Eye surgeon in Laguna Hills is adept at diagnosing and treating common causes of vision loss

Covering Eye of Patient, Laguna Hills Eye Surgeon
Ophthalmologists diagnose and treat eye diseases, perform surgeries to restore vision, and prescribe and fit glasses and contacts for vision correction. While dozens of diseases may be identified and effectively managed and treated by ophthalmologists in Laguna Hills, eye surgeon Dr. George Salib and his team at the Orange County Eye Institute are uniquely equipped to address one of the most common causes of vision loss, affecting more than half of all Americans aged 80 and older: cataracts.

Diagnosis

Dr. Salib encourages a complete eye exam annually. He assesses changes to your eyes and determines if they are related to cataracts or other conditions. While cataracts are commonly referred to as an "age-related" condition, they don’t affect only older people. Middle-aged Americans can develop this clouding of the lens, but in your 40s and 50s cataracts are typically small.

Many habits that are bad for your body are also bad for your eyes. Consider cataract risk factors, such as unprotected exposure to UV light, poorly-managed diabetes, smoking, excess weight, hypertension, and excessive alcohol use.

Dr. Salib's advanced, onsite diagnostics center can confirm if cataracts or other conditions are responsible for your blurriness, poor night vision, and other changes. Macular degeneration and glaucoma feature some of the same symptoms as cataracts, including difficulty adjusting to low-light levels and halos around lights. Many people who need cataract surgery also need treatment for other eye diseases.

Treatment

There are no truly noninvasive approaches to treat cataracts. The only way to treat diagnosed cataracts is with surgery, which is common, well-tolerated, and performed on an outpatient basis. Dr. Salib is known for his use of the Femto laser system for precision surgery, and for his use of premium intraocular lenses, to replace the damaged natural lens.
