Treatment & Management of Ocular Diseases

Glaucoma Care & Evaluations

Glaucoma is a group of eye disorders that lead to damage of the optic nerve and result in vision loss and blindness. Because there are usually no symptoms or pain associated with the onset of glaucoma, it's commonly called the "Silent Thief of Vision".

Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness. It is estimated 120,000 Americans are blind as a result of glaucoma. That represents 9% to 12% of all causes of blindness within the U.S.

Only an eye exam can detect glaucoma. Glaucoma can only be diagnosed through a comprehensive eye health examination. Since glaucoma is a multifactorial disease, it is important to perform a multitude of tests yearly to track progression of the condition. Some of these tests may include dilation, retinal scan with OCT, intraocular pressure check, and visual field analysis.

Of the estimated 3 million Americans that have glaucoma, only half know they have it. For the sake of your sight, please contact our office at (580) 255-0988 to schedule an eye examination.

Diabetic Care

At Rice Family Vision, we provide evaluations for diabetic retinopathy & communication with your primary care physician to aid in controlling your diabetes.

Anyone with diabetes is at risk for diabetic eye disease. But often there are no symptoms until the disease is advanced. For that reason, Dr. Rice recommends that anyone with – or at risk for – diabetes has a comprehensive, dilated eye examination at least once a year. Early detection and treatment are the key to maintaining healthy vision.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease process within your retina. It most commonly occurs when parts of the macula become thinner due to old age. Other factors can increase your risk of developing and/or worsening your AMD. With AMD you lose your central vision. You lose the ability to see fine detailed images, but your peripheral (side) vision will remain normal. AMD is a leading cause of vision loss in people 50 years or older. 

You are more likely to develop AMD if you:

  • eat a diet high in saturated fat (found in foods like meat, butter, and cheese)
  • are overweight
  • smoke cigarettes
  • are over 50 years old
  • have a family history of AMD
  • are Caucasian (white)
  • have heart disease
  • have high cholesterol
