Cataract formation can cause the clear lens in your eye to become clouded. This can impair your vision, affecting your daily living and your well-being. Protein breakdown in the lens of the eye causes the formation of cataracts. The breakdown of protein is typically paired with changes in the eye’s natural lens, including flexibility, transparency, and thickness, causing the formation of cataracts.
Many leading factors can cause the development of cataracts. The leading cause of cataracts is aging eyes. Other causes of cataract formation include sun exposure, eye diseases, usage of certain medications like corticosteroids, eye surgery, and eye injury.
Laser cataract surgery is the most effective method for treating cataracts. At Anh Nguyen Ophthalmology, our ophthalmologists perform surgery to break up cataracts that cloud your vision. This is then replaced with an intraocular lens implant that corrects other vision-related issues simultaneously as surgery. This can also help with other eye conditions, including astigmatism and presbyopia.
Our expert ophthalmologists and optometrists treat various eye conditions with highly acclaimed surgical procedures and state-of-the-art treatment plans. Some of the most common eye disorders include:
There are a wide variety of eye conditions that affect the cornea, including:
Dry eye is a common eye condition that develops in older individuals. A lack of moisture and lubrication causes this eye condition. Dry eyes can lead to eye irritation, inflammation, and scarring on the eye’s surface.
Keratoconus is an eye condition that causes thin, unstable corneas. This can cause the cornea to bulge and morph into a cone-like shape, causing blurry vision.
Pterygium is UV ray damage to the eyes. Many individuals who develop this condition spend much time near water and experience damage over time. This causes a flesh-like pink growth to develop in the white of the eyes. This condition can affect your vision and irritate your eyes.
Keratitis, also called a corneal ulcer, is an irritated or inflamed cornea. Highly prone to infection, this condition is the most common cause of corneal blindness.
Fuch’s Dystrophy occurs when the cornea thickens, causing your vision to become cloudy. This condition is caused by fluid buildup in the cornea.
Deep scratches, burns, lacerations, diseases, and improper use of contact lenses can cause corneal scarring.
Retina disorders that we address include:
Macular degeneration is an age-related condition and an eye disease that can cause blurred central vision. During aging, damage to the macula occurs, causing blurred vision.
Diabetic retinopathy is an eye condition that occurs in individuals with diabetes. Diabetes can cause changes in the blood vessels in the retina, causing vision loss and blindness.
Retinal detachment is an emergency that causes the retina to pull away from the connected blood vessels that provide the necessary oxygen and nutrients.
Macular pucker is scar tissue on the macula. This is in the retina and can affect the sharp vision needed for driving and reading. This condition can cause blurred and distorted central vision.
Floaters and flashes can cause spots to appear in your vision. Floaters stand out against light and are caused by tiny specks of collagen in the vitreous area in the back of the eye.
ICL surgery involves the implantation of a collamer lens. Placed in front of the natural lens in your eye and behind the iris, this treatment is ideal for correcting any refractive errors. This treatment is ideal for habitual contact wearers and those considering laser eye surgery.
Ptosis is a condition that develops when the upper eyelid muscles are weakened, causing the upper lid to droop. Ptosis surgery or blepharoplasty can be performed to lift the upper eyelid and improve vision.
Glaucoma is an eye disease that develops from a blockage in the eye that causes fluid buildup. As the fluid levels in the eye increase, the pressure inside the eye increases, which puts pressure on the optic nerves. Glaucoma can be treated with prescription eye drops and laser surgery.
