LASIK is a surgical procedure that uses a laser to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and/or astigmatism.
Cataract surgery is an operation to remove your eye’s lens when it is cloudy. The only way to remove a cataract is with surgery.
Treatment & Consult
Glaucoma is a disease that damages your eye’s optic nerve. It usually happens when fluid builds up in the front part of your eye.
To maintain a lifetime of healthy vision, the AOA recommends a comprehensive eye exam every two years for adults ages 18 to 60.
How we do it?
The first visit to the ophthalmologist is a comprehensive evaluation that will take about one and a half hours. Your visit may take longer if you need specialized testing or have complex eye problems.
COME BACK AND VISIT
Things that would be helpful to bring include your medication list, a driver, and any insurance information and cards. If you have had previous eye surgeries, please attempt to bring prior records.
All new exams normally include a dilated eye exam of both eyes. This important part of the exam will allow the doctor to look at the inside and back of the eyes and check the health of your lens, retina and optic nerve.
