Cataract surgery is designed to treat the clouding of the lens of the eye, which inhibits light from passing through to the retina normally. Elmquist Eye Group offers refractive laser-assisted cataract surgery, which is designed to make cataract surgery very precise, safe and accurate. While traditional cataract surgery provides excellent results, this revolutionary procedure enhances our ability to offer patients at Elmquist Eye Group the best possible visual outcomes.
LASIK is a type of refractive surgery, which means it is used to correct refractive errors in the eye that prevent the eye from focusing light properly. During the procedure, a laser is used to re-shape the curvature of the cornea and correct the refractive error. At Elmquist Eye Group, we prefer all-laser LASIK, also called “bladeless” LASIK. This state-of-the-art technique is the most technologically advanced and safest way of performing LASIK surgery.
Glaucoma Laser Surgery
Although eye drops and medication are helpful for most glaucoma patients, glaucoma laser surgery can be very effective depending on the type and severity of your glaucoma and the general health of your eyes and may be used alone or in addition to medications. Laser trabeculoplasty is the most common laser surgery for the treatment of open-angle glaucoma. Laser iridotomy is most appropriate for closed-angle glaucoma.
Upper Eyelid Surgery
Upper eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to add or remove fat deposits and sagging, loose skin from the upper eyelids to reverse the signs of aging. In the US, it is one of the most common cosmetic procedures and can address issues such as fine lines and wrinkles, puffiness in the eyelid area, and eyelids that droop into your field of vision, to give your eyes a more refreshed and youthful look.
