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

Distorted or Blurred Vision? Have a family history of serious eye diseases?

Schedule an eye exam at Cherry Vision Center in Sylvania. Early diagnosis and treatment can help preserve eye health and prevent vision loss.

Today I took my 2 year old and my self to go see the eye doc. Her appointment was a hour and forty m... ins before mine. She is also autistic and can be a handful. They did a fantastic job with her and reassured us that her eye will correct its self! Now mind you I have my 9 yr old and my 1 yr old with me all being … well kids. I was mortified at how they were acting because it seemed to be a whole new level! The front desk would giggle because they thought they were adorable as I am corralling them around. Only took 20 mins to get my daughter in and out. I asked my husband if they wanted to go shopping to burn some time. When they politely interrupted and said would you mind seeing Doctor cherry ? I was thrilled ! So my husband kept the 2 busy while the 1 yr old tagged along with momma. He was fantastic! Did not judge me for having waited so long for getting new glasses. Was quick but definitely knew what he was doing! This location was everything I hoped it would be being so small! I will highly recommend this place to anyone I know! You guys were amazing! An have earned life long clients !!

Dr Cherry and his staff were all so very kind to see me when I had a concern with my eyes. From the ... moment I called they were very accommodating and understood my concern. When I went into the office they got to work quickly and helped find out what my issue was. Dr Cherry did several test & explained my issues very well to me and helped ease my mind. I am happy to have found a caring, friendly ophthalmologist office.

Learning about your family’s medical history can provide important clues regarding your predisposition to certain eye diseases and vision problems.

How to prevent eye diseases?

Adopting a healthy lifestyle and getting regular eye exams can improve your chances of maintaining clear vision and eye health.

Make sure to:

  • Avoid smoking

  • Wear sunglasses that offer 100 UV protection
  • Have regular eye exams
What are the symptoms of serious eye problems?
