Laser-based eye surgery has become an extremely popular and effective method for correcting nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism (irregular curvature of the lens), and is the most common procedure available for those who wish to eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses. Laser eye surgery is a type of refractive surgery which is less painful and requires less recovery time than many other types of eye surgery.
One of Dr. Khodabakhsh’s trademark procedures at the Beverly Hills Vision Institute is cataract surgery, the process of replacing the damaged or clouded natural lens with an implanted intraocular lens (IOL) to drastically improve the quality of vision for his patients. Cataract surgery is a safe, effective way to improve your vision, and is the most common procedure performed in the United States. Each year, over 2 million Americans undergo this microsurgery treatment, thereby having their natural eye lenses removed and replaced by an intraocular lens.
The term “glaucoma” refers to the group of diseases that affect the pressure along the optic nerve. Left untreated, glaucoma can severely impact the quality of vision and is the leading cause of blindness worldwide. If detected early, glaucoma surgery may be a viable option to slow or stop the deterioration of sight. Routine check ups with your ophthalmologist can help prevent permanent damage associated with glaucoma.
