The word Cataract is used to describe a natural “crystalline lens” that has turned cloudy. Cataracts are not a disease, but rather a condition affecting the eye. In the United States, the incidence of age-related Cataract has been reported to be approximately 42% in those aged 52 to 64, 60% in those aged 65 to 74 and 91% in those aged 75 to 85.
Laser Vision Correction is eye surgery to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. LASIK, or “lamellar eye surgery”, is performed between the layers of corneal tissue; the cornea is reshaped using laser technology for light rays to be focused in a crisp image, minimizing the need for an optical prescription.
Cornea Collagen Cross-linking
Corneal Collagen Cross-linking is an in-office surgical procedure for eyes that have been damaged by keratoconus. Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking is performed by applying a liquid riboflavin (Vitamin B2) to the surface of the eye, followed by treatment with a controlled ultraviolet light.
