Laser Eye Treatments
There are several eye conditions that a patient may develop that can only be corrected through laser eye surgery. Some of these conditions include glaucoma or cataracts. We provide the very best and latest in laser therapy for the treatment of glaucoma through what is termed Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (or SLT) which is performed in-clinic using nothing more than some eye drops to numb the eye which will receive the treatment. It’s incredibly time efficient, normally only lasting a few minutes. This procedure allows the patient to better control their eye pressure, relieving the optic nerve and broadening your vision. Additional treatments we offer include Laser Peripheral Iridotomy (or LPI), which can be used as a preventative measure.
A pterygium is a growth, whitish-red in color, that comes from the conjunctiva and grows into the cornea. Typically, a pterygium is caused by excess sun exposure but is not a critical eye issue until it begins to grow close to the center of the eye or begins to cause significant discomfort. In several cases surgery is not required, and sunglasses to minimize sun exposure can correct it. In cases when surgery is required, it’s a simple outpatient procedure requiring local anesthesia. Our specialists have performed a huge amount of these removals and are incredibly successful at doing so.
Glaucoma is a significant issue that impacts a large portion of the population. Glaucoma occurs when pressure in the eye becomes so great that it begins to impact the optic nerve and you begin to lose the ability to see. You’ll notice it affecting your peripheral vision initially but, as it gets worse, so will your overall vision. Not only do we offer state-of-the-art testing equipment to diagnose your glaucoma, but we offer proven and successful treatment options including an incredibly precise and effective laser treatment designed to relieve the pressure and restore your sight.
