LASIK and Cataract Co-management
Our optometrists also provide co-management services for cataract surgery. We work with several trusted, leading cataract surgeons in the area and will conveniently provide the post-operative care in our office. A cataract is a clouding of the crystalline lens that develops in the eye. Cataracts vary in degree from minimal opacity to complete opacity and obstruct the passage of light into the eye. As a cataract becomes more opaque, clear vision is compromised. The only treatment for cataracts is surgery. Our doctors evaluate the eyes annually to check for and monitor cataracts. Once we determine its time for surgery we will refer you to a highly trained surgeon for the procedure.
