We love to see the expression of clarity in our patient’s eyes as they begin to understand their diagnosis and assist in the decision-making process. We have cutting-edge knowledge of the latest trends and theories for medical, laser, and surgical procedures. We also work with state-of-the-art equipment and the most modern computer technology with which to serve you best.
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. Clouded vision caused by cataracts can make it more difficult to read, drive a car (especially at night) or see the expression on a friend’s face.
Laser Vision Correction
LASIK is the most commonly performed laser eye surgery to treat myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism. The word “LASIK” is an acronym for “laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis.” Like other types of refractive surgery, the LASIK procedure reshapes the cornea to enable light entering the eye to be properly focused onto the retina for clearer vision.
The retina contains millions of light-sensitive cells (rods and cones) and other nerve cells that receive and organize visual information. Your retina sends this information to your brain through your optic nerve, enabling you to see. Treatment is available for some retinal diseases. Depending on your condition, treatment goals may be to stop or slow the disease and preserve, improve or restore your vision.
