Premium Cataract Surgery
We are all born with a natural clear lens inside our eyes. Usually starting in our 40’s and 50’s, this lens can gradually grow cloudy as we age and eventually degrade the quality of our vision. If severe enough, this progressive cloudiness may even impact our activities of daily living. In medical terms, the lens becomes a cataract when it begins to opacify, and the different patterns of opacification determines the type of cataract.
Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) Contact Lenses
Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT), or Orthokeratology, or Ortho-K, uses hard contact lenses to reshape the curvature of the cornea, the front surface of the eye. The lenses flatten the cornea so that the light rays can focus further back in the eye, which are long in myopic patients. They therefore reduce myopia and make distance vision clearer. The patient wears the contact lenses during sleep for 7 to 8 hours each night and they gradually reshape the cornea over a period of 7 to 14 days.
Glaucoma consists of a group of diseases characterized by progressive damage of the optic nerve and results in progressive loss of visual field and ultimately visual acuity. The optic nerve plays a vital role in vision and is located in the back of the eye. It connects the visual apparatus of the eye to the brain and transmits visual information to the central processing centers.
Diabetic Eye Exams
The current recommendation is that all diabetic patients should have a dilated eye exam once a year to check for diabetic retinopathy (diabetic disease of the retina) or more frequently if retinopathy already exists. Diabetes is a systemic disease characterized by elevated sugar in the blood and can negatively impact any organ in the body, such as the eye, by damaging the inner linings of small blood vessels.
