LASIK is a combination of the two latest technologies in laser vision correction which together provide a customized, all-laser treatment that maximizes both safety and results. Your eyes are as unique as your fingerprints and deserve a treatment tailored to your specific needs.
Our vision is to provide quality, comprehensive eye care at an affordable cost to our patients. We believe by practicing at the greatest level of our expertise, utilizing the latest technology and communicating our knowledge, we can give our patients the highest standard of care.
What is a Cataract?
The eye is like a camera, and has a lens that is located just behind the pupil. The lens in your eye is naturally transparent, allowing light to pass into the eye.
As we age the lens loses both its transparency and the ability to change focus. The loss of
transparency–or clouding of the lens–is known as a cataract. Injury, medicines and smoking also contribute to cataract growth.
Between the ages of 50 – 60 (and sometimes younger) many adults have some cataract even if they have otherwise healthy eyes.
Causes of cataract:
The most common cause of cataract is aging. Other common causes include:
Sunlight (UV light)
Medications such as steroid tablets or eye drops
Symptoms of cataract:
Common symptoms of cataract include:
A painless blurring of vision
A yellow haze in vision
Depth perception issues
Glare, or light sensitivity
Poor night vision
Double vision in one eye
Needing brighter light to read
Fading of colors in vision
More injuries and falls may result from a cataract.
Cataracts are treated with surgery.
Many issues must be considered before the decision to operate is made. These include:
The visual problems experienced
Determining that cataract is present
An assessment of whether other eye disease is present and how this will impact on the expected outcome
A review of the risks of surgery
