While I am every bit as excited as the patient after successful cataract surgery, and inherently optimistic as well, it is necessary to caution patients that the above-mentioned phrase does not always apply. Barring even the unforeseen, most patients, at some point in the future, will require a procedure called a Capsulotomy for the condition [...]

Absolutely, Let’s Do It With the Laser!

By | 2018-11-26T14:48:56+00:00 January 1st, 2014|Categories: Ophthalmology|

Early in 2013, I wrote a blog piece about the addition of femtosecond laser technology as an adjunct to our traditional technique of phacoemulsification cataract surgery.  Now, I would like to revisit this concept and share my experience of the past several months with you.  I am currently certified to use both the Alcon LenSx [...]

What Exactly Is Glaucoma?

By | 2017-10-16T14:49:31+00:00 August 29th, 2013|Categories: Ophthalmology|

   When patients are at the office for their eye exam, we measure the eye( or intraocular) pressure and the question frequently arises as to why we are doing this .  The answer is that we are screening for glaucoma.  Subsequently, this generates another question which is, "What exactly is glaucoma?"      Glaucoma is [...]

Modern cataract surgery continues to steadily improve as far as both results and safety.  Arguably, it is the best surgery known to mankind.  Our current technique, phaco emulsification,  involves the use of ultrasound power to break up the cloudy lens and it is then aspirated through the same tiny incision.  Until recently, despite the assumption [...]

Cataract surgery is the most wonderful surgery on the planet in that it restores one's vision, sometimes even without the assistance of eyeglasses.  Further, this is accomplished in a very short procedure and with very little pain.  Nevertheless, one's expectations must be reasonable in that it truly is a surgical procedure and some recovery period [...]

Many patients have a great deal of anxiety about the day of surgery and what it will be like.  This,of course,is very understandable.  Knowing  what to expect, ahead of time, can greatly reduce the stress level.
