The eye conditions she treats includes:

 

Problems with vision and eyesight.

 

Glaucoma:  

 

Glaucoma is a group of diseases that damage the eye’s optic nerve and can result in vision loss and blindness. However, with early detection and treatment, you can often protect your eyes against serious vision loss.  Dr. Kotecha can assist with the diagnosis and treatment of this disease with medications, laser or surgery.  

 

Diabetic Retinopathy:

Dr Kotecha has completed extensive training in diabetic eye disease

Diabetic retinopathy is retinopathy (damage to the retina) caused by complications of diabetes, which can eventually lead to blindness.   It occurs when diabetes damages the tiny blood vessels inside the retina in the back of the eye.If you have diabetic retinopathy, at first you may not notice changes to your vision. But over time, diabetic retinopathy can get worse and cause vision loss. Diabetic retinopathy usually affects both eyes.  Diabetic retinopathy can be treated with preventive measures, laser, injectable medications, or surgery.  

 

Macular Degeneration:

 

Macular degeneration, often age-related macular degeneration (AMD or ARMD), is a medical condition that usually affects older adults and results in a loss of vision in the center of the visual field (the macula) because of damage to the retina. It occurs in "dry" and "wet" forms. It is a major cause of blindness and visual impairment in older adults (>50 years). Macular degeneration can make it difficult or impossible to read or recognize faces, although enough peripheral vision remains to allow other activities of daily life.  Dry AMD is often treated with vitamin supplements and close follow up.  Wet AMD is often treated with injectable medications.  Dr Kotecha diagnosis and treats wetAMD.  

 

Cataracts:

 

A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of your eye. For people who have cataracts, seeing through cloudy lenses is a bit like looking through a frosty or fogged-up window.  At first, stronger lighting and eyeglasses can help you deal with cataracts. But if impaired vision interferes with your usual activities, you might need cataract surgery. Fortunately, cataract surgery is generally a safe, effective procedure.  Cataract surgery has become highly advanced and now there are options to reduce ones dependency on eyeglasses.

 

Dry Eyes:  

 

Millions of Americans suffer from dry eye. There are two main causes: decreased secretion of tears by the lacrimal (tear-producing) glands and loss of tears due to excess evaporation. Both can lead to ocular surface discomfort, often described as feelings of dryness, burning, a sandy/gritty sensation, or itchiness. Visual fatigue, sensitivity to light, and blurred vision are also characteristic of dry eye.

Pterygium:

 

A pterygium is a growth that develops on the conjunctiva or mucous membrane that covers the white part of your eye. It is a benign or noncancerous growth that is often shaped like a wedge. In some cases, a pterygium can extend to the cornea. This is the clear part of your eye that covers your iris and pupil.  Pterygium may be treated conservatively or removed with surgery

 

Chalazia or Styes:  

 

A chalazion is a small bump that appears on your eyelid because of a blocked oil gland. It can develop on the lower or upper eyelid. 

However, you should see a doctor if you think you might have a chalazion.   In rare cases, chalazia are caused by skin cancer.

They can be treated both conservatively and with surgery by your eye doctor.

 

Eyelid Surgeries:  

 

Ptosis is a drooping of the upper eyelid. The lid may droop only slightly, or it may cover the pupil entirely. In some cases, ptosis can restrict and even block normal vision.  It can make us appear older and tired.

Eye Emergencies: (often same day)

 

Laser Vision Correction: Lasik or PRK

 

LASIK, which stands for laser in-situ keratomileusis, is a popular surgery used to correct vision in people who are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism.
