EYE CARE EXCELLENCE


Glaucoma

If you are concerned about open angle or narrow angle glaucoma, our center will advise you on the proper course of action. Our website section on glaucoma is the most detailed summary of glaucoma anywhere on the web. We are specialists in this highly challenging field of glaucoma suspect and glaucoma management. Most cases can be managed with observation or eye drops.

For patients requiring procedures, SLT (selective laser trabeculoplasty) and the I-stent are used for mild to moderate cases. Trabeculectomy with antimetabolites are used for more advanced glaucoma. Each procedure entails risk and benefits that should be discussed with your surgeon.

Cataract

A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens of the eye.  Early symptoms include glare and blurred vision.  Things appear darker and not as crisp as before (loss of contrast sensitivity).

As a general rule we recommend waiting until vision drops to 20/40 or below, but there are exceptions.

With improvements in outcomes, patients are seeking treatment at earlier stages than in the past.  After the cataract is removed, an intraocular lens (IOL) is implanted.  IOL’s are available in aspheric, toric, multifocal and extended depth of vision versions.  We will review these options with you during your consultation.

Minor Eyelid Surgery

Whether you have a stye, chalazion, eyelid cyst, nevus, or other disturbing eyelid lesion, this needs careful attention by an oculoplastic surgeon.

In contrast to cauterization or freezing done by dermatologists, our procedures require an incision.

Our specialized equipment includes a radiofrequency unit which cuts and cauterizes simultaneously.

We also utilize an operating microscope that magnifies the surgical field 2 to 3-fold.

Two doctors will be scrubbed for your procedure. Our rate of recurrence is extremely low, with fast recovery time and excellent cosmesis.
