Lasik Eye surgery in CA

Lasik Eye Surgery in CA
Chances are you have heard of LASIK, but do you know what it is? LASIK surgery is used to correct vision for patients with nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

The LASIK procedure itself is quick, usually less than 15 minutes on both eyes. Patients will notice an improvement in vision with corrective eyewear in about a day. During the procedure, the eye surgeon makes a fold in the cornea and pulls it back to remove some tissue with … Continue reading

Types of Multifocal Lenses

Types of Multifocal Lenses
Multifocal lenses have revolutionized cataract surgery. In the past, patients were not given much of a say when it came to the lenses implanted after cataract surgery. In fact, the decision was left up the physician. Now, advancements in technology have made it so that patients have a large say in which lenses are used. Which multifocal lens is used depends largely on the patient’s feelings about wearing glasses after surgery. While the lens may not eliminate the need for glasses, the number of situations in which they are needed can be reduced. There are several different types of multifocal … Continue reading

Usage of Multifocal Lenses

Did you know cataract surgery is one of the most common and successful surgical procedures performed in the US each year? Traditional cataract surgery consists of removing the cloudy crystalline lens and replacing it with a monofocal intraocular lens (IOL). Typically, this lens targets distance vision which leaves patients dependent on prescription eyewear for near vision such as reading. Some of the most common approaches to cataracts surgery include: Placement of monofocal IOLs for distance in both eyes with the understanding the patient will require reading glasses Placement of a monofocal IOL targeting distance in the dominant eye and one … Continue reading

What is an IOL?

What are IOL in Laguna Hills
The human eye is complex. Similar to a camera, it focuses light on to the retina to record an image. Each portion of the eye plays an important role in your vision. The lens is a flexible tissue that allows the eye to focus and refract light so the image appears on the retina. Positioned behind the cornea and iris, the lens can change shape based on the distance of the object. The lens becomes stretched to focus on distant objects and rounded to focus on close objects. When the lens becomes cloudy, usually from a protein buildup that occurs … Continue reading

Cataract Surgery procedures

Cataracts are a clouding of vision that is common occurrence during the aging process. Cataracts are not a condition that must be treated immediately. In fact, treatment is usually only performed if the cataracts are affecting quality of life. In some cases, patients can respond well to non-surgical treatments such as corrective eyewear.

Advancements in technology have allowed cataract surgery to evolve into a highly individualized and customized procedure. Based on the patient’s eye and advancement of … Continue reading

Our patients from Lake Forest and surrounding areas learn the importance of early glaucoma diagnosis

Lake Forest Glaucoma Diagnosis
Within the diagnosis of glaucoma is a grouping of eye diseases, usually associated with pressure inside the eye, called intraocular pressure. Your ophthalmologist takes glaucoma very seriously, as conditions from this type of disease can lead to irreparable damage to the optic nerve. Once damage has occurred, it cannot be reversed. Untreated glaucoma puts you at risk of total vision loss. Many people actually experience a higher than normal intraocular pressure, called ocular hypertension. This condition, however, does not cause damage to the optic nerve, nor does it lead to the loss of vision. We do look at ocular hypertension … Continue reading

Without clear vision, your entire life can be impacted. Even if problems begin to occur in peripheral vision, and your central vision is clear, it is a problem. Should the lack of clarity within peripheral vision progress, as it can do in glaucoma, you may be left with “tunnel vision.” Problems with peripheral vision can be detected early, perhaps as difficulty seeing when a room is dimly lit, or difficulty navigating your way around when walking. A 2011 report out of Brisbane Australia shows us the significance of vision loss associated with glaucoma. Over a period of twelve months, 71 … Continue reading

Keeping our Orange County patients safe with Glaucoma testing

Orange County Glaucoma Test
Glaucoma is a challenging eye disorder for those who may have it, as this condition typically shows no significant early signs. The impact of this challenge is that glaucoma can, when not properly treated in its early stages, eventually lead to extensive damage to the optic nerve. Should the optic nerve become severely damaged by glaucoma, blindness may occur. Currently, glaucoma is topped only by cataracts as the leading cause of blindness. Before glaucoma can reach this level of severity, we can catch it during examinations in our Orange County practice, during which a standard glaucoma test is performed. We … Continue reading
