Common Types of Eye Surgery Performed at Our Tenaya Location
LASIK and PRK
Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) are popular elective surgeries that many choose as an alternative to wearing glasses or contacts. These surgeries retractive errors including, farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatism by reshaping the cornea.
If a cloudy film has begun to form on the natural lens of your eye, you may have cataracts. As the eyes age, this condition becomes increasingly common and makes daily tasks such as driving, cooking and navigating anywhere more difficult and potentially dangerous. Cataract surgery is a straightforward procedure that lifts the "clouded" lens and replaces it with an artificial lens. This can be done using laser surgery, and recovery time is relatively fast.
At Brimhall Eye, many cases of glaucoma are discovered by our optometrist, Dr. Andrea Radke, O.D., as part of a standard, comprehensive eye exam. In treating glaucoma, we lower and monitor pressure on the optic nerve to prevent the disease from progressing. Depending on your individual situation, we may prescribe medicated eye drops, medications such as beta blockers, surgery, laser treatments or other therapies.
Other surgeries we perform include;
- Eye Muscle Surgery a common surgery used to help correct cases of lazy eye.
- Blocked Tear Duct Surgery,
- Eye Lid Surgery
- Retinal laser photocoagulation for retinal disorders including diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration.
