Cataracts are very common, affecting most people over the age of 65. Cataract surgery replaces the clouded lens with a new clear artificial one. Cataract surgery is among the most commonly-performed in medicine, plus, technological advances have made the procedure even more safe and successful.
The retina is a light-sensitive tissue that lines the inner surface of the eye. When the light passes through the cornea it strikes the retina and this creates a chemical and electrical trigger of nerve impulses which are sent to the brain through fiber of optic nerves and this creates an image.
Glaucoma affects the optic nerve and is a leading cause of blindness in the United States. Fortunately there are several options to treat glaucoma and early treatment can often prevent loss of sight.
The cornea is the clear layer of tissue covering the front of your eye. It refracts light rays as they enter the eye so they are focused on the retina. If your cornea has become clouded or damaged as a result of disease, infection or injury, it may need specialized treatment.
Robson Eye Institute specializes in procedures that can correct vision issues related to obstructions such as sagging eyelids, as well as cosmetic procedures that improve patient appearance and confidence. Most procedures that improve vision typically have aesthetic benefits as well.
Do you have dry eyes? You’re not alone. Up to 12 million Americans suffer from a condition called Dry Eye Disease or Ocular Surface Disease. The doctors at Robson Eye Institute have the latest in technology to diagnose and manage or treat dry eye symptoms.
