#DidYouKnow #Monovision is a treatment for people over the age of 40 who are affected by presbyopia or the need to wear reading glasses. Monovision can also be used after cataract surgery to set one intraocular lens for distance and one for reading. #Ophthalmology

Contact lenses are safe and effective, and are a wonderful alternative to eyeglasses for individuals who, for whatever reason, are hesitant to wear them all day long. #ContactLenses #Ophthalmologist

A cataract is a clouding of the eye's natural lens. If left untreated, the cataract can worsen over time, severely blurring vision. #Cataractsurgery should be considered when cataracts cause enough loss of vision to interfere with your daily activities. #Ophthalmologist

#DidYouKnow Wavefront-guided laser surgery has been FDA approved for nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism in low to moderate amounts and the results are excellent. #LASIKsurgery #LaserVisionCorrection

The most important step when considering #laservisioncorrection surgery is to be evaluated to see if you are a candidate, as approximately one out of three people considering surgery should not have it done. An #ophthalmologist can help you decide if surgery is right for you.

Custom wavefront LASIK uses advanced technology to address both common visual errors (i.e., nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism) as well as higher order aberrations, which are tiny flaws in the shape of the cornea that are unique to each individual eye. The precision afforded by wavefront technology reduces the risk of side effects and complications while dramatically increasing the chances of achieving optimal results. #LASIKSurgery #Ophthalmologist

Surgery is the only way a #cataract can be removed. However, if symptoms of a cataract are not bothering you very much, #cataractsurgery may not be needed. #VisionCorrection

#Glaucoma is a general term for a family of eye diseases, which, in most cases, lead to increased pressure within the eye and, as a result, damage the optic nerve. While it cannot be prevented, regular, complete eye examinations by an eye specialist can lead to early detection - and #glaucomatreatment often prevents loss of sight.

If you suffer from myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism, you may benefit from #LASIK surgery. In LASIK surgery, the shape of the cornea is modified to correct for abnormal light refraction onto the retina. #LaserVisionCorrection

#Intraocularlenses, or #IOLs, are artificial lenses that are inserted into the eyes in place of the natural ocular lenses. #MultifocalIOLs are unique in that they restore near, intermediate, and far vision, reducing or eliminating the need for reading glasses. #VisionCorrection
