Cataracts are a clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye. Surgery involves removing the cloudy natural lens and replacing it with a clear artificial lens, called an intraocular lens (IOL). Cataract surgery is a delicate procedure, but is one of the safest surgeries, with a better than 95% success rate.
Elmquist Eye Group is proud to offer bladeless laser-assisted cataract surgery using the LensSx platform which is designed to make the procedure even more precise, safe and accurate and provide you with the best possible visual outcome. Developed by Alcon, the FDA-approved procedure uses the same femtosecond laser technology that is used in bladeless LASIK surgery.
If your goal is to reduce your dependency on contact lenses or glasses, LASIK is the most technologically advanced option.
At Elmquist Eye Group, our preferred technique for laser vision correction is the state-of-the-art all-laser LASIK procedure, which alters the curvature of your cornea by means of cool laser beams instead of a surgical blade. We believe it offers our patients an unprecedented level of safety, comfort and precision.
The entire procedure takes 15-30 minutes and all-laser LASIK surgery is painless and quick. Artificial tears and a good night’s sleep can alleviate any minor discomfort you might feel after surgery. Most people will be able to return to normal exercise routines, work, and driving within 24-48 hours.
Glaucoma is often called the “silent thief of sight.” Because symptoms are usually not painful or noticeable, glaucoma is often not detected until irreversible damage has already occurred.
Glaucoma occurs when pressure builds up inside the eye, leading to progressive optic nerve and retinal damage and vision loss. To effectively treat glaucoma, the internal eye pressure must be lowered. The choice of a treatment will depend on how advanced the glaucoma is, the overall state of the eye, and the preference and lifestyle of the patient.
In addition to other treatments, Elmquist Eye Group provides laser surgery for the treatment of glaucoma. We will discuss the treatment options with you and help you decide which may be best for you. Loss of sight from glaucoma can often be prevented with early treatment.
