Refractive Surgery Options
Refractive Surgery refers to several vision correction procedures that surgically change and improve the manner in which light rays enter the eye and are then focused on the retina. Through these procedures patients are able to achieve sharper, clearer vision.
Cataract Surgery Options
A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s lens, but getting a cataract does not have to doom you to a lifetime of blurry vision. In fact, technological advancements in cataract surgery allow us to produce results that were not possible just a few years ago.
If you are diagnosed with cataracts, our surgeons will develop a customized and effective treatment plan. This treatment plan may include cataract surgery that will replace the cloudy cataractous lens with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) or recommend custom cataract surgery using the FenSx Femtosecond Laser and Lifestyle Lenses including ReStor, Cyrystalens, or Toric IOLs.
The most common type of cornea treatments are for nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism and are treated by refractive surgery options. However, corneas can also become diseased which causes serious vision problems and even blindness. Two of the most common cornea conditions are keratitis and keratoconus. If left untreated these diseases can progress and cause a gradual loss of vision.
If you suspect you might have a cornea disease, schedule a consultation with one of our doctors. Your doctor will then perform a thorough examination and prescribe the most effective treatment for you.
Each year nearly 5,000 people go blind from glaucoma. About three million Americans suffer from the disease, but only about half are aware of it. With no noticeable early warning signs, the best way to catch glaucoma is through regular eye exams. This is especially true if you are over 60, have a family history of glaucoma, or have diabetes. The type of treatment needed for glaucoma varies by its severity at the time of its diagnosis.
The retina is a multi-layered tissue that lines the back of the eye. This part of your eye captures the ligt rays and converts the light in to images. If the delicate retinal tissue becomes damaged through either injury or disease, the eye can lose the ability to convert light into images and you may lose some or all of your vision.
If you suspect a potential retinal issue you should speak with a doctor as soon as possible. Our eye doctors are experienced in the early diagnosis and treatment of retinal diseases, including macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and retinal detachment.
Comprehensive Eye Exams and Glasses
Periodic eye and vision examinations are an important part of preventive health care for your eyes. Many eye and vision problems have no obvious signs or symptoms. As a result, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. Early diagnosis and treatment of eye and vision problems are important for maintaining good vision and eye health, and when possible, preventing vision loss.
