No one likes the idea of eye surgery, but good vision is something that no one should live without. Fortunately, remarkable advances have been made in ophthalmic surgery, and today’s eye surgeons can do life-changing things.
At EyeCare Consultants Surgery Center, we perform the following state-of-the-art procedures. Click the links below for more information.
Comprehensive eye exams actually offer an accurate indication of your overall health because ophthalmologists are often the first healthcare professionals to detect chronic conditions such as hypertension and diabetes.
Laser surgery has become a desirable option as an intermediate glaucoma treatment between medications and traditional surgery and some doctors use it as an initial treatment prior to starting drops.Learn More
Medications, including eye drops and pills, are often prescribed as part of a glaucoma treatment plan. For glaucoma medication to be completely effective it must be taken exactly as directed by your doctor.Learn More
Since damage to the optic nerve is irreversible, there is no cure for glaucoma. However, aggressive control of eye pressure can prevent further vision loss. Your doctor will go over what treatment options are available and make recommendations for which treatment or combinations of treatments are best for your specific condition.Learn More
Implantable contact lenses (also called phakic intraocular lenses or IOLs) are a surgical option for correcting moderate to severe myopia (nearsightedness). An alternate choice to LASK or PRK eye surgery, IOLs can produce better and more predictable vision outcomes than laser refractive surgery.
An intraocular lens, or IOL, is a clear, plastic lens that becomes a permanent part of the eye and requires no care. Based on test results, a surgeon will recommend the best IOL for each individual patient.Learn More
Through extensive clinical research and trials, doctors and researchers are constantly creating new and exciting treatment methods for glaucoma patients. These innovative procedures combine the newest technology, enhanced surgical methods and breakthrough drugs to normalize intraocular pressure and manage your glaucoma.Learn More
Refractive lensectomy, also called refractive lens exchange, corrects nearsightedness or farsightedness. By replacing the eye’s natural lens, which has the wrong power, with an artificial intraocular lens implant (IOLs), this procedure provides the correct power for the eye. It uses the same techniques of modern cataract surgery.
Problems after cataract surgery are rare but can occur. Sometimes the tissue that encloses the artificial intraocular lens becomes cloudy and blurs the vision. This is called an after-cataract. This can develop months or even years after cataract surgery. This outpatient procedure is treated with a laser, called YAG laser capsulotomy.
