Cataracts are one of the most common eye diseases that we treat, with more than half of Americans over age 65 suffering from clouded lenses. Through cataract surgery, we can remove the clouded lens and replace it with an artificial intraocular lens. We perform both traditional and laser surgeries.
Glaucoma is a serious condition that occurs when pressure in the eye builds, damaging the optic nerve. Although there is no cure for glaucoma, and your doctor cannot restore vision that has already been lost, early detection and careful monitoring can help protect your eyesight.
Elevated blood sugar from diabetes can damage the blood vessels in the retina, causing impaired sight or even vision loss. We offer several forms of treatment, including laser therapy to stop blood leakage and shrink enlarged vessels, and vitrectomy to remove scar tissue from the middle of the eye.
Macular degeneration is a common condition among older adults, affecting the macula, the central part of the retina that allows you to see fine details. Symptoms of macular degeneration include blurred vision, blind spots, haziness, and difficulties distinguishing color.
As you age, it is normal for the vitreous fluid in the inner eye to thicken and shrink. This can cause the vitreous fluid to pull away from retina, tearing it in one or more places and increasing your risk for complete retinal detachment. We can repair torn retinas with laser surgery.
