For the best in Cataract Surgery in Houston, Texas, you can count on Yankelove Cataract and Laser Specialists Over fifty percent of people over the age of 60, and quite a few younger than that, suffer from cataracts. Currently there is no medical treatment to reverse or prevent the development of cataracts. Once they form, the only way to see clearly again is to have them removed from within the eye.
For the best in LASIK in Houston, Texas, you can count on Yankelove Laser Specialists One of the most popular ways to correct vision is with a procedure called LASIK which uses a laser to change the curvature of the cornea. LASIK has quickly become the procedure of choice for most patients because they recover quickly and have fewer side effects and complications than with other methods of vision correction.
Presbyopia is a vision condition in which the lens loses its flexibility, making it difficult to focus on close objects. During the early and middle years of life, the crystalline lens of the eye has the ability to focus both near and distant images by getting thicker for near objects and thinner for distant objects. When this ability is lost, presbyopia results.
There are three main parts to the human eye: the cornea, the lens, and the retina. The retina is like a film in a camera. In normal vision, the cornea refracts (bends) light so it can be directed correctly through the lens and onto the retina accounting for 70% of the eye's focusing ability. When we experience vision problems requiring glasses, these are often the result of irregularities of the shape of the cornea. LASIK solves these issues by using lasers to reshape the curvature of the cornea to improve focus.
