Conditions & Procedures
This disease causes vision loss. It affects the center of your visual field. It usually affects both eyes, but in some people only one eye is affected. This type of degeneration is a gradual thinning and breaking down of the macula. The macula is part of the light-sensitive retina tissue that sees fine details in the center of your visual field.
This disease causes vision loss. It affects the center of your visual field. Of the two types of AMD, it is the more advanced type. It usually affects both eyes, but in some people only one eye is affected. This type of degeneration is an abnormal buildup of fluid beneath the macula. The macula is part of the light-sensitive retina tissue that sees fine details in the center of your visual field.
This disorder is a misalignment of the eyes. They don't line up to look at the same thing at the same time. They don't give a focused view. When one eye doesn't align properly, it's commonly called a "lazy eye." Strabismus is often noticed shortly after birth. But it can develop later in children and in adults.
CK is an in-office procedure designed to aid people over age 40 who have good distance vision but now have trouble seeing up close for reading and other near tasks (a condition called presbyopia). Less commonly, CK can also be used to correct farsightedness (hyperopia). The procedure lasts about three minutes.
This is a surgery to improve your vision. It's typically used for people over age 40 who have very poor eyesight because of the way their eyes focus light. It can help if you have trouble seeing things up close or far away. Unlike LASIK, which reshapes your cornea, this surgery replaces the lens inside your eye. This procedure is quick, painless, and you can go home the same day.
This procedure removes the vitreous humor (the thick, jelly-like fluid in the eye's rear chamber). Vitrectomy is used to treat a variety of eye problems, most commonly when the vitreous humor has grown cloudy or has filled with blood from a hemorrhage. Vitrectomy is performed in an operating room under local or general anesthesia. It usually takes one to two hours to complete.
