Gainesville Eye Associates announces its innovative bladeless laser cataract surgery. Gainesville Eye Associates is the first Georgia Eye Clinic to perform this advanced surgery which takes approximately 15 minutes to undergo. Recovery time is minimal for patients who have this in-office procedure. Doctors who perform the procedure can safely remove the cataract and accurately place the lens. Because the lasers work with such precision, the procedure is safer, takes less time to perform and there is less chance of a patient developing astigmatism or other eye issues as a result of the cataract surgery.
The doctors at the Gainesville Eye Center are medical doctors or doctors of optometry. They have vast experience in working with patient’s eyes. They work with each patient to ensure their individual eye needs are met and that the patient thoroughly understands all recommended procedures.
Besides the bladeless laser cataract surgery, doctors at the eye surgery center perform other procedures. Patients can undergo Lasik corrective vision surgery which improves their vision and eliminates or reduces the need for glasses or contacts. Patients with vision problems may also be candidates for artificial lenses that can improve their vision and reduce instances of near sightedness or far sightedness. Since most patients only have one or the other, having an artificial lens for one focal point is optimal. The success rate is high for the ReSTOR Lens implant with 80 percent of patients reporting that they no longer needed glasses after the surgery.
Patients who undergo cataract surgery may be candidates for a multi-focal lens implant such as TECNIS. This implant improves vision and can reduce or even eliminate the need for glasses after cataract surgery. The eye specialists at Gainesville Eye Associates are committed to performing these innovative procedures on patients and they provide experience and knowledge to their patients.
Besides detailed eye surgeries, the doctors at Gainesville Eye Associates are also experienced in Botox procedures and eye lid surgeries which will enhance the look of the eye area. Eye lid surgery can also improve a person’s vision as fat and tissue are removed which may be causing vision obstructions. If droopy eye lids or eyelids that turn inward or outward are causing problems with your vision, you may be a candidate for surgery. Botox injections will relax the muscles around the eye area to reduce wrinkles and fine lines for patients. Because Botox is a temporary solution, patients generally need to have the procedure performed more than once for maintenance.
Other serious eye conditions that may require treatment include glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy or macular degeneration. These diseases must be treated by doctors who are experienced in the signs and symptoms and the treatments of the conditions. If you are diabetic, blood sugar fluctuations can affect your vision so early detection is vital. If you have family history of these diseases, the eye care specialists at Gainesville Eye Associates can work with you on a treatment plan.
Besides specialized eye issues, the doctors also see patients who need glasses, contact lenses or Latisse treatment for longer eye lashes.
