measure the pressure of your inner eyes; higher-than-normal pressure levels are a strong indicator of glaucoma. We will also inspect your inner eye tissues and optic nerve to verify a glaucoma diagnosis and recommend the most effective treatment. Typically, eye drops are the first line of defense that we prescribe.
