A cataract is the natural lens in the eye becoming cloudy. They are primarily due to age, but can be due to other factors such as trauma, diabetes, and steroid medications. They can affect your vision in many different ways.
Glaucoma is a term that encompasses a host of diseases that damage the optic nerve in the eye and affect your vision. Often, the disease is painless and does not present with obvious symptoms until vision loss has already started.
Thankfully, not every patient requires specialist care. Dr. Dwarakanathan, Dr. Wang and Dr. Diab are both fully board-certified ophthalmologists capable of treating a variety of medical eye problems in addition to their respective specialties. A thorough eye examination can screen for many disorders or detect ocular findings related to known diseases.
LASIK and PRK are both laser eye surgeries that aim to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses and contact lenses by reshaping the corneas with an excimer laser. As a result of wavefront technology, LASIK and PRK can also correct common vision errors, like nearsightedness and farsightedness, with or without astigmatism.
