When the clear lens of the eye becomes opaque, it is called a cataract. The cloudy lens interferes with the transmission of light rays through the lens and causes a blurred image on the retina. This leads to a reduction in visual acuity. The majority of cataracts form as part of the normal aging process.
This is an intra-ocular lens procedure which consists of the implantation of artificial lenses without removing the normal lens. This procedure eliminates the need for glasses and contact lenses. This is mostly for extreme cases currently wearing thick glasses or contact lenses.
The cornea is the clear front part of the eye that allows light to enter the eye without any interference. In some conditions the cornea may become cloudy or irregular and cause blindness. Doing a corneal transplant and replacing the hazy cornea with a clear donor cornea can restore vision and function.
The retina is the layer at the back of the eye that sends the information of the image seen to the brain. Sometimes this layer can become detached and balloons into the inside cavity of the eye. This interferes with its function and that part of the eye cannot see. If this becomes longstanding the visual loss will become permanent.
Short description for On site technology.
Lasik stands for laser assisted in situ keratomileusis. This technology offers new hope for sight without complete dependence upon corrective eyewear. We employ the latest wave-front technology to perform customized surface ablation in order to ensure maximum patient satisfaction.
