OCULAR DISEASE MANAGEMENT
& EMERGENCY EYE CARE
Dr. Troy Mysliwiec has a special interest and gained invaluable training during his residency at the Salem Veterans Hospital in ocular disease. Oftentimes patients develop chronic conditions such as dry eye, glaucoma, and macular degeneration where there may be no cure but careful monitoring is crucial. Furthermore, diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure can effect the eyes and these conditions require careful monitoring and assessment of the eyes; all of which Dr. Troy has experience in. Unfortunately, at times emergencies happen whether through trauma, red eye, sudden loss or changes in vision and we offer emergency services, as well.
Glaucoma is the name given to a group of related diseases where the optic nerve is being damaged. The nerve fibers progressively die taking away the peripheral or side vision first. Therefore visual loss goes undetected until it is quite advanced.
