Has your favorite pastime of reading become more difficult in the last several years? Do you find yourself constantly adjusting the distance from your eyes to your book or newspaper? Both circumstances may be the result of presbyopia. This vision disorder makes it increasingly harder for individuals to see clearly at close distances. Because many people assume that vision deterioration is a normal aspect of older age, they may not seek treatment for presbyopia. However, if your once clear eyesight has begun to diminish, consult an eye doctor as soon as possible. Should he determine that you do suffer from presbyopia, he can recommend a course of action to alleviate your close vision difficulties.
If you live in the Bay Area, Ellis Eye & Laser Medical Center can help you regain the unobstructed eyesight you once had. If you suspect that you suffer from presbyopia, call (800) 733-7427 to schedule a consultation. We also encourage those in the greater Marin County region to contact us for more information about how our Custom LASIK with wavefront technology can correct for a wide range of refractive errors.
Is your vision not as crisp or colorful as it once was? As this animated video demonstrates, it could be the result of cataracts.
Cataracts are a condition that affects the lens of the eye. In healthy eyes, the lenses are perfectly clear, allowing light to enter and converge without issue at the retina. Cataracts, which cause protein deposits to multiply and overtake the lenses, result in clouded and lackluster vision. Images appear less distinct, and colors are less vibrant. With the help of an eye surgeon, though, cataract problems can be permanently eliminated.
Ellis Eye & Laser Medical Center offers cataract surgery for individuals in the San Jose, Corte Madera, El Cerrito, Walnut Creek, Roseville, and San Francisco communities. Call (800) 733-7427 to find out more about our surgical services.
