ORA System Improves Visual Outcomes in Cataract Surgery

Patients needing cataract surgery typically get a series of eye measurements in their ophthalmologist's office prior to their date of surgery. An advanced optical ultrasound called a Lenstar or IOL Master is used to measure the size and shape of the eye, which the surgeon uses in conjunction with modern lens calculation formulas to choose an appropriate intraocular lens (IOL) implant to be used surgery.

IPL Cures Chronic, Annoying Eyelid Lump

A recent patient of ours was bothered for months by a localized swelling in her upper eyelid, known as a chalazion. Chalazia are a result of chronic inflammation in the eyelids, particularly from something called meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) or blepharitis.

Now Offering New Drop-Free Treatment for Dry Eyes

Dry eye syndrome impacts millions of Americans with a variety of symptoms including irritation, redness, blurred vision, watery eyes, sandy or gritty sensation, and light sensitivity. Some may have relatively mild symptoms, but frequent symptoms are so severe (especially in the winter months), where the quality of life is impacted.

Excessive tearing may be a sign of dry eye syndrome

For many patients with dry eye syndrome (DES), their primary symptom is excessive tearing. A healthy tear film is a necessary component to clear vision and comfortable eyes, but like anything in excess, tearing can be a real nuisance.

One question that I frequently get from patients is: "But if my eyes are dry, why are they constantly watering?" Normally we produce just enough tears to protect the cornea and create good vision.

Cloudy Vision after Cataract Surgery?

Have you had cataract surgery in the past, and are now experiencing some of the same symptoms you had prior to surgery? You may be developing a "secondary" cataract, or what we term a posterior capsule opacification (PCO). Anywhere from 30-50% of patients with a history of cataract surgery will go on to develop a PCO, generally 1-5 years after the initial surgery.
