You may have cataracts if you notice blurry or foggy vision. Cataracts can cause the clear lens in your eye to become white and clouded. Having a cataract-ridden lens can impair your eye health by affecting your vision and your overall well-being. Cataracts are formed due to protein breakdown in the lens of the eye. The breakdown of protein is commonly accompanied by changes in the flexibility, transparency, and thickness of your eye’s natural lens.
The number one cause of cataract development is the aging of the eyes. Other common causes of cataracts include sun exposure, eye diseases, usage of certain medications, eye surgery, and eye injury.
Cataract surgery with laser technology is the most effective method for treating cataracts. At Anh Nguyen Ophthalmology, our eye care specialists perform surgery to remove cataracts that cloud your vision. The eye’s clouded lens is extracted and replaced with an intraocular lens implant during surgery. This artificial lens implant corrects other vision-related issues, including astigmatism and presbyopia.
Our skilled ophthalmologists and optometrists treat eye conditions with top-of-the-line surgical procedures and personalized treatment plans. Some of the most common eye disorders that we treat include:
There are a wide variety of eye conditions that affect the cornea, including:
Dry eye is a common eye condition that develops in aging individuals. An absence of moisture and lubrication in the eye causes dryness to occur. Dry eyes can cause eye irritation, inflammation, and scarring.
Keratoconus is an eye condition involving thin, unstable corneas. Keratoconus can cause the cornea to bulge and morph into a cone-like shape, causing blurred vision.
Pterygium involves sun damage to the eyes. Many patients who develop this eye condition spend a lot of time near water and experience gradual eye damage over time. Because water reflects sunlight, being near the water damages the eyes. This condition causes flesh-like growths to develop in the white of the eyes, affecting your vision and irritating your eyes.
Keratitis, also known as a corneal ulcer, involves an irritated or inflamed cornea. This dangerous condition is highly prone to infection, making it the most common cause of corneal blindness.
Fuch’s Dystrophy is characterized by a thick cornea that causes your vision to become cloudy. This eye condition is initiated by fluid buildup in the cornea.
Corneal scarring can affect your vision. The causes of corneal scarring include but are not limited to deep scratches, burns, lacerations, diseases, and improper use of contact lenses.
Retina disorders that we address at Anh Nguyen Ophthalmology include:
Macular degeneration is an eye disease most apparent in older individuals. In some cases of aging, damage to the macula occurs, causing blurred central vision.
Diabetic retinopathy is an eye condition that occurs in those suffering from diabetes. Diabetes can potentially cause changes in the blood vessels in the retina. Changes in the retina’s blood vessels can lead to vision changes and blindness.
Retinal detachment is an emergency that causes the retina to pull away from the connected blood vessels. This cuts off retinal contact with the blood vessels that provide the necessary oxygen and nutrients needed for healthy eye function.
Macular pucker involves scar tissue on the macula of the eye. The macula is located in the retina and can affect the sharp vision needed for driving and reading. This eye condition can cause blurred or distorted central vision.
Floaters and flashes can cause irregular spots to appear in your vision. Floaters stand out in bright areas and are caused by tiny specks of collagen in the vitreous area in the back of the eye.
During ICL surgery, your doctor places an implantable collamer lens in front of the natural lens in your eye and behind the iris. This helps to correct refractive errors that affect your vision. This treatment best suits individuals who wear contacts daily and seek an alternative option.
Ptosis is an eye condition that progresses 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 loss associated with ptosis.
Glaucoma is a common eye disease that develops from a blockage in the eye that causes a buildup of eye fluid. As fluid levels increase, the pressure inside the eye affects the optic nerves. Glaucoma can be treated with prescription eye drops and laser eye surgery.
