We also encourage referrals and inquires regarding other vision-related medical conditions and diseases pertaining to the eye.
A cataract is the cloudy area in your lens. Aging, injury, or other risk factors prevent light from being able to form a clear image on the retina. Symptoms of this condition include spots in the front of your eye, blurry or hazy vision, increased sensitivity to glare, and the sensation of a “film” that covers your eye.
Surgical removal of the lens followed by replacement of a plastic intraocular lens or IOL is necessary if a patient experiences substantial vision loss. Cataracts are an extremely common eye condition, and cataract surgery is the most frequently performed eye procedure.
Your cornea is the transparent portion of your eye in the front of the pupil and iris. It is responsible for refracting or bending rays of light that focus on the retina at the back of your eye. However, a particular shape or curvature is necessary to focus light precisely on the retina, instead of in front of it or behind it. When the cornea is not correctly curved, the curved cornea can cause light to focus behind or in front of the retina instead of precisely on it.
Corneal transplantation, or keratoplasty, is among the most common types of transplant surgery. It is a low-risk procedure and has a high success relate. This surgery replaces the damaged cornea with a healthy donor.
When the cornea begins to thin and bulge, the shape of it shifts from being curved to conical. This is due to a degenerative eye disorder, which results in significant vision distortion and affects one’s driving and reading abilities. Generally, this can be addressed through corrective lenses.
