Castle Rock LASIK
LASIK, a form of refractive surgery, is an popular option for vision correction, often eliminating the need to wear glasses or contact lenses. Simply put, LASIK reshapes the cornea with a laser.
Refractive Surgery Procedures
Other surgical alternatives have become available. Among these is a technique called phakic IOL implantation which involves implanting a lens behind the cornea, but in front of the iris. With this new option, many of those who were too highly nearsighted for LASIK are now candidates for refractive surgery.

Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) in Castle Rock
Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) is a great advancement in refractive therapy options. CRT allows you to see clearly during the day without glasses or contact lenses. Specially designed therapeutic lenses gently reshape the front surface of your eye while you sleep.
Imagine great vision all day without contacts, glasses, or surgery. No more problems from dust, allergies, or dryness. CRT has also been shown to slow the progression of nearsightedness in children and teenagers
Over half of all Americans over the age of 65 suffer from cataracts, a condition in which the eye’s natural lens becomes cloudy. The lens becomes cloudy due to the accumulation of protein.
Loss of vision from cataracts is progressive and painless. As we age, our lenses naturally cloud, causing a gradual deterioration of vision in people over 65. Capillaries, on the other hand, do not belong to the natural aging process, and need to be treated promptly. Capillaries have no known cause, but may develop as a result of a certain medication, illness (such as diabetes), prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light, or smoking.
Cataract Surgery in Castle Rock, CO
A miniaturized procedure for cataract surgery is to numb the eyes with anesthesia and then insert an ultrasonic probe through a small incision. Cloudy lenses are emulsified into tiny bits by the probe, which is then sucking them out. A new artificial lens is implanted into the eye once the cloudy lens has been removed. This type of lens is an intraocular (IOL) lens, and it is usually inserted through the same incision as the one that removed the old lens.
Premium Lens Implants
An artificial lens is implanted in the eye to replace the cloudy natural lens during cataract surgery. For near vision, these intraocular lenses (IOLs) were previously only effective for correcting distance vision, leaving patients dependent on eyeglasses or contacts. Along with suffering from nearsightedness or farsightedness, many cataract patients also suffer from presbyopia, a natural change to the eyes that occurs with aging.
Diabetic Eye Exams
Damaged vessels may eventually be replaced by fragile new vessels. A blood vessel can burst, causing a hemorrhage that can make vision blurred or even cause blindness.
Risk Factors & Treatment
Every diabetic patient should undergo an eye examination at least once a year. A medical management plan, such as laser treatment and other surgeries, can help preserve vision in diabetics with diabetic retinopathy. Diabetes patients are also at higher risk of developing cataracts and glaucoma at a younger age, in addition to diabetic retinopathy. Controlling blood sugar levels is very important for diabetics. You’ll be less likely to get diabetic eye disease and other complications affecting the heart, kidney, and other organs if you do this.
