Comprehensive Eye Care

Comprehensive Eye Care for Your Optimal Ocular Health

Optomap® Eye Exam

Optomap® is an innovative technology that captures ultra-wide and highly-detailed images of the retina. Compared to most traditional imaging systems, which show only about 15% of the retina at once, optomap® captures an impressive 80%. Using this comprehensive information, optomap® images help with the improved detection and prevention of vision-threatening diseases. The exam is pain-free and non-invasive - in fact, the machine does not even touch the patient. With only a second scanning time, and the ability to save images for future comparison, the optomap® is a convenient and effective tool in maintaining our patients' eye health.

Conjunctivitis

Also known as pink eye, conjunctivitis is the irritation of the conjunctiva, the thin membrane covering the eye that provides lubrication and protection. Common pink eye symptoms include redness, itching, swelling, and a yellow discharge. The condition may result from allergies, a bacterial infection, or a highly contagious virus. Because the virus is so easily passed from person to person, it is important to diagnose the cause of pink eye. At Gaddie Eye Centers, we have two diagnostic tools that we can use to determine whether your infection is bacterial or viral, as well as a range of effective treatment options.

Flashes and Floaters

As we age, the fluid inside our eyes and ocular structures change, often leading to the development of flashes and floaters across our field of vision. Flashes are experienced as tiny specks of light, whereas floaters are seen as spots or shadows that drift aimlessly across your field of vision. These conditions are common and normally harmless, but a sudden increase in flashes and floaters can be a sign of more serious problems. Retinal holes, tearing, or detachment can cause patients to see more flashes and floaters, and suffer a curtain-like vision loss. If a patient experiences an increase in flashes and floaters, it is important to immediately seek the care of an eye care professional to determine the cause.

Computer Vision Syndrome

Given the number of hours employees log in front of the computer, it is little wonder that computer vision syndrome (CVS) is quickly becoming a common eye condition. Like many other repetitive stress injuries, CVS worsens as the task is performed more frequently and for longer periods of time. CVS is not limited to the contemporary workplace, and even children can develop CVS. The eyestrain experienced from staring at a computer screen for long periods of time can eventually lead to blurred vision, double vision, dry eyes, headaches, and neck or back pain. To help alleviate symptoms, the professionals at Gaddie Eye Centers can review CVS mitigation techniques with patients, and prescribe computer lenses or a computer coating for your lenses.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is the loss of vision due to nerve fiber damage, usually resulting from intraocular pressure, or pressure within the eye. Dr. Ben Gaddie has served as the President of the Optometric Glaucoma Society. A recognized expert, he has vast experience offering a variety of outstanding diagnostic tools and treatment options to glaucoma patients. Patients can conveniently receive all their specialized glaucoma testing and treatment, including laser surgeries, at Gaddie Eye Centers.

Diabetic Eye Disease

Diabetic eye disease refers to a group of eye issues with complications resulting from diabetes. Diabetes can increase your risk of developing a number of eye conditions, including diabetic retinopathy, or damage to the blood vessels in the retina, as well as cataracts and glaucoma. It is important that people with diabetes receive regular eye check-ups to help identify and treat conditions at an early stage. Vigilance and early intervention are key to ensuring good eye health, particularly for diabetics. With years of experience providing exceptional eye care, and an innovative optomap® onsite to closely track changes to the eye, our doctors offer advanced diagnostics and treatment to preserve and improve our patients' ocular health.

Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry eye is one of the most common eye conditions, and can be caused by allergies, computer use, the environment, the natural aging process, or a combination of factors. Dry eye symptoms can be extremely frustrating, not only affecting your vision, but also your quality of life. To help patients combat the effects of dry eye, we offer a comprehensive range of treatment, including supplements, eye drops, lid scrubs, treatment masks, RESTASIS®, and scleral or mini-scleral contacts. We also offer advanced testing methods, including InflammDry® testing, TearLab™ testing with tear samples, and for patients with severe dry eye, Sjö™, a method of detecting Sjögren’s syndrome. We are proud to be one of only two practices in the state to offer testing for Sjögren’s syndrome.

Gaddie Eye Centers is also the first and only eye care practice in Louisville to offer LipiFlow, a revolutionary treatment for Dry Eye Disease associated with Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD).  MGD occurs when there is a compromise to the function or structure of the meibomian glands in the eyelids that produce the protective oily layer in tears. These glands can become blocked over time and can no longer produce oils needed for healthy tears. This blockage results in rapid evaporation of your tears and can lead to irritation, discomfort and if not treated, gland dropout.

MGD is the leading cause of most forms of dry eye disease. Now, with the breakthrough LipiFlow technology, it’s possible to directly treat the root cause of MGD. LipiFlow is fast, painless and can substantially improve the quality of life for dry eye sufferers. Shown to provide comfort to 86% of dry eye patients, LipiFlow is the only FDA approved technology to address the root cause. Check out the below videos for more information:

Keratoconus

Keratoconus is a degenerative eye disorder that results in structural changes to the cornea, or clear tissue covering the front of the eye. In sufferers with the condition, the cornea will thin and become conical in shape, compared with its typical soft curvature. As a result of these changes, vision may become distorted, often with multiple, streaking images, combined with a sensitivity to light. A keratoconus specialist, Dr. Bruce Gaddie is recognized for his ability to treat a wide variety of keratoconus cases. In fact, he often receives referrals from across the state for his advanced testing and treatments options, which include specialty contact lenses to help restore visual acuity.
