At Eye Town, we know that annual exams are the best way to rule out disease and to keep eyes healthy in order to prevent disease in kids and adults. Glaucoma, which mostly affects adults over the age of 40, may come on slowly and without warning, so we recommend coming in at least once per year for an annual exam. If you are suffering from glaucoma we can offer you Cedar City UT laser surgery for glaucoma.
Glaucoma is the number one cause of blindness in the U.S. today. It can lead to permanent vision loss and other vision impairments if it is not treated or caught when it first starts. There are no warning signs and it often happen without any vision loss. Glaucoma cannot be cured but eye surgery can help to alleviate symptoms and stop vision loss before it starts. At Eye Town, we test and diagnose for glaucoma as well other eye conditions, such as cataracts. Cataracts are caused by clouding in the lens of the eye. As the cataracts progress, patients may experience impaired vision.Cataracts can be repaired with surgery as well. The surgery removes the clouded lens and implants an artificial lens in its place, creating clearer vision. Cataract surgery can be done in under an hour and patients are usually in and out of the office quickly. Local anesthesia is used, and after the procedure most patients experience very good vision.
Glaucoma surgery is quick and simple and can be done in our offices by our trusted eye surgeon. Call our offices today for an appointment to check for glaucoma or macular degeneration.
