Testing and Treatment

Our Bellevue eye doctors test for a wide variety of eye diseases including glaucoma, macular degeneration, and, cataracts; we also monitor systemic diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure and their impact on the eye health. Many diseases, like glaucoma, gradually steal sight without warning, therefore early detection is vital to stopping the progress of the disease.

We use the latest detection and treatments available including a painless, drop-less eye pressure check, and ophthalmoscopy and the mildest dilation drop, when necessary. Our Optos instrument is able to take a 200 degree panoramic view of the retinal issue; also, the auto-fluorescence feature looks at internal tissue layers to detect early anomalies.

  • A permanent record for your file, which allows us to view your images each year to look for changes.
