Cataract Removal

More than 50% of people over the age of 60 – and a large percentage of those younger – have vision that is impaired by cataracts. Cataracts are so common that everyone will eventually develop a cataract if they live long enough. Despite recent breakthroughs in technology and surgical techniques, cataracts continue to be one of the leading causes of poor vision among seniors worldwide.

YAG Laser Eye Surgery

The most common complication of adults having standard extracapsular surgery or phacoemulsification for cataracts camera is clouding of the part of the lens covering that remains after surgery, called posterior capsule opacification. If the cloudiness affects your vision, you may choose to have a laser surgery called YAG posterior capsulotomy to correct this problem.

photo refractive keratectomy

Photo-Refractive Keratectomy

Photorefractive keratectomy, or PRK, is a type of laser eye surgery used to correct mild to moderate nearsightedness, farsightedness, and/or astigmatism. All laser vision correction surgeries work by reshaping the cornea, or clear front part of the eye, so that light traveling through it is properly focused onto the retina located in the back of the eye.
glaucoma surgery

Glaucoma Management & Surgery

Surgery is not always necessary to treat glaucoma. Medicines can often control the pressure in the eyes, preventing further vision loss and blindness. Medicine will usually be tried first before surgery is considered. Laser surgery is usually tried first when glaucoma medicines do not lower the pressure in the eyes (intraocular pressure, or IOP). If laser surgery does not help, your doctor may try conventional surgery.
implantable contact lens

Implantable Contact Lenses & Intra-ocular Lens Implants

The Visian ICL is capable of correcting a wide range of myopia without the removal or destruction of corneal tissue. The ICL is a small, foldable, injectable lens that is inserted through a tiny, 3 mm incision that does not require sutures. The ICL provides predictable refractive outcomes and good quality of vision due to its placement inside the eye, as well as its optical performance.
