Cataracts are the leading cause of vision loss in people over the age of 55. In the United States, 75 percent of all people over the age of 60 show signs of cataracts as a normal consequence of aging. Other factors can also contribute to cataract development. These include genetics, excessive UV exposure, diabetes, tobacco use, some medications (such as steroids), and other eye diseases. Cataracts are treated by surgery when a change of glasses no longer help.
Refractive surgery, the name for all vision correction surgeries, includes a variety of procedures. These options include LASIK, CustomVue™ LASIK, PRK, and implant procedures such as Visian® ICL (implantable contact lens), Refractive Lens Exchange and KAMRA. Each patient will meet with a refractive technician to customize your visual plan.
Refractive surgery is the term used to describe surgical procedures that correct common vision problems (nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia) to reduce your dependence on prescription eyeglasses and/or contact lenses.
LASIK / CustomVue
LASIK is corrective surgery to a very delicate part of the eye. Millions of people have had LASIK surgery to correct their vision and experienced great success. In LASIK treatments, an eye surgeon makes an incision (with either a laser or a blade) into the cornea to create a flap of tissue in order to carefully reshape the layers of the cornea to repair imperfections in curvature that lead to distorted vision. If you have questions about LASIK, give us a call.
The CustomVue procedure uses WaveScan-based technology to measure not only nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, but also higher order distortions in the vision. CustomVue procedure involves the same process as LASIK, but treats your vision more “custom” like a fingerprint.
PRK treats refractive errors on the surface of the cornea.
