Eye health is important, so people of all ages should make sure they are always doing what they can to ensure that their eyesight and their eye health is in good shape. The best way to do this is to make sure that you see an eye specialist regularly, and generally that means at least once a year, for routine exams and testing. This can be especially important for people with certain eye conditions or vision impairments, and in both cases, surgery may be something you need to consider. Here at Heritage Eye Care, our Arlington eye specialist can talk to you more about both cataract and LASIK eye surgery consultations.
When it comes to eye treatment, each case is different. Depending on your specific needs, your situation, and your preferences, different treatment methods can be discussed and explored. When it comes to conditions like cataracts, there are often limited options for treatment the more severe a case becomes. As cataracts develop and worsen, the lens of the eye can become so thick that you may actually be blind. When cataracts are this bad, prescription lenses will not do much, or anything at all, to help you. When cataracts develop this severely, laser eye surgery may be your only other option. With laser surgery, your thickened lenses can be removed and replaced with artificial ones, thus restoring your vision. Here at Heritage Eye Care, we can diagnose and treat cataracts as they develop. Our Arlington eye specialist can help you every step of the way and help with other issues. Laser surgery can also be used for cosmetic and convenience purposes, which is often the case for individuals who want LASIK to enhance their eyesight and reduce their need for prescription lenses.
