To keep your retinas healthy, Dr. Steven Vold, a nationally known authority in retinal health brings his award-winning experience to diagnose and treat conditions of the retina. Along with our team of board-certified ophthalmologists and eye surgeons, patients who travel to Vold Vision in Northwest Arkansas will receive an accurate diagnosis and a customized treatment plan. While there are over 30 types of retinal diseases - such as macular edema, retinal artery occlusion, and infectious retinitis - it is age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and diabetic retinopathy that are the most widespread cause of blindness in America. AMD is a serious condition, but it has become more treatable as recently as ten years ago. As a result, our goal at Vold Vision is to put patients at ease, help them understand the most current treatment options, and work together to manage their condition.
"I have been dealing with Glaucoma for the past 25 years. I was put under the care of Dr. Laura Voicu at the Jules Stein Eye Institute at UCLA. She treated me for 18 months and performed Trabeculectomy surgeries on both eyes. Both surgeries were very successful. Dr. Voicuis a very compassionate, knowledgeable, and caring Physician and Surgeon. She is very thorough and carefully explains all aspects of your care. Of the numerous Doctors that have treated my Glaucoma she stands above the rest.Outstanding. I highly recommend Dr. Voicu for the treatment of Glaucoma."- T.D. / Google / Oct 30, 2017
"Life Changing Experience - I really can’t remember what it was like to be able to see clearly as a child. For as long as I can remember, my world without glasses or contacts was inaccessible to me. I woke up every morning to fuzzy shapes and indistinct faces. Finally, for my 40th birthday I decided that it was time for me to change my life. My decision to have Lasik surgery with Vold Vision was one of the best choices I have ever made. I timed my surgery to give me several months to heal before my first big adventure of my life, climbing the Inca Trail in Peru—a four-day trek, camping, hiking, and climbing through some of the most awe-inspiring mountains in the world, visiting centuries-old Incan ruins, and culminating in the incredible village of Machu Picchu. Each morning of that life-changing adventure, instead of waking up to a blur, I woke up to indescribable beauty. I opened my eyes, climbed out of my tent, and I could see for miles perfectly with my own eyes. It never ceases to amaze me what a miracle this is. My sincere thanks to Dr. Vold and the entire team at Vold Vision. You are changing lives every day. Thank you!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Feb 08, 2019
"If you've been considering corrective eye surgery, but are apprehensive, the after hours seminar is a great way to get information. Dr. Vold and his staff are very friendly and answered even my most skeptic questions. The atmosphere is laid back and comfortable. They hold one every month at their Fayetteville location to educate those who might be interested, and I did not feel pressured at all to make any form of commitment. Rather, I felt like Dr. Vold and his staff were there to help me make an informed decision about what was best for me. It was an enlightening experience, complete with yummy refreshments, and I highly recommend attending if it's something you might be interested in."- M.S. / Facebook / Feb 08, 2019

Signs and Symptoms
AMD may not have any specific symptoms early in its cycle. However, as the disease progresses, you may experience warping of lines that are actually straight and the odd sensation that bright colors appear washed out and dull. Further untreated progression may also subject you to a gradual or sudden loss, darkening, or blurring of central vision. If you have diabetes, you may run the risk of developing diabetic retinopathy. Just as high blood sugar is unhealthy for the rest of your body, it can also cause damage to the blood vessels in your eyes, specifically the retina. This results in the swelling of the retina (macular edema) and the loss of sight. Another classic symptom are dark floaters as the retina tries compensating for the blocked blood vessels by growing new ones.
