Mobile cataract surgeryCataract surgery has proven to be an effective way to restore clear vision in patients who have developed cataracts as part of the aging process. However, this procedure may also provide you with other benefits beyond the ability to see clearly again. A new study poses a potential relationship between patients who receive cataract surgery and those affected by dementia.

The study conducted included a surgery group and a control group. Within the surgery group, there were 20 patients, all of whom had dementia and received cataract surgery.

Mobile eye surgeonLASIK is very beneficial and helps restore your vision. However, it requires significant training and knowledge to deliver optimum results. It's important to choose the right eye surgeon for your procedure.

Although LASIK is an outpatient treatment, it requires a steady and experienced hand. To begin, numbing eye drops are administered so you don't feel pain or discomfort during your surgery. The entire process takes about 12-13 minutes to complete. During the procedure, a small flap will be made on the surface of your eye so the laser can access and reshape your cornea. This will allow your eye to properly reflect light to your retina, resulting in clearer vision. Once completed, the flap is then replaced and will heal naturally during the recovery process.

As you can see, LASIK is quite intricate and involves a lot of skill. That's why choosing the right doctor is so important. If an eye surgeon lacks the proper training, you and your vision...

Alabama LASIK surgeryLASIK eye surgery is a beneficial procedure that helps restore your vision. A new study conducted by the Cornea Research Foundation of America solidifies this concept by revealing new information about people who have used contact lenses prior to their LASIK surgery.

According to the Three-Year Longitudinal Survey Comparing Visual Satisfaction with LASIK and Contact Lenses, patients that previously used contact lenses were more satisfied with their LASIK results a year after their surgery when compared to non contact lens wearers. In fact, 88 percent of former contact users and 77 percent of former glasses wearers reported being strongly satisfied with their LASIK results three years later.

Overall, this study validates the safety and effectiveness of LASIK surgery resulting in patient satisfaction. Dr. Christopher Walton may recommend LASIK surgery if you have vision problems that require the use of contact lenses or glasses, such as...
