Cataracts cloud the eye’s natural lense, causing blurry vision that can severely interfere with everyday life. To remove cataracts patients must undergo cataract surgery, during which the natural lens is replaced with an artificial lens. Dr. Martin Whitaker is proud to be the only ophthalmologist in Maine to offer dropless cataract surgery. During this procedure, antibiotics are delivered to the eye through an injection rather than eye drops, which significantly reduces the risk of infection.
Glaucoma is caused by a buildup of pressure that damages the eye’s optic nerve over time. This condition often has no early signs or symptoms, causing complete vision lost when left untreated. Regular eye exams with your eye doctor are essential to diagnosing and treating glaucoma before it becomes too late. Dr. Whitaker offers a number of glaucoma treatment options at his Maine offices, including the groundbreaking iStent procedure.

Riverside Eye Center, with Lewiston and Norway, Maine locations, provides the full range and scope of comprehensive eye care services including general eye care and routine eye examinations. There are many factors that can determine how often your eyes should be examined. Experienced ophthalmologist Dr. Whitaker recommends that in order to maintain good eye health and vision, all patients should have routine eye examinations on a regular basis.

Diabetic eye disease refers to a group of eye conditions that impact people with diabetes. Diabetic eye exams are important part of maintaining eye health and vision, and it is recommended that patients with diabetes schedule a comprehensive eye exam at least once every year. Riverside Eye Center is conveniently located for Maine eye care patients in need of exams and treatment of diabetic eye disease.
