Cataract Treatment & Cataract Surgery
Do you or someone you know suffer from cataracts? As the leading cause of blindness in the world, cataracts should be addressed as soon as possible. But how can you tell if cataracts are affecting your vision?
Some of the most common cataract symptoms include:
- Cloudy, fuzzy, foggy, or filmy vision
- Changes in the perception of colors
- Problems driving at night because headlights seem too bright
- Problems with glare from lamps or the sun
- Frequent changes in your eyeglass prescription
- Double vision
If you’re experiencing some of these symptoms, visit the Cleveland Eye Clinic at Avon Pointe for a cataract evaluation. If you are curious about cataracts, you can also take our Cataract Self-Test to see if you might have some common symptoms. We offer several highly innovative lens implants that can reduce your need for glasses. Our eye doctors can help you decide if cataract surgery is right for you, or if one of our other refractive surgery options would work better.
LASIK & PRK Surgery
Are you a candidate for LASIK surgery?
Are you affected by nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism? These common eye conditions can be corrected by LASIK (laser assisted in situ keratomileusis) surgery. As long as you are above the age of 18, have no eye health issues, and have had stable vision for the past two years, you may be a candidate for LASIK. The best way to truly find out is to schedule an evaluation or take the LASIK Self-Test here.
If you’re not a candidate for LASIK, know that we have several other options, such as PRK (photorefractive keratectomy), ICL (implantable collamer lens), RLE (refractive lens exchange), and more. You can also explore the latest innovation in laser eye surgery, SMILE (small incision lenticule extraction)! We will let you know during your consultation if SMILE is right for you. Our doctors are amongst the most experienced in the nation at performing the SMILE procedure.
The SMILE vision correction procedure allows for quick healing and recovery time, similar to LASIK. You can be confident that our eye doctors will help you find the right eye treatment for you.
Is the SMILE surgery right for me?
Some patients may have thin corneas, strong prescriptions, dry eye, or other anatomical characteristics that make them a better fit for procedures other than LASIK. If this sounds like you, then the SMILE procedure might be a great vision correction option for you. SMILE also offers additional benefits compared to other vision correction options. Schedule a consultation today to learn more.
Finding a LASIK Surgeon near Avon
If you’re looking for eye care in Avon, then it’s important that you choose an eye doctor with experience. Our eye doctors are internationally recognized and can help you decide if LASIK, PRK, or SMILE surgery can help you improve your vision.
Near Vision Treatment: KAMRA® Corneal Inlay Procedure
The KAMRA® Corneal Inlay procedure is a laser-assisted treatment for patients over age 40 with the goal of becoming less dependent on glasses for both near and far vision. First, the doctor uses a laser to create a pocket in the cornea for the positioning of the KAMRA® Corneal Inlay. The opening in the center of the KAMRA® inlay works to focus light on the retina. The KAMRA® Corneal Inlay uses the pinhole principal to help the eye see at nearpoint as well as at distance.
If you’ve experienced any of these symptoms, this might be the treatment for you:
- Trouble reading text on your phone
- Trouble focusing on anything up-close
- Eye strain when looking at screens
- The need to hold things far away to focus
Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking (CXL) Procedure
Corneal Cross-Linking is a treatment used for Keratoconus, which is an eye disease in which the cornea thins and bulges inferiorly to the pupil. A CXL Procedure helps to rebuild the collagen bonds of the cornea.
When To See an Eye Doctor for Keratoconus
Ideally, the best time to see a specialist about corneal issues such as keratoconus is at diagnosis. Patients are advised to see a doctor at least yearly to track the progression of the condition. This doesn’t mean that advanced forms of Keratoconus cannot be treated, though the treatment may be more involved. Patients with the most advanced stages of keratoconus may require a corneal transplant.
Symptoms of corneal issues such as Keratoconus include:
- Blurry vision
- Frequent changes in eyeglass prescription
- Extreme sensitivity to light
- Sudden worsening or clouding of vision
Diabetic retinopathy Treatment
If you have diabetes, then you would benefit from regular eye exams to catch any signs or symptoms of diabetic retinopathy. This disease is caused by swelling and leaking blood vessels in your retina. It’s often caused by high blood pressure that can damage these blood vessels. diabetic retinopathy utilizes a laser to seal these blood vessels around the retina and is a generally short treatment.
Symptoms of diabetic retinopathy include:
- Blurred vision
- Dark or empty spots in your vision
- Loss of vision
In some cases, symptoms and signs don’t appear for a long time, making regular exams vital for those with diabetes. Surgery combined with appropriate follow-up care can help reduce the risk of blindness by 90 percent.
