Eye Disease Diagnosis, Treatment & Prevention
Technology makes a difference. We have the technology all in-house so you do not have to be referred to someone else, in most cases. In this day of high tech instrumentation, the experts all use the same instruments that we do, whether at the Mayo Clinic or right here in town. Our “expert in a box” is just as good as theirs, and this will save you both time and money, especially when you want to maintain and preserve your vision.

Early detection: Brill Eye Center is all about prevention. Almost anyone can treat a disease once it has presented itself. Taking a preventative approach to vision loss is a much more difficult task. This is done by sophisticated analysis of normative data from tests, risk factor analysis, known genetic predisposition, environmental exposure, and nutritional studies tailored to the individual patient.
Diabetes, Hypertension, Arthritis, Gut Disorders, Lyme Disease, neurological disorders like MS, and stroke all have ocular components. We check for all diseases during our comprehensive examination. Our doctors are often the first to suggest that you may have a systemic problem by the findings we see in the eye examination. The medications for these diseases—like Plaquenil for arthritis—may also have dire consequences for your vision. We will report the findings to you and to your referring doctor or primary care provider to coordinate your care to your best benefit.
