Cataracts (Cataract Surgery)

Cataracts occur when proteins accumulate in the eye’s natural lens, causing the lens to become clouded. Cataracts usually occur during or after middle age, but they can occur in childhood, albeit rarely. Although cataracts are not preventable, they are treatable, most often with cataract surgery (placement of IOLs).

MORE ON CATARACTS

Intraocular lenses (IOLs)

Intraocular lenses (IOLs) are artificial devices used in the treatment of cataracts. They are artificial lenses that are implanted into the eyes to replace the natural lens after cataract surgery. IOLs (including mono- and multifocal lens implants such as ReSTOR® and Crystalens®) are designed to bend and flex like the natural lens.If you are a candidate for cataract surgery, Dr. Rosenblum and our staff will help you determine which option is best suited to your needs. Surgery is performed on an outpatient basis in Salinas or Monterey.

Presbyopia

Presbyopia is a common age-related vision problem caused by the hardening of the eye’s lens. Since this hardening decreases the eye’s ability to focus on up-close objects, presbyopia is sometimes referred to as age-related farsightedness. Presbyopia should not be confused with hyperopia, since the latter is caused by flaws in the shape of the cornea.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a progressive eye disease caused by flaws in the eye’s drainage system. Fluids accumulate, causing intraocular pressure (IOP) to build. Over time, elevated IOP places pressure on the optic nerve, which can cause blindness if left untreated. Although glaucoma is not preventable, it can be managed clinically with medicines and laser surgery. Please contact Monterey County Eye Associates for further information about how we can help glaucoma sufferers.

Refractive Surgery

Refractive surgery treats problems caused by a misshaped cornea, including myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. Depending on the structure of the patient’s eye, the problem to be addressed, and the medical history of the patient, surgeries including LASIK and AK may offer the best chance of good results and minimal side effects. Implantable contact lenses are also a treatment option for myopia.
