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

I do not usually leave reviews but the people I mention here deserve recognition. My profession & b... usiness is as a Long Haul Truck Driver & my eye sight is extremely important. The Insight staff I came in contact with were all very friendly, knowledgeable, & helpful. When I arrived I was greeted with a smile & professionalism by Pam. She was extremely helpful with the check in process & making sure I knew what my insurance coverage took care of. She then got me set up with Mark, the eye technician. Mark was extremely helpful, he explained each procedure & helped me understand them. He also helped me by explaining what procedures would be not only helpful with my eye exam that day but also which ones would be good for future appointments as a reference to the direction of my eye health. Dr. Paradis is 100% fantastic, he was straight up with me & did not sugarcoat things. I personally think all doctors should be this way. When doing the part of the exam, lens flips as I call it, where they are asking which is clearer he did not rush me & didn't make me feel like it was a problem to let me see them again before deciding. He did not act like a salesman when it came to his recommendations for glasses, he put it out there straight forward. Then Sarah helped me with choosing glasses & what type of lenses to get, she actually listened when I explained what I do for a living. She was very knowledgeable which was a huge relief for me. She brought me what she thought would suit me & indulged my needing to try a few that did not suit my face at all. She then explained the difference in the lenses & what they would do for my eye sight. She did not rush me in making my decision. When I asked both Sarah & Pam their opinions on if the frames looked good on me or not, I very much appreciated their honesty. I would like to thank all of them for making my appointment at Insight Eye Care a delightful experience.
