Out with the cloudy. In with the clear.
For many patients, the clarity and color of their vision right after cataract surgery is amazing. Cataract surgery has improved the lives of millions of people around the world and you could be next!
The term "corneal disease" covers the variety of conditions that affect the cornea, the clear outer layer of the eye. The cornea can often repair itself after injury or disease, but more serious conditions -- infections, degenerative diseases, deterioration -- need treatment.Learn More
Diabetic eye disease is a group of eye problems that can affect people with diabetes. These conditions include diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, and glaucoma.
Often, there are no warning signs of diabetic eye disease or vision loss when damage first develops. A full, dilated eye exam helps your doctor find and treat eye problems early—often before much vision loss can occur.
Dry eye happens when your eyes don’t make enough tears to stay wet, or when your tears don’t work correctly. This can make your eyes feel uncomfortable, and in some cases it can also cause vision problems.
Dry eye is common — it affects millions of Americans every year. The good news is that if you have dry eye, there are lots of things you can do to keep your eyes healthy and stay comfortable.
Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness for people over the age of 60. It can occur at any age but is more common in older adults.
Because vision loss due to glaucoma cannot be recovered, it's important to have regular eye exams that include measurements of your eye pressure so a diagnosis can be made in its early stages and treated appropriately. If glaucoma is recognized early, vision loss can be slowed or prevented.
