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

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

If you suffer from myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism, you may benefit from #LASIK surgery. Immediately after surgery, you should notice an improvement in your vision.

#Maculardegeneration is a disease, often associated with aging, that causes a loss of vision that can lead to blindness. There is no cure for macular degeneration, but if treated early, the progression of the condition can be halted.

The vast majority of patients who undergo #LASIK emerge from the surgery and recovery period with dramatically improved vision, and without developing an infection or other surgical complications. However, due to the creation of the incisions, infection is still a real possibility, though rare.  You can reduce the potential for infection! #EyeSurgery

#Epi-LASIK and #LASEK surgery are becoming more common procedures. Study results have shown that these procedures for myopia under 7.00diopters have the same visual acuity, after 3 months, as with #LASIK.

#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.

#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

When a person's vision is blurred from #cataracts to the extent that one cannot go about his or her normal daily activities, surgery would be recommended. The cataract or cloudy lens would be extracted surgically using ultrasound and a clear foldable implant would be inserted inside the eye. #CataractSurgery
