Orange County Eye InstituteRating : 5
"There was immediate and amazing improvement. My eye sight was far better than it had been previously. I hadn't realized that colors were distorted until I saw them in all their splendor! I drive down the street and I can read all the street signs, and objects are once again clear and distinct. I highly recommend Dr. Salib and the Orange County Eye Institute knowing that the care, knowledge, skills and professionalism they provide are of the highest quality. Unparalleled professionalism and life-changing competence and care."
Glaucoma is a condition of the eye where the pressure in the eye affects the optic nerve that lets you see, affecting your peripheral vision. We provide the latest in laser therapy, called Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty or SLT, to treat this condition effectively, allowing the patient to better control their eye pressure. This laser is conveniently performed in the clinic with only eye drops used to numb your eyes, and it usually only takes but a few minutes.
We also perform preventative laser treatments that are vital in preventing what is called an acute angle closure attack, which is essentially a fancy way of saying that the channels through which fluid exits to lower the pressure in your eye gets blocked. This procedure, called Laser Peripheral Iridotomy or LPI, is highly effective in preventing this blockage from affecting your eyes. We carefully examine patients to see if they are prone to experiencing this closure, and then we advise you on your options. This is also performed using only eye drops to numb the eyes and takes a few minutes in the clinic.
At times after cataract surgery, the capsule that used to contain the cataract (the natural lens of the eye that has gotten cloudy), and that now contains the lens implant, gets cloudy itself. Normally, in cataract surgery, we remove the cataract from its natural capsule and place the clear lens implant in the capsule to hold it in place. Depending on the body's healing response, this capsule can get cloudy, decreasing vision and making it as if you are looking through a frosted glass. With just eye drops to numb your eye, we perform a painless laser treatment, called YAG capsulotomy, to clear up the capsule and restore good vision to you in the clinic.
