Services Administered by Our Optical Clinic in Chico

When you come to Reeves-Wood Eye Center, our optical clinic in Chico, you can expect a variety of services to be administered. With our optical clinic, premium lenses, and vision and eye exams, it’s no wonder we’re such a renowned choice for those in the Chico areas.

One condition our eye doctors are especially adept at treating or managing is macular degeneration. This condition is typically triggered by old age (50+ years old), in which case it’s known as age-related macular degeneration.

Patients can have either wet or dry age-related macular degeneration. With the wet version of this condition, retinal blood vessels will spray blood across the macula and other nearby areas. This leads to severe vision issues and possibly even permanent vision loss without treatment.

With dry age-related macular degeneration, drusen, a type of protein, develops on the macula. Of the kinds of age-related macular degeneration, most patients will have the dry kind. Symptoms often manifest more gradually, but this can still become as severe as wet age-related macular degeneration.

Once your optometrists in Chico diagnose you with wet or dry age-related macular degeneration, they can prescribe a treatment. Anti-VEGF medications may be able to lessen the symptoms and severity of wet age-related macular degeneration. These medications control your retinal blood vessels. If the medications fail, then your optometrist will likely suggest surgery.

While dry age-related macular degeneration is incurable, minerals and vitamins can potentially lessen the severity of the condition. These include at lea skst two milligrams of copper, 80 milligrams of zinc, two milligrams of zeaxanthin, 10 milligrams of lutein, 400 IUs of vitamin E, and 500 milligrams of vitamin C.

  • "Such a positive experience with his office! My first appointment was with Dr Reeve who was friendly and thorough with his exam. A year later Dr Woods performed my LASIK surgery and I have been thrilled with the results!! Their staff is super friendly and has really worked at getting my insurance to cover medications and making recommendations for where to get the lowest pharmacy fees!! I would recommend these doctors to anyone looking for ophthalmologists :)"
